SLAM Sports had this to say:
Marach, a 25-year-old Austrian, planned to play in qualifying matches for the French Open in Paris this week, but slipped into the main draw after others pulled out. The 97th-ranked Marach then received a wild card for Poertschach and dominated No. 71-ranked Spadea with his strong service.
"I am relieved to finally be in the top 100," Marach said. "I tried hard to get there, and now it makes me feel comfortable on the court. I could take on Spadea without pressure."
