Mark was just interviewed on radio and praise the lord he has been training with John McEnro for the past few days. Doing gym work on the legs and hitting the court everyday. Mark sounded good, and determined to get in shape for next year. He's been working his butt off, and will return home in CA and continue to train with marine fitness guru Markus Heon. This is such great news and to clear some things up about the whole delta / paris hilton love saga. Here is a summary of the interview... i must admit i feel horrible for jumping to conclusions and bagging mark out for reasons that werent even justified. After listening to mark this morning im am once again reminded of why i love him so much!

Basically in summary...

mark said that both he and delta talked about things 2 weeks ago and both agreed it would be best if they broke up because of their careers. Mark was lovely and said delta is young and has such a big career ahead of her, he knows she's only going to get bigger and bigger and he's had such a bad year that he really needed to get his career together. He said it was unfortunate timing because of the single being released but both he and delta needed to be honest with themselves and they would be only lying to themselves and the public if they continued to say everything was perfect when it wasnt.

Alan brought up all the rumors saying he is a cheat and cad. (this is where you started to hear the strain in marks voice) Mark said several times how hurtful and hard it is to deal with that sort of negativity. It hard enough playing tennis when you fit and healthy but to cope with everything when your not is extremly difficult. He said he didnt cheat. Mark made a good comment and said why would he end a relationship and then get involved in a new one straight away??!! it was ridiculous, he just wants to foucus on his tennis. He said the whole paris rumor started when he went to a party in las vagas, i think it was nicky hiltons birthday?? and he assumed some ppl saw them togther and mark said whenever he is seen with other woman the media always assume that he's "with her".. alan asked about paris saying she was in love with him and that mark said delta was boring. Mark said he spoke to paris and asked her if those things were true, they arent paris didnt say that, and mark said delta is certainly not boring!

mark then went on to say how at the start he was critisied for maybe focussing too much attention on his personal life and not tennis. Now he's made the hard decision to end a relationship to focus on his tennis ppl are angry about that. Mark got really emotional and said no matter what he does people have an issue with it and its been like that for ten years. He said he's not going to go on camera and agrue back with words to those like pat cash who put him down. he is going to try and shut them up with his tennis and win tournaments.

he talked a little about being with John McEnroe and how he has respect for him as a player and commentator. he is really enjoying the training, hes in the gym everyday working on his legs, basically working his butt off for next year and hopes he can prove people wrong.

Well I hope for Mark's sake this is all true and that he really does come back next year as good as new.

Joachim Johansson is on the verge of making it to the top ten and Mark is like 5 times more talented than him, I really hope he is working on his fitness, he could do great next year.
