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

Riba in 3, imo.

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.

What a hilariously bad match this looks to be.

That said, Riba in 3.

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

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

Riba will probably clinch it in 3 mug sets.

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 :lol: Looks unlikely to me, though

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

I'm half right, let's see if Nole can make my prediction come totally true.

A good journo should do better than this. That´s very far from the reason he is unlikely to fix a match
