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.!

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

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

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

Karlovic v Popp is more likely
:worship: :worship: :worship: :D ;) :p !!!
WyveN mate~o0o~ :cool: , 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 :angel: !

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

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.

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.

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

You're a genious 'azza'; great minds think alike :angel: ! 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 :sad: ! 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 :sad: !

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. :devil: after AO/Davis Cup this year :eek: !

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

Philippoussis deserves a lot of criticism for the marked lack of effort he's put into much of his career, especially when you consider his talent/dedication ratio vis a vis that of Hewitt's.

Agree Baseliner. I support Mark in a patriotic sense (since I'm Australian), but I don't really feel that he has given himself the best opportunities to win slams. So in a way I think its fitting that he hasn't.

Hewitt vs Phili?? lol :lol: tell us another joke hehe... j/k I'm just kidding off course. Well, IMHO just one of these guys will going to face the final.

bye bye

That ain't gonna happen. I doubt that very much. I don't think either one will get to the semis too.

That final is only possible if Roger , Andy and Tim are getting injured before playing any of the matches.

:) Nice thought. And maybe we could persuade them to hold it at 10am so it's at a decent time for Aussie viewers too ;)
