American veteran Robby Ginepri tells the Houston Chronicle that playing Challengers at age 30 is humbling. The former U.S. Open semifinalist, who won his first-round match Monday at the ATP U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship, is currently ranked No. 283.

“I’ve matured a lot and taken on a new passion for tennis,” Ginepri said. “I’m enjoying practicing and competing. It’s been good. Now it’s just about getting my ranking back up there.”
