USA’s Robby Ginepri is ranked No. 98. As the round-of-16 was played, it was a shock to see him as the last remaining American in the men’s draw. Ginepri came into Roland Garros with a 1-7 record for 2010 and a 9-31 career record on clay. The American did not just slide around a court, acting like he could hang with the top guns. Instead, he proved it, going four sets with the world No. 3 before losing – 6-4, 2-6, 6-1, 6-2.
