What a match! :eek:

It was a fun match to watch. A lot of variety from Santoro as usual and Benneteau too came to the net when he had an opportunity to. Santoro had 4 MPs at 5-3* and served for it at *5-4 but Benneteau fought on. :yeah:

I thought Santoro will take this one already with all those MPs... :sad:

Fuck, not again, Santoro. He just cant hold games when he is leading with a break. This happened so often this year, it's not funny anymore.

Boring player wins. :(

It was a cool match :cool:

Thanks God that Santoro won't face Feña :angel: his freaky style of play really worried me thinking in a match against Gonzo, so I was rooting for Benneteau today ;)

Deboogle!.

A choke by Fabrice? :tape:Pretty much. Not the game at 5-4 Benneteau played a great return game there but the MPs he had at 5-3 he played some really bad shots and then a DF in the tiebreak...

I think he even had two DFs in that TB. :mad:

Santoro did exactly the same thing in metz agaisnt mathiue in the 1st round was 3-0 up (double break) in the decider and lost the match.

Exactly. And what about the FO match against Acasuso?

Most likely the best match from the tournament.

Santoro almost repeated Federer's 2002 Basel shot, with that smash in the tie-break, 3cm upper, and it would have been a jumping-smash-passing shot.

No stars, no Santoro. Tournament is getting worse and worse. Safin next up to tank.

Facrice, are you doing it on purpose? :smash: :banghead: :help:

Anyway, it was a very entertaining match. At least Safin won't have to worry about a possible final against Santoro. :lol:
