March 9, 2004: The Pacific Life Open draw was today and because Mark is the 12th seed he has a first round bye and will play either Lee or Youzny in the second round. Lurking as a potential quarter-final match is Agassi, but thankfully Federer is on the opposite half of the draw. Mark and Lleyton might be playing doubles, but the website doesn’t list doubles entries and their draw isn’t til the 12th.
March 8, 2004: The draw for the Pacific Life Open takes place tomorrow. The rankings out today and Mark’s first round loss in Dubai cost him 11 places in the Champions Race and 3 places in Entry Rankings. But there is some good news – the 2003 photo archive has been updated with 137 photos from the Davis Cup Final.
