The ranking points Kutrovsky will get from this week will be more than half of the ranking points he's got in the last 12 months

LIKE: Stepanek, Youzhny, Stakhovsky, Raonic, Pouille || HATE: Nadal, Almagro, Monfils, Troicki, Simon, Tipsarevic

Damn, really shades of Santoro when you see those DH shots. Obviously, not nearly as much magic as the Frenchie but still a good tribute. Hope he gets further. Who's he playing next?

not even a fan but still very happy for him. I hope he can use this as a leaping point to jump forward and improve the rest of the year

he's got harrisson/ginepri next so he has an outside shot at a semi final

Re: San Jose R2: Dimitar "Santoro" Kutrovsky def. Blake Strode 7-5 6-3

Since I've never seen or heard of this guy prior to now, is the "Santoro" nickname implying his style of play, size, physical appearance, or something else?
