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.

Bolelli in 4.

Bolelli can't even hold service games against fischer :help:

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

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.

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 :lol:

Do you trust Bolelli mentally Filo? I say Wawa in 5

Filo V.
06-20-2011, 08:14 PM
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.

I usally like your posts Flyboy(with some exeptions), but this is totally delosional utter crap? Do you really think there is any chance of Bolelli win Wawrinka on any surface, let along on Grass and in 3 sets? Bolelli in a 2nd round of a grass slam, is a crime, IMO, but he take advantage of his luckiest ever LL spot, so congrats to him, but Stan will save the little that there is to be saved on Grass, cause after Seppi wins a grass tournament, it was the dead of this surface...

Come on, I was supporting today, with all my heart, Gil against Sela, and I knew from the right beggining that his chances were almost zero (even when i was a break up in the 1st set). Of course I have always that secret hope, but I don't say that (realisticly speaking) he could beat Sela. Imagine Bolelli vs Stan! 3x times even more unballanced!

With that said, and agaisnt a FIT Stan, there is no way Simone can beat Stan, with all due respect to the Italian and Flyboy...

Why not? Bolelli can really play well on grass... and Wawrinka is utter shit on grass.

Stan, stan, he's our boy, if he can't do it no one... will.

Wawa in 4.

Mugwrinka has no reason to win, he's not in Olderer's half.

Just think of it that flyboy doesn't know too much about tennis and is merely a fanboy. Which is fine of course.

I would say even the actual reason why Filo v thought it would be 3-0 was right too. Gave a good explanation before the match.

This is an enjoyable thread to read through.

Congrats to the 9 people, including me of course, who voted for Simone, you're all amazing and tennis Jesus has granted us our expectations. To the two other people who voted Simone in straights, you're amazing, you know you're tennis as much as I do ;)
