With all the excitement Ginepri def Gabashvili 6-2 6-3 6-1

Great week Robby!

Where did Gabashvili leave his Round 1 form?

So lets get this straight, Gonzo lost to a guy who only managed 6 games vs GINEPRI??

Of course you always have to consider the opposition, but the fact Ginepri has lost only 10 games in two matches is rather impressive.

Re: With all the excitement Ginepri def Gabashvili 6-2 6-3 6-1

I've always thought Ginepri was nowhere near as good a player as commentators try to make out, but equally nowhere near as bad as MTF posters seem to believe either. He has a good chance of proving too consistent for Wawrinka in the next round as well, though I'd like Stan the Man to prevail.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Agree on all counts. Ginepri played excellent tennis back in the US Open 2005, but he failed to play at this level after that.

Re: With all the excitement Ginepri def Gabashvili 6-2 6-3 6-1

It was fitness and smart baseline strategy that won him all those epic five setters against Haas, Gasquet and Coria, he is a more solid baseliner than most of the young Americans of his generation with good returns and defensive play. On the other hand, I don't think of him as having a stand-out weapon that would earn him a Top 10 spot.

Shows how bad Gonzo is at the moment.

Ginepri has lucked out with his draw. Wawrinka better send his ass home.

It was Coria double faulting late in the match that got him to the semis.

Re: With all the excitement Ginepri def Gabashvili 6-2 6-3 6-1

Gonzo and Gabashvili was a much different match and different day with different situation
people can not comparing this to days before
but I agree that Gabashvili should done better in this match

Albert Costa forever +++ Tommy Haas +++ Ivo Karlovic +++ Peter Luczak


RAFA owns Fedclown ~~~ H2H record 14-7 -- ~~~ 3 different GS finals included
Byebye Fedjerk, your dominance period is over! Nadal will win like 10 more Slams!



Zero tolerance against dopers!
