Santoro knows how to win close matches, Seppi doesnt
0/4 in BPs in the final set says it all. Had he gone 3-2 up with a break I'm sure the outcome would have been different as Seppi was playing quite good and Santoro wasnt having it easy. AFter that game Seppi lost serve missing 2 smashes and 1 drive volley and at 4-2 had another 2BPs, 1 of which he missed with an easy forehand
Bravo Fabrice! I'm so happy for his win and for the end of the tennis break! The off-season was driving me insane! And what a better way to start then watching a 3 setter with Fabrice. And Marcos won his double too in Chennai(against Rafa but you cannot have everything)! :tennis: :bigclap:
Santoro has the strangest game. He is the only person I know of who hits a two handed slice forehand consistently. He's crazy fast too. I acn see how he would drive other players insane. But I must admit, his U.S. open match with Blake was a classic.
That all said, good job Fabrice!
