‘Scud’ to make his mark here
THE NATION:
Published on Nov 26, 2003

[TENNIS] Big serving Australian Mark Phillippoussis is the latest star to confirm for December’s Paradorn Super Tour, which takes place in three cities around the country.

Known as the ‘Scud” because of his powerful serves, the world No 9 will join Thai ace Paradorn Srichaphan, reigning Thailand Open champion Taylor Dent of the US and former world No 1 Marcelo Rios of Chile in the exhibition tournament from December 1621.

According to organisers BECTero, the tour will start in Paradorn’s home town Khon Kaen then move to Chiang Mai and end in Phuket.

Thailand’s No 1 women’s player Tamarine Tanasugarn will be invited to play in a mixed doubles match. BECTero will invite a top 100 player to play with her.

According to the news Marat is now in China and the players who has confirmed to play in " 2003 Paradorn Super Tour " are Scud, Rios and Dent.

I will have chance to meet Marat in Hopman Cup next year. Anyway I will be happy to meet him in Thailand if he comes.

Re: " 2003 Paradorn Super Tour "

I wish Paradorn would stop playing exhibitions at the end of his already long seasons and just rest and rejuvenate his body. Also, I think it wouldn't hurt if Paradorn gave something back to the Thai community as far as a charitable organization or something comparable.

Re: " 2003 Paradorn Super Tour "

well, I think in "his" opinion exhibition match is something he can give back to the community. He wants little kids to come and play tennis just like him. BUT he may forget that it's not for free. At least tennis fans have to buy tickets. And most people in the country are so poor. If he wants to continue the supertour, it should be some kind of charity match. Or should he establish a non-profit organization for poor kids who want to become pro player instead.

In the past when he wasn't this famous, local tennis amateurs usually have a chance to practice or to be trained with him. And he enjoys it. But now it's almost no chance for them. His family opened tennis school and the SRICHAPHAN tennis court but I don't think students would have a chance to practice with Paradorn or even his brothers.
So at the end of season he can take a rest and should give some kind of tennis clinic to kids. That's my suggestion.
