Ginepri a journeyman?

Ginepri getting the short end of the media stick?

It seems somewhat disingenuous for people to be calling Robby Ginepri a journeyman at such a young age. I think it is great that a player can take control and turn his career around before its too late. A late bloomer yes, a journeyman? Perhaps a bit too harsh.

In 2004 he reached the 4th round of the AUS, and the 4th round of Wimby. It was a matter of bad luck to have drawn Agassi in the first round of the US last year.

In 2003 he reached the quarters of 3 TMS events, with losses to Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt, and Rainer Schuettler, who at that time had been at the top of his game.

Robby has had his wakeup call and is showing what he is capable of. I believe the Nike de-sponsoring woke him up, and he realized that it was time to get serious. He has played exceedingly well and I would not be surprised to see him in the Final. If he then flakes out for the next 6 months and then comes alive inconsistently, we'll label him then.

Didn't he eat 2 bagels to Djokovic in RG this year?

Does a respected player lose like that lost to an 18 year old?

An American does on clay to a talented 18 year old, sure.

Robby is a decent player he dispatched the mental pebble he has my respect. He has me worried but think Baldy will win through

Journeymen float around the top 100, and never have such consistantly good results.

So no.
