They only showed the last 2 games of the first set and then went to the Roddick match. :o

But Fab played really well in those 2 games at least. A lot of disguise and good netplay as usual. :D

We only got to see the last few games here, but a nice comeback from Gaudio and a nice match from both. Santoro is awesome

The point with 2 "between the legs" shots by each player was awesome... Santoro was cramping, I hope he will go far....

Not a surprise considering GG´s previous results at the AO... Anyway..., it was a very nice match to watch and great efford from both players. :) I hope Santoro is not too tired for the next match.

Fabrice led 6-3 6-2 4-2. Then found himself a break down in the 5th. Roller coaster match, but really good from both players, we got quite a bit of coverage of it.

"It is always tough to play against Fabrice," Gaudio said earlier. "I love to watch him. I think he is one of the most talented players I have ever seen. But to play against him is very tough, almost annoying. You never know what shot he is going to play. It can drive you crazy."

LOL, almost annoying! allons, fabrice!

Santoro just had the better class in the end and Gaudio wilted at 4-5.

It was what tennis is all about.

Small wonder there's a whole thread about it.

I was a great match! But I don't think Gaudio would lost if he hadn't got tired. Anyway, I supported Fabrice all the match. Hope he can do a good match with Ferrer.

I hope he'll play fantastically in RG. I'll support him loudly there (hopefully...). :)

Well done to both players for what has been a fabulous match apparently.

It was a very entertaining match and I am glad that I recorded it.
Santoro with his usual magic volleys and Gaudio with the best backhand of this world.
Unfortunately, Ferrer will probably make Santoro pay the price for playing bellow his standard in the end of the third set.

There's a nice article about Fabrice, "Santoro and his chamber of secrets," here (http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5744,17884734%5E2722,00.html), for anyone interested. :)
