January Updates

January 29, 2009: Mark and Henri played yesterday against Bahrami and Fitzgerald. They retired at 3-4 in the first set, but no reason has been listed as to why. They are scheduled to play Arthurs & Cash next.

January 26, 2009: Mark and Henri moved on in the Legends event defeating Wilander and Nystrom 6-7 (8-6), 6-3, [10-5].

January 25, 2009: Sometimes it’s really nice to be wrong. Today Mark and Henri defeated Woodbridge and Woodforde in a close match 4-6 7-6(4) [10-6]. Tomorrow they play Wilander and Nystrom in the second round.

January 24, 2009: A late update here, but Mark did play in the World Tennis Challenge in adelaide on the 14th. He lost 2-6, 3-6 to Taylor Dent. It wasn’t a great showing by any means, but the positive sign is that his heavily taped knees survived the match. Mark starts his play at the Legends event at the Australian Open tomorrow and he has quite the challenge ahead. He and partner Henri Leconte play the famous Woodies in the first round. Needless to say I don’t expect them to advance, but a nice showing would be good.
