Re: Mark "The Scud" cheering thread!!

An absolute nightmare draw for mark... but i guess we should've expected it. If mark plays solid he shoud beat Mathieu... im not going to think beyond this match...

GO MARK!!!!!

Re: Mark "The Scud" cheering thread!!

Re: Mark "The Scud" cheering thread!!

no rafa pulled out of the match with a slight foot injury.. i have no idea who or even if mark played matches this week...i think he made big error not playing Ordina. But hopefully he's had heaps of good practice sessions with other players.

Re: Mark "The Scud" cheering thread!!

Hmm I dunno.. Paul Henri mathieu is really tough, hes bein thrown straight into it, I dont think hes gonna do too well this year, his preparation hasnt been good enough for him to be confident enough to play such a big match so soon (I mean I guess I coulda played Federer first round lol).

Re: Mark "The Scud" cheering thread!!

absurd fourth set tiebreak but I'm glad he got through.
I'd say 'that will shut some people up', but Mark will have to win the title before that can happen.

He plays Max next I like Max so it'll be a pleasant change to see someone else I like, on the television.

Re: Mark "The Scud" cheering thread!!

match fitness... mark is fit, but not match fit. He looked a little flat yesterday. but good news is, his attitude is definately in the right place.

"I'm happy, obviously I'm disappointed at the result, but I've got to look at the bigger picture - I'm healthy, I feel like I'm back, and now I've just got to go out there and play as many tournaments as I can," Philippoussis said.

"This is no time to be fussy, it's just a time to get out there and, no matter what tournament it is, just go out there and play it."

Philippoussis did not rule out representing Australia in Davis Cup if called upon.

"When that time comes, then it comes, I'll deal with that, but I'm looking forward to playing no matter what it is," he said.

"My mind's in the right place, my heart's in the right place, and I'm just enjoying it again."

Exactly what needs to be heard, um peter flemming?? Frazier?? I dunno whoever that Davis cup coach is, wants Mark, but they want to see how he does over the next few months hes "the perennial x factor for australia" thats what they all say, its true, hewitt might be a solid rock but mark is a guy who can turn it all around if hes just inspired. If mark is gonna make a positive turn/comeback for his career (his attitude has already made a great turn around) itll be Davis cup, I mean if he did well at Wimbledon itd be great but training sessions are so tough in Davis cup and you never ask anymore of yourself than you do in Davis cup, and we all know how its kickstarted the careers of the croatian team in a big way. Itd be better if they were playing in australia though so that the Aussie crowd could get behind him if hes picked and he should be since his results are better than those of Luckzak and even Guccione.
