Mark has a distinguished record on the singles court, reaching the final of the US Open in 1998, where he lost to Pat Rafter. In 1999 he moved inside the top 10 for the first time and helped Australia to win the Davis Cup final with a steely performance on clay in Nice.

In 2003 he reached the final of Wimbledon, losing to Roger Federer. He also pulled off a miraculous five-set win against world No.3 Juan Carlos Ferrero to seal Australia’s victory over Spain in that year’s Davis Cup final. In 2006, after further injury woes, Mark again proved his credentials, winning his eleventh ATP Tour title on grass in Newport.

He has represented Australia three times at the Olympic Games, in Atlanta (1996), Sydney (2000) and Athens (2004).
