Michael Llodra

Born in Paris in 1980, Michaël Llodra is one of the best double players in the history of French Tennis. Professional from 1999 to 2014, he remains very involved in the world of Tennis.

He grew up in a sports family (his father is a former football player at PSG) and discovered tennis at a very young age in the Chatou club. After a stint in a sport-study institute in the South of France, he toured the countries of the East where he won 2 Future tournaments. This marks the start of a flamboyant professional career.

2010 was one of the busiest years in terms of victory and emotion: it started the year by winning the Open 13, eliminating Marcos Baghdatis, Robin Soderling (seeded No. 1), Mischa Zverev and wins the final against Julien Benneteau. In July, during the 1/4 final of the Davis Cup against Spain he won one of the most important matches of his career, against Fernando Versasco (n ° 10 in the world). He also won the double with J. Benneteau. During the Paris-Bercy tournament, he successively defeated Strace, Isner, Djokovic and Davydenko. Thanks to all these victories, he will reach 23rd place in the world in singles in the ATP classification, which was the best of his career. In doubles, he has the best French prize list. Often accompanied by Fabrice Santoro, Arnaud Clément or Nicolas Mahut, he won 2 times the Australian Open and 1 time Wimbledon as well as 23 other titles. He also distinguished himself at the London 2012 Olympic Games by reaching the final with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, but failed against the pair Bob and Mike Bryan.

Recently retired from the courts, Michaël Llodra is now a consultant on France TV and notably supports his former double teammate Nicolas Mahut on the ATP circuit. Michaël Llodra has also been the director of the Open Deauville Trouville Vitalépargne this year!
