To the 'forgotten' Aussie Tennis Professional who I believe has a better win/ loss ratio than any other male Australian Tennis Professional this year. A great win over Kyrgios in Kuala Lumpur this week. Remember Marinko was the one who made himself 'unavailable' for Davis Cup duties in Cottesloe earlier this month. As per usual I had a theory on this one.
He was never going to gain a spot over Kyrgios or Hewitt so why would he have made himself available, practised on the turf that is played on for around 4 weeks each year then be left out in favour of the above mentioned ?
Nope this guy is all class, a man who knows which side his bread is buttered on and a man who has a crystal ball plus a smart coach in Woodforde who no doubt knew the Davis Cup selections ahead of the official draw.
Marinko did some training instead, looks like it paid off, a moral victory, good lad......
