MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Big-serving Australian Mark Philippoussis predicted Sunday he would win the men's title at the 2002 Wimbledon championships, where he has been a quarter-finalist three times in the past four years.

``I'm going to win Wimbledon this year. I know it and I will,'' Philippoussis was quoted as saying in The Sunday Age newspaper. ``I'm definitely going to win it.''

Philippoussis, 25, missed much of the 2001 season after undergoing knee surgery for the third time in March.

Now 10 kilograms lighter thanks to a new training program under former Davis Cup player Peter McNamara, Philippoussis reached the final of the Australian men's hardcourt championship in Adelaide last week before losing to top seed Tim Henman.

``Who knows, if I wouldn't have got injured I would have just gone through my tennis career and, you know, maybe just gone in the top 10 now and again, but just stayed in the top 20 and, you know, been happy and partied and my tennis career would have been over and I would have regretted it,'' Philippoussis said.

``But now I've had a big wake-up call and, like I said, I'm committing myself to the tennis, whereas in the past it hasn't been like that.''

He has the game to win Wimbledon! In fact if he is healthy for the most part of this year he is MY PICK to win it.:)

Good luck to him, please let him beat Henman on the way (again) - and preferably early on so we can watch some of the other players.
