July 17, 2005: Philippoussis played as planned with the FoxForce team this weekend. Details are sketchy (TeamTennis gets very little coverage). In his first matches he lost to McEnroe, but later won his singles match against Ryan Newport and then teamed with Don Johnson to win doubles. Mark will stay with the FoxForce for two road matches against the Capitals and the Wranglers this week. On serious tennis news, the draw for the RCA Championships is tonight and there is still one wildcard unassigned, so corss your fingers that it goes to Mark!
July 14, 2005: It seems that Mark’s ankle injury is healing. He’s been called up to replace Boris Becker in this weekend’s Team Tennis match in New York. He will join the Hartford FoxForce team and play today and tomorrow.
