    That was the first Santoro match I've ever seen. I wanted him to win so badly!

    He really is a tennis treasure. Can you imagine how much fun he'd have playing the Seniors tour? Let's hope he doesn't slow down and opts to keep playing when he retires from the ATP.

    Santoro's volley

    I'm always amazed with the Santoro net game, considering he plays with a racquet that seems to be about 28 in. long, the guy has sweet volleys. Anybody try playing high speed dubs/s&v singles and having success with a 28 incher? He is truly unique.

    I watched Santoro warm up at the Aussie open this year... He did this shot... he was at the net and some one lobs it over his head... he was jus muckin round but he moves back... and he wasnt lookin and hit it on the full and did the most amazing shot and got it in... its so hard to explain but maybe you can get wat im gettin at?? haha it was sick tho.

    This guy is great. The Op's clip was the best one I think. Shamefully I have actually never seen a full Santoro match.

    Whatever happened to Santoro's own line of racquets that were supposed to be made?

    Great player, in a different era where tactics and strategy mattered more he would be a top player IMHO. As it is, he handles a lot of power players very well but the power and spins of todays game is just too much. I'd love to see more of him though
