I'd like Mardy's chances against a tired Rafa on grass.

Ooh, I would love it if it were Mardy to be the one to stop Rafa's streak.

"I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Mardy! Cleaning up with the titles

Good luck to him at Queen's. Be the hero to Federer fans everywhere and take Rafa out

Flake are so fun to watch. Have a great time!

I'm annoyed we can't pick Mardy for the ATP Fantasy game

Fish powers to Surbiton victory
BBC

American Mardy Fish set his sights on a place at Wimbledon after securing the first grass-court title of the season at the Surbiton Trophy.

Fish, who is on the way back after wrist surgery last year, beat South African top seed Wesley Moodie 6-2 7-6.

He overcame Moodie with some blistering returns and a superior mobility.

But he may still have to go through qualifying to reach the Wimbledon main draw, unless he repeats the success this week at Queen's Club.

Moodie paid for a slow start by surrendering the opening set in only 22 minutes and when a more keenly fought second set resulted in a tie-break, fourth seed Fish dropped just one point.

"I'm thrilled to have won this title after lifting two others on hard court and clay this year," said the American, who was as high as 17th in the world at one stage.

"Now I'm really looking forward to Queen's and Wimbledon, especially after last year, and I'm ready for it.

"I got a bad injury, tearing ligaments and tendons after a fall on clay. I was about 25 in the world at the time, but I guess I tried to come back a little too early after the surgery and was out for about six months."

from the tourney site
==============
Mardy Fish Wins Surbiton Trophy

Mardy Fish clinched the first grass court title of the season today beating 2003 champion Wesley Moodie 6-2 7-6(1) in a little over an hour on a humid day to win the Surbiton Trophy. Fish who is playing his first full season since returning from two operations on his left wrist has been in tremendous form all week dropping just one set to reach the final.

Fish, 24 year old from Minnesota, USA reached a career high of 17 in 2004 before a string of injury problems. He started strongly breaking the tall South African in the fifth game and going on to secure a double break, taking the set 6-2. Fish has already won an ATP title this year and a combination of powerful serving and spectacular returning was clearly too much for the tournament’s top seed Wesley Moodie.

The second set was a closer affair with both players serving increasingly well. Moodie had his chance towards the end of the second with a set point with his opponent serving at 5-6. An ace from Fish ruled out any chances of a comeback for the South African and the second set tie break was dominated by clinical serving and ferocious returning from the American who clinched the tie break 7-1 and with it, the Surbiton Trophy title.

Mardy Fish: “I played pretty well today. This is a tough tournament to win, there are always some really good players here. I started well and as the match progressed my serving got better and better. I came up with a few important aces and got an early advantage in the tie break. I love playing on grass, its my favourite surface and I’m looking forward to the next month especially Wimbledon, some of my best memories are there.

Moodie; “He was the better player on the day. It was disappointing to lose in the final again but Mardy was too good for me today. I started off a bit slowly but he was returning unbelievably well and I was never really in the first set. I really like this tournament and I’m pretty happy with my week, I’m glad to be back on grass and I’m looking forward to teaming up with Stephen Huss at Wimbledon again to defend our double titles.”

Fish, who is now back inside the top 100, will travel to Queen’s Club today to take part in the Stella Artois Championships where he will face rising British star Jamie Baker who was also on court in Surbiton today, taking part in an exhibition match against former top ten player Paradorn Srichaphan. Wesley Moodie will also be playing at the Stella Artois Championships before travelling to Nottingham for the Red Letter Days Open in a bid to get as much practice on grass before defending his Men’s Doubles Title at Wimbledon.

In the men's doubles final Jordan Kerr of Australia and Jim Thomas of American retained their title defeating the Australian pairing of Wayne Arthurs and Chris Guccione 6-2 6-4.
