Marcos Faces Thiem Test At Wimbledon

Sunday, 01 July, 2018

The time has arrived. The tennis world has descended on the All England Club in London for the Wimbledon Championships.


Marcos will make his 13th appearance at the prestigious grass-court Grand Slam, looking replicate the magic from his memorable semi-final run back in 2006. Marcos, who claimed his 20th match win at the tournament last year, returns to one of his favourite events of the year.


A first-round blockbuster against seventh seed Dominic Thiem awaits. It will be their first head-to-head meeting.


Also in Marcos' section of the draw are Spanish veterans Fernando Verdasco and David Ferrer and rising stars Karen Khachanov and Frances Tiafoe. Should he defeat Thiem, a second-round clash against either Ferrer or Khachanov awaits, with Verdasco or Tiafoe potentially looming in the third round. Former champion and World No. 1 Novak Djokovic is a potential Round of 16 opponent.


Marcos is hoping for a reversal of fortunes after an opening-round defeat to Blaz Kavcic on the grass of Antalya this week. He is in search of his first victory since reaching the semi-finals of the ATP Challenger Tour event in St. Brieuc, France, in March.
