Rhyne Williams Beats Dancevic and Ginepri and Takes Dallas Challenger
I’ve been high on RW since last summer when I saw him play in the Challengers. Now the not-yet 22-year-old has won the biggest Challenger event in the U.S. taking down Canadian Davis Cupper, Dancevic, and U.S. Open semifinalist, Ginepri. I’d thought last year’s US Open would be Ginepri’s final event, but he’s still grinding. I guess he’s only a year younger than Roddick, and at 29, maybe Robbie has something left in the tank.
But Williams has clearly set himself up as the No. 1 contender to another RW as the next best American young player. At first, it looked like it’d be Klahn or Steve Johnson, and then Kudla, and then Sock who would emerge, but it’s Williams and now let’s see if this win propels him into prominence this year.
