I got the quotes from a news article....

Quote:
At an event where all seeds received byes, slumping Australian Mark Philippoussis, suffering with chills and a fever, was bundled out by German Florian Mayer 6-4, 6-3.

The number 165-ranked Philippoussis, Wimbledon finalist just three years ago, was unable to capitalize after going up a break with points for 4-0 in the second set against his number 65 opponent.

Swirling wind from the approaching weather didn't help the 29- year-old's game.

"It was a tough day out there, I don't want to make excuses, but I was getting a fever last night. I had chills," Philippoussis said.

"I had my chances, but he got on a roll. He's a strong player but very unorthodox. He disguises his backhand well. He was better on the day. I don't want to take anything away from him."
but if you go to marks official fansite message board: http://com2.runboard.com/bscudcentral.fmainchat

all the latest on mark is posted there. Nick Philippoussis also visists and posts under the name Nflip... he posted today because he was upset about an aussie article that made up some bullshit about mark not playing davis cup because of money. Nick also explained the loss and said mark had the worst night before the Mayer match becuase he was ill, and his energy levels dropped as the match went on.

Geez, I thought at least the Aussies were better than others but ... nothing new in this world ... the Russian papers writing total rubbish about Marat for example are sooooo frustrating.

Good luck against grandpa Davide!

Re: Mark "The Scud" cheering thread!!

.... painful match.. mark had his chances, was up a break in the 1st set... then had chances in the 2nd but his serve let him down. i think the more matches he plays the better he will get. He seems to be in great shape and has a strong desire to play so im sure we will see mark win some big matches.
