Fun match

Kinda of crap match obviously due to the weather but still great effort from Santoro.

Santoro did have a break at *1-0 in the third but was broken at love. Blake served for the match 5-3 but was broken at love. Santoro had 40-30 in the last game too.

James claims he had an upset stomach. He really should have won in straight sets, but Fabrice made him work for it.

:smash: Blake still sucks at saving break points - today once again lost all games when Santoro had break points :help: It should have been straight sets victory.

Ridiculous match.
Santoro had a break early in the third,got broken back right away,Blake served for the match at 5-3,got broken to love but then Santoro lost his shitty serve again after having a gp.:rolleyes:

Blake struggled a lot out there physically... Good win.

Santoro... I just bow down to this man. 35 years old but his value is light years ahead of most of the other players on the tour.

Nice contrast of styles although not such a good match by the end quality wise. Still an engaging match to watch because of the drama and unpredictability.

Blake especially gave away a lot of return games until 4-3 in the third set.

Good one to watch, and it looks like Blake really struggled, he barely moved to some of the balls

03-30-2008, 08:06 PM
Great win for James. :worship: I hope he feels better soon, though.

Mugs Match

Did James want to be out there? He looked like a zombie and moved like one too!! :o

Hope he gets a night match or he will be out against Stepanek. :rolleyes:

James way to go a win is a win

03-30-2008, 08:23 PM
that was painful to watch.

03-30-2008, 08:30 PM
Fabrice almost made it. Guess he was out of spells :sad:

Not a good match by either player, Blake managed to break for the match in the 3rd.

Go Blake! Go get Rafa this time.

Apparently, he had an upset stomach. I'm sure all will agree that when you have indigestion, the last thing you want to do is run around in the heat.

Get well Blake!

Hopefully Blake feels better in his next match or he's screwed.

03-31-2008, 07:22 AM
Damn, these two play a lot.

Santoro > Blake.
