August 9, 2005 06:40 AM

After his second career title at Indianapolis, Georgia native, Robby Ginepri, finds himself in second place in the US Open Series. Returning from a week off, he will continue his quest to become America's third top-20 player at the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters in Cincinnatti. Posting a 10-2 record in his past three tournaments with wins over Andy Roddick, Paradorn Srichaphan and James Blake, Ginepri is proving to finally be tapping into his true potential.

After three weeks of play Robby Ginepri, who won the RCA Championships in Indianapolis during the first week of the 2005 US Open Series, tails Andy Roddick by a mere two points in the standings. American men are dominating play as the top five spots have been claimed by U.S. players. Roddick's win over Blake gives American players a sweep of the first three men's singles titles in the 2005 US Open Series. Andre Agassi, who won the Mercedes-Benz Cup in Los Angeles last week, is third followed by James Blake and Taylor Dent, who are tied for fourth.

Ginepri was unable to compete in the Canadian Open because of his ranking, but was awarded the third main-draw wild card into the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters. In addition to Ginepri, Blake and Fish received wild cards into the main draw of the tournament.

The men's and women's winners of the US Open Series will compete for double prize money at the 2005 US Open. For more US Open Series updates, visit www.usta.com.
