Llodra sees off countryman

Llodra lost to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga last year but claimed the fourth ATP World Tour title of his career with a 6-3 6-4 victory.
One break of serve in each set was enough for the 29-year-old, who did not face a single break point on his delivery.
The victory was timely for Llodra, who came into the event unseeded and having won only one match in four tournaments this season.
Wins over Marcos Baghdatis and top seed Robin Soderling set him on his way as he denied Benneteau a first main tour title.
