Ginepri announces his retirement
August 27, 2015
McLean, Va. – American tennis standout Robby Ginepri announced his retirement today after 14 years on the ATP World Tour.
Ginepri captured three titles on the ATP World Tour and reached a career-high singles ranking of 15 in the world. In 2005, Ginepri recorded a personal high in match wins (37) and had an extraordinary run to the semifinals of the US Open where he won three consecutive five set matches before going the distance and losing to Andre Agassi. During his career, the Kennesaw, Ga. resident reached the fourth round or better at all four Grand Slams and represented the U.S. in Davis Cup (2004 and 2009) and in the Olympics (2008).
“Although every athlete knows this day will eventually come, it doesn’t make the decision to retire any easier,” said Ginepri. “To play tennis as a profession and compete on the biggest stages around the world is a privilege, and I will forever be grateful to have had the opportunity.”
Ginepri will continue to stay involved with the game through the Ginepri Performance Tennis Academy, located at the Olde Towne Athletic Club in Marietta, Ga. The academy strives to develop juniors into potential collegiate student athletes and stresses leadership skills of hard work, perseverance, attention to detail, compassion for others, and lasting relationships.
Octagon, who has represented Ginepri throughout his entire career, has a rich and proud history in the sport of tennis, with clients winning over 375 Grand Slam Championship titles over three decades. Octagon is also the global leader in the ownership and management of WTA and ATP Tour events and has been widely credited for globalizing both tours.
