Judging by the form he showed at Queen's, he might as well enter Wimbly's main draw as a qualifier.

Philippoussis' dream wild card on Wimbly:REJECTED >> ACCEPTED

What a pity for this guy.
http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/news?slu...ters&type=lgns

All England Club denied his request for a WC on grass GS. He battled some injuries problem so this year he just won a few matches. Then he is about to get cracking up the good matches at Queens- beating Grosjean tightly but couldn't pass Gonzo.

His results this year so far force him to take another way through the quallies.
Anyway, for Mark not for keep waiting for remaining WC and set up himself to face the quallies.
I know this is the decision by the committee of All England Club, but should be more softer considering what he has done in 2003 when he skimmed until the final and i wonder who the the lucky players finally get all those WC.

any thoughts?

Re: Philippoussis' dream to get wild card on Wimbly:REJECTED

The best decision Wimbledon Committee has made in years. Just because Flip wins 2 matches at Queen's doesn't make his suspect form and attitude alright.

Makes me wonder who the other 4 WC go to though. Fish should get 1 if he needs it.

I think it's good that Flip is fine with qualifying. He needs the matches and handing him all these WCs really doesn't help him. he needs the matches and he needs to earn it and I hope he can qualify and do well.

Re: Philippoussis' dream to get wild card on Wimbly:REJECTED

he got so many wc, even at wimbledon, at some point you have to start to deserve them

Former great players have no right on a WC, Enquist was in a Q for a Slam as well

Good - how many wildcards does Mark need anyway? He should stop trying to play at this level and go down and work his way back up the hard way instead of trying to play at a level that won't allow him to get the wins

Wildcards should be for young players with talent, not for some old players that can't reach the main draw!
