Please let us know the minute there is info about his first tournament back..?
He's made it clear he wants to play Wimbledon. He must have a US Challenger in his sights in the coming months.

Well get excited boys and girls, Mark just tweeted back to the tweet I sent him:

@MPhilippoussis Mark are you going to be playing any ATP tournaments or challengers in the coming months? Would luv to see you at Wimbledon.

@MatchuTweet Yes I will be playing some ATP events soon but not sure which ones, looking at the calendar now.

My guess would be some American ATPs but it is nice to finally have confirmation that he will be back on the tour soon.

If we're to look at actual ATP tour events on North American hardcourts before Wimbledon, Delray Beach is the only one that seems possible. There is one wildcard place remaining (Blake and Del Potro have the others). After that, the next tour events (outside of Masters) move onto clay, which I don't think Mark would be keen on. I'd assume it's either Delray or challengers.

Looking further forward to grass, I think he could get wildcards at Eastbourne and Newport.

Is he insane? He can't just go straight into ATP events!
I'd even suggest starting with a Futures event, but atleast commit to 3 Challenger events before playing ATP Mark!
