He is the captain of the Slovak Davis Cup team and president in a tennis club. We don't see each other much. We talked recently about my coach change" said younger Mecir, who is appearing in Status Athens Open 2010 making the comeback after a month away with injury. "My goal is to qualify to the Main Draw and then I will see what is the best I can do.." he stated.
