Local pro tennis player Robby Ginepri leads Francoeur, the slugging (and newly chubby) Atlanta Brave, in “King of the Hardwood” voting. With one day left to vote, Ginepri has 151 of the 234 votes cast. Frenchy has 83. That’s about a two-to-one lead.

Ginepri versus Francoeur is one of the eight match ups in the Southeast Regional, which closes tomorrow. Then it’s on to the West Regional, which includes Atlanta Falcons quarterback Joey Harrington against diver Justin Wilcox among its pairings.ginepri_robby_blog2.jpg

“Hardwood” pits 64 of the hottest pro athletes from around the globe against one another. The competition format mirrors the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. Voting in the championship round opens on April 17.

Who’s your pick – Ginepri or Frenchy? If you’re an abs fan, the choice is clear.
