Yes, good match from Ginepri. He was better from the baseline, Haas missed too many chances to follow up good shots (got stuck at the baseline instead and waited for Ginepri retrieving the ball deep into the field instead of going to the net to smash these volleys in) or to convert shots from halffield. Also Ginepri's serve was very solid, higher percentage, more easy points, less double faults, more effective and more aces. Haas's serve sucked and was almost completely uneffective and useless.

I couldn't even blame Haas for not trying, he played overall a good match and didn't surrender at any point. He made some tactical errors there and his serve was not good enough to win matches like that.

Re: Ginepri def. Hass in 5

Yes, let's spell well.

Does Ginepri ever smile? It's amazing how lacking in personality he is. But whatever, he's playing good tennis and I don't hate him. A year ago, this result would have upset me. But I'm kinda done with Tommy H. *shrug*

The bottom half of the draw looks to be dominated by Americans.

Hmmm... I have to see this match so that I can figure out if Blake or Ginepri is going to win the semi-finals... ;) :devil:

Robby defeats another nemesis and makes it to R16 of a slam for the first time :banana: :banana: :banana: Super Saturday was super for the Americans. Agassi, Blake, Davenport, now Ginepri all roll into the second week. This is huge for American tennis.
:D :cool: :bigclap: :drive:

Ginerpri has personality, I just question his IQ. :) I think his being a little dim gives the illusion of lacking personality.

What happened with the kid and the ball? I was getting a soda, and when I came back, I heard boos from the crowd and all I could pick up on was that it had something to do with a kid and a ball.

Ginepri is completely void of personality. It's somewhat shocking. However, as you noted, he's playing good tennis. I enjoyed watching a bit of him, in spite of myself :yeah:

His oncourt interview was the most animated that I'd ever seen him. :lol: It always surprises me how a professional athlete could be classified as shy (which Robby is). How can an athlete be shy when he has to perform in front of thousands of people? :scratch:

Anyway, I'm thrilled for the kid. :hatoff:

Some of us were not surprised by this result at all. And some of us know that Robby is not complete lacking in personality. And those same some of us prefer to belong to a somewhat exclusive group for now. :D

Go Robby! :yippee:

Haas choked big time :eek:. I still can´t get why people think Ginepri is more of a threat than Blake :shrug:
Haas had the break in all three first sets and couldn't hold serve ffs to consolidate it.
Fifth set was no choke then as you can only choke when you have something to choke away.

Like I said, his serve sucked and he missed opportunities to come to the net.

Robby (like Scoville Jenkins) is very introverted. I think it allows him to block out everything that's going on around him and just live inside the lines of the court. Robby avoids crowds more often than he stands there and faces them. Bless him, he was so cute on Tuesday when he tried to sign for everyone who was standing there. Man, I'm just so excited for him. :cool:

Indeed he choked as he double faulted and missed 3 easy fh in a single game. He did the same in 1st and 3rd sets. Not enough of a choke?

If you like to see it that way, according to your definition almost everything is a choke then. Every loss of serve, every missed volley, every unforced error.
