Ginepri ousted from ‘Hardwood’

Add this share

So long, Robby. You put up a good fight.

Robby Ginepri, the professional tennis player from Kennesaw, didn’t make the most recent cut in “King of the Hardwood.” Brad Ausmus, the Houston Astros catcher, bested Ginepri 164-112 in the Elite Eight round and moved on to the Final Four with Ben Cohen (photo), Sean Lamont and Dan Carter.

Ginepri was the last of the local pro jocks in the voting, having outlasted Jeff Francoeur, the Braves slugger, and Joey Harrington, a Falcons quarterback.

So now it’s Lamont vs. Carter and Ausmus vs. Cohen, the gay-friendly English rugby player. Final Four voting runs through Wednesday. Check the current vote totals, review the brackets and ogle the photos.
