Here's an article from AFP http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5...U83EVC2u_i9flg :

Les Français Arnaud Clément et Michaël Llodra se sont inclinés face à la paire tchèque Lukas Dlouhy/Pavel Vizner 3-6, 6-3, 10-5, lors de leur deuxième rencontre de poule du Masters de double, mercredi à Shanghai
Ils avaient déjà perdu lundi leur premier match au "super tie-break" face à la paire Mark Knowles/Daniel Nestor, malgré le gain de la première manche et deux balles de match dans la deuxième.
Deux défaites qui ne laissaient à la paire française que des chances très théoriques d'aller encore en demi-finales.
"On a une nouvelle fois bien commencé, a commenté Michaël Llodra, mais on a fait un mauvais jeu dans la deuxième manche qui nous a coûté le set. Au super tie-break, c'est toujours un peu la loterie. Rien n'est fini, on a le mérite d'avoir gagné un set à chaque fois. Avec un concours de circonstances on peut peut-être encore aller en demies, mais pour l'instant on est spectateurs."
"J'étais peut-être un poil meilleur qu'au premier match mais encore insuffisant", a constaté pour sa part Arnaud Clément.

I'm including a Google translation which was pretty good for Google but clearly not as good as our human translators (Marine, Truc... ) :

The French Arnaud Clement and Michael Llodra were
Inclined facing the Czech pair Lukas Dlouhy / Pavel
Vizner 3-6, 6-3, 10-5, in their second match
Hen's Masters double Wednesday in Shanghai
They had already lost their first match Monday at
"Super tiebreak" to pair Mark Knowles / Daniel
Nestor, despite the gain in the first round and two
Matchpoints in the second.
Two defeats, which did not leave the French pair
That very theoretical chances to go even in semi
Finales.
"It was once again a good start," commented
Michael Llodra, but it was a poor game in the
Second round that has cost us the match. In super tie-
Break, it's always a bit of lottery. Nothing is
Finally, it has the merit of having won a set each
Once. With a combination of circumstances it is perhaps
Still going to be half, but for the moment it is
Spectators. "
"I was perhaps a bit better than the first match
But still not enough ", said for his part
Arnaud Clement.
