Flanagan def. Philippoussis!!!

Ian Flanagan, the British no. ? at 900 in the world has just beaten Australia's second best player 7/6(2) 7/6(3). Flanagan.

This happens a day after Jamie "Golam" Delgado edged out Taylor Dent!

British players!!!

Re: Flanagan def. Philippoussis!!!

looks like the Brits are proving themselves just in time for Wimbledon. Maybe there will be a few more suprises at Wimbledon?

Well done to Flanagan but Mark P is in big trouble. Has he won a first round match since AO?

Yeah 1 or 2 - however many he won at the World Team Cup. Flanagan played well though but Flip could have won - he shanked quite a lot of shots.

Re: Flanagan def. Philippoussis!!!

Seems that even I could beat Philippoussis these days, grr

My German guys are like the cast of the Wizard of Oz:

Rainer = Lion
Kiwi = Scarecrow
Tommy = Tin Man
Flo = Dorothy

...but I still love 'em

Yeah true but it all contributes to his confidence or lack of it...he is going to take one hell of a dive after Wimby - similar to Costa and Verkerk I fear.

Re: Flanagan def. Philippoussis!!!

hate to take anything away from the Brit's awesome win, but this match just goes to show you how much Mark is sucking this year. But still a win is a win, and good on Flanagan

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas

Re: Flanagan def. Philippoussis!!!

* There are only 2-choices for Mark Poo Poo; if he's not commited to the game of tennis at ripe old age of 27* then he may as well quite!!! Otherwise get your shit together man & take this profession seriously~ then we all know he can win tournaments!

I never liked what Cash said at AO~ BUT since then it seems like Mark has lived up to his reputation of being lazy & lacking spirit!

Re: Flanagan def. Philippoussis!!!

I dont think these big, tough servers will be having these ridiculous exits when it matters most!

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??
