Awesome. Watching Marinks live and he takes first game.
What a great experience for Marinko, who never played at Wimbledon as a Junior. Fantastic for him.
What a clay court grind - 20 shot rally.
Drops serve but breaks back immediately with some great play, level at 2-2.
Noohhh. Drops serve again, now 2-4 down. MMM's drop shots woeful. Holds for 3-4.
Impressive, MMM matching Chela from the back of the court most of the time.
Too many errors for MMM, two set points to Chela at 3-5, 15-40 on MMM's serve... and he saves both to get to deuce, Ad and holds for 4-5. Go Marinks.
MMM saves 1 set point with a booming cross-court 4hand, but Chela prevails to take 1st set 6-4.
Off to bed 4me.
