Last American Standing

The Robby Ginepri Comeback Express keeps moving through Paris, with his straight-set victory over Florent Serra of France 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 on Saturday. With both Williams sisters bounced yesterday, Ginepri -- whose right arm is so heavily bandaged in black and white tape that he looks like he shouldn't even be lifting a fork -- is now the last American in the French Open singles draw. He's also the first man from the United States to reach the round of 16 since Andre Agassi in 2003, which is even more remarkable when you consider that a week ago he owned an 0-5 record at Roland Garros and a 6-24 career mark on clay, and that he was ranked 171st in January after losing in the first round of qualifying at the Australian Open. (Could sharing a coach with Roger Federer -- Jose Higueras -- really be making that much of a differnce?) (NYT)

Are you sure that outfit wasn't just a fashion statement from the "gentle soul?" I wish Justin would us a little more. Maybe he will...

Go Robby!

His hair is so hideous and yet I love him so.
