Both Serve & Volleyers in this match? :eek: How often does that happen? :confused:

Llodra age 31 vs. the italian age 20. I think Llodra will win due to his sheer experience. You can't out Serve & Volley Llodra can you? :confused:

I think Llodra should prevail in two tie-breaks.

Hard to say, i expect at least 2Tie-breaks, maybe even all 3. Both have great serves and are bad returners, court is fast and indoors, so really BPīs will be rare, Llodra is more experienced player, but in TBīs everything is possible and if Olivetti will in TB hit 5 service winners from 5 serves, Llodra can be under pressure, miss few 1st serves and after 2nd Ollivetti can take chances, but the same can happen otherwise, i see this match totally open, the one who will be hitting more 1st serves in TBīs should win this

Look at who is playing, his serve is too much for guy like Llodra and Llodraīs style should be too much for him too, pretty good serve-lefty serve and volleys to back-up that, unless Ollivetti has world-class passing shots canīt see him break Llodraīs serve more than once - so thatīs why i expect tie-breaks

might be this time...
Olivetti has several lapses during a match so I won't be surprised if Llodra manages to break him once in every set.

Yep- he had 9 double faults- that's 2 entire service games worth.

If he serves as good as people say he does, then I really gotta see this guy in action. Too bad the match starts to late :facepalm:.

Olivetti will struggle with Llodras huge second serve. Llodra is a good doubles player and usually makes a few cracking returns here and there. Besides, Olivetti won't get the crowd support he had against Fish.

One tiebreak and one break for Llodra.

Llodra is good at returning big serves and very hard to break for a poor returner.

He's always very motivated in France.

I expect him to win in 2 sets, maybe won't even need any tie-break.
