Mark is a right handed, 16 year old originally from Perth, however he enjoyed a brief stint in the Cash-Hopper Tennis Academy in Queensland before permanently relocating to Melbourne. At 193cm, his serve is a huge weapon, as is his forehand, and at only 16 and still developing, these strengths are bound to get even stronger. His junior achievements include winning the 2007 Junior Davis Cup with Bernard Tomic, aswell as winning numerous Junior titles, including 2005 ITF's in France and Belgium, aswell as the 16's Australian Claycourts in 2006. He is currently ranked #38 on the Junior world rankings, making him the secondest highest Australian, after Tomic.
He has recently attempted to break onto the main tour, and is still attempting to win his first maindraw match although his efforts have been promising. In his first attempt, he qualifed for the maindraw in a $15K ITF event in Australia in late October, where he lost in the first round to Marinko Matesevic in two tight sets 7-6 6-3. In 2008, he was awarded a WC into another $15K event in Australia where he drew #1 seed Nathan Healey in the first round, where he lost in another tight two setter 6-4 6-4. His goals for the year include gaining an ATP point/ranking, while still cutting an imposing figure on the junior circuit.
