Biography

Mark Philippoussis, nicknamed the 'Scud' holds the world record
for the fastest serve of 229km/hour. One of Australia's best
known and most talented international tennis stars, Mark has
enjoyed a successful career on the court with a career high ATP
ranking of 8 in 1999.

Unfortunately injury has plagued the past few years of Mark's career with repeated knee injuries in 2001, however his misfortune has only led to strengthening Mark's resolve to be the best he can be and focus on climbing to the top of the rankings as soon as he is fit and well.

Mark turned Professional in 1994 at the age of eighteen. The following year he jumped a world singles ranking of 307 to number 32, becoming the youngest player to make the year-end Top 50. Since then Mark has climbed the world ranking ladder, making a four week appearance in the Top 20 in 1996 and in the same year, he reached the fourth round of the Australian Open where he upset Number One, Pete Sampras in the third round.
