Re: All the Robby Articles you can stand (by request of tangy)

And I'm still waiting for ^%$# RO to get back up so that I can update the news and photos. What a lousy time to start upgrading the site. And we probably lost a lot of stuff that I did the other day and I won't be able to get it back (esp the pictures)

Ginepri wants spot on U.S. Davis Cup team
Sept 3, 2005

NEW YORK -- There's more to Robby Ginepri's stay in New York than his run at the U.S. Open.

Ginepri, who beat Gilles Muller 6-1, 6-1, 6-4 Thursday, has talked to U.S. Davis Cup captain Patrick McEnroe about being part of the team for the upcoming match against Belgium. The match is key for the United States staying in the elite 16-nation World Group next year.

Ginepri said McEnroe told him he's one of two candidates for the Sept. 23-25 matches, which will be played on an indoor clay court in Leuven, Belgium.

"I've had brief conversations with Patrick but he hasn't told me anything outside of it's between James [Blake] and I," Ginepri told The Associated Press. "I know that this week and next week will be a factor in his decision. Anytime I can get a chance to play Davis Cup, I definitely want to do it."

Blake beat Russia's Igor Andreev of Russia 6-2, 6-2, 6-4 on Thursday night, setting up a third-round match with No. 2 Rafael Nadal.

While Ginepri described Blake as an all-court player capable of playing on clay, he said he's often been told his game is tailor-made for the surface.

"I've heard that my game suits the clay better than the hard courts, even though I don't have too many great results on the clay," Ginepri said. "I totally play like a clay-courter. I'm a baseliner, I don't come in too much and I hit a heavy ball."

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!

Ginepri and Blake make Davis Cup team

NEW YORK (AP) -- James Blake and Robby Ginepri will join Andy Roddick on the U.S. Davis Cup team for its match in Belgium later this month.

Davis Cup captain Patrick McEnroe also selected doubles specialists Bob and Mike Bryan for the Sept. 23-25 match in Leuven, Belgium.

"We expect a tough match in Belgium on clay,'' McEnroe said Wednesday. "Andy has been the stalwart of the team and the Bryans have been clutch in doubles for us lately. James and Robby have stepped up this summer and are playing exceptional tennis.''

Ginepri is unbeaten in two Davis Cup singles matches. Blake is 8-3 in Davis Cup play, including a 5-2 record in singles and 3-1 in doubles. The two have made impressive runs at the Open, with the unseeded Ginepri advancing to the semifinals by beating Guillermo Coria in five sets Wednesday.

Blake played Andre Agassi in another quarterfinal Wednesday night.

"Coming into the Open, I was leaning toward Robby and James,'' McEnroe said. "And what's happened here has obviously just reconfirmed that.''

Agassi had said earlier he wouldn't play. The 35-year-old lost in the first round of the French Open after a herniated disc in his back shot pain down his right leg, and he didn't play again until the end of July.

Healthy again, he is wary of chancing it on another clay surface.

"He doesn't want to take that risk at this point, which I certainly understand,'' McEnroe said. "The other guys have stepped up. I feel as good as I felt going in with the second guy as I've felt in a while.''

The match is key for the United States. The winner remains in the World Group, the only 16 nations actually competing for the Cup, while the loser drops down to zonal play next year. The United States has beaten Belgium in all three of their previous meetings.

Re: All the Robby Articles you can stand (by request of tangy)

Ginepri guarantees American finalist in U.S. Open

NEW YORK (AP) -- Robby Ginepri, an unsung, unseeded American toiling hard through the U.S. Open, gutted his way out of trouble and got the gift of Guillermo Coria's 13th and 14th double-faults on the last two points to reach a Grand Slam semifinal for the first time.

Ginepri, a 22-year-old who had never gone beyond the third round of the Open, won his third straight five-setter against a seeded player, 4-6, 6-1, 7-5, 3-6, 7-5, Wednesday and guaranteed that an American will play in the final.

Ginepri's opponent in the semis Saturday will be the winner of the Andre Agassi-James Blake night match.

"The last three matches took so much out of me, I'm just dead right now,'' Ginepri told the crowd as his family, suffering and celebrating on alternate points, watched from the players' box. His sister, Jenni, took photos as he spoke. "I don't know how I got through that match".

"I don't know what's going on right now. I'm a little foggy, a little dizzy. It's crazy. Crazy!''

Down a break in the fifth set, Ginepri kept his poise to beat the No. 8 Coria, the Argentine who was a French Open finalist last year, in a match that took just over three hours and ended with a dramatic series of six match points.

Ginepri's has had only a few claims to fame so far -- his second career title at Indianapolis in July, where he beat Andy Roddick in the quarters and Taylor Dent in the final; a semifinal finish in Cincinnati last month, where he gave No. 1 Roger Federer a tough, three-set match.

Oh, and then there was the time Ginepri dated actress Minnie Driver a couple years ago.

"I hope I'm more notable for my tennis than being with her,'' he said. "Just a little fling, and that's over with. Now I think I'm making my name with tennis.''

Ginepri and Coria each wore their white caps backward and engaged in long rallies during a match filled with momentum swings.

