Mark loses, shows fitness lacking

Unfortunately, but unsurprisingly, Mark lost to Nadal today 4-6, 4-6, . Nadal just had the goods and showed why he’s ranked 2nd – there wasn’t a shot he was missing. Now though Nadal played really well, Mark also played at a level better than I think we’ve seen so far this year and had he drawn someone other than Nadal he might have advanced. McEnroe was commentating for the match and repeated something we’ve all heard before – if Mark really wants to make it back to the top he needs to improve just one thing – his fitness. It was especially obvious against such an quick and agile player as Nadal, but Mark hasn’t really improved that part of his game. He’d have a much easier time if his overall fitness and quickness were better.
