Santoro did not play bad in the first set. He was outplayed. Simple. Roger was hitting winners upon winners, 19 total to only 3 or so from Santoro. So, it doesn't compare to any ugly tennis where one player makes about 15 or 20 errors and the opponent has no winners and then he/she wins 6-0. The only thing Santoro did not do was serve well. Simple.
