Yikes! Journalist Doug Robson reports that American Robby Ginepri is out of the Indian Wells and Miami tournaments after his appendix burst two weeks ago. Geesh, that’s really, really bad. Here’s the dish from Doug’s Sport Dish:
One conspicuous absence in the Coachella Valley (Indian Wells) for the American men is Robby Ginepri. Here’s why: About two weeks ago, the Georgia native’s appendix burst, according to his agent, Tom Ross. Ross said the 26-year-old had stomach pain and went to see the doctor but they didn’t diagnose it at first — not uncommon with appendicitis. He then returned home and it blew in the middle of the night. Ross said the 65th-ranked Ginepri spent eight days in the hospital and would miss Miami. He hopes to return in April.
Get well soon, Robby!
