Marcus played soccer along with tennis as a youngster and made the NZ soccer team at 14.
He had to choose between tennis and soccer at 15 as both sports required more than half of his attention. He chose tennis for it's gladiatorial style.
Marcus has represented NZ and won national titles at all age-groups and now represents NZ in the Davis Cup team.
He is the current NZ men's singles champion and is the first Kiwi in over a decade to win an ATP international tennis event.
All of this and he's still only 20 years old!
