WWW Wimbledon 1R: Alison Riske vs. Yanina Wickmayer???

I've just noticed this GOAT 1st round encounter. Can Riske do this for the 2nd time in a row? Is it a benefit for her? Very curious about that match, hope for a stream.

A Riskey 1R for Yanina. I hope she can pull through.

Alison will win again. Yanina doesn't have a lot of confidence at the moment and she needs it with her gamestyle.

Vamos Alison

Re: WWW Wimbledon 1R: Alison Riske vs. Yanina Wickmayer???

Ugh I don't like this matchup twice... especially since this is Alison's first GS MD. I'm going to say Alison in 3, because Wickmayer isn't playing with much confidence right now.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

Riske's game is made for grass.
She definitely has an outside chance to beat her again.

It doesnt matter who wins, either way we'll get treated to lovely sounds coming from that court!

i think Riske got a taste of success and is now wanting more. It would be great to see an American teen make it to week 2 of Venus-don.
