Mark has begun speaking to the press again and has been speaking about his return to tennis. The good news is the knee is at 100%, the back problems are what’s been holding him back and right now that’s about 70% back to normal. He’s playing the over 30s event to judge his fitness and test the knee and back out. He hopes to play a few lesser events this fall and then return to the ATP main ciruit for the 2008 season – hopefully with an Australian Open wildcard. He’s been working hard in the gymn wil Gil and practicing with Andre in Vegas and says that every day things are going better.
