Kuerten to play doubles at US Open with Ginepri

Good luck to Guga although it's seems really random. Hopefully it's the start of some kind of comeback for him and he can leave the game on his own terms.

Tennis: Kuerten makes US Open comeback

SAO PAULO - FORMER world number one and triple French Open champion Gustavo Kuerten, whose career has been blighted by injury in recent years, will play doubles at the US Open, his spokesman said on Sunday.

The Brazilian, who will be 31 on Sept 10, was granted a wildcard by the organisers of the last Grand Slam tournament of the season which starts in New York on Monday.

Kuerten, who will play doubles with America's Robby Ginepri, has undergone two operations on a long-standing hip injury and played just two tour matches in 2006.

His last appearance on the tour was a first round defeat at the Miami Masters in March.

Re: Kuerten to play doubles at US Open with Ginepri

Probably because no one else would and he really wanted to play

How has Kuerten been doing on the Challenger this summer?

Kuerten should retire and stop tarnishing his reputation by teaming up with muppets such as Gineprick.

Re: Kuerten to play doubles at US Open with Ginepri

I hope Guga stays healthy and can enjoy himself on court again. A good guy like that, he has fought harder than many players would to keep playing so he deserves a few more matches before he calls it quits.

Although the circumstances aren't comprable it is the same as with Felix Mantilla in that results don't matter anymore, it's about being able to play the game at a physical level.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: Kuerten to play doubles at US Open with Ginepri

Ginepri cant play doubles to save his life.

Fucking Roddick and him lost in a Challenger.

Roddick can win with Reylonds and those guys, not Ginepri.

He can ask Mark Knowles to be his partner after the US Open.

Guga hasn't played any matches at all this summer. He still has problem with his hips.
