Anthony Marino

Anthony's nickname is the Matrix. I think of him as more of a Beast. He is left handed, and has the fastest LWU in the game. He once beat me in a challenge match 16-0. I think some people made a big deal about it or thought it would get me down or something. Quite the contrary. I was proud of him for finishing the job, I personally would've let up or felt bad. I know some players who would take a huge mental hit by getting crushed so badly. For me, it's the real close ones or the ones you should win that hurt. If I get crushed, what's the difference if I win 2-5 token games? If my skill level isn't good enough to win, then what does it matter how many games I win?

Back to Mr. Marino. I've only had the chance to face Anthony in doubles the past few years, and I have to say that I am now easily holding my own against him. He can still score, but I am getting some lockdowns finally. And he can't really stop my office at all. If Anthony gets hot, he is one of the players who is 50-50 against Danny. He has all the tools to beat everyone else except for maybe Ehab, who can read him a little better and also score on him. Not sure which Anthony we'll see at the US Open, hope he is in practice.
