WWW Wimbledon R2: [LL] Bolelli v [14] Wawrinka

Mr. Italy in 3 sets. Simone can beat Stan with the same weapons, serve, backhand. Simone's FH is better than Stan's. It's all going to come down to who serves better and I think Simone will bring it and these courts suit his game.

Wawrinka can't even play tennis anymore.

Re: WWW Wimbledon R2: [LL] Bolelli v [14] Wawrinka

Bolelli can't even hold service games against fischer

I think Wawa should have no problems even if he is 0/1000 in BP, just 7-6 7-6 7-6

No business losing this anyhow, not as if bolelli is a grass court player or anything

Re: WWW Wimbledon R2: [LL] Bolelli v [14] Wawrinka

Let's focus on the thread instead of the character assaults.

Simone won 44% of return points today. Heck, he broke De Schepper like 5 times. Simone can break serve, not that it's something he can rely on, but he can do it.

With that said, Stan isn't an amazing returner either. Simone hits the ball flatter, moves better and has a more penetrating forehand, Stan has the better backhand and serve. So whoever can produce their best tennis and force their style on the other most effectively will win. I think it's 50-50, but for me, Simone is going to be the one who dictates play in this match.

The fact the grass seems to be playing a bit quicker helps Simone as well.

Good try, but you really have nothing factwise to support your prediction of Bolelli in 3, nothing!

Wawrinka should win, maybe or 4 sets.

Never ever give up

Re: WWW Wimbledon R2: [LL] Bolelli v [14] Wawrinka

The facts are that Wawrinka isn't amazing on grass, and Simone has shown he can play on the surface. Also they match-up pretty evenly with each other. So if Simone brings his game, he definitely is in with a shot.

But I understand he's one of the more hated on this forum. Hopefully he gives a good account of himself and shuts people up.

Bolelli 6-0 6-1 6-1

He couldn't beat De Schepper but he'll beat Wawrinka in straights, wait and see

No, I don't trust Simone mentally. Which is why if it goes 5, I 100% expect Wawrinka to win. Simone will only win if he really is the one in total control of the match.
