Robby Ginepri upset the last great hope for American tennis, Sam Querrey, in straight sets today to win his second Indianapolis title.
Ginepri's placement in the All-American final was nearly perfect, as he ran Querrey all over the court with dangerous tact and poise. Sam was unable to land his first serve, and--on a couple of important occassions-- his second serve, and without the threat of this 130-mph thunder to keep Ginepri honest, the 32-year old American was able to seize control of most every exchange.
After losing the first set 6-2, Querrey rallied back to take control in the second. However, he lost a crucial break point with the advantage to Genepri, after blowing a 40-0 lead. He then double-faulted and went down 5-4. Ginepri then went up 40-0, and his serve was returned a foot deep of the baseline. Robby went to one knee, pointed to the sky, and claimed his second Indianapolis title-- the only two ATP events he has won in the last four years. His prize is $91k.
Top-seed Russian coward Dmitry Tursunov was still afraid to play me in Wii Tennis on the concourse, but got some small retribution for his quarter-final loss to Frank Dancevic by winning the Doubles title, in league with Latvian whipper-snapper Erensts Gulbis. They defeated a pair of well-seasoned Australian teammates in Ashley Fisher and Jordan Kerr for a cool 30-grand a piece.
