that's no news
"He's the only person in this world who can beat me - no, I mean who beat me five times in a row without any problems. This is the only one who can drive me crazy on the court like he did already for two years.
"Being told I am having to play Santoro is like being told I am going to die."
"I want to say that I play against Fabrice in the Olympic Games. I went there with all the confidence of the world, and he drove me crazy one more time."
"I couldn't talk I was so disappointed because I hate to play against him, really (laughter). For me is like almost, "You going to die tomorrow. How you feel?" Same as they told me I have to play against Santoro . You will go out from the court without tennis, you will finish this match. You will not put one ball. You finish and you can't put one ball in or you play unbelievable. Normally is going I can't play tennis anymore against Santoro. I need two weeks to prepare. I need two weeks to practice to play the next match. Let's see. Let's see"
And when he beat him:
"Best day in my life. I was scared already before the match, and it's difficult to play like this. I play today like against a normal guy. I try to make what I have to do. I knew that sometimes in some moments I will have to rush a little bit, you know, to risk. I didn't look at him, what he was doing, because when you look at him, you forget how to play tennis, for sure. You know, you start to risk, you start to make some crazy things, dropshots. I'm satisfied that I didn't get scared, I didn't get paralyzed on the court."
