Llodra vs. Youzhny = 3rd set tie-break (Cincy – 1R)

Earlier this year I mentioned that Philipp Kohlschreiber and Robin Soderling made the 2nd pair among active players to notch three matches against each other with a final set tie-break. Michael Llodra [32] and Mikhail Youzhny [17] joined them today… They played also a deciding tie-break set last week at the Canadian Open, both first round meetings won the Frenchman, however, Youzhny had his chances on both occasions – last week was two points away at 6:5* (30 all), today he had two mini-match points at 4:4 in the 3rd set (one saved by Llodra with a second serve ace!), in the tie-break led 2:0.
# Three matches between Llodra and Youzhny decided in the 3rd set tie-break:
2006, Davis Cup: Youzhny 6-2, 4-6, 7-6(3)
2011, Montreal, 1R: Llodra 3-6, 6-3, 7-6(4)
2011, Cincinnati, 1R: Llodra 7-5, 3-6, 7-6(4)
Their current record in the 3rd set TB: Llodra 9-12; Youzhny 17-16

    Hola, otra vez
    Cuando hago estadísticas sobre Masters Series (títulos, victorias, finales…), debería contar los Grand Prix Championship Series (1970-1989)???
    ¿Cuál es tu opinión?

    Pienso que esto es muy interesante, pero me gusta más el periodo 1990-2011 cuando hago estas estadísticas.
