15:30 – Llodra v Baghdatis
Rankings are 79 and 36. They haven’t met before.
Baghdatis’ first serve still isn’t working like it should but he is playing so well that he’s managing without it.
Llodra was taken to 3 sets in the last round by Roger-Vasselin which suggests he isn’t on top form.
I’d expect Baghdatis to come through fairly easily. Back him on serve. He wins a high percentage of service games despite the first serve issues.
Update: Baghdatis broke serve early but Llodra pulled him back to a tie break which Llodra won. Llodra also took the second for an unexpected victory.
Llodra won 7-6, 6-4.
