Sexy local tennis pro Robby Ginepri made it through to the second round of the U.S. Open today, downing fellow American Amer Delic, 6-1, 6-2, 7-6 (7-5). Next up for Ginepri is 30th-seeded Croatian Marin Cilic.
Ginepri reached the semifinals here in 2005 before losing a heartbreaking five-setter to Andre Agassi. In the second round, he faces 30th-seeded Croatian Marin Cilic, a five-set winner over another Frenchman, Julien Benneteau.
“The semifinals will always be a memorable moment for me,” said the 61st-ranked Ginepri, who represented the United States at the Olympics but lost in the first round to Djokovic. “I’ve had a lot of great success here. I’m always excited to play in front of the fans. It’s a lot of energy out there on every match that I play in and I feed off that quite well.”
