Ginepri came back in the TB from 4-1 down and had a good chance of going up. After that 1 way traffic

another QF in a slam for Gonzo :yeah:

it took 10 minutes after the end of the match for posting the reulst.

Ginepry, good run here and unexpected rise of his rankings.(it is a clay season after all)

When on fire, Gonzo is very, very dangerous.

Never in doubt once Gonzalez took the first set. Ginepri didn't believe he could win.

His returns were awesome! Ginepri's second serves were eaten by Gonzo.
I think Federer will get a run for his money if Gonzalez can keep up this level of play.

Props to Ginepri atleast he's making something out of clay unlike the other Americans. Gonzo hitting some nice form now good result is a QF.

Some cracking winners from Gonzo, especially with the FH of course. Very well played.

Great tourney for Robby, I hope he really turns it up during the hard court season. In other news, Fernando is gay...and his mother wears army boots...

Ginepri's unexpected run ended, but he was a good and welcomed surprise in the tournament for me.

He's out for now, so Jose Higueras is Federer's coach again :lol:

If Gonzo keeps up this level, and Fed doesn't start doing any better than he is right now (which is, pardon me the word, TOILET) - yes indeed.

I don't trust this. I have thought so many times this would happen, but so far Gonzalez just never could keep up consistently hitting ripper forehands and backhands to trouble Federer for a longer time. But okay, let's see first.

Yes, the only player at the main level who has played and not lost on clay this year yet.

Wow Gonzalez, some reminiscence of AO 2007. Some forehands were :eek:

The walk-over he gave should count as a loss, so he is not unbeaten.

why should it?

He's real good, this Gonzalez.

I reckon he will beat Fed in the next round.

now lets see how he fares against Fed. looking for a decent contest there. lets hope its a close match anyway.

he did manage a win over Fed in Shanghai last year. maybe he can put together another good match.

TankingTheSet

why should it?

It depends on the definition of course, and is subject to debate, but to me giving a w.o is a defeat and also breaks winning streaks.

If a player doesn't give a w.o. he would have lost 2-6 ret. or something.

A retirement officially counts as a defeat, while a walkover doesn't. So according to the ATP rules, Gonzalez is officially unbeaten on clay.

Great straight sets win for Gonzalez and a great run by Ginepri who has really impressed me with his tourney. His attitude has been great - as will Fernando's need to be against Roger. Best of luck Feña :yeah:

Well Fena played great for three sets. Ginepri played as well as he could in the first but once he did that and still lost I think he was a little damaged by it and wasn't able to keep up the level. Gonzalez has had a great tournament and whilst he does mix his great stuff with a lot of shit this is still a fifth GS QF which is pretty damn good. Last two times he got this far he ended up losing to Federer, looks like it may well happen again.

nice tactical timeout by gonzalez in the first set after only 3 games played, and an early break to his advantage :retard:

but his forehand was working incredibly at important points and that was the deciding factor. ginepri was good until he got rebroken in the 2nd set , then everything went down the drain.

gonzalez to lose in straight sets vs federer

the game ginepri got broken in the 2nd set when gonzo went up 5-3 was stuff of legends... i had not seen 2 easy volleys in a row missed in such a bad way... i wasnt that impressed with whati saw today from gonzo... gave up his serve 2 ti a row after breaking...

Ginepri's unexpected run ended, but he was a good and welcomed surprise in the tournament for me.

He's out for now, so Jose Higueras is Federer's coach again :lol:

Diego Moyano (former Capdeville coach) is Ginepri's coach, not Higueras ;)

anyone thought Ginepri had a chance on clay against Gonzalez playing his best tennis? :lol: Ginepri made a good tournament but two of his three wins were against D. Young and Serra, just his win against Andreev was good but not extrardinary either.

Where did you hear that Higueras is not Robby's coach?
He is Robby's coach... and Diego is like an assistant coach.

Q. Couple months ago the whole tennis world was hanging on whether Roger was going to hire a coach, who he was going to hire. It might have been distracting for other players to have the coach that was helping them and resuscitating their career suddenly commit to working with the world No. 1 player. How did you keep from being distracted, irritated, annoyed, or otherwise thrown off by that? And can you also talk a bit about Diego and what he's brought to the table for you?

ROBBY GINEPRI: I was in José's office at Smoke Tree Ranch in Palm Springs when he let me know. I was actually excited that he could actually get an opportunity like that to work with Roger.

You know, he pointed out that if I wasn't okay with it then there's no way he was going to take this job. He told me that I was going to be his No. 1 priority, and if I had any problems through the whole time that he was going to stop and not do it.

When I got to Houston, a few more players kind of came up to me and people started talking a little bit more saying that José dumped me and all this, but he didn't. He's still 100% behind me. Then I started working with Diego, and we had a good week and a half out in Palm Springs training with him, training on the clay getting ready to come over here, to Austria, and then obviously Paris.

José's always worked with at least two players, and he's handled it since he's been a coach. I think he's done a great job with Roger and myself. I have yet to come out on practice court with both of them, but in the future, it could happen.

Q. Was Diego brought in because José was working more with Roger, or why was he brought in actually?

ROBBY GINEPRI: No, Diego was mentioned long before Roger had even called José. I know he was working with like Berlocq and Capdeville as well, so I think their time stopped and got the opportunity to work with him and took it.
