Robby, we hardly knew ‘ya.
Tennis hottie Robby Ginepri, who hails from Kennesaw, was booted from Wimbledon today in his opening round match against Chilean Fernando Gonzalez. It was González that defeated Ginepri on June 2 to oust him from the French Open, though at the time he was the last male U.S. tennis player competing.
The third set was once again close as Ginepri, unlike in his French Open loss to González, refused to be stream rolled. Playing the higher ranked Chilean to a near draw, Ginepri held his service until almost the very end. In the 12th game, however, González was finally able to seal the deal, scoring the break that would earn him passage to Wimbledon’s second round.
Earlier this month, Ginepri lost to Andy Roddick in the second round of the Artois Championships.
