Default Great 4th rd matchup: Joakim Johansson vs Michael Llodra

I hope they show at least some of this match on Tuesday. It'll be the battle of the tall (6'3") serve & volley Frenchman Llodra versus the even taller (6'6") ace-machine Swede Johansson (Note: This is Joakim and not the other talented Swede Thomas).

They've played once this year in Toronto, Canada on hard courts with Joakim winning 1-6, 7-6, 6-1.

At Indian Wells in 2003 I saw Llodra play doubles and was really impressed with his strong serve and soft hands at net. His game reminds me of Tim Henman's.

Have yet to see much of J.Johansson but have read all about his monster serve. Would love to see Joakim play the 6'10" Ivo Karlovic....but then again maybe this would just turn into an ace bore-fest.
