You were saving this. :spit:
Um. So yeah. Ginepri should retire. Harrison played good the first set, but awful the next two. Ginepri had millions of bp but Harrison was clutch. And that tie break was a disaster from Ginepri. Harrison played horrible tennis in return games but was clutch on serve and much more aggressive minded- why he can't play that way in return games, looking to move forward, I just don't understand.

the only thing that was good the whole match was his serve:worship:

Poor Robby, totally tanked after missing 2 MPs. He played well in the 2nd set, if he can keep that up I'm sure this will be a decent year for him.

Ryan's groundstrokes were still weak, those serves saved his ass, big time...

Great win for Ryan and tough loss for Robby with the brainfart in the tiebreak.

I'm happy with the result but Ginepri played better than Ryan today.
Ryan needs to step it up.

another ugly win for harrison. watching him get bossed around by washed-up ginepri during most of the rallies is disappointing. he continues to stand 8 ft behind the baseline (on a fast hc no less) shagging balls all day and getting no consistency of depth on his 2h bh. the positives are that he's using the slice more effectively and his serve has improved. he's a strong, uberfit kid who needs to step in, dictate and play more aggressively.

as a huge fan i am sad to say it, but please Robby, as a favor for those of us who have followed your career and its missed potential, please do us a favor and retire. it's painful watching one of your favorite players struggle with injuries for years and never quit. i don't remember the last season Genepri was not out for a good portion. RObby you always will be remembered but at some point we have to recognize the chance is gone

at the same time it's inspiring him never giving up but clear that Ginepri will never be back to his best form. shouldn't be surprised, and I'm not, but just sad at pondering and remembering the lapses and the 'almosts' for Ginepri over the last decade

Eh, you guys are panicking on Ginepri too soon. The guy historically always heats up during the summer and is a nonfactor the rest of the year. He has to be healthy though, no more swerving off the road to avoid squirrels.

Harrison beats old and out-of-form Ginepri in TB of 3d set :help: So much for the big promise of American tennis :spit:

You can't deny the guy has talent. He won really close today, but he can show his best form tomrorow and this saturday. He won over Milos once, he can do it again.
He's young, every win is important.

Come on Ginepri got an horrible accidental injury last year, he's starting his come-back, you can't be too demanding about him.

Besides, I'm surprised about the comments that Harrison was only good on serve which don't fit the live scores stats : in third set, Harrison won 40% of return points to Ginepri 26%, that's quite an important gap.

If Harrison plays that defensive, he will have a lot of difficulties against Raonic or Anderson.

i look at this as big positive for harrison, sometimes you have to win ugly and for him to be doing this at such a young age is impressive, learning all the time.

harrison has a huge future for me, very smart and good attitude.

You seriously don't compare American tennis and Kazakstani tennis, do you?

If you have ever lived at least one day in Kazakstan, you must know how difficult it was (and still is) for young tennis players to get sufficient training and how much it cost their parents. I've been to US and I saw more courts both indoor and outdoor in a small town of Champaign than in the whole 1.5 Mln city of Almaty!

Yes, we bought some Russian players, so what? That's part of the state program, Kaz TF spends a lot of money on Kaz juniors, they built several tennis centers, they provide promising kids with both courts and coaches, free btw! It just takes some time but we will have real Kazak players. So, stop bringing up this issue in every GM thread whether relevant or not.

Yeah, I see. Does name "Anna Danilina" ring any bell? Another gastarbeiter (http://www.itftennis.com/juniors/players/player.asp?player=100145619), but in junior tennis? Or these Putintseva's speculations? Oh yeah, working with juniors oh so well. For God's sake, these girls were born after Dec 16, 1991, they are total aliens! It just a shame and disgrace and I cannot bear this ignominy.

Dixi.

Expected, Ginepri's experience in deciding 3rd set tie-breaks is laughable for a player to begin his pro career 11 years ago.

The biggest '3rd set deciding tie-break' suckers:


(.263) 5-14 Fernando Verdasco & Victor Hanescu
(.230) 3-10 Janko Tipsarevic
(.222) 2-7 Thomaz Bellucci & Robby Ginepri

First, it's not a place to hold this discussion. And I repeat-- no need to drag in Kazakstan into any GM thread just because you want to show you are so smart (which is not).

Second, I know about Anna Danilina. Can't tell I was very happy about this decision but I can understand reasons for doing this. I also know Sabina Sharipova very well, since she was 12. Her and Alisa Ogorodova. The Uzbek girls of 94 were better than our girls but 95 beat them. So, I am waiting for Kamilla Kerimbaeva to start showing results. As well as others from team Kazakstan. It's not that good with the boys but that's understandable, we never really had good boy juniors. With the girls we had Amina Rakhim.

Again, it's not the point. The point is-- everyone already knows that you are against of the policy of Kaz TF, stop trying so hard to show that over and over again. It's annoying and becoming ridiculous now.

Sadly Robby's career since 2005 has been awful :sad: It is almost hard for me to believe that he was once ranked #15 in the World :rolleyes: And I don't know how talk about other countries tennis players got into this thread because this thread is supposed to be about a match between two American tennis players :confused:

This match reminded me so much of Robby's encounter with young Andy Murray where he had the lad on the rope but couldn't put him away.
