Marcus Daniell (born 9 November 1989) is a professional tennis player from rural Wairarapa in New Zealand.[1]

Tennis career[edit]

While mainly playing in futures events, Daniell received a doubles wild card entry to play in the 2010 Heineken Open, an ATP 250 event in his home country of New Zealand. With new doubles partner, Horia Tecău, they had an improbable run to the finals of the event. The pair first dispatched fellow New Zealanders the Statham brothers, 6-3, 6-2. Daniell and Tecău then won a three set showdown against the third seeded Spaniards Tommy Robredo and Marcel Granollers, 3-6. 7-6(5), 10-8. In the semifinal match Daniell and Tecău faced Johan Brunström and Jean-Julien Rojer who had defeated grand slam winners Lukáš Dlouhý and Leander Paes. Daniell and Tecău prevailed 3-6, 7-6(4), 10-8 to set up a final with Brazilians Marcelo Melo and Bruno Soares. In the championship match, Daniell and Tecău won against the Brazilians 7-5, 6-4, each player winning their first ATP World Tour title.[2]

Daniell was to represent New Zealand in both the singles and the doubles, paired with Rubin Statham, at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.[3] However, he had to withdraw due to an ongoing back injury, leaving Statham to compete in the singles alone.[4]
