Well, I doubt he would get stomped you know, it's most likely that he can lose, but he can also win, it's 50-50, Yukimura could have stomped Fuwa without using yips if he wanted to get serious. Ryoga probably has some of Ryoma's techniques plus a super shot, and Yukimura can see through every shot. He also has Yips, unless Ryoga has TnK or enough willpower, he won't be able to break yips, and if that happens, the winner is already decided. We can't forget that Yukimura can put some people in a trance and make them sleep. We are talking of the one that, before Tezuka achieved TnK, nobody could reach him, he's one of the strongest, so Ryoga won't stomp such a player.
Ryoga stomping Yukimura? Your just guessing. Its not based on anything.
If its coz Ryoga returned Byoudouin's serve, well we dont know if Byoudouin was using full power, and Yukimura has shown power is nothing to him. He easily returned Big Bang serve and Sanada's Lightning.
You forget Yukimura already has the massive power up of being able to see through all special shots.
Please understand that Fuwa not using Closed Eye would have lost faster as he would have witnessed his efforts being completely quelled which would frighten him into yips. As a matter of fact, Fuwa is the worst Yips sufferer out of Tooyama, Sanada and Echizen so far as Fuwa was put to sleep. Using Fuwa is a bad example. As strong as Fuwa was shown to be, Yukimura handled him.
The point of Yuki and Kintarou playing is that their roles aren't really important or necessary in SPoT anymore. Yuki was the final boss of PoT, but he really doesn't have a role in SPoT. Kintarou isn't really a rival anymore...Both of them can get crushed, but still maintain their 11-20 rankings and that can be it.
They are very important characters, Kintarou is Echizen's counterpart, Yukimura is Sanada's main rival, Yukimura needs development, Kintarou has yet to show more improvement appart from the clone technique. They're two characters that need to be in top 10, both of them are above players like atobe, shiraishi, Irie, etc.

I wouldn't want to see a bunch of characters who just played in the 11-20 matches playing again. Kintarou and Yukimura just had their matches, and they have their place on the team already. Akutsu and Sanada getting to play is more important, I think.
As for Yukimura getting stomped by Ryoga I'd say this:
Ryoga is one of the most mysterious characters in PoT universe if not the most mysterious. We don't know anything about his powers and skills (movie doesn't count). But I'd say that Ryoga for me is the real number 2 after Byodouin. We have two most mysterious players in PoT sequel - Tanegashima and Ryoga. We don't know anything about them and what to wait from them but Ryoga's real power for me is much higher than Tangeshima. It is just speculation of course but somehow I have a feeling that it is the truth. We'll just have to wait and see how this will turn out.
As for Yukimura.. he is the monster, true monster of PoT but I doubt his YIPS will help him against Ryoga. I bet score will be 6-0, Ryoga wins.
As for Echizen and who will he play against... now it is simple: either Ryoga or Byodouin. Echizen can't play against Byodouin. It is too early for him to challenge Houou. As for Ryoga... I'd say Echizen is weaker than Ryoga and will definetly being crushed during the match but as we saw many times before he will evolve during this match and surpass his elder brother in the end. I don't think we'll see Ryoga anymore after this match.
Byodouin VS Kazuya predictions. Wow... Very hard to predict anything about those two. Byodouin is definitely stronger but Kazuya won't give up so easily. I am sure this will be the "match of the year 2012,2013" in New Prince of Tennis manga. I am sure we'll see something incredible (especially in anime version)
In the end I just want to make my predictions of the high-school players which will be in Top 20 in the end:
Though last one is debatable I hope he will stay.

Tanegashima vs Sanada will be beyond amazing too, Sanada will win after unleashing the true power of Black Aura.
It's true that Echizen will face Ryoga, Ryoma will win, he will start winning, Ryoga makes a comeback and stays above him, and Echizen will evolve again and completely destroy him, his power ups are amazing, probably the best in the manga.
In opposition, Letal, after the development that Shuuji's received, I can't see him just getting eliminated. I see Sanada either losing to Shuuji or in doubles with Fuji.
I also believe that Echizen will most likely face Oohmagari. Ryoga can't just be introduced, with Ryoma not remembering him, only to be fodderized instantly, so Ryoga has to stay, which is why Yukimura is a good opponent for Ryoga.
For the PoT promo purposes, besides Echizen and Tooyama, they always have nowadays : Atobe, Tezuka, Shiraishi, Sanada, Yukimura and Kirihara. Sometimes Kite. even more than Fuji. Fuji doesnt even appear in the ending of New PoT, and its likely that Volume 8 wont have Fuji on the cover but Kirihara instead. What Im saying is it isnt all that likely we will see Fuji in action that soon, and this is from a Fuji fan.
Konomi has introduced 20 HSers and fodderized them instantly. He also foddered 20+ MSers too.
Understand that NOBODY else is on Yuki's level besides Sanada, and Tezuka & Echizen, Tokugawa who are above him.
This is of the knowledge we know. We dont know how strong Tanegashima or Ryoga really are, we just know they are amongst the very best.
Yukimura bashing is quite baseless. I doubt he will defeat guys like Tanegashima, Ryoga but losing 6-0?
Also, how do you explain Konomi putting Niou as the new No.10 above Yukimura? If that sits nicely with you then you dont know the series well. Yukimura is without a doubt better than both Atobe and Niou.
Sanada losing to Tanegashima? No. Why?, he lost to Yukimura badly, he went to train to the mountains, and if he needs a win he needs it now against Tanegashima. I recognize that Tanegashima is a godlike player, however, Sanada's true power is unknown, and I don't care about Shuuji to much, he will become fodder, Konomi usually does that.
Also, you see Sanada losing, that's your opinion, my opinion is that he'll win. We'll have to wait to see how their match goes.

Although yeah, we know that he is hella strong.
It could be possible that Konomi is preparing players from other countries like youve been saying to be the godly kind of players.
I simply feel its inaccurate to say Yuki would get stomped by anyone in this camp.
If we're talking about already filling their roles and being left behind, Im surprised Fuji and Kirihara havent been mentioned.
Tokugawa is significantly different to Tezuka also. Tezuka never had a main enemy. He just wanted to win.
Tokugawa is all ''I MUST DEFEAT BYOUDOUIN''.
And I never said Kazuya is a Tezuka-expy. Honestly, I don't know what your last point is saying at all.
Honestly, I don't understand any of you guys' predictions.
