I think Dominik will break the record. He's fit enough to play till 33, and never has any serious injuries

This is a very interesting list. Can you develop a similar list for the TMS events? (a listing of players with longest TMS consecutive tournaments played; or alternately a list of players appearing in all 9 TMS events each year -- since 1990)?

Hrbaty won't make it. After failing to defend his Paris points next week he'll drop out of the top 100.

Veteran Santoro will be in spotlight
TOM TEBBUTT
ttebbutt@globeandmail.com
January 7, 2008 at 7:58 AM EST

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA — Luckily for the tennis world, young Fabrice Santoro ignored the advice of a tennis coach who insisted he wasn't going anywhere hitting two-handed on both the backhand and forehand wings.

"I started playing at 6½, my papa was a tennis teacher," he explained yesterday at the Sydney International. "Watching him give lessons, I got a racquet and started to play. He said, 'If you want to play with two hands, you can play with two hands, no problem.' When I was 12, a coach told me, 'If you want to be a champion some day, you can't play with two hands.' Happily, I didn't listen to him. After that, nobody ever tried to change me."

Santoro, 35, will be in the spotlight at the Australian Open next week when he plays his 62nd Grand Slam event, eclipsing Andre Agassi's record of 61. He will also become the leader, among active players, with 38 in a row, taking over from Dominik Hrbaty, who has 44, but is injured and not playing.

"It's very symbolic in the sense that it means I've had a long career," Santoro said of the record, "and indicates a certain longevity in terms of ranking [he has been as high as No. 17 and in the top 62 a total of 16 years, including the past 11 consecutively] and fitness. Playing 62 Grand Slams means you haven't been hurt much. I've never had surgery. It's a record that means a lot to me."

The Frenchman, barely 5 foot 10, is a racquet wizard, changing the pace, spin and direction of shots in a way unique in today's game.

"For me, the best tennis is natural tennis," he said. "You really can't play if you try to go against what's natural.

"Don't forget that the best woman not too long ago played with two hands on both sides, Monica Seles. If she hadn't had the problem with the attack [Hamburg in 1993], she would have dominated tennis for a long time."

As a youngster, Santoro at least had a role model. "When I was a kid, people talked to me a lot about Gene Mayer [the clever American double-fister who ranked as high as No. 4 in 1980]. I actually once worked with Gene Mayer for a few weeks in New York."

About playing today's big hitters, 37th-ranked Santoro said, "the thing you have to avoid against those guys is backing up. What's important for me is to be on the defensive as little as possible, even if I know I'll be on the defensive a lot because I'll be forced to."

"I have to use my weapons to try to slow down the game, change the pace and make them play a little bit like me."

His sweet repertoire has flummoxed many an opponent, Marat Safin first and foremost. "Safin is often anxious and has broken racquets when he plays me," Santoro said. "But I've never really understood why. I think it's more psychological than the actual tennis." He is 7-2 against the volatile Russian.

Another Russian, Nikolay Davydenko, is his nemesis. He has not won a set (0-11) in their four meetings.

A highlight of Santoro's career was a 2005 U.S. Open night match in Arthur Ashe Stadium against Roger Federer. The Swiss won 7-5, 7-5, 7-6 (2), but the result was secondary to an enchanting display by two artists.

"To be truthful, more and more I think that spectators come to see a show," Santoro said. "Of course, when I play I want to win. [But] the people paid to see the match, and as a player, je me suis régalé [literally, I was regaled] and Federer had a good time. In the end, the loss was of no importance.

"We talked in the locker room 10 minutes later. It was incredible, we'd just been through a great experience. I've never played another match that was like that one, never."

It appears 2008 is his swan song. "There's a good chance I'll make it to 65 Grand Slams this year," he said, "but there's very little chance I'll play next year."

When asked about the best compliment he had ever received, he does not hesitate.

"It would to be from Pete Sampras when he called me the magician," he said. "Coming from him, it's something I'll never forget."
