World reports Wimbledon finalist Mark ‘Scud' Philippoussis started sneaking
off for sex in the middle of tournaments with superbabe Anna Kournikova

(Mark's other nickname) had been enjoying a fling for a while. Anna and
he were photographed having a little peck in the car park but things definitely
