Mark takes the court tomorrow against Nadel as the second match on Arthur Ashe. Also there’s an interesting article about the ATP’s plans to make some changes to the tour events for next season. Changes include starting tournaments on Sundays (instead of Mondays) and using a round robin format in early rounds. The changes are designed to increase the sports visibility and encourage more fans to follow the sport.
The draw has been released for the US Open starting next week. Unfortunately Mark did not get any benefit to his chances. He’s in the bottom quarter of the draw and his first round opponent will be none other than Rafael Nadal, the second seed. Mark’s going to need to bring his number one game if we wants to advance to the second round.
