Nice use of the English language there by Philippoussis :confused: He has every right to complain to the umpire but using such language is simply pathetic!

Well Mark is angry. that's why he use those words, you can't help it when there is an andrenaline rush, still, it is not appropriate but toally understandable.

I hoep Mark wins, Henmania is growing as far as I can see, and soon my head will explode.

I’m only guessing here on which choice words Mark decided to use :D
Wish I’d seen what happened since I keep dashing from the office to see what's happening.
I was only aware of ‘something’ when the commentator ‘apologised’ for the broadcasted language. How very PC/BBC of him *cough*

There were a few 'Fs' by Philippoussis and also he just hit the ball into the crowd and nearly had a ball abuse warning but the umpire sensibly didn't give him one as he did apologise straight away.

I get the feeing though that the crowd are confused as they are cheering Henman faults thinking they are aces :o

Mark was so baaaaaaaaaaaaaad... :( horrible.. certainly the first 2 sets.. unbelievably bad! I like Mark a lot but he really didn't deserve to win. Those first two sets were just pathetic, like he never hit a volley in his entire life! The only thing that kept him from losing 6-1 6-1 6-1 was his serve.
Credit to Henman, for doing what he was supposed to do, he played a great match (or at least it looked good in comparison to Mark ;) :p), certainly the last tiebreak was one of the better parts of the match. Hope Henman goes on to win the thing, so that the Brits finally get off his back...

Does the same apply to the Philippoussis serve which was called in, when in fact it was out, that would have led to him being break point down? It just so happened that that was the service game of Mark's which immediately preceded the one featuring the bad call in his disfavour. That doesn't make it even, but shows that both players were at the receiving end of bad line calling.

And could Henman have choked any more to let Mark back in the 4th set? The Brit played a disgracefully piss-poor set to finish, and the Australian couldn't take it. That says a lot about how badly he was playing himself.
