Post Roland Garros: Andy Murray (4) vs. Simone Bolelli: How many games will Bolelli win???

So, Andy's next match is against Simone Bolelli. The match with Prodon was alright, but he could play a lot better, He has a chance to demolish his opponent here.

1. Andy is one of the best returners out there.
2. Bolelli is not good at returning.

Andy's groundstrokes have more sting than Bolelli's, his movement is better, he is better at everything.

I fail to see Bolelli getting more games than Prodon did. Prodon had an unorthodox game in the first set which allowed him to get a few games. I think he'll get less. 4/5 games for Bolelli.

What do you think?

ANDY MURRAY

TITLES: 38 and counting...

Bolelli will trash him. Flyboy will faint with excitement.

Bolelli's groundstrokes actually have more sting than Murray's but whatever, you can think what you want

You have to be kidding, right? Murray can hit the ball much harder than Bolelli and he is a much stronger and more powerful player than Bolelli. Bolelli is a weak compared to Andy.

Don't know what to expect from this, so I expect to be surprised.

Danger Ehren keeps delivering. What, I don't know. But he's on a roll.

Kiddo, it's too soon to be talking about how many games Murray will lose. Let's talk about matches first.

A ton of games and about a 25%-35% chance at winning.

Them all

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Murray does not look significantly stronger than Simone. And I doubt Simone hits his forehand with less pace than Andy.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Re: Roland Garros: Andy Murray (4) vs. Simone Bolelli: How many games will Bolelli wi

Meh, disrespecting Murray's opponents.. pah.

Yeah well. Eh, it's getting to the stage where it'd be both funny and sad from my point of view if Murray lost, cause of these friggin fail threads.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Re: Roland Garros: Andy Murray (4) vs. Simone Bolelli: How many games will Bolelli wi

Lets do matchups:
Serve=Bolelli slightly. Murray has serve percentages between 45-58% constantly. Simone serves at high percentages and has pop on it, and a good second serve.

Forehands=Bolelli by a wide margin.

Backhands=Murray, Simone has a good but very inconsistent backhand.

Volleys=Murray bit a little bit. Better transition game.

Movement=Murray.

Returning=Very wide advantage for Murray. Simone does have a more aggressive return, however, more potential danger.

Overall offensive ability=Bolelli, especially on clay.

Overall defensive ability=Murray, but this advantage is decreased since this is clay.

When I look at it, I think it's going to come down to how consistent Simone is and how well Murray serves and if he's offensive. If Murray doesn't serve well, and his defensive or put on the defensive by Simone, Simone can win this match, definitely. Murray can't push and stroll in this match. He has to bring it.

On that note, I hope Simone takes Murray to 5.. just to shut the OP up. Okay that might be hoping for too much.

Buuut, Murray's got this easily enough, regardless of the above nonsense.

Re: Roland Garros: Andy Murray (4) vs. Simone Bolelli: How many games will Bolelli wi

Bolelli will win like 10-12 games probably but he hits the ball twice as heavy and hard as Murray.
Bolelli's forehand is one of the bests on tour, and the backhand is good too.
It depends so much how Simone is playing tomorrow, he is sooo inconsistent.
