We normally stay away from the Mark personal life postings, but the articles actually have some newer photos of Mark in them and that’s a rarity these days. The girl in question is Melbourne model Silvana Lovin. Also the last article talks about players who were known for their serves. I love the reference to Philippoussis whose “serve was the nightclub bouncer of serves” which is just a brilliant description.
Welcome loyal readers to the newest incarnation of the Mark Philippoussis Archives. I’ve gone full-on WordPress so that it’s now hopefully quicker for me to update whenever Mark news appears. All our pages made the migration and new is a biography of Mark’s (note: bios are not my best area so if you notice an error please let me know).
