I hope Marcos can get his earlier season form back. And start winning some back to back Matches again now that he will be on grass instead of clay.

Marcos played 9 matches (ATP + Davis Cup) on grass within last year with 7 wins and 2 losses.

His best performance was on Jul 4 2005 at Nottingham where he reached semi finals but he retired.

Some people believe that since grass surface is a fast surface, Marcos will perform better than the clay surface. Most grass players prefer short rallies by finishing the point by net approach. I believe that the grass surface suits more to Marcos playing style.

I hope so what worries me is that his style is a basliner rather than a vollyer but I'm hoping his speed will help.....Grass is not that stressful on the body as the other surfaces.....

Yes that’s true. Marcos is not so good from the net but hopefully he will take advantage of his powerful forehand to make winners.
