Re: Robby in Usa Hardcourt Season

According to Robby website which was last updated 10/13/2010. He is in rehab after elbow surgery!!!!!!!!! I just heard broken arm so I wasn't thinking about the elbow! He is trying to be ready to come back at the start of 2011. Robby is also 28 now as of last month. Sadly I think time is slipping away from Robby when it comes to his tennis career

Apparently he swerved to miss a squirrel when he was on his bike, yes. really unlucky.

Hopefully next season will be the beginning of a resurgence in the career of Ginepri.
Was it a squirrel that caused the accident????????? I hadn't heard anything other than The Tennis Channel scrolled on the bottom of their picture that Robby had broken his arm in a biking accident. They didn't even say which arm it was! I was at least glad to hear if it had to happen it was his left arm. Gee if a squirrel caused that accident Robby may well already be in the Tommy Haas luck department Some years ago Tommy was at Wimbledon and I can't remember if he was warming up for a Match or just practicing (I think it was a practice sessison?) but somehow a tennis ball was just laying on the court and Tommy stepped on it and torn up his ankle

Re: Robby in Usa Hardcourt Season

Robby! I just found out what happened to him when I was looking for his next appearance, and Robby's website posted this:

"On Friday, September 24th, Robby underwent a successful surgery on his left arm that was broken due to a biking accident he had earlier in the week. Robby will now forced to be sidelined the remainder of the fall and 2010 ATP World Tour schedule he planned to play, but his anticipated recovery time for his left arm will allow him to get back into training for the Australian Open and summer schedule down under in the beginning of 2011. To get the latest updates on Robby and how his recovery is coming along, check back soon."

I agree that at least it is his left arm and not his right, so I pray for a speedy recovery. And I really hope Robby takes the bad things in life and tries to make the best of it and live out the rest of his career with a sense of optimism, positivity, and growth. With unfortunate circumstances like this, you have the potential to really come back stronger than ever, but it'll take hard work, dedication, and a love for the sport, along with support from others to really do this, and I hope he looks forward to fighting back! Get well soon, Robby!

A broken arm. Great. At least it was his left... recovery shouldn't be nearly as difficult.

Robby just can't catch a break with the breaks (bad pun, I know). Just a lot of injuries and a lack of confidence in general have really damaged his career the last few years.

Re: Robby in Usa Hardcourt Season

Well I got all the information I needed in Tommy's Forum so thanks. But I'm still in shock over Robby's lack of luck

Thanks for letting us know about that But I can't believe how Robby has such bad luck If he doesn't watch it he will be right up there with Tommy Haas in the luck department--which is one department no one should want to be in Good Luck to David in Vietnam. I'm not expecting much from Tommy with this being the first time he has played since his hip surgery.

Re: Robby in Usa Hardcourt Season

Robby is scheduled to play in the Heineken Stars 2010 Exhibition in Vietnam Oct. 1 and 2. The other players are David Nalbandian,
Sam Querry, and Tommy Haas. This Exhibition will be the first time Tommy has played since his hip surgery. It's kind of an interesting line up of players IMHO.

Yes I would say at Robby's age and with all the young players coming up from so many countries now--he is running out of time quickly

What happened with the Sports Psychologist? Wasn't Robby playing his best tennis while he was seeing an S.P.? Or may be he was playing his best tennis right after seeing a S.P.? I get the timeline of Robby's career confused In fact I never even had the timeline of his life correct until just recently I really thought he had lived in Fla. not Ga. for years

I have no idea where he will go next, because he will have to QUALIFY just to play anywhere this Fall... But he NEEDS to go for it, because what he is sorely lacking is match wins that he can build confidence from. The only string of wins that he had this year was during the clay season, and he needs wins on hardcourt to get his ranking back up!
