Robby Ginepri - My forehand is as big as anyone

Robby Ginepri had some things to say about his game in the press conference after beating Ken Carlsen in Bangkok. Says his forehand is as big as anyone. Anyone agree?

As long as he thinks so.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Robby Ginepri - My forehand is as big as anyone

He could have said "my forehands as big as everyones...when its in the court"
And his backhand up the line?? lethal?? His footwork is the only outstanding part of his game

Re: Robby Ginepri - My forehand is as big as anyone

Well, that's not true, but at least it looks like he's confident about his game.

And a confident Ginepri can do a lot of damage on a fast court!

Re: Robby Ginepri - My forehand is as big as anyone

i dont see y u guys are laughing. in the context of that interview, he was just stating his attributes. and if youve seen his fh and his footspeed, theyre pretty good. not THE best like federer's but up there w/ the rest.

Re: Robby Ginepri - My forehand is as big as anyone

I've never understood that phrase "as __ as anyone". What kind of comparison is that? You can't measure the quality of something based on "anyone" as a yardstick, can you? Regarding Ginepri, one can say it's an effective shot like many players' forehands, but certainly not a killer one.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

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.

his footspeed (on non-clay surfaces), yes. His forehand is above average, but it is nowhere near as good as most of the top players' forehands.

That said, he's been lacking confidence, so if this helps him in his psyche, well good for him

Re: Robby Ginepri - My forehand is as big as anyone

Robby caught complimenting himself OUT LOUD, that's a major transgression according to MTF Laws (and if it isn't an MTF law, it should be)

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
