Victime de vertiges et d'une terrible migraine, Michaël Llodra n'a pu aller au bout de son duel contre Tommy Robredo. Comme Julien Benneteau au tour précédent, l'Espagnol a profité de l'abandon d'un Français pour passer.
He retired against Robredo. It wasn't because of his ankle but he felt ill with neck pain and dizziness. The Doc thinks he took too much medecines the past week because of his injury
"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".
He was injured as he withdraw from doubles today. In shanghai he entered doubles with Jo In Tokyo he was teaming up with Lopez while Gael and Richard are playing together I think Mika and Richard was not able to make cut together otherwise it was a strange choice.
It's Gael/Richard and Mika/Lopez in Tokyo which is strange not Mika/Jo in Shanghai. Mika is the titular in doubles for DC if Bennet he's not ready Mika will have to play with Jo, Richard or Arno if he plays with Lopez it don't help for DC that's why I think Richard and Mika didn't make the cut in Tokyo. Anyway Bennet will maybe be ready but in cas of injury of Mika i hope our double team won't be Richard/Gael
