Almost quit tennis at one point I didn't like the idea of him playing college tennis, but glad he did. It was good for him to get away from the spotlight.


In case anyone is wondering, his grandfather is Mike DePalmer Sr (an ITA Hall of Fame Coach and founder of the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy). Rhyne is also the nephew of a former ATP Top 50 pro who coached Boris Becker.
Thanks for the info . I had no idea that Mike De Palmer is his grand father

Looking at your signature, not sure if you know this but Austin Krajicek is a distant relative of Richard Krajicek.

Re: Week 6 : Dallas (Entry List)

1st set Williams 7-5! He came back from 3-5, to won the set. But to be honest, seems Robby has some kind of pain in his back, since 5-5. And now he is having a MTO.

I leave the room for 5 minutes and come back to see Ginepri dropped the first set? Hope it was fabulous play from Williams.

Not fabulous. He kept his level. Just that Robby drop his level, considering hen had a great start of match.

Re: Week 6 : Dallas (Entry List)

Massive hold for Ginepri being 0-30 down. He is still with back issues it seems. Maybe its more mental, I dont know. We will see further in the match.

Edit: Doesnt look good for Robby. He is not even trying in Rhyne service games.

Re: Week 6 : Dallas (Entry List)

Break was coming, and here it is. *4-2 Rhyne. I cant see how Robby will escape from losing, unless Williams choke pretty badly.

Yes. But it's underwhelming for me since there were plenty of players in the draw that I like. And it's underwhelming since Ginepri hasn't done anything of note for a while (and I'm not counting his Futures win) and I'm skeptical about whether he can build on this result. Plus I've always disliked Ginepri

I'm glad Rhyne took the title
