Re: Marcos Daniel

Marcos is almost there ... but he knows there's one more match left before he makes it into RG's main draw: http://www2.uol.com.br/tenisbrasil/d...t138u40619.htm (article in Portuguese).

Hopefully he won't have to play Rafa in the 1st round.

Unhappy Re: Marcos Daniel

Turns out he's playing Rafa indeed. Goodbye hope. Welcome depression.

Marcos Daniel, 29 years-old, world ranked 96: Spiritually inspired

Like many Brazilians, Marcos Daniel first dreamed of becoming a footballer. He and his father were regulars on the pitches in Rio Grande do Sul until a serious knee injury put paid to his future as a footballer. But tennis soon filled the void: "I first picked up a racket when I was 12, and quickly came to love the sport. Even when my friends were going to the beach I would stay behind and practice," remembers Daniel.

By the time he turned 19, Marcos had turned professional and signed up with a sponsor. But then a slipped disc struck a terrible blow to his progress. For four years he was virtually unable to move, and the injury nearly pushed him to end to his budding career. Then, on the long road to recovery Daniel found God. He became an Evangelist and joined the Atletas de Cristo (‘‘Athletes of Christ’’) association, alongside the footballer Kakà. "It is thanks to God that I didn’t give up,’’ he says. ‘‘He helped me to keep going and get out of the dark hole I was in. My family were also there for me. I owe them a lot." Since then, "el padre", as he is known by his friends on the circuit, has forged a respectable career for himself, the highlight being an ATP ranking of No60 in September 2008.

Today, Marcos Daniel is ranked world No96 and eager to make up for lost time. At nearly 30 years of age, he feels he still has progress to make. After getting through the qualifying rounds, Larri Passos’ ex-pupil drew the short straw and faces Rafael Nadal in the first round. Not that he is overawed. “I’m really excited about the match! Facing the King of Clay on Centre Court at Roland Garros – that’s great, isn’t it? And you never know… Nothing’s impossible.”

Re: Marcos Daniel

Andreas Beck, Marcos Daniel advance to Swiss Open semifinals


GSTAAD, Switzerland — Andreas Beck of Germany reached his first ATP semifinal Friday, defeating Victor Crivoi of Romania 6-4, 7-6 (5) at the Swiss Open.

Beck will meet Marcos Daniel of Brazil in the last four, ensuring one will play in his first career final.

The 73rd-ranked Daniel defeated Florent Serra of France 6-4, 7-6 (1) in the quarter-finals.

Beck, ranked a career-high 51st, proved tougher than Crivoi on the big points as both struggled to land barely half of their first serves.

Re: Marcos Daniel

Marcos is now ranked no. 90 in the world, after having won the Blumenau challenger and making the semis in Curitiba, both in Brazil. He hasn't done to well on ATP tour events, but hopefully that is something that changes for Marcos.

Marcos is in preparations to play Davis Cup this week with Bellucci. Then he will play the Zagreb challenger, and attempt to once again qualify for RG. Lets hope for the best for Marcos during this important period of his season.
