Go, Robby, go.
Atlantan Robby Ginepri continues his quest in the French Open, now making the fourth round at the clay-court tournament and becoming the first American male to do that since Andre Agassi in 2003. Talk about keeping nice company.
Ginepri isn’t letting the pressure have an impact, at least publicly:
“Last guy standing. It’s a good feeling,” Ginepri says. “I would definitely like to have a lot of the other Americans still in the tournament, of course, but [I’m] really not trying to let that weigh on my shoulders. I’m going to just keep playing my game the way I have in the last three matches.”
Ginepri, 25, is ranked 88th and was a U.S. Open semifinalist in 2005 and recently made the U.S. team for the Beijing Olympics. It’s been fun to watch the tennis hunk’s playing comeback.
