Michaël Llodra

Born in Paris in 1980, Michaël Llodra is one of the best doubles 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 sporty family (his father was a former soccer player for the PSG) and discovered tennis at a very young age in the club of Chatou. After a passage in an institute of sport-study in the South of France, he makes a tour in the Eastern countries where he will win 2 Futures tournaments. This marked the beginning of a flamboyant professional career.

The year 2010 was one of the fullest in terms of victory and emotion: he began the year by winning the Open 13, eliminating Marcos Baghdatis, Robin Soderling (seeded #1), Mischa Zverev and won the final against Julien Benneteau. In July, in the Davis Cup quarter-final against Spain, he won one of the most important matches of his career, against Fernando Versasco (world number 10). He also won the doubles with J. Benneteau. At the Paris-Bercy tournament, he successively beat Strace, Isner, Djokovic and Davydenko. Thanks to all these victories, he will reach the 23rd place in the world in singles in the ATP ranking, which was the best of his career. In doubles, he has the best French record. Often accompanied by Fabrice Santoro, Arnaud Clément or Nicolas Mahut, he won the Australian Open twice and Wimbledon once, as well as 23 other titles. He also distinguished himself during the 2012 Olympic Games in London 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 accompanies his former doubles teammate Nicolas Mahut on the ATP circuit. Michaël Llodra is also since this year the director of the Open Deauville Trouville Vitalépargne!
