Retired: Fabrice Santoro

Fabrice 'The Magician' Santoro

Nicknamed “The Magician” by Pete Sampras after losing in three sets in 3rd RD of Indian Wells in 2002, Santoro literally bamboozled his opponents with a 2-hander off both sides, slicing and dicing his way to the net with a deceptively powerful serve. Some players just couldn’t play him like Safin (2-9).
