Assuming true, it's incredible how shit he had to play to give this mug a chance. Absolutely nothing on the balls he is giving back most times.

Nothing new, everyone who folllowed tennis back then remembers this match.

Mind you, the betting markets belived firmly in a Djokovic turn around from start to finish so it's very unlikely Djokovic made any money on this loss, he just didn't feel like playing Paris.

Santoro gave prime Federer difficulty and leads the H2H against Safin. Also has over 40 Top 10 wins. Trickier than some might think.


As to this match I recall hearing Djokovic had some dental surgery done just prior (wisdom teeth?).

Obvious tank, no intensity, half assed effort, October it's excusable after a long season.

Ancic' coach Rosengren said years later that he had heard Djokovic had already booked flights out of Paris before the match...

It was said even before the match that Novak Djokovic was carrying a foot injury, so his movement was hampered.

He also lost in straight sets in every match at the Masters Cup thereafter.

This, he was not tanking that match lol. He was still eating gluten back in the time so he was not as resilient as nowadays so santoro destroyed him with his tricks
