What has happened to Mardy Fish? Just noticed he checked out in the first round at the*French. Is his game on life support? -- John M., NYC
First, let's try something new and address Fish without making any piscatorial puns.
If you were looking for Fish to emerge, it wasn't going to happen at the French. Like most Americans he's as comfortable playing on clay as he is preparing a soufflé. The guy clearly has some psychological work to do. But in fairness he's been hurt for much of the year. Not sure of his status for Wimbledon. But look for him to rebound in Newport, R.I.,*and then on the hard-court junket.
