Karlovic v Popp is more likely

lol Auscon, same here. A final would be great though. It would be great if it has to be played on a monday or Tuesday as well so the rich Pommies don't get to go to it. They are such a boring apathetic lot. Give me a stadium full of ferals any day.!

Re: Wimbledon Final - Hewitt vs Philippoussis

Would be cool.. but too many hurdles (if you even wanna call Fed a hurdle, I think he's more like a concrete wall nobody's gonna get past/through ) for both guys.. I wouldn't mind seeing an all Aussie final, but I doubt it'll happen

~* Juan Carlos Ferrero *~

Also good luck to:
Lleyton * Marat * Todd R * Thierry * Mario * ToJo * Janko * Andrei * Seb * Nono * Misha * Igor * Fab * Kirill * Frank Dancevic

There certainly don't appear to be many cracks in that concrete wall.

Re: Wimbledon Final - Hewitt vs Philippoussis

I actually think Mark could make the finals again this year. I don't know his record with Henman but I think he or Tim could take out Andy.

just went through the rundown on atp.com


4-2 Philippoussis v Henman

Henman won the last one in 2002, and the one before that was when Mark knocked Tim out in the round of 16 at Wimbledon 00

Philippoussis v Roddick

Never played eachother....so it'd be an interesting match if they met


3-1 Henman v Roddick

Henman won both of their last 2 encounters in 04 and 03 respectively

WyveN mate~o0o~ , you are such a comedian!

@ That's right Karlovic with zero career titles & Popp with zero career titles have more chance of making the Wimbledon Finals than Hewitt with 21-titles & 02 Wimbledon Champion or Philippoussis with 10-titles & 03 Wimbledon Finalist !

If you could get a Ladbrokes to give you the Odds of a Karlovic v Popp Final & lay $1000 on it~~ & it comes true , you'll be an overnight millionaire !

Re: Wimbledon Final - Hewitt vs Philippoussis

What a nightmare final that would be, but it could come true if Henman doesn't step up his form massively from his first week level.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Wimbledon Final - Hewitt vs Philippoussis

I wouldn't mind that result, although I'd be very impressed if Philippoussis actually managed to beat Hewitt in a match that long and close.

Re: Wimbledon Final - Hewitt vs Philippoussis

What, no 21-19 final set? Now that would be dissapointing.

You're a genious 'azza'; great minds think alike ! Even though Hewitt is clearly my favourite player i wouldn't mind Philippoussis beating him in the Final; afterall Hewitt already has 2-Slam Wins from 2-Finals whereas as unlucky Poo Poo Scud has zero from 2-Slam Final appearances ! Also Scud was on the receiving end of Rafter's win at 98 USO; it must have been tough for Mark~ especially seeing Tony Roche barracking for Rafter, despite that fact he should have been neutral with his role then as Davis Cup Captain !

Philippoussis deserves a biggie & Wimbledon 04 would be a dream come true; especially sweet after all the tough press he received from Pat Cash & Co. after AO/Davis Cup this year !

That must be the first time azza's ever been called a genius on here.
