Even if he loses, the key is to play his best and see where exactly his form is matching up with the world's best.

The Tennis Diet:
On the eve of the Roddick/Cilic match, my brother made Seafood Marinara. Can't eat it,
it's not part of the diet; it is enemy food. ie. Marin-ara Cilic.
I also did not eat Curry 'cos it rhymes with Murray.


I fangirl for Roddickulous, Youzhless and the Djoke.

Yea, go flake!!!!!

Here's an article from the local paper in IW
----------------
Fish to face Federer after quick victory

Thomas St. Myer
The Desert Sun
March 13, 2005

INDIAN WELLS - Mardy Fish disposed of fellow American Jan-Michael Gambill before the crowd settled into their seats Saturday morning at Stadium Court at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.

In about an hour, Fish knocked off Gambill 6-2, 6-2 in the opening match to advance to the second round of the Pacific Life Open.

Fish won 85 percent of his first serves, 76 percent of his total serves and saved all three of his break points.

"I put the pressure on him and kept it on him in the second set," Fish said.

In reward for his outstanding play Saturday, Fish moves on to play world No. 1 Roger Federer. In their four previous matches, Fish won only one of 10 sets.

In their first encounter, he won the third set in their round of 32 match at the 2003 Wimbledon. Last year, he played Federer in the fourth round here at Indian Wells and lost 6-4, 6-1.

"I don't think too many guys out there think they can beat him," Fish said. "I'd like to think that I can or at least fake that I can."

Ranked No. 11 in the world juniors before he turned pro in 2000, the 23-year-old Fish once expected to hear his name mentioned in the company of Federer and his former roommate Andy Roddick. Today, he still sits on the outside looking in at the top ATP Tour players.

Fish owns a mediocre 91-72 record and only one title - the 2003 Stockholm Open.

"I'm still a ways away from contending with the best," Fish said. "I've made a lot of changes technically and mentally and I'm banking on them coming together soon."

Coached by former ATP pro Todd Martin and Scott Humphries, Fish said on the court he recently altered his forehand volley and serve toss. Off the court, he now adheres to the advice of Martin, whereas in the past he sometimes tuned out his coaches. (WELL, GOOD!!!!!!!)

Though superstardom remains out of reach for now, if Fish straightens out a few of those kinks, watch out.

In his junior days, tennis experts pegged him a future superstar for a reason.

"There's a couple of guys out there that I think have the ability to break through and he's one of them," Roddick said.

Thanks Deb.

I'd love to see him do very well this year. Unfortunetly the clay season is pretty soon. But hopefully Martin can help him out a bit there.

Re: the "please don't get drawn against fed or andy" indian wells thread

Today's match is going to be really interesting. Though many players think that they can't best Federer, the best time to best him is in the early rounds when he is not so confident and going at full flight. I still don't know how Mardy will play, but I am hoping to see a good match today.

Re: the "please don't get drawn against fed or andy" indian wells thread

Suprise suprise Mardy lost 6-3,6-3. He broke once in the first set though. I watched the match and he had some moments of brilliance, but not enough to compete with Rog. In the first game he double fautled the first point, and another time I believe. He seemed kind of nervous in the beginning.

BUTTTTTT when it was 4-2 in the second, Roger hit this amazing angled cross court shot which you would think would be a winner, but Mardy got it back and perfectly hit it in the corner, cross court.

Mardy looked like he was going out to play basketball with Cousin Vinny after. He wore a headband with a green adidas logo. WTF? Your outfit is yellow/white/black .. no green! But he wears low socks so I'll give him a for that.

Hopefully next tournament he'll get a better draw and get to R3.

Mardy Fish for president.

Re: the "please don't get drawn against fed or andy" indian wells thread

I'm sorry I should have clarified it. He wore the bright yellow shirt, but a headband that was white with a green adidas logo. It was odd.

Not really a surprising loss. I loved the on-the-run passing shot.

Also, the hair doesn't look as bad on T.V.

Lauren Low socks rule.

Re: the "please don't get drawn against fed or andy" indian wells thread

i watched his match, i think he played pretty well compared to the rest of this year, he hit some really nice shots, and kept up with most of the rallies, and took a few games from fed. i'm proud of him. hopefully he can get past the second round at his next tourn.

his hair looks really fuzzy and soft.

Dima love!
