Will we see Mark in Melbourne? Tennis Australia’s team playoffs for wildcards into the Australian Open begins next week. As of right now Mark has not entered, but there is a potential for a last minute entry.
Mark played this week at the AEGON Masters Champion Series event. His first match on Dec 1st against Rusedski showed a slimmed down Mark looking in better shape than we’ve seen recently. He won the matcch 6-4, 6-7 (4-7), 10-3 and showed some fighting spirit at tough points. Unfortunately his next match against Edberg did not go nearly so well with a 4-6, 2-6 loss. Last night he played El Aynaoui lost again 6-3 5-7 6-10. For those who miss seeing Mark on their tvs, check out this BBC Video Interview.
