mark-philippoussisFormer Australian tennis star Mark Philippoussis is currently facing financial collapse as he is unable to pay his mortgage on his Williamstown home in bayside Melbourne.

Philippoussis earned more than $8 million dollars on court over the years, but is now being sued for failing to pay the mortgage and not just for a small amount, for about $1.3 million.

“Money came in left, right and centre; you just thought that’s how it was for everyone and that’s how it will always be,” he said.

“It’s the toughest time of my life right now, but it’s also the best time because I’ve woken up to so many things in my life.

“When I get back up from this I’ll appreciate so many things so much more. I’ve fallen down and I’ll get back up. This is how it is. It’s life.”
