    Of course this was after being up a set and two breaks.

    On a related note, I noticed he is now featured on TW's front page.

    Anyone ever seen a score like that in the pros before? Once my friend won 2-6 6-0 6-0, but that is a totally different case.

    But seriously though, has Robby had any good results since his Davis Cup match earlier this year? I had hoped that he would break through a little bit after that great five set win.

    How could he have been up a set and two breaks and lost 0 and 0. That would mean he had gotten some games after winning the set...

    Actually, the score was 5-7, 7-5, 6-0...which he lost to clay court veteran and defending champion, Felix Mantilla. Don/Tennis Warehouse

    Ginepri lost to hewitt once 0 and 0 in cincinnati, I dont know about the match he played against Mantilia But i think its defintely possible to get bagled, You could have lot of deuces and advantages maybe robby wasnt able to capitalize those points i dont know, If you look at total points won, you will see if he really got killed or not, It would be a differnt story if robby only got few points and other player got like 100 points , that is really getting crushed but i think its possible to lose like that in pros game. It doesnt nessarily mean that you got crushed just becase u lost 0 and 0 , just find out the total points won and you will know if he really got killed by Mantillia in that match or not

    Well, up 7-5 5-1, 2 breaks, you have a total of 4 match points, but still lose 12 games straight. Sounds kinda like a choke job to me.

    7-5, 5-1 and 4 match points! Gotta be a record. I do remember a women's match with Nancy Richey where she was up a set and up 5-0 and ended up losing 7-5 6-0 and a few years ago I remember a women's match where one was serving for the match up 5-1 I think and lost in a terrific collapse. Momentum!

    Yes, he choked, but he had four match point on the defeding Italian Open champion, not bad.
