Michael Llodra VS Sam Querrey match analysis

Not really sure why the Frenchman is the underdog in this match. Both players are pretty poor on a slow surface like the clay in Madrid, but I think Llodra has much more to offer than Querrey, who is particularly poor and usually without motivation in this kind of events. He knows he will not get far and plays accordingly. Llodra has solid net play and volleys, which he can utilize even from baseline play, while Sam Querrey is a pretty one-dimensional player that has problems with anyone solid. Llodra is not solid by any means, but he is still the better player on clay. His match on clay against Milos Raonic was a similar match-up and Llodra was quite competitive. I would rate Raonic higher than the American here, so at odds against, I simply have to back the Frenchman, since that is what offers value here. It may be a boring match, but Llodra has at least 50 percent chance to go through and his motivation should be higher than that of Sam Querrey, who never does well in this type of events.
