Marcos and Croatia's Borna Coric explored some Sichuan culinary treats on Monday, during time out from the Chengdu Open. The duo, closely guided by Nelson Ong, the Executive Chef at the St. Regis Chengdu, tried their hands at making traditional Chinese meat dumplings.
“At the beginning it was tough,” Marcos said. “I didn’t realise you needed to put some water so that the dough sticks together, but once the chef helped us out and told us his little secrets it became easier. Personally, I like trying different kinds of food so it’s a pleasure to be here cooking something different. I enjoyed my time here. I love this tournament actually, I like the people that organise it - they provide very good facilities for the players and do everything for us.”
Marcos opens his Chengdu Open campaign against Canada’s Vasek Pospisil on Tuesday.