Coria was involved in a tempest with Chilean Nicolas Massu in his previous match, but against Ginepri there was nothing but respect. On one point in the fifth set, the players gave each other a high-five at the net when they combined for a particularly thrilling point -- a beautifully angled drop shot by Coria, a full-court running scoop by Ginepri feathered barely over the net, and a putaway backhand half-volley winner by Coria.

After serving his ninth ace at 124 mph to hold for a 6-5 lead in the fifth set, Ginepri jumped out to his fourth match point at 30-40 on Coria's serve when the wearying Argentine slapped a forehand just wide. Nervous, Ginepri pulled the front of his yellow shirt up to chomp on it with his teeth, then tried to close out the match. Instead, he saw Coria save the point with a forehand that Ginepri stretched to reach but netted.

Three points later, Coria mishit a backhand wide to give Ginepri a fifth match point. Coria saved that with a surprising serve and volley. That was all Coria had left. He double-faulted to set up the sixth match point and double-faulted again to lose.

Coria said he had been having problems with the nerve in his right hand and wasn't able to grip the racket hard.

"I was losing feeling on the hand,'' Coria said in Spanish while motioning with his right pinkie. "It has been happening for four days.

"I had a lot of treatment ... but during the match, the more I serve, the more it gets tight -- the forearm, the shoulder. I knew it could happen. That's just the way it is.''

Coria, who missed last year's Open because of a shoulder injury that needed surgery, said he was worn out by his five-set victory over Massu two days earlier -- at 4 hours, 32 minutes the longest match of the tournament.

"It was a tough break that the match with Massu was so long,'' Coria said. "My whole body was hurting. It was hard to keep up the same speed I had. But I gave it all -- ran, tried hard and gave it all I could. He won because he deserved it. He's been waiting for a moment like this for a long time.''

Re: All the Robby Articles you can stand (by request of tangy)

Even in loss, Ginepri shows he’s major threat
U.S. player stunned three seeded opponents in march to Open semis

MSNBC
Sept. 10, 2005

NEW YORK - Robby Ginepri always had the talent. Now he’s finally getting the most out of it.

Though Ginepri lost to Andre Agassi in a five-setter Saturday, his run to the U.S. Open semifinals capped a breakthrough summer. After winning his second career title last month in Indianapolis, Ginepri knocked off three seeded players — No. 29 Tommy Haas, No. 13 Richard Gasquet and No. 8 Guillermo Coria — to reach the semifinals.

Agassi won 6-4, 5-7, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3.

“He’s come a long way,” said Agassi, who had never dropped a set to Ginepri in their previous three matches. “If anything, I used to say that he was irresponsible with his talent. ... Now, you really see his patience, his thought process out there. He’s taking calculated risks, and he knows when to lay off the ball, when to work it, when to step up and take a chance.

“He’s playing a lot smarter,” Agassi added, “which doesn’t give you those free points that make the difference.”

Much has been expected of Ginepri since 2000, when he was runner-up for the junior boys title at the Open to Andy Roddick. But whether it was being away from home and his friends or all the time he spent on the road, he was never able to capitalize on that potential.

He climbed to No. 25 in the rankings on Feb. 2, 2004, but had plummeted back down to 103 on July 4.

“I wasn’t reaching my goals and my potential in the game of tennis,” said the 22-year-old, who was born in Marietta, Ga., and now lives in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. “I’m starting to realize to be the best, you have to work your butt off every single day, and days can’t go by where you’re upset about something. You can’t let that affect the way you play.”

But things began turning around after a first-round loss at Wimbledon. The next month in Indianapolis, he beat Roddick in the quarters on his way to winning the title. He made it to the quarters in Los Angeles and Cincinnati, where he beat Marat Safin to set up a meeting with No. 1 Roger Federer.

Though Federer won the semifinal match 4-6, 7-5, 6-4, Ginepri made him work for it.

He was even more impressive at the Open, where he became the first man in the Open era to play four straight five-setters.

“He had a wonderful tournament,” said Francisco Montana, Ginepri’s coach. “I think playing Andre was an invaluable experience for Robby and he matured again, more so in this match than in the last couple of weeks.

He was down a set to Agassi twice, rebounding each time to even the match. Agassi was finally too much in the fifth set, breaking Ginepri and then holding serve to go up 5-2. Ginepri held his own before Agassi served out the match at love with a 120-mph ace.

“I can hang with any player,” Ginepri said when asked what he learned at the Open. “I shouldn’t be intimidated or afraid to walk on the court with anybody. My confidence has been pretty high, and my work ethic has definitely been up there. With that said, it definitely enlightens the future for me.”

His father also thought his performances this tournament bode well for his future.

“There was a little letdown because Robby probably had his chances there, but Andre is Andre and this is Robby’s first semifinal,” Rene Ginepri said. “I think it’s a great learning experience for him and I think he will nurture from it. Kudos to Robby for getting here and it was a wonderful challenge.”

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!

There just doesn't seem to be a lot of information around about Robby. All I used to know of him at all was that he was dating Minny. I hate it when all the press is on who someone is dating
