Ivan Ljubicic wins Lyon Grand Prix Title

Ivan Ljubicic defeated Michael Llodra 7-5, 6-3 to win the Lyon Grand Prix title.

Ljubicic served seven aces and broke Llodra three times on his way to the title in a match that lasted 1 hour and 36 minutes.

Llodra saved two break points in the sixth game of the first set. He began to read his opponent’s serve, but still failed to convert break chances in the ninth and 11th games. Trailing 6-5, Llodra sent a forehand in the net to give up two break points. Ljubicic converted the first when Llodra volleyed wide.

Llodra broke in the first game of the second set with a forehand return down the line, and won his next game serve at love.

The Frenchman soon let Ljubicic level at 2-2 after missing two easy volleys. The Croat kept up the pressure and went ahead 4-2 with another passing shot, before closing out the match at love on serve.

Ivan Ljubicic vs Michael Llodra at the Grand Prix de Tennis de Lyon Final

Michael Llodra upset Gilles Simon 6-7 6-3 7-6 in the semi-finals of the Lyon Grand Prix.

Simon lost control in the second set after his opponent broke in the fourth game. In the deciding tiebreak, Simon could not handle Llodra’s attacking game and bowed out with a long volley.

Although he is also set to take part in the Valencia Open next week, Simon ruled himself out of the race for the two remaining spots for the London event.

“I have two tournaments left but in my mind, the race for the Masters has been over for quite a while. But I will still play as well as I can in Valencia and (Paris) Bercy.” Simon said.

During the match, Llodra served 24 aces and did not face a single break point.

In Sunday's final he will play against Ivan Ljubicic, who beat Arnaud Clement 6-2 6-4.

Ljubicic didn’t face a break point and won on his first match point when the Frenchman sent a forehand wide.

“My serve was not as good as the other days, but I felt pretty good on court,” said Ljubicic. “For me it was the perfect match.”

“I’ve been playing really good tennis recently and I hope I can continue like this until the end of the season,” Ljubicic said.

Clement looked tired after playing nearly three hours in the quarterfinals against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

“He was far better than me,” Clement said. “The score reflects the reality of this match. He played very well and I made more mistakes than yesterday.”

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga falls to Clement in Lyon quarters

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga falls to Clement in Lyon quarters

Arnaud Clement upset Jo-Wilfried Tsonga lost 5-7, 6-4, 7-6 to reach the semifinals of the Lyon Grand Prix.

Tsonga, who served 27 aces but won only 10 points on his second serve, came back from a four-point deficit in the tiebreaker to level at 5-5, but then couldn’t handle Clement’s returns.

Clement will next meet Ivan Ljubicic, who beat Florent Serra 7-6 (6), 6-2, serving 16 aces and breaking his opponent twice in the second set.

“It’s a great feeling to get into my first semifinal of the year,” the Ljubicic said. “If I can finish the year in the top 20 that will be a really good year for me. I feel like I am getting back to where I belong with my ranking. I’m feeling good on the court again.”

Gilles Simon scored a 76 63 victory over Julien Benneteau and still has a slight chance of qualifying for next month’s eight-man ATP World Tour Finals in London.

“I came here to try and win the tournament,” said Simon. “There are two matches left, two matches that will of course be very difficult.”

Simon will play in Saturday's semifinals against Michael Llodra, who defeated Marc Gicquel 7-6 (5), 6-4.

Tsonga and Ljubicic into 2nd round at Lyon Grand Prix

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga defeated Kevin Kim 7-6 7-6 in the first round of the Lyon Grand Prix.

Neither player faced a break point in the first set, but Kim saved two in the second as Tsonga started to get on top. The American missed his chance to even the match as Tsonga rallied from 5-3 down in the second-set tiebreaker.

“My tennis wasn’t all there, but the desire was there,” Tsonga said. “When I stepped onto the court I knew I was not going to play well. I just played enough tennis to win.”

Ivan Ljubicic advanced with a 63 64 win over Martin Vassallo Arguello.

During the match Ljubicic won 29 of 33 points on first serve including seven aces. The defeat would have been heavier for Vassallo Arguello if he hadn’t saved 10 of 12 break points.
