Santoro was full of praise for Federer, saying: "In November I beat Andy Roddick. I beat Novak Djokovic. I'm able to play some good tennis against the top guys.
"But it felt like he was coming from somewhere else.
"I was trying many things. I did quite a lot of topspin forehand - it didn't help. I served quite good - it didn't help.
"And when I hit some unbelievable passing shots, there was no space. The only space was out of the court. Everything is perfect in his game. Everything."
