Or...two hands better than one?

Anyone else enjoying Santoro v Kohlschreiber? Just the greatest fun to
watch. Got to pull for the old guy.

It was more that he kept trying to hit through Santoro, and it just
wasn't working. He had the game to win, if he had just thought a bit
more, but in the end he was completely befuddled.

I think Roddick is relieved that Santoro took Kohlschreiber out.

A gas, indeed. And off went Kohlschreiber, wondering what the hell just
happened to him. Like so many before him...

And off went Santoro on a stretcher, or darned close, at the end, after
the win (back- and/or calf-spasms) . . . .

He's at the point and age where I suspect he's better off just resting on
the off-days, maybe in a whirlpool bath . . . .
