Tokyo R1: Santoro avoids another tough loss, beats Golubev 6-7, 7-6, 6-2

Well the farewell tour got a bit of a lift today. I thought Fab was gonna blow after serving for the first and losing the tb. But he was 0-40 and ad-out at 5-5 in the second and 0-2 in the third. Somehow he managed the win.

OMG, great! Followed it on the SB and couldn't be more happier for him. So good to finally have a win after the tough losses in the last weeks, especially last week.

Hewitt will probably be exit, but still, enjoy this win Fabrice!

Fabreeeeeeeeeeeze.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

good win for santoro. toughed it out which is great to see as it would be very easy to not put the effort in at this stage of his career.

Fab I'm glad he pulled out the win. I'd love to see him have a good run at a tournament before he retires.

Yes, he should play 2010, whole season... but he won´t, he just too tired

Good luck next
