Example: Despite his training, Po is hardly a match for Tai Lung.

  • Isn't the opposite of not a match simply a match? – KillingTime Apr 2 at 23:28
  • Because of his training, Po is a match (or good match) for Tai Lung. – Michael Harvey Apr 3 at 7:08

    Possibly "more than a match". An example would be "Because of his training Po is now more than a match for Tai Ling". Alternatively "In spite of Po's training Tai Ling is still more than a match for him". – BoldBen Apr 3 at 11:59

Since fully is the opposite of hardly, I guess the opposite of "hardly a match" is: fully match. This is what I think, I'm not holistically sure.
