    break point number 10. Maybe he's just trying to work on the metric scale?

    No magic on the break points. 10 for 10 wasted.

    Fed loves coming forward, fed loves to s and volley at wimbledon, not most points like llodra but he is capable of playing like llodra.

    Llodra has played far more groundstrokes than volleys, The quick graphic was something like 64 vs 38? I only saw it for a moment, could be off

    Llodra's hardly coming in on every point, especially on the return. He's also bullying Ferrer with his groundstrokes. Great, all-around game.

    That was one of the most lopsided sets I ever saw and yet Llodra didn't win the set. Will be interesting to see if he can stay in this 2nd set or if he'll go away.

    What a weird set.

    Ferrer had to save break points in every single service game and he took his first (or second) which was also a set point...

    Ferrer 7-5

    so far llodra played 40 points on serve... and ferrer 83 (more than 2 times the amount of points played on serve !!!).
    damned... too bad he couldn't convert one of his break points. :-?

    Will Llodra hang in there and finish the set or do we see him retire in a moment when he's down 5-0
