Re: Marks progress?
This article tells you all you need to know about how seriously the Scud is taking his comeback. He'd rather wait til late October to play has-beens for a fat cheque than make a proper comeback against serious players. I used to be a huge fan of his...now it's like watching someone make a last grab for cash before slipping off the face of the earth. RIP Scud.
Australia's Mark Philippoussis, a former US Open and Wimbledon runner-up, will make his return from right knee surgery and a US romance reality series at an over-30 series event, not on the ATP Tour.
The 30-year-old once known as "Scud" for his missile-like serves will play in a Champions Series event October 17-21 in Dallas with retired elite-level stars John McEnroe, Jim Courier and Mats Wilander to be among his rivals.
"It is going to be a special day for me when I finally step back on the court to play competitive tennis again," Philippoussis said.
"It has been quite an adventurous year so far for me and I'm thrilled that it will now feature me playing against some of the greatest names in tennis history."
