We well know Mardy Fish's performance in IW (finalist). But how far he advance here in Miami ? Again sweeps everyone on his way to the final (and los to Djoko ;) ), or he loss earlier ? BTW his draw doesn't seem to hard, and with his form from IW Semifinal is very possible

In the proud tradition of fluke runs, I'd say he loses early.
NTW, I'm not suggesting that Fish didn't play well or deserved to be in the final last week. All I'm saying is that we've seen this happens loads of times before. Some player in the top 100 gets hot from out of nowhere and pulls together and string of impressive wins during one tournament and then quickly fades back into anonymity afterwards. I think that'll happen again with Fish. Roberto Carretero (who?) is probably the best example of this phenomenon. The man barely won a match again after his impressive, from out of nowhere, run to the Hamburg title in 1996.

I expect him to lose early. It can only go down from here for him. I don't see him having another run like in IW for the whole year.

he will lose in thirs round against youzhny

Of course he'll lose early. He is drunk and still trying to find his socks somewhere in the desert :devil:
If he gets to Davy/Murray/Ancic he will lose.

His way after 1st round will be probably: Almagro (not bad)/Youzhny (little harder but again not a disaster)/Ferrer (first big deal, but after Ferrer's poor performance in IW maybe this will be not as hard for Fish)/Murray or Davydenko (Fish beats Davydenka easily in IW)/In SF will be probably Fed, A-Rod or Tsonga/ And Djoko on Final.
But like most say, Fish probably lost much, much earlier than in IW.

He is going to finals again!
Fish reached the peak of his career last week.
Arnie will bring him back to earth.

Clement has done nothing in 2008 and i dont think his game is going to fit well in Miami this week, Fish at least makes it by 1st round probably.

Well, there is the danger of over-hyping him, but if he can actually keep his good form up, there is no-one in his 1/8 section of the draw that he CAN'T beat. :angel:
Obviously though, he could fall to anyone, and my prediction would be R2 or R3...Clement really must be horrible right now.
Youzhny will handle him comfortably in the third round.
