Grand Prix de Tennis de Lyon – Final

The 3 mens finals are all on at the same time. They just don’t consider us traders. This one looks like the best one to trade. The Cilic final will be one sided so back Cilic if you want to trade that one. The St Petersburg final has 2 low ranking players so wont attract too much money IMO

The Lyon final is on and has live video.

13:30 – Ljubicic v Llodra

Rankings are 29 and 107. Head to heads are 1-0 to Llodra.

Don’t be put of by his low ranking. Llodra’s serve was very impressive yesterday against Giles Simon. Ljubicic also has one of the best serves around at the moment.

On a couple of occasions in yesterday’s semi, Llodra had to stretch to reach a volley and an overhead and his groans gave away the pain he was in. He has had problems with his left arm( he’s a left hander!) and I wondered if this would cause him problems. Straight after the first occurrence yesterday he served a double fault. Its possible he will be in some discomfort today so watch out for that.

Ljubicic was very impressive in his semi and he is my favourite today.

I would expect at least 1 tie break. Backing Ljubicic on serve should be a solid strategy

Update: Very tight first set. Ljubicic had chances to break but didnt take them until the game score was 6-5. The second set seemed to be going Llodra’s way. He was 2-1 up with a break of serve. The thought he had won the next game for 3-1 but a line call was over ruled. He was shaken by that and ended up losing the game for 2-2. He seemed to lose heart after that and Ljubicic won the Match 7-5, 6-3.
