Mardy beating Tommy in the dead rubber is still significant. For one thing, the final score reads as 3-2 Spain and not 4-1, which is an excellent showing for the US on their worst surface.
And two, it gives Mardy some confidence to know that he can play and win on clay.
I'm so glad Todd Martin will be coaching Mardy. A huge improvement over Kelly, imo. I can't wait to see how Mardy's results will be in 2005 as a result.
Here are some more pics of Mardy. The first one is from his dead rubber match with Tommy.
