Re: Ginepri def. Ferrero

America's Robby Ginepri created the biggest upset of the men's tournament so far by dumping the number six seed Juan Carlos Ferrero out in the third round, 6-3, 6-4, 6-1.

The Spaniard appeared drained by his titanic effort in coming back to defeat Stefan Koubek yesterday and could offer no resistance to the 27th seed, who wrapped up the match in 81 mintues. Ginepri will play last year's semi-finalist Sebastien Grosjean in the last 16.

The 21-year-old made today's task look ridiculously simple. He was only briefly troubled in the first set, when Ferrero broke him in the third game. But Ginepri bounced right back with two breaks of his own to take the set 6-3.

It seemed only moments later that he notched up another break and was steaming off with the second set, with Ferrero's ratio of winners to errors hopelessly off key. Ginepri wrapped it up with an ace and the 2003 French Open champion was two sets down inside an hour. It was all a long way from the baseline slugathon against Koubek.

Along with Mardy Fish, Ginepri is one of that batch of young Americans who seem to have been tagged as the next big thing for several seasons, without ever quite arriving. Andy Roddick has been their standard bearer until now.

But on today's form, Ginepri will be looking to stay in The Championships for some time yet. The third set was perilously close to a whitewash. Grosjean had better not be feeling tired when he faces Ginepri on Monday.

Re: Ginepri def. Ferrero

Was it realy an upset? I saw the last few games and I saw that JCF wasn't capable of anything. JC sucks on grass and Ginepri is very good.
