Was Mardy Fish right or wrong?

Mardy Fish down a set and break point at 4-4 in the 2nd hits a fantastic short cross court volley. As his opponent sprinted to the ball, and just before contact, Mardy yells "come on!" assuming he won the point. Ebden, his opponent immediately looks to the umpire to replay the point. The umpire agrees with Ebden and calls for a replay of the point due to obstruction. Mardy approaches the umpire to argue that his "come on" did not effect the outcome of the point. As always the umpire does not change his mind and tells Mardy that the rules state you can not yell out prior to the point being completed.

As we all remember this is very similar to Serena Williams last year at the US Open.

I watched the point 3 times and every time I feel Mardy called out too early. Ebden had a play on the ball and whether he would have made it or not is irrelevant. The rules are the rules. I have to agree with the umpire on this one.

I'm sure Mardy is more mad at himself today. He should know better then to yell out before the point is over.

What do you think? Was Mardy right wanting the point awarded to him or was the umpire correct?

Re: Was Mardy Fish right or wrong?

He was wrong. He almost always is.

He was wrong here, he was wrong to call Gasquet a "fag," he was wrong when he instigated conflict with Dimitrov (he was just mad that he was losing), he was wrong when he instigated conflict with Mathieu, and he is wrong everytime that he gossips about another player.

Fish is a truly miserable human being.

Re: Was Mardy Fish right or wrong?

Clearly Ebden had a racket on the ball, Fish had no business arguing about the decision. If it had been a clear winner, then Mardy should've been awarded with the point - similar to line judge overrule.

Re: Was Mardy Fish right or wrong?

He was wrong, I absolutely agree with everyone. Don't know what he was thinking screaming out like that. Was he trying to get into Ebden's head?? If so that back fired horribly.
Heat of the battle I guess you don't think straight. Im sure he was pissed at himself later in the day.

Not like he was winning that match anyways. Ebden was taking it to him but as we've seen if Fish had snuck out the 2nd set things could have turned as they did for Roddick in the 2nd round.

Re: Was Mardy Fish right or wrong?

Fish was wrong, his yelling out before the point had ended is obstructive and the ump made the right decision.
What his intentions were is irrelevant.

Re: Was Mardy Fish right or wrong?

He was wrong. Mardy Fish has a tendency to get very bratty when things don't go his way. It's understandable, he's human, tennis is a very hard game, lots of pressure and stress, a lot of players lose it and show an ugly side. Just many of the great ones no how to control it with so many people watching. Appreciate Mardy's honesty to let out his true feelings, instead of being a fake. Fans want to see drama controversy and strong emotions. Fish gave us a show at least. Tennis can be a crying game. Still love ya Mardy you were great in Davis Cup vs. Switzerland!!

When did he call Gasquet a fag??

Re: Was Mardy Fish right or wrong?

Ebden had a clear play. No debate he was wrong.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.
