Eastbourne SF - Dancevic (Q) def Santoro 64 64

This one was fun to watch. Lots of fantastic play at the net from both players, both using the entire court. Very nice grass tennis and a terrific result for Dancevic the Pirate. Second career ATP final.

Federer / Youzhny / Ancic / Raonic / Dancevic

Good stuff from Frank. It might be Frank against Tursunov again, I think Frank has a great chance be it Dima or GGL. He has got to take advantage of this and grab his first ATP title. Come on Frank! You can do it!

Yeah, a very fun match (probably more fun for me cause Frank won ). He didn't do a whole lot on Santoro's serve, but took good advantage of the second serve and got the break in each set.

He hasn't been broken since the second set against Ward

Yeah, he has Darcis R1, then probably Karlovic should he win.

If he goes up against Dima he will really have to serve much better than he did today. If he does I think he has a real shot.

Was rooting for Fab, but like Frank also. Congrats, Frank! Win the final now!

It seemed that Fab is toying with Frank in the 1st set until 3:4. Passing shots, lobs, everything. Frank saved few break points, managed to get a break, and then the match changed. I wonder, who was compiling the match statistics. W/UE 19/6 for Santoro. 6 UE?! There were a lot more UE than only 6 of them.

Nice match overall. Thoroughly enjoyed it

Yes, he is playing Steve Darcis R1. He is in Tsonga and Verdasco's zone.

Great stuff by Santoro in the first 7 games, then after failing to break he had a really big letdown, couldn't get the ball over the net, and lost the match really quickly from there.

The guy is a pretty good grass player, right? Didn't he beat Davydenko once in wimbly? I'm looking for someone to take care of that monster Karlovic before he faces Tsonga

Must've been a very nice match to watch, even though I expected Santoro to win. It's definitely retirement time.

Not Davydenko, he beat (a very disinterested) Nalbandian last year. But yes, he's a good grass court player.
