WWW Queens R1: Paolo Lorenzi vs Pere Riba

Who will win this amazing battle between the two biggest contenders for Wimbledon (barring King Oscar, of course)?

Riba in 3, imo.

PORTUGUESE ARMADA!!!


*JOĂO SOUSA* *GASTĂO ELIAS* *FREDERICO GIL* *PEDRO SOUSA* *RUI MACHADO*

Disgusting match on a grass court.

I think Lorenzi will win in straights, then win one game vs. Nole.

Lorenzi is going to have to within a month when he loses most of his points from last year.

Riba is a top 100 type talent to me, but he doesn't have anything in his game that suggests he can even be average on grass.

Re: WWW Queens R1: Paolo Lorenzi vs Pere Riba

Riba serves better. If Lorenzi couldn't beat to Crugnola on clay, difficult he can win tomorrow.

Re: WWW Queens R1: Paolo Lorenzi vs Pere Riba

It's unfair you have a match like this, and then Gasquet vs. Nishikori.

Riba will probably clinch it in 3 mug sets.

Re: WWW Queens R1: Paolo Lorenzi vs Pere Riba

Lorenzi collapsed from 2.50ish to 1.13 just before the match. No setbetting though, so possibly Riba was injured - in the Koellerer fix setbetting on betfair got hit for 100k for example.

Missed this, I was out, but it would be very very funny if Riba has fixed a match Looks unlikely to me, though

Because he isn't from the former USSR and his name isn't also Koellerer? Gotta love the logic.
