I saw most of the match on TV and I agree with what you say. Marin was unlucky to run into Nole so early in the tournament. He played pretty well overall, and has nothing to be ashamed of.
definately nothing to be ashamed of! he can now use this experience of playing a top 3 player to help him in his future tournaments.
i was annoyed that eurosport decided to show the football replay instead of the live tennis but i luckily found a site that showed it live til eurosport decided to show it.
