I'm Picking Llodra this grass season
« on: June 11, 2013, 02:19:13 PM »
If this "grass season" (including W) were scored like the US Open series, my pick is Llodra.

 ;-()  :thumbs-up:


To do what exactly I'm not sure, but he's going to rack up some points!!!!

Llodra is my pick!

because you like him?
or you can sense he has a huge potencial that will soon awake?
or its just a hunch?
or you feel it in your guts?

I like his game. It's well suited to fast surfaces. Hopefully the grass is fast this year and he gets some favorable draws.

Bring the old grass at Wimbledon (circa 2000), Make Llodra 8 years younger and he will win his first W.

Watched the RG men's dubs final last night.
Llodra looked very solid.
The French had the momentum on their side going into the TB, but at the end (the final 3 points) Mahut cracked under pressure and The B Bros. prevailed yet again.  Mahut was devastated,  Llodra was unflappable and being the good partner he is, consoled his tear soaked compatriot.
CONK da ball!!!

Llodra has always been a class. I adore his game, if the courts were faster he would have much better results.

Funny you bring the court speed issue Babbs  :)~ You were always like it was players fault not court speed  :)

What I was saying in Miami is that the court speed doesn't preclude players from developing an all-court game like Tommy. I also noted that Tommy is a baseliner with variety and not afraid to come to the net.

Llodra is straight up old-school, and his best results are actually on the fastest courts.

Fair enough, but Tommy also benefits more from fast courts. Halle is the best example how good his volleys are. Even fast HC's.

Llodra just withdrew from Queens with a hamstring injury.

What a jinx!  :rofl_2:
