In 2012 Mardy missed nearly 3 months because of an accelerated heartbeat. In May 2012 a procedure was done to correct the problem. Fish said the operation “gave us peace of mind that everything was ok.”
With no American men reaching the third round of Wimbledon, and only John Isner inside the top 20, a healthy return to the tour could be a boost to US tennis. “I’ve done all the right things to put myself in position to come back,” Fish told espn. “I’m ready to do it.”
