Mardy Fish and John Isner fire back at Ivan Ljubicic over Twitter

Not sure if you all saw the heated exchange between Ivan Ljubicic, Mardy Fish and John Isner today on Twitter, but it was pretty rough.

Ljubicic called out American players for skipping European tournaments and wondered what would happen if Europeans decided to skip US tournaments. Isner and then Fish both fired back and Fish even deleted his tweet probably realizing he went overboard!

lol. Pretty stupid comment by Legenda though to be fair.

the last tweet there is right, Ljubicic needs to join MTF, would teach him a thing or 2 about ways to not make stupid comments

Fish is proving he's dumb as well as obnoxious and horrible at tennis. At least have some balls to leave what you wrote and man up to it....nope Mugdy is too gutless to even do that. Hope he loses in R1 of every tournament he graces with his mug self.

Mardy does have a disease of some sort, though, so one can see why he would get upset about the potshot from Ljubo.

It's not as if Americans have done this for the first time ever. They've been ignoring the European clay swing for years and years.

What is this about Lopez tweeting something about the US Open? Was it the thing with Gimelstob?

Re: Mardy Fish and John Isner fire back at Ivan Ljubicic over Twitter

Mardy Fish is a jerk but Ljubicic is out of line here, I really don't like it when players take potshots over other players on Twitter out of all places. Recently, Ljubicic also called Maria Sharapova disrespectful for calling Stuttgart one of her warm up tournaments for Roland Garros. He's getting a bit too touchy in his retirement, methinks.

Both need their heads examined. No offence.

andy roddick is the only yank player of today's era who has a history of routinely skipping european clay tourneys. mardy fish, ryan harrison, john isner and sam querrey do play most of the important clay euro tournaments with relative consistency. james blake used to as well but has fallen back in the last 2 seasons. not sure if that's due to his low ranking, injuries or something else...

i don't think there was a need for legenda to make such a generalization these days.

Would have been better had Ljubo made a direct attack on Roddick instead of making a generalizing comment about Americans.

As for Fish, his reaction and subsequent retreat is not a surprise, as he never seemed to be the smartest of tennis players.
