Mark Philippoussis (AUS)

Calabasas - With solid shots and powerful serves, Mark Philippoussis (AUS) moves into the quarterfinals with a win over Harel Levy (ISR) 6-3, 6-4.

Philippoussis, who has been working out in Las Vegas with Darren Cahill and Gil Reyes, showed he has the potential for a big come back. "I feel I still have my best tennis ahead of me", he said after his match. With a positive attitude and perhaps a new outlook on the game, Philippoussis appears to be well on his way. "Everyday, when I wake up, I tell myself I'm going to give 100%". He will turn 30 in a couple weeks.

Philippoussis is seeded fourth which leaves room for a very exciting weekend at the $50,000 Calabasas Challenger. Robert Kendrick (USA), who took Rafa Nadal 5 sets at Wimbledon this year and first seed Danai Udomchoke (THA) are still battling for this title. This is a rare opportunity to see such high quality tennis in a local intimate setting.

Hosting the tournament is the Calabasas Tennis & Swim Club run by Top Seed Tennis Academy. Tuesday night, Top Seed Academy hosted USTA/WTT league Night. Tennis community leaders were recognized for their dedication to tennis in the San Fernando Valley. Tournament Director, Jeff Richards (pictured below) says attendance is up from last year and so far everything is going well. Click on the Daily Schedule link to get the latest match times.
