Mark at Vancouver Open

August 2, 2006: Yesterday Mark withdrew from the Vancouver Open due to “suspected back problems.” There’s been no update as to what that is but it is likely a reoccurrance of the back spasms that bothered him back in February. Mark is still scheduled for the dBI tournament next week in Binghamton. (thanks to Ruth for the injury news)

July 30, 2006: Mark has been given a wildcard into the Odlum Brown Vancouer Open, a Challenger event in Vancovuer, British Columbia. His first round match (played either Monday or Tuesdau) will be against Simon Stadler of Germany. (Thanks to opiklop for the heads-up).
