Mark will once again be playing World Team Tennis this summer. However, this year Mark was traded to the Boston Lobsters. Matches begin on July 7th and the exact schedule is expected in March.
Last week Mark also apparently played some kind of double exhibition match in Memphis as part of the U.S. National Indoor Championships. While there, he spoke to the press about wanting to speak to countryman Tomic to offer some career guidance. (Tomic is similar to Mark in being a young player with loads to talent who’s leading a crazy lifestyle off court and not focusing enough on his game). While in Memphis he also gave the following video interview with Lyndsay Davenport.
