Philippoussis engaged! Last week while in the US Mark proposed to Alexis Barbara, his girlfriend of five months, an 18 year old model / actor from Florida. Friends of Philippouss were told last week and someone passed the news to the media which has been running with the story. So far there has been no official word from Mark or his agent. (Given this site’s policy of trying to stay away from Mark’s personal life, I’m hesitant to list this, but it’s covered extensively in the Australian media so it’s no secret anymore). On the tennis front there’s been no announcement yet of a wild card for the Pacific Life Open.
