Only a week til Mardy returns, hopefully this time for good!!! It'll be a long way back, since he's only a few weeks short of qualifying for injury protection (if only he hadn't tried to play the USO:().

He's playing Delray, then I imagine he will get WCs for San Jose, Memphis, and Vegas, and hopefully IW and Miami too.

C'mon Mardy, show us you did a lot of hard work during your time off :bounce:

On Eve Of Return, Fish To Appear On Tennis Live Online

By Tennis Week
01/27/2006

Sidelined for much of last season after undergoing surgery on his left wrist, Mardy Fish will launch his comeback at the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships next week. You can ask Fish about his return to tournament tennis, the state of his health and game and his plans for the 2006 season and listen to his reply tomorrow.

Fish, who has been training daily under the guidance of fitness guru Pat Etcheberry in Saddlebrook, Florida, will appear on Tennisliveonline.com tomorrow (Saturday) at 1 p.m. Eastern time. Tennisliveonline.com is a one-hour tennis show devoted to tennis. The show is broadcast on two AM radio stations — 1510 The Zone (Sporting News Radio in Boston) and 1320 The Drive (Sporting News Radio Providence) — and web cast online at Tennisliveonline.com. You can email your questions for Fish to Tennisliveonline.com now or phone (866) 337-ZONE (9663) at 1 p.m. on Saturday to talk tennis. Registration to the web site is free.

"We want the show to be a standard sports talk radio show where people can email questions and comments and call in live to talk tennis," host Todd Skovron told Tennis Week today. "So we're encouraging all tennis fans to email and call us. If you want to send questions for Mardy Fish, talk Australian Open, talk about Baghdatis, talk about Hingis, that's great. We want it to be an interactive show."

Past guests have included Jim Courier, Taylor Dent, Mary Joe Fernandez, Hall of Fame writer and Tennis Week senior feature writer Bud Collins. Archived segments of those interviews are available at Tennisliveonline.com.

The 24-year-old Fish, who reached a career-high rank of No. 17 in March of 2004, appeared poised for a breakthrough that year as he advanced to the Athens Olympic Games gold medal match and held a lead before bowing to Chile's Nicolas Massu. Fish helped the United States reach the Davis Cup final in December of 2004 in Seville, Spain where the Americans were overwhelmed by former No. 1 Carlos Moya and a rising teenager named Rafael Nadal, who played the type of tennis that would propel him to the Roland Garros title just six months later.

Preparing for his return to the pro circuit, Fish has been hitting with his friend, James Blake, near his Tampa home this week. Prior to his wrist surgery, Fish's questionable conditioning had slowed his progress, but Blake told Tennis Week in a conference call today Fish has been devoted to a rigorous workout regimen with Etcheberry in Saddlebrook.

"I hit with him the last few days here in Tampa. He's hitting the ball well. He's very excited to get back on the road and go to Delray Beach, and he's looking better," Blake said of Fish. "That's something that I think will just take a little time to get back. But he's in much better shape than he was when he played a few years ago. He's been working out at Saddlebrook very religiously. He's been up at six a.m. and working out and going for extra jogs and everything he can. I definitely sympathize with him because I remember the times when you don't have a tournament coming up and you're injured or sick and you can't do anything else and you want to get back. It sometimes manifests in working out and getting into better shape and knowing that hopefully it's going to help you out in the long run. I think it'll help him out in the long run because he's in better shape, and that breeds confidence when he works harder. He definitely feels like he's worked harder over the last couple months that most of the guys who are on Tour. I think that's definitely going to help him."

Blake, who strengthened his stamina during his time off from tennis as he recovered from a fractured vertebrae in his neck, said Fish will inevitably go through a transition period upon his initial return as he accumulates more match play.

" It's going to take time because no matter how good you are or how hard you've worked, there's no substitute for playing matches," Blake said. "I think he needs to get a few matches in, and then once he gets a little bit of confidence in match play, I think he's going to get that ranking right back up there."

A Fish out of water no more

Two wrist surgeries kept American off the court for months. He's ready to return.


By Harvey Fialkov
Staff writer

January 29, 2006

DELRAY BEACH · Seemingly leaner:yeah: and blonder:hearts:, Mardy Fish sounded far older than 24.

"When you get injured like that and out for that long," said Fish, while applying ice to his left wrist after a practice session at the Delray Beach Tennis Center Saturday:awww:, "it makes you realize how valuable every year is and how much you miss it, and how short tennis careers are.

"I'm already 24 and have to savor every year.":)

Fish is coming off two wrist surgeries and will be making his 2006 debut at the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships.

Fish noticed the legendary Andre Agassi, 35, the top seed of a 32-player field in the ITC who will take on Ricardo Mello Monday night, walking around and shook his head.

"That won't be me. Definitely," he said.:(

Fish, who like Agassi accepted a wild card into the ITC after missing the Australian Open because of injury, has seen his ranking plummet from a career-high 17 in 2004 to 247, out of the top 100 for the first time since 2001. His first surgery came in May after a practice session in Rome, and then during a match at Indianapolis he heard the pop again. Same wrist. Same injury.

