I thought I might try and revive this thread, esp since I saw Tripp play quite a bit these last few weeks. He and Rogier Wassen had a pretty good time at Wimby, winning his first ever match there.
They beat Haggard/Hrbaty, the #16 seeds, before going down to Labadze/Vemic in five sets. I met Tripp's girlfriend at Wimbledon, whom is very nice
I guess he will be playing in Newport next week, good luck!
