Pathetic US Open

How more pathetic can US Open get? A journeyman who just happens to play decently this summer, gets into the Semis. I can't believe how easy Ginepri's draw got, 2 injured players, a Muller who played crappy, & a sort of easy first round. He just hanged in there, his game looks dull to me.

Only way it can get worse is if we get a Nalbandian vs Nieminen & Blake vs Ginepri semis.

Just plain pathetic.

Nice to have Blake, Ginepri, Nieminen to have gone in this tournament as far as they did. :)

Boooo Hisssssss, Curse on Dux.

Robby worked his ASS off earlier this summer to get in shape and get serious about his game and his chosen profession. This is the player I always knew he could be and I fully believe that this is not a one off tournament for him, he will continue to play this well throughout the year, and next. Go Robby!

I really don't see an spectacular game from Ginepri, or even a "good game", he just had a good draw, with injured opponents, hope he enjoys his US Open semi, cause unless he improves alot, or gets another cake draw, he's not getting into another slam semi.

Something good to say about Ginepri is he's in very good shape, but other than that, not much else can be said.

I love this US Open. Upsets are what makes things interesting. Otherwise, why have a 128 person field. Would everyone be happier if the Slams just consisted of the top 16 players? That way everything would be very ordinary, very boring and very predictable. You'd only have to play 4 rounds and be guaranteed a top player would always win. Oh how fun that would be.

This US open has been one the best for some time, even though my top two favourites were out in round 1, I have enjoyed watching players who I don't watch or appreciate as often. There has also been quite a few exciting five setters and a lot of nice stories, like the Blake fairytale and Ginepri's dream run.

It would be a shame to see it return to normal and be won by Federer (whom I like), in my opinion.

I'm sorry but it's true. Other than this good summer, he hasn't done much on his career, & for all the years he's been on tour, his game hasn't improved much. So to me he's a journeyman.

This US Open has been the best Slam of 2005 in terms of dramatic and high-quality matches on the men's side, so I don't know how anyone could call it pathetic. I'm not even a fan of Ginepri, I wasn't before the tournament, but I know now just how good he is and I did think once Muller upset Roddick that there was a chance for him to reach the second week, though I never thought he would get this far. His rather ugly technique on his shots probably puts people off, including me, but it's very effective and when you compare him to Roddick, Blake, Dent et al he is a far better tactician and thinker on the court.

You make it sound like he's had so many years on the tour. He turned pro in 2001... so he's been around for 4 years... He's only 22 (almost 23)... he turned pro relatively late compared to most, considering Nadal turned pro the same year Ginepri did, but is four years younger. Everyone takes time to get their game up to speed, maybe he's just starting to come into his own.

In case you haven't been watching, it's his solid commitment to play varied and solid points and not committing stupid errors; playing the right shots at the right time. Nothing's spectacular? He has incredible court coverage and speed, and both of his ground shots are steady and strong.

As for you comment on the U.S. Open in general, this has been a high quality, entertaining and fun U.S. Open in my opinion. There have been so many incredible matches this year, that your statement is uninformed and just plain annoying to those of us enjoying the tennis we get to watch.

I don't mind upsets, or variety, but overall these journeymans making the semis of a slam, doesn't set up for good matches, especially when their games are so dull. For example, Ferreira making the semis of the 2003 Australian Open was very boring IMO, cause his game was also boring.

Everyone makes stupid errors. It's cutting down on them and playing a solid overral match that Ginepri has done. I seem to remember Federer even hitting three or four double faults in one game against Hanescu at RG this year. For the most part, Ginepri plays the game with intense strategy now, and seems to play the game with a lot of head whereas he used to just smack the ball as hard as he can and try and hit tons of winners.

Sorry, but to call one of the most complete and entertaining players of the last decade boring is just plain wrong. Ferreira could hit winners from everywhere, and just because he lost a couple of steps when he got older didn't make his results any less deserved. He was a great serve and volleyer who could hit any shot; Agassi was just a great returner capable of neutralizing his game.

If it had been Gasquet instead of Ginepri in the semis, I would have loved this US Open (and if it had been Gasquet-Nadal and Federer-Safin in the semis, I'd have worshipped the tennis gods). :lol: But despite that, I still like it a lot - a nice chance to see some players who haven't performed very well in Slams, a lot of drama and tension, and good quality, too. I thought Coria was going to somehow win the match after saving five match points, but... those two double faults sealed it for Ginepri. :eek:

a better explaination than "it would be even more horrible to have X vs Y"
I understand what you mean but you cant blame Ginepri for makin it this far, only his opponents right! guess we can still expect some good ralleys in Ginepri-Blake match. rarely do you get two really contrasting styles and both of them executed perfectly in the same time. I think its quite relative cause different ppl prefer one style to another, its just a matter of sitting back and trying to enjoy the good stuff in a match I guess.

I agree with you Croat, the real test for both of them will be to sustain their success, and it will be a huge challenge for them to do it overseas. Will be an interesting fall season, that is for sure. They will both get directly entry into Paris Masters.

In my earlier post, I wasn't comparing Robby to Federer at all, I was just saying that its a little bit early in Robby's career to say that he hasn't done anything with his game yet. This is only his 3rd year playing full time on the tour.

Ginepri and Blake are having their good run now and deserve it as well, he won't be keeping it up and this is the time of the year where they should be shining and have done that so far. Yes, Ginepri, Blake and Nieminen have deserved their wins in this tournament.

This hasn't been a pathetic US Open at all, the only about it that has been pathetic is 5th set tiebreakers, but that's a general fault.

i now agree completely about the tie-break after shitting my money away in the srichaphan-sanguinetti, davenport-dementieva and agassi-blake matches. the only one there i could accept was andre winning.

but the open has been a good one.

It doesn' t have a place in the Slams. Two of our commentators former Slam champs had said it was Russian Roulette, in a way it is and I would like to have seen someone worn down into the ground to win these matches.

Well I still haven't changed my view about Ginepri, but he deserves his place as a semi finalist.

I'm sorry but it's true. Other than this good summer, he hasn't done much on his career, & for all the years he's been on tour, his game hasn't improved much. So to me he's a journeyman.


Simply Dumbass.

I'd like to see a final, that reaches the 5th set tb, where the players stop playing in protest, and declare that they will only continue playing if the tb rule is abolished.

But the majority of the current crop of players aren't old school enough to care about things besides winning.

Wilander and Edberg showed up late for their semi final, that was good, though they are mostly spineless gits in that regard.

Ginepri failing to make stupid errors?, I'm sorry, but I saw many balls not even landed near the court, that Ginepri hit, plus some double faults at bad times. Same thing happened on the Gasquet match, making some silly unforced errors. The thing's that even more silly is that their opponents were injured, or just made more silly unforced errors.


Too stupid for word.

Reply to its like that. You watch sport by plugging in your television. Sitting in front of it. Cancelling all appointments and bringing whatever intelligence God has given you to the exercise.

Did you see Robby play a few years ago? He has totally rebuild his game. In the past, he would go for the winner on every shot. He couldn´t even play a proper slice one year ago. Now he´s playing with patience and he´s using his head on the court. He has improved his shots, although I have to admit that he still has to work on his net game.
