Mark out of Davis Cup

Philippoussis is out the Davis Cup against Argentina. The ankle tendon injury he suffered at Wimbledon is still being troublesome and he won’t be able to play on the 15th. And while Mark did move up in the 2005 Champions Race, by going out in the second round he lost the points he had from being the fourth round last year. It was a punishing drop of 66 points taking him to an all-time low of 208.
