OMG did anyone just see that? Point of the tournament!

Anyone just see the point between Santoro and Gaudio, set point at 40-15 in the 2nd set? Unreal surely the best point of the championship.

Re: OMG did anyone just see that? Point of the tournament!

I was going to start a thread on a distinctly similar theme, so to speak. Absolutely sublime, one of the best points I've seen for quite some time.

Well, barbeque my hamhocks! Your half is gone! Now don't - I say - don't give me no lip, son. You've gotta stick by your bargain. I'd do the same! ....... Well, hog gravy and chitlins! MY half is gone! I-I-I know what you're gonna say son. When two halves is gone there's nuthin' left - and you're right. It's a little ol' worm who wasn't there. Two nuthins is nuthin'. That's mathematics son. You can argue with me but you can't argue with figures. Two half nuthins is a whole nuthin'!

it was similar to the Hewitt v Fed point in the TMS final last year. Shots through the legs from both players, awesome stuff

Nice point. Santoro's matches are always entertaining.

Yeah, I wasn't exactly surprised/floored by the prospect of Santoro succeeding in it (cue the through the legs-shot against Federer during US Open last year), I was more like expecting it, but then Gaudio responded in fashion and it just went on from there and turned into some crazy crescendo of awe-inspiring proportions. So awesome.

Me too MisterQ, but we can't cuz we barely have any coverage here in the US.

And even if we did, do you think we'd get to see Gaudio/Santoro? Not...
