AO R1 | (14) Cilic retires(?) Santoro 7/5 7/5 6/3

I suppose we've finally seen the last from Fabrice then. Or have we?

Au revoir, at least for now.

I would definitely put a question mark after "retires"

Have a nice life, Fab.

Wouldn't Santoro prefer to finish off his career at RG?

Re: AO 10 | (14) Cilic retires(?) Santoro 7/5 7/5 6/3

really this match could have went santoro's way. he wasn't outplayed all that much liek many of you predicted. i mean both of the first sets went to 5-5. and cilic had many UE. i could see though, that cilic really wanted to end the match as he started to play more aggressive and stop just hitting the ball bsck to santoro. because in the end, santoro would win it with some magical volley or overhead kill.

good work santoro, we'll see you soon, prolly before the years out i would guess.

cilic wasn't aggressive enough until 6-5 in the second

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Why the fuck is Santoro still playing? Retire already, though I do respect his longevity and craftiness.

I think Santoro upset his rhythm completely.

Hasn't Santoro been on about retiring since 2008...I doubt this is it.
