Ginepri Wins Second Indianapolis Title

July 26, 2009 04:00 PM

Months after battling appendicitis and dropping 13 pounds, Robby Ginepri, of Kennesaw, Ga., had his best week in nearly four years. He defeated Sam Querrey 6-2, 6-4 to take his second Indianapolis title.

Ginepri is now the leader in the US Open Series point race, raking in the first 70 points awarded on the men’s side. The winner of the six-tournament series can win up to $1,000,000 Bonus Prize Money, based on their performance at the 2009 US Open.

Ginepri won his third career title and his second Indianapolis title (2005). He also won Newport on grass in 2003.

With five victories this week, Ginepri more than doubled his four victories earlier this year. The illness took away months of time on the court for the Georgian. He jumped 39 spots to reach No. 56 on the ATP Tour.

Ginepri dominated the big serving, 6’6” Querrey, often moving inside the baseline to knock off second serves. He was solid from the ground throughout the match, using his down-the-line backhand to keep the Californian off the net.

In the semifinal, Ginepri downed former Georgia Bulldog and North Carolina resident John Isner 6-4, 6-3.
