AO R2: Santoro def. Kohli [32] 5-7 7-5 3-6 7-5 6-3

The magician strikes again. Match lasted 4+ hours.
He seemed really tired at the end but produced some fine winners again

Santoro: 51 winners 34 UE's - 8/29 BP's
Kohli: 94 winners 69 UE's - 7/19 BP's

Very entertaining match.

Fabrice cramped up right at the end, just before the final mp.

Re: AO R2: Santoro def. Kohli [32] 5-7 7-5 3-6 7-5 6-3

yessssssssssssssssss

what a legend the magician is, he totally killed Kohli with his slicing and dicing, a true joy to watch, Santoro was pushed to his limit physically but he came out on top

Santoro stats:
W/U: 51/34
break points won: 8/29
net points won: 55/72

Kohli stats:
W/U: 94/69
break points won: 7/19
net points won: 72/97

Magic

Just spectacular from Santoro, especially since he seems like he has cramped up horribly now the match is over.

This will be one of the most entertaining and also best matches of the AO. Such a great fight, many great points. Of course that is to be expected, as both guys have a very entertaining game style that also works well together.

Fabrice almost collapsed, got a time violation on his fourth MP, but chip-and-charged to close it out. Some amazing stuff. I was supporting Kohli, but I can never be sad when Fabrice wins. He is a true legend.

Too bad Roddick will probably blow him away Friday, assuming that Roddick will make it against Malisse.

What a match, Philip could not believe it, the look on his face as he walked back to the locker room! Great win for Fab, really pleased for him. Looks like it will be Roddick next as he's two sets up against Malisse.

Le Magician having an anxiety attack after the MP, he could not breathe. Abracadabra - again.
