HELLO, good afternoon and welcome to my blog. I mentioned Michael Llodra the other night as a sure-fire winner in the second round at Wimbledon and he duly came up trumps, defeating Brazilian Ricardo Mello in four sets. His next opponent is the Taiwanese 27-year-old Yen-Hsun Lu. No disrespect to his overall career record, but in recent times Lu has shone about as bright as Iceland in December. Back Llodra here for a nice easy 46 per cent return on your investment, then treat yourself to a bowl of strawbs and cream washed down with a little glass of champers.
The Frenchman is the proud owner of one of the tournament’s most consistent first serves and one of the most pleasing left-handed backhand techniques seen in the modern game. He’ll come through this test comfortably although he won’t have it as easy when he faces, most likely, the in-form Novak Djokovic in the fourth round.
The match is scheduled to start at 12pm tomorrow (Saturday).
Good luck & happy punting!
