These two last met last year at the Australian Open where Murray won comfortably, with some stunning shots on the side.

Winner to play either Victor Hanescu or Leonardo Mayer.

is Llodra the one who made a racist/sexist comment about a Chinese woman?  Or was that Benneteau?  For some reason I always get them mixed up  confused

Can't remember whether the woman was Chinese,but yeah,Llodra was the one who made the racist comment.His whole attitude about it afterwards was horrible too.

As soon as I saw Llodra in Andy's draw I thought of that AO match. It was fantastic, really good fun. Andy played very, very well, he put on a bit of an exhibition really. It was played in a lovely spirit too.

As for what Llodra said, it's not nice by any means, and it is uncalled for, but I've also heard far worse. I'm not defending it, just saying I've heard worse.

Llodra’s first comments in Barlow’s direction came in French. They were reported to include “putain chinoise,” which translates roughly as “Chinese whore.”

“He was looking directly at me,” said Barlow, who is Korean-American. “He didn’t yell it particularly loudly. He was turned toward the baseline, toward us, and he looked right at me and said this comment.”

“My words were not aimed at China,” Llodra began.

“I love Chinese —  I can totally make love with a Chinese girl.”

I take it back, it's revolting and pervy, but it was still a great match against Andy.
