15:30 – Kamke v Llodra
Rankings are 69 and 23. They haven’t played before.
Kamke had a very easy win in the last round beating Schoorel 6-0, 6-2. His opponent didn’t put up much of a fight.
Llodra beat his friend and doubles partner Bennetteau in the last round. Llodra is defending champion here and will be very motivated not only to defend his title and ranking points but because it is on home soil for him.
Kamke does ok in the Challenger events but doesn’t have much success against the higher ranked players on the main Tour although has taken sets from Kohlschreiber, Tsonga and Ferrer in recent matches.
Llodra on French soil is a massive favourite. Back him on serve or from the start.
He holds serve 85% to Kamke’s 74%.
