Mark turns down US Open wildcard

While there’s still no official word on why Mark isn’t playing, USA Network addressed the question “Where is Mark?” during today’s broadcast. While they didn’t have an answer, they did report that Mark was offered a wildcard spot for the US Open and turned it down. A shockingly good offer, yet still no Mark on court. What we can expect from Mark when he turns down a Grand Slam wildcard remains to be seen. Australian Tennis also addresses a similar question and features Mark on the cover of the September issue.

Where’s Mark?

Playing where’s Mark is no-where near as fun as finding Waldo. It’s as if since the end of Age of Love Mark has dropped off the planet. He didn’t try to qualify Cincinnati or New Haven, nor did he play in any of this week’s challengers. There’s been no word from Mark of his agent as to when or where he might next appear on the court. Not a very hopeful sign for Mark’s future tennis career.
