The Magician (Fabrice Santoro)

He was The Magician.

He gave hope to Club players and hackers everywhere.

Santoro had a very crafty game.  He utilized much slice.   He had a two-handed forehand slice and a powerful tw0-handed backhand.

The talented frenchman had a long career.  He played many many #1 players.    Marat Safin famously said about Santoro:  “Seeing your name next to his in the draw was like being told you are about to die.”
