Engaged Ginepri feels he'll return stronger

by: TENNIS.com July 18, 2011

Robby Ginepri, who returns to the ATP tour for the first time since last fall at this week’s tournament in Atlanta, says that he is now engaged to his girlfriend, former soccer standout Josephine Stafford. The 2005 U.S. Open semifinalist, who fell off a mountain bike and broke his elbow last year, believes he can return a better player.

"It's definitely a learning curve in my life," the 28-year-old Ginepri told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "I feel stronger coming out of it, feel more mature. Hopefully, I can use it to my advantage. When you are out that long you always hope to get back to where you were. I think I'm on the right track."
