Melbourne newspaper headlines [Tusday 1st July 2003] show little support for a local lad, Mark Philippoussis!
The SCUD (Melburnian) blasts his way past the No 1 player in the world Andre Agassi and rates:
Herald Sun [front page] - No mention
The Age - Scud wrecks American dream at Wimbledon (sub-feature)
SPORT, injury or personal issues rank SCUD below:
Elliott vows to fight
Revenge is mine, says Moran's mother
Banned Elliott vows to fight on
Motorists hit first by state fee rises
Feared in life, honoured in death
Stories such as Elliot, Motorists and Gangsters are newsworthy, but surely a Melburnian who beats the Number 1 player in the world, at the home of Tennis (Wimbledon), deserves better support from his home town.
