Play tennis with an Olympic Medalist
May 2017 - Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc
Oetker Collection and the SomeWhere Club bring together Michaël Llodra and Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc for a very special combination of tennis and an evening of fine wine.
Portrait of Michaël Llodra
Michaël Llodra (born 18 May 1980) is a French former professional tennis player. He is a successful doubles player with three Grand Slam championships and an Olympic Silver medal, and has also had success in singles, winning five career titles and gaining victories over Novak Djokovic, Juan Martín del Potro, Tomáš Berdych, Robin Söderling, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Nikolay Davydenko, Janko Tipsarevic and John Isner. Llodra has been called «the best volleyer on tour» and is one of the few remaining practitioners of the classic serve-and-volley style of playing.
Enjoy tennis and discover Michael’s passion for wine.
On the beautiful terrace of the Hotel Cap-Eden-Roc, you will start this uncommon experience by a breakfast in company of Michaël Llodra who will give you some dietary advice. Then comes the time of the muscular warm-up, sample of what the champion puts into practice before each great tournament.
Finally, the long awaited moment, on one of the magnificent clay tennis courts, a face to face with Michaël Llodra. For once, you will take the place of Djokovic or Murray and will be able to understand why they are admiring the assassin reverse of the Frenchman.
You will probably leave a little tired of this experience, but happy to have had the privilege to live it.
A series of stretches will get you back in shape before a nice unexpected evening with the champion. Indeed, Michaël Llodra will invite you to discover a series of three great wines for an aperitif. This is his other passion, which he will share with pleasure.
