Ginepri's offseason boot camp paying dividends
Robby Ginepri's slump has been so grave, he failed to make the player biography section in the ATP media guide. But with a coach who's willing to push him out of his comfort zone, Ginepri is steadfast in maximizing the next few years and returning to the upper echelon.
"When he's playing his best, Robby plays a style similar to Agassi -- taking the ball early off both wings, returning very well, constantly putting pressure on his opponent with aggressive, high-percentage tennis from the baseline," McEnroe said.Ginepri is training with Higueras again this week, and the coach said things are going well. "In San Jose, he tasted that feeling of winning again," he said. "That doesn't come for free. I hope he understands that he wouldn't have gotten there without what he's been going through the last few months."
