    under one's skin

    Dear Sir/Ms

    What is the meaning of 'under one's skin'?, as showed in the quotation as the following:When Federer got embroiled in a long chat with Romano Grillotti, the umpire, at 3-3 in the second set, Safin was getting under the world No 1ís skin.

    The idiom to get under one's skin means, to irritate. I have no idea, though, how it fits in to the context you provided. Sorry.
