Mark Philippoussis defeats Karol Beck 7-5, 6-4, 6-2

Turned up his serving with 12 aces in the last two sets and broke Beck's rather weak serve quite a few times even with his poor returning game. Good work Flip!

Flip was really shaky in the beginning but he recovered.

Re: Mark Philippoussis defeats Karol Beck 7-5, 6-4, 6-2

Great result!

First set was weird, Mark was more comfy breaking Beck than holding his serve

I hoped he'd win, but didnt think he'd be able to get through in straights (let alone without having to play any tb's!)

Absolute amazing power from Flipper...the commentators said he's never seen such a display of power and brutality, even from Sampras in his prime. Federer, Roddick, Hewitt beware!

Didn't see the match but the stats look alarming for us Safin fans...

Re: Mark Philippoussis defeats Karol Beck 7-5, 6-4, 6-2

Congrats Scud!
A really overall good match, especially how he managed to stay in the first set despite Beck seemed to have the edge in the returning games as he returned Mark's serve pretty well and his first serve points won percentage was only about 50% I guess.

Strong serves, determined and offensive play, good volleys.... That's how grasscourt tennis has to be celebrated and exercised I didn't see it completely, but what I saw was very entertaining for me!

Bad luck for Beck that he didn't get a more ordinary first round match up. For my taste he was beaten under value today and couldn't show that he was a better player than the bare scoreline would suggest.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Mark's stats are very, very similar to Marat's today.
