PinExt The Return of Mardy Fish?

Mardy Fish has not played consistently on the ATP Tour since the summer of 2012.  Next week Fish hopes to make the Atlanta Open (Entry List) his first ATP event since Indian Wells this spring.

 

He’s played only three matches, Indian Wells Masters and the Savannah Challenger, since withdrawing from last year’s US Open in the Quarterfinals.   Fish, who in 2011 was number 7 in the world, has fallen to 61 this year.

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.”
