Robby Ginepri Advances to Quarterfinals at the US Open

September 6, 2005 09:21 AM

Robby Ginepri of Marietta, GA advanced to his first Quarterfinal in a Grand Slam Event last night defeating No. 13 Richard Gasquet of France 6-3, 3-6, 6-7 (8), 6-4, 6-0. Ginepri’s next opponent will be No. 8 Guillermo Coria of Argentina, who beat Nicolas Massu of Chile 6-4, 2-6, 6-7 (5), 6-2, 6-2, in a match that lasted 4 hours, 32 minutes and featured plenty of trash-talking.

Ginepri has been brilliant during the US summer hard court season, capturing his second career title in Indianapolis, with a notable career-first win over Andy Roddick, and reaching the semifinals in Cincinnati (l. to Federer) with impressive wins over Carlos Moya and Marat Safin.

Ginepri is one of three American men left in the draw. Andre Agassi defeated Xavier Malisse in five sets on Monday and James Blake posted a 4-6, 7-5, 6-2, 6-3 win over No. 19 seed Tommy Robredo of Spain. The two will meet in another Quarterfinal match.
