Wink RG stands for Roland Garros AND Robby Ginepri!

Okay, I said we wouldn't start a Roland Garros thread unless Robby actually won a clay court match, and he did, twice! So might as well go for it, even if it's dead in a few days...

The "machine" selected Robby to play none other than the clay court player that beat him this year in Houston, 6-4, 6-4 ... Will revenge be Robby's or will Montanes show everyone who's boss? We shall see...

I would like Robby to at least take a set at RG this year, as a way of showing repentence for his sins last year at RG... May or may not happen, we should just expect the worst (which we got last year) but hope for the best!! C'mon Robby, try your best!!

Robby will play on Court 7 probably around 7PM tomorrow, possibly earlier, possibly later... Good luck to him!!

Good luck Robby! Please win at least one match. That's all I'm asking for.

Robby survives another day because play suspended. Will there be a miracle tomorrow?

Re: RG stands for Roland Garros AND Robby Ginepri!

unfortunately, I don't think there'll be a miracle tomorrow... At least Robby grabbed a set this year, and I'm not sure what happened because he was up 5-2 in the second set, and then I left my house to go eat with friends... when I was at the restaurant, I said, "I would be really sad if he lost that second set after having such a lead, but that kind of thing has happened before"... then when I got back home, I check, and he almost did lose the set!! I thought maybe his winning the second set would give him confidence to maybe take another set, but boy was that not the case... No idea what happened (because I wasn't watching the SB live), but he only won a single game in the last 10 games of the match! Not a good sign...

Re: RG stands for Roland Garros AND Robby Ginepri!

For what it's worth...not long before they suspended play, ESPN2 flashed onto Robby's match and he was being attended to by a trainer. It looked like a right leg/foot issue.

uh oh... I hope whatever it was, gets better! I forgot to ask this, but why was play suspended in the first place? Did it start raining or what?

Re: RG stands for Roland Garros AND Robby Ginepri!

they stop play in Paris around 9pm or so when it gets dark. There was some rain today too, so that may have compouded problems.

Re: RG stands for Roland Garros AND Robby Ginepri!

Do the players have some say in this? I thought it was weird that they stopped play during Robby's match....well before Kevin Kim finished his match.

"Work like you don't need the money, Sing like nobody's listening, Dance like nobody's watching, Love like you've never been hurt." - Mark Twain

Through this world I've stumbled, So many times betrayed
Trying to find an honest word to find, The truth enslaved
Oh you speak to me in riddles, And you speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath, Your words keep me alive
And I would be the one, To hold you down
Kiss you so hard, I'll take your breath away
And after, I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

Re: RG stands for Roland Garros AND Robby Ginepri!

It's up to the ump, who sometimes will ask the players - if both players are willing to play, the ump is more likely to agree to let it keep going, etc. I think the ump has the final say though.

Re: RG stands for Roland Garros AND Robby Ginepri!

ESPN2 showed the resumption of Robby's match this morning between 6:30 am and 7 am EDT. PMac said Robby is having a horrible year mostly due to a lack of confidence. Said Robby works hard but just doesn't have the confidence. They also said he had more energy and bounce in his step this morning compared to yesterday. Said Robby does not have the look of a guy who wants to stay out there and grind it out for 5 sets.

Robby did mount somewhat of a challenge in the 4th set, coming back to make it 5-4 (and saving a match point), but Montenes eventually served it out for 6-4 win.

Hope Robby will work hard to prepare now for the grasscourt "season" and Wimbledon.
How does he play on grass? I didn't start following him until US Open last year.

Re: RG stands for Roland Garros AND Robby Ginepri!

Robby's real good on grass, made the 4th round at Wimby a couple years ago and his first title was in Newport on grass a few years back

Re: RG stands for Roland Garros AND Robby Ginepri!

Thanks Deb!

Saw that he lost 1st round last year, so he has nothing to defend. When is his year going to turn around, I wonder.

He has so many point to defend this summer and that's going to be too much pressure for him.

Re: RG stands for Roland Garros AND Robby Ginepri!

He probably only needs one good result to turn it around. It's so tough when these guys are low on confidence, hard to know what it would take to turn it around.
