I think Santoro has a good chance as this is one of his last ever matches, although his record for 1st round matches is very poor of recent. post your thoughts.
he is just too old for this dynamic sport now. he has got to be pushing 38 or so. decline in his singles game has been relatively steep since 2007.
it might be time to start looking at doubles a little more seriously if he wants to linger around the sport for another year or so.
