1st and 3rd sets were pretty poor stuff from Santi. When he got his head all together, cut the errors, he won the second set easily but other than that, he played really poor stuff.
Third set was break-fest. Santi came back two times (from 1-3* and 2-4*) and had a 40-15 when he was serving for staying in the match at 4-5. He made error after error and gift the break at the end.
GGL was just stayed in rallies, served well and return was good at times. Courts were slowe than it was before, though. Santi would have better chance in this match previous surface of Paris Masters.
Now, he's heading to off season. He pretty much was over after Asian tour. (lost to Radek 1-6 3-6 in Basel and now this result) He has a lot of points to defend at the start of the 2012, so hopefully he gets really good preparation for it, vamos Santi!)
