Mardy was injured in his ribcage area, and looked fatigued in the second set, but he really recollected himself and served much better the final two sets and played more aggressively (until the last bit of the match). Mello played a lot better and more aggressive in the second set but he lacks weapons. Mardy got into a lot of long grinding rallies that he shouldn't have, I want to see him be more consistently offensive in his next matches.

Mardy should've closed it out a little easier in the 4th, but good first win. I hope he gets better if he is hurt

what was fish complainning so much in this match at times? I never saw him so upset with the umpire for some reason.

Mardy was complaining about a time violation warning, and about movement in the stands.
