Michael Llodra, well-known looker/serve & volleyer/bon vivant is taking his place! Llodra was already slotted to play Olympics doubles with Wimbledon singles quarterfinalist Arnaud Clement. Come to think of it, why wasn’t Arnaud selected as Tsonga’s subsitute? (Not that I’m complaining!)
I guess when you have 15 players in the top 100 (more than any other country), you have some flexibility.
Get well soon, Jo-dub!
