I got into Montreal at the weekend, ready for the Rogers Cup.
I’m very happy Man Utd won on Sunday. I saw the match until the 78th minute and then had to go practise. Loved the second goal scored by Nani. Man City defence lost the ball there for some seconds...Just loved it :-)
I had an ok week last week in Washington. The day which I played six sets was a very positive day; it will help me throughout the summer mentally and physically. I am feeling ready for a big fight this week in Montreal. I have a very tough first round against John Isner, who’s been in great form lately. I just need to stay focussed and keep on fighting and the results will come...
Score is wrong - 3-6 1-0(*) - Markos is leading 1-0 on the second and Isner to serve
actually, that's wrong too.
i watched the match live stream and at 1-0 Marcos called for a trainer to receive a courtside massage to the back. Isner looked unhappy with the delay... after 10 minutes delay, play resumed and at 2-1 ( or, 2-2 don't remember well ) play suspended due to rain. Marcos looked happy with himself, he managed to hold his serve in the second set...
In a tough first-round assignment, Marcos was beaten 6-3, 6-4 by big-serving American John Isner at the Rogers Cup on Wednesday in Montreal.
Play had been halted due to rain that did not desist on Tuesday, and resumed Wednesday in the early stages of the second set. The in-form Isner, who had won 11 of his past 13 matches coming into the Rogers Cup, broke Marcos in the seventh game and from there served out victory in 73 minutes.
Marcos will next compete at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati, another ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament beginning Monday, 15 August.
“The match against Isner did not go the way I wanted,” said Marcos. “I lost concentration twice to get broken and you cannot afford that with him.” “I’m heading to Cincy now...I have 2 -3 days to get ready for the next one.”
