Robby Ginepri is the local guy in the mix as he hails and still lives in the Atlanta suburb of Marietta. Interestingly enough, he’s had his most success at the Indianapolis tournament that was replaced by Atlanta. He won the title in 2005 and 2009 on hard courts. Ginepri’s other ATP title came on the grass lawns of Newport in 2003.

With a hot summer run in 2005, Ginepri topped off his success with three straight five-set victories at the US Open. His big moment came when he reached his first Grand Slam semifinal. Later that year he rose to his highest ranking of No. 15.

The first male to appear at Wimbledon in a sleeveless shirt, the handsome Georgian is also known for his dark good looks and mentions on celebrity gossip pages.
