Thanks for the pic, Sherri.
And to think he played a reasonably close match against Delpo only four months ago! It's amazing how much match fitness can be lost in such a relatively short time. If Marat intends to play a lot of seniors events, he'll no doubt see the need to maintain his fitness at a level at which he can compete and not disgrace himself. I guess this loss is either a rude awakening or par for the course - Courier lost to Wilander yesterday, and I don't think anyone saw that coming either!
From yesterday's match, Rio Champions website (plus one from Daylife)
