And Llodra strikes again! Takes out Tipsy. Good result!
Llodra has played well here to date. I'm just watching the match with Paire, joining it to watch Paire equalise the match by winning the second set. And he just broke ML with the most exquisite cross court backhand hit from & to a sharp angle. Some excellent tennis from both men, but BP is now 3-1 up & one feels he has the momentum, with ML making errors. Edit
- and BP breaks ML again, playing with conviction & some beautiful, crisp shots. Very easy on the eye.
And BP just broke again at 5-1, to clinch it to love with some superb, winners hit with panache. Babblelot,
I can see why you like his game - I really enjoyed watching him play just now.
So that's the first semi over with. Gasquet is playing Neiminen & the match has just started. Real life beckons, but I'll watch what I can. I hope RG can win it.
My pair Marray / Fleming lost their semi, but it was closely contested, 7-6,6-7,10-12. Well done to their opponents Brunstrom / Klaasen for beating the number one seeds to get to the final. Llodra still has a chance to advance in the doubles with Gicquel if they win their doubles semi-finals.