"Week by week I waited for it to get better. What was most frustrating was I never was given a timetable," said Fish, who was 6-11 last year and finally agreed to another surgery after barely being able to hold his trademark two-handed backhand with his left hand at the U.S. Open.:sad:

"There were days and weeks I didn't want to be near the court because I knew I was four months away from playing Delray Beach, but luckily I stuck with the off-court stuff.":yeah::D

Fish has been training with renowned fitness guru Pat Etcheberry at Saddlebrook near his home in Tampa and has reduced his weight from 190 to 182 and his body fat from 15 to 8 percent.:eek: :yeah:

"My goal was to come back a better player than when I left," said Fish, who will play Germany's Simon Greul in the first round. "I'm stronger and in much better shape and moving better. We'll see how I play after I get a few matches in.":D:D:D

Just like his contemporary Robby Ginepri, the knock on the 6-foot-2 Fish was that he slacked off in the conditioning department after enjoying early success in 2003 when he was ranked 20th after winning his first and only ATP singles title (at Stockholm).

"I think they both realize how much better they are when they're more fit," said Scott Humphries, Fish's coach. "Mardy needs not to be tough on himself but have a short memory until he's in match shape."

Other than No. 3-ranked Andy Roddick, his former housemate and classmate while at Boca Prep, Fish was ranked ahead of his American peers such as Ginepri (No. 18), James Blake (No. 22) and Taylor Dent (No. 31) a few years ago.

Now, he's the forgotten American:hug::hug:, particularly after Blake's and Ginepri's meteoric climb up the rankings last summer when they reached the quarterfinals and semifinals of the U.S. Open, respectively.

"It's a lot of what have you done for me lately, and I haven't done anything lately," said Fish, who lost the 2003 final here to Jan-Michael Gambill. "I don't worry about that kind of stuff and don't mind if people recognize me or not. I love those guys and am out there having a good time."

Fish said he took confidence from Blake's amazing comeback from a broken neck and disease that caused partial paralysis in his face and blurry vision to rise from 210 to 25 last year.

"I wanted to be with James so bad it was tough to watch on TV or check results," Fish said of his neighbor and poker pal. "James wasn't even able to hit a ball. I could do everything except hit my two-handed backhand, a shot I need.

"Sure, watching James come back so quickly and even Kimmy Clijsters the same thing from her wrist injury gives me hope that I could come back even quicker. I have to keep it in perspective.

"I remember joking with James after he won Stockholm. Now his picture is on the wall with past champions, there with me and some other guy [Thomas Johansson]."

Fish is hoping to add plenty of similar pictures before he puts down his racket for good.:D

From an AP article, goodish news I guess
================
Mardy Fish, returning to the tour following two operations on his left wrist last season, suffered a frustrating 6-3, 6-3 loss to Simon Greul of Germany.

``It wasn't the wrist. I think it was the rust,'' said Fish, who hadn't played a match since losing in the first round of the 2005 U.S. Open.

02-14-2006, 02:09 PM
I'm sure he will after he stops being able to get WCs into US tourneys, come April or so. He just needs time, he's a momentum/confidence player, some players can do well after long layoffs, I don't think Mardy's that kind of guy - especially with his serve it's all so much in his head. He just has to not get down about it and keep talking to James and stuff and it will come.

Ugh. Poor Mardy gets flattened by a kid with bad teeth and a 'fro. :sad:

I agree with everyone who said that Mardy should do challengers. There's no shame in that. He's been out for so long that his ranking is certain to draw him up against a top player like Roger in the first round of a major tournament and that's a guaranteed loss.

Playing challengers will allow him to get back in the groove and find his game and confidence again.

Deboogle!.
02-14-2006, 05:58 PM
I'm sure he will do challengers, but if he is getting the WCs into the main tour events he should play those while he can. Memphis has a weaker field next week, maybe he can get lucky and get a soft draw for a couple rounds. Of course, his first round in Delray was soft, too but yeah

Yes, Fee is one of the drivers there this week and I think she said she spoke very briefly with her. I saw Meredith with Mardy last summer in LA, she's very pretty and seems like a nice normal girl, they are very close so it's no surprise she accompanies him sometimes.

Here, I remembered i took pics last summer when they were watching one of Mardy's buddies in qualifying. First one is with their mom, she's the pretty one in the green tank top. click for bigger. You can see that they look alike :)

This is my first post on here. I've always known who Mardy was, but I was more of a Roddick fan until recently. I met Mardy in Memphis, and he and I got pretty close (wink, wink!!). I am now a devoted Fish fan!! I hope he can come back from the wrist surgeries and have a kick ass season!!

Good call on the name, Fee! I was at the matches in Memphis, and Fish and Blake played a truly awesome first set, and then just lost it. Let's just hope he and Ginepri don't do the same.

He played pretty decently. In the 2nd set he was up a break and lost it and it was a tough 2nd set and he came out and played some good stuff in the TB. At the end he seemed happy, but more RELIEVED. So obviously this is good for him :D He plays his 2nd round tomorrow, Finepri were moved to tomorrow night b/c of the schedule backup.

Mardy lost 4-6 4-6 :( Looks from the stats like he had his chances and that it was close.... his first serve % was under 50% - he was having this problem even before his injury. He reminds me of Lindsay D., in the sense that his game really flows from his first serve and if he's not getting it in, he's not gonna have much success. Maybe he needs to take a few mph off it or something to get in more than 46% or whatever, but that's not gonna cut it.

Nice effort Mardy, things are starting to look up :)

He still tried real hard :hug: His ranking will go up a bit b/c he won 2 matches instead of one. He has points to defend at Miami but I Think he has a good chance to qualify.

Then he'll hopefully enter Challengers (he'll need WCs for them but he should be able to get them in the US I hope).... that will help a lot and hopefully he'll try to qualify for Wimby too.
