Yes. But it's underwhelming for me since there were plenty of players in the draw that I like. And it's underwhelming since Ginepri hasn't done anything of note for a while (and I'm not counting his Futures win) and I'm skeptical about whether he can build on this result. Plus I've always disliked Ginepri

I'm glad Rhyne took the title

Break was coming, and here it is. *4-2 Rhyne. I cant see how Robby will escape from losing, unless Williams choke pretty badly.

Massive hold for Ginepri being 0-30 down. He is still with back issues it seems. Maybe its more mental, I dont know. We will see further in the match.

Edit: Doesnt look good for Robby. He is not even trying in Rhyne service games.

Looking at your signature, not sure if you know this but Austin Krajicek is a distant relative of Richard Krajicek.

Almost quit tennis at one point I didn't like the idea of him playing college tennis, but glad he did. It was good for him to get away from the spotlight.


In case anyone is wondering, his grandfather is Mike DePalmer Sr (an ITA Hall of Fame Coach and founder of the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy). Rhyne is also the nephew of a former ATP Top 50 pro who coached Boris Becker.
