This match was closer than the score suggests but Llodra was amazingly clutch saving a TON of break points.

That was just so F***** EPIC. Llodra is my favourite player, and I also have money on him as the winner of tournament, E/W so I'm already pretty good.

He was volleying close to perfection here, and was making Tipsa earn it on every big point.

Did anyone notice Tipsy trying to cheat on the set point at **76 in the breaker? He sent the forehand long, and went for the ball in his shorts in hopes of a let. It came out too, but he had already missed the shot. Could be accident of course, but I don't think so. The last time I saw that was Souza against Ginepri in USO. The latter was 100% on purpose, but luckily didn't get. But I digress.

ALLEZ!

I saw it and had the same thoughts as you, but I still think/hope it wasn't on purpose.

I've seen players do that before, but never realized it would be a let/ replay the point- is that the same when a players hat flies off?

First time it's a let, if it happens twice they lose the point. I have seen people losing a point because of that. I can't remember who it was, but it was in a slam, and definately not on purpose. He pushed the second ball pretty far down in his pocket after that.

Quite an interesting match. Mika was just slightly better and that's it. I hope he can take down DelPo tomorrow...

Mika :yeah:

Those missed set points by Tipsarevic pretty much sum him up tbh. He served for three of them (?), so he had an immediate advantage on those, and missed attempted winners on at least two occasions. If he hadn't won several titles late last year, you'd think he was virtually the same player (as early 2011 Tipsarevic).

Credit to Llodra, though. Still hanging around the top 50 with runs like these on his favoured French indoors. Del Potro will be very tricky tomorrow, but he ran him close enough in Rotterdam last week to suggest that he might trouble him again.

Excellent stuff from Llodra. I wish he played more singles, but it´s totally understandable his focus is more on doubles nowadays.
