2005 US OPEN
ROBBY GINEPRI v GUILLERMO CORIA
4-6, 6-1, 7-5, 3-6, 7-5
Ginepri, a 22-year-old who had never gone beyond the third round of the Open, won his third straight five-setter against a seeded player, 4-6, 6-1, 7-5, 3-6, 7-5, Wednesday and guaranteed that an American will play in the final. Both players were battling against mental and physical fatigue and that showed as both players committed double faults at crucial times in the match.
Both men engaged in a battle for the next two sets, taking one apiece after some intense rallies.
The fifth set was just as thrilling but it was the American wildcard who made the decisive break in the final game to reach his first Grand Slam semi-final. The American crowd was strongly behind Ginepri and might have proved the difference. Ginepri said he was exhausted and not sure how he won , and will have to recover quickly to be ready for his next battle against Agassi in the semifinals.
