WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) -- Robby Ginepri earned a wild card into the French Open's main draw from the U.S. Tennis Association.
The 31-year-old Ginepri clinched the wild card Saturday by defeating James McGee, 6-1, 6-4, in the semifinals of the Wild Card Challenge in Tallahassee, Florida.
''I'm thrilled to go back to Paris, it's a special place for me,'' Ginepri said.
Ginepri, a 2005 U.S. Open semifinalist, is ranked 442nd. He returned in 2012 after missing almost two years following a mountain-bike accident that broke his left elbow.
Players vie for the wild card based on results on the USTA Pro Circuit.
