An entertaining match with a lot of great points and rallies, but Federer was simply too good! Beautiful shotmaking, sublime net play, and solid serving, it was all top-notch.

*EDIT: Some match stats

Federer - Santoro

1st serve: 69% - 65%
Winners: 53 - 11
UFEs: 18 - 4
Net Approaches: 44/54 - 10/20

Santoro always got destoryed by Federer in the AO. 3 years ago -- same story.

At least that match @ the USO was close.

Gimelstob...so annoying...

but some really nice points throughout that beatdown. I love 'em both :] Only a handful of UE from the Magician and yet such a scoreline

Fed was merciless, although some great entertaining points from Le Magician.

Santoro was hilarious, I enjoy the point were he answered 3 smashes in a row from Fed, and finished winning the point :worship:

Federer played flawless.

Poor Fab :hug:

But despite the scoreline, it was entertaining. This was a quality time spent at TV.

Federer, well... just too good. Way too good.

Roger made "The Magician" dissapear.

Just ridiculous numbers for Fed in this match:

68% First serves
52 Winners
18 UE
7/14 BP
44/52 (81%) at the net. :eek:


The only bad thing is that I couldn't see the match!

I don't see anybody beating Federer in this form. Could very well be another straight set AO titel for him. :worship:
Anyway Santoro had some nice points here and there and I loved the handshake after the match. :cool:
