Robby Ginepri had some things to say about his game in the press conference after beating Ken Carlsen in Bangkok. Says his forehand is as big as anyone. Anyone agree?

He could have said "my forehands as big as everyones...when its in the court"
And his backhand up the line?? lethal?? :rolleyes: His footwork is the only outstanding part of his game

I just read the actual article. What a joke, what kind of a player talks themself up like that? The funniest thing is that hes not even close..

Well, that's not true, but at least it looks like he's confident about his game.

And a confident Ginepri can do a lot of damage on a fast court!

i dont see y u guys are laughing. in the context of that interview, he was just stating his attributes. and if youve seen his fh and his footspeed, theyre pretty good. not THE best like federer's but up there w/ the rest.

I've never understood that phrase "as __ as anyone". What kind of comparison is that? You can't measure the quality of something based on "anyone" as a yardstick, can you? Regarding Ginepri, one can say it's an effective shot like many players' forehands, but certainly not a killer one.

His forehand is above average, but it is nowhere near as good as most of the top players' forehands.

That said, he's been lacking confidence, so if this helps him in his psyche, well good for him :)

Robby caught complimenting himself OUT LOUD, that's a major transgression according to MTF Laws (and if it isn't an MTF law, it should be) :lol:

robby's statement seemed more defensive to me. almost like he didnt want to say it because he only half-believed it but did anyway. unlike roger's "i played fantastic tennis." so i see it as him trying to be positive in the face of all the negativity and judging from the comments on the first page, im surprised he didnt go farther :)

I believe it maybe as big as anyone elses....

Robby uses a 98inch head size...that's about as big as the come on the men's tour.

Federer's forehand is acutally pretty small...85sqr inches. ;)

Truth. Clearly a comment of the size of his forearms.

You can't measure the quality of something based on "anyone" as a yardstick, can you?It doesn't make sense, and I believe it's an error for "as __ as anyone's", which is what Ginepri actually said. (He said "anybody's", but same thing.)

Only if that "anyone" is Sanguinetti.

Fed's is 90, and Ive seen some go up to 105 and beyond :scratch:

85.

If I remember exactly, Agassi used an oversized Radical from Head. 107.

I can't hate on the guy for trying to pump himself up after having such a craptastic year so far.
