Good luck Fabrice!

He is seeded No. 63. :eek: :eek:

You mean 36, right? :lol:

EDIT:
Opps, my bad. Pacific Life site has him on 64th place in "players fireld" now, and he's 36th in ATP rankings. :shrug:

The draw has been changed since you posted this I don't know if it effects Santoro any or not :confused: My equipment is so poor I can barely read the draw :sad:

Yes I'm beginning to wonder when tennis people can't get a draw right :rolleyes: Santoro against the X-man that could be interesting. I have never been able to figure the X-man out. It seems like he can play very good tennis, but he usually doesn't :confused: Sorry I forgot to add Allez
Santoro ;)
