Not a good first set for Marinko, serving at 46% and losing serve twice, to drop the set 26. Much better serving in the second set, at 70%, and went all the way to the tie-break, MMM saving two set points before losing the tb 8-10 and going down in straight sets to Jesse Levine. A match he could have won.
Marinko plays to his seeding (so far), knocking off Tobias Kamke 63 16 60.
A ladies match scoreline but a good result for MMM against a very solid player.
Takes on the winner of the match between No.1 seed Benoit Paire and Michael Russell.
Russell 5-4, up a break, in the 1st set but I'd tip Paire to win. A winnable match up for Marinko who ever he plays.
Go the MMM.
