Marat Safin survived a match point Wednesday before reaching the quarterfinals of the Gerry Weber Open when France's Fabrice Santoro withdrew in the third set with a thigh injury. The Australian Open champion led 3-6, 7-6 (7), 3-2 when Santoro quit the $800,000 grasscourt event after his left thigh was taped courtside.
