    No way he is like when you have a ps3 broken joystick and try to play a football or tennis game, the only direction it would move is forward, Im afraid he will go all the way to the other side.

    Last time Llodra made a run at Bercy didn't it take Soderling to stop him? Pretty sure Soderling ended up winning the tournament that year.

    That was a fun match to watch. Hopefully Llodra can start making some returns to pressure Sam a bit.

    At least its boring in a different way from the 40 stroke rally every point style matches of djokovic/Nadal/Murray.

    Querrey is not a very good returner of serve

    Holmes: This. Spot on.

    Great to see some serve and volley instead of the usual endless rallies.

    If you liked this game maybe you should watch a baseball game or see a machine throwing balls to the serve square, is about the same.

    Go Daveed out-grind this Frenchman!

    I know the grind-fest rallies can be a bit boring, but S&V on EVERY single point can be boring as well...

    It a breath of fresh air from the grinders and baseline bashing. It not about like...but seeing different tennis playing well.

    The year has to be equal to all players.

    You must be new to tennis. How much money did you lose?

    Totally entertaining match -- unfortunately for Querry, Llodra was on Falla in his graceful finessing way

    Eh, even if there's one player who S&Vs on every point, that's still just a drop of S&V among the endless number of players who never S&V and endless number of matches with maybe 1 S&V point or two all match long.

    I thought this match was great. If every match was like this I might think otherwise, but they're not.

    Maybe if everyone was playing S&V like in the 80s/90s, it would be boring. But no one does it now. So if there's just one player left it's not boring, it's a frickin' living legend. The last of an endangered species.

    The key is variation. If everything is the same, of course it's boring. You need to have players that play with a different style. The last couple of years, the main playing style that was being used was the "boring" (double handed) baseline game that we see now. Players like Andy Murray, Djokovic, Simon, Seppi, Tipsarevic, Fish, Nishikori, Ferrer, Hewitt play that game. It's refreshing to see something different once in a while. Federer is an exception. I've been watching him for 10 years and he doesn't even start to bore me.

    By your signature I would say you are, I'm 35 years old, playing and watching tennis since I was 7 if that answers your question. The second part of the question I don't get what you mean.

    I guess you missed the whole 90's deal then? :-?

    There are many extremes, from serve and volleying being the norm on quick courts to extreme grinding rallies that are nothing more than tests of endurance. It is best to have conditions where many styles can coexist.

    Stop being irrational and acting like one of the only players who still regularly serves and volleys is killing tennis. It is a bit dramatic.

    Llodra is fun to watch. He plays purely on instinct. That makes for fun tennis because you watch him make spectacular volleys and laugh at some of his pathetic net approaches that lead to easy passing shots winners.
