Fish hasn’t ruled out retirement after Miami

Mardy is thinking about retirement

Quote:

Mardy Fish, who on Sunday played and won his first match since the third round of the 2012 U.S. Open, says he has not planned his season beyond the tournament in Miami, which begins in a little more than in a week’s time. The 31-year-old American, who has been experiencing heart trouble and anxiety issues, told reporters that he is planning to play Miami and then will assess the clay-court season. He says he has not ruled out retirement, mentioning again that last fall, when he rarely left his house, that he had already retired in his head on a number of occasions.

“Maybe step back and see how I feel, see where I am personally, see if, after these two weeks if it's something that I can still do at a high level,” he said.

“That [retirement] will certainly be a question I'll ask. But hopefully I'll resume sort of a normal schedule. We'll see.”

Re: Mardy in 2013

Hopefully, he doesn't pull out.

Re: Mardy in 2013

Not really surprised that fish lost considering he has only played two atp tour level matches this year. Good idea I think for him to play a couple of challengers to give him confidence and some much needed match play

Fish pulls out of Tallahassee Challenger

Quote:
Mardy Fish has withdrawn from the 2013 Tallahassee Challenger, once again citing personal reasons for pulling out. The 31-year-old Fish has been contending with heart trouble as well as anxiety issues since last May.

Fish played in his first event in six months at Indian Wells where he beat Bobby Reynolds before losing to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. He then withdrew from Miami. Fish entered a couple of USTA Pro Circuit events in Savannah and Tallahassee in an effort to sharpen his clay-court game without taking a trip to Europe. He lost in the opening round of Savannah to Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo. Yesterday, he tweeted a picture of himself at a Minnesota Twins game. He is a native of the state.

Fish has said he is undecided on his plans for the rest of the season. Fish is currently ranked No. 42 but doesn't have any points to defend until Wimbledon, where he reached he fourth round in 2012 after a quarterfinal appearance the prior year.

“We’re sad not to have Mardy back in Tallahassee this year, but wish him all of the best,” tournament director Karen Vogter told WTXL TV in Tallahassee. “We have 14 Americans that we’re thrilled are here for the tournament.”
