Robby Ginepri ousts Amer Delic to reach the semis – Honolulu Challenger 2012 CH
America booming star, Robby Ginepri, trashed the eighth seed, Amer Delic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, in straight sets at the Honolulu Challenger 2012 on Friday. He formulated a 6-4, 6-4 victory over the Bosnian to advance into the final four at this ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) Challenger Tour event taking place in Honolulu, United States.
Ginepri  entered into the opening set and kept his serve in the opening game with conviction. Later he held his remaining serves without facing any difficulty and capitalised on one out of four break chances in the last game, sacking the opener with a 6-4 win.   
The 29-year-old carried his rhythm into the following set and smoothly plucked in entire serves without facing any resistance posed by Delic. He then converted one out of three break opportunities to his advantage in the last game, ultimately clinching the set with a similar score line again.
On the whole, the unseeded American committed more unforced errors and double faults. He also clobbered a lower first serve share of 59 percent as compared to the Bosnian’s 71 percent. However, Ginepri tremendously earned 27 out of 34 points on his first serve share and fired four aces to succeed.
World number 313, Ginepri, required only two serve breaks, one in each set, to triumph over the seed in straight sets at the Patsy T. Mink Central Oahu Regional Park Tennis Complex. After an 81-minutes long epic, the American not only maintained his winning record against Delic but also secured a spot in the last four. They previously met each other at the US Open four years ago where the American veteran registered a straight set victory against Delic.
The American stunned his second seeded compatriot, Bobby Reynolds, in straight sets earlier that day. Ginepri was leading 6-2, 3-2 on Thursday when the match was suspended due to rain. He resumed his match with same intensity and wiped out the last three games with a break of serve to clobber a 6-2, 6-2 score line.
A former top-15, Ginepri will next confront the seventh seed, Yuichi Sugita, who rallied past the American challenger, Tim Smyczek, in a three set thriller to reach this spot. The Japanese seed ran out of steam in the second set but redeployed his strategy in the decider, ultimately manipulating a 7-5, 2-6, 7-5 victory.
Top seeded Japanese, Go Soeda, will join the American in the semi-finals. He overpowered Jack Sock in a three set see-saw match in two hours to book this spot.
