Fish is wrong for life.

Ebden had a play. He probably still wouldn't have made it, he probably wasn't hindered by the call, but Fish's call was way too early, and so the umpire's decision was correct.

I can understand Fish not being happy, it probably was a winning shot from him, but don't be a dumbass, wait for the ball to be clearly dead before making any sort of call like that.

Fish is an idiot. No surprises the guy is panicking as he knows his ranking is doomed.

Remember when Fish trimmed down, lost all those kilos and started winning? He was the talk of the town. Seems like a lifetime ago.

The umpire agrees with Ebden and calls for a replay of the point due to obstruction. Mardy approaches the umpire to argue that his "come on" did not effect the outcome of the point. As always the umpire does not change his mind and tells Mardy that the rules state you can not yell out prior to the point being completed.

As we all remember this is very similar to Serena Williams last year at the US Open.

I watched the point 3 times and every time I feel Mardy called out too early. Ebden had a play on the ball and whether he would have made it or not is irrelevant. The rules are the rules. I have to agree with the umpire on this one.

I'm sure Mardy is more mad at himself today. He should know better then to yell out before the point is over.

What do you think? Was Mardy right wanting the point awarded to him or was the umpire correct?
Fish was wrong, but your memory of the point is incorrect also. It wasnt breakpoint, but 40-40. And umpire didnt replay the point, he gave it to Ebden.AFTER that Fish had to save breakpoint, which he lost. Mardy argued with umpire, he hoped to replay the point, but umpire said it was deliberate hindrance and Ebden won the point.

Fish playing mindgames was pretty stupid, because he knows rules as well as umpire.I´m pretty sure he got hindrance call before, every player experienced it (if not as pro, as kid/junior it happens more often )

It doesnt matter what Ebden would have done with ball without Mardys scream. The very moment Fish shouted , the point was over, what happened later didnt matter at all.

He was wrong here, he was wrong to call Gasquet a "fag," he was wrong when he instigated conflict with Dimitrov (he was just mad that he was losing), he was wrong when he instigated conflict with Mathieu, and he is wrong everytime that he gossips about another player.

Fish is a truly miserable human being.

When did he call Gasquet a "fag"? And why? It was malicious?

He slimmed down and didn't add any muscle. I saw him in Cincy and it was bizarre how thin he looked. Yet everyone raved he was in shape now. I thought he looked fragile.

Fish was wrong, umpire was right. It was a hindrance because regardless of whether you can't get the ball or not, you can't celebrate until the point is over. Should have kept his mouth shut, but then again, he's American .

He seems to acknowledge his mistake and admit it at least.


From press conference.

Q. Do you think there is any kind of irony there is the hindrance call when people call out, Come on and so forth, but the shrieks and grunting in the game from some of the other players are incredibly loud and can't really tell...
MARDY FISH: Fortunately we don't have that too much on our tour. We don't have to worry about it too much.
No, I certainly was in the wrong, but it was an honest mistake. I mean, it was just‑‑ I thought I hit a good shot, and it wasn't good enough, I guess.

Q. Does the chair umpire have the rules flexibility to say...
MARDY FISH: He does. I think he does.

Q. That's not my reading of it. It's different with the slams and the ATP.

Q. There's not too much leeway in there.

MARDY FISH: Yeah. Okay. Well, he has a right to say whether he thought I hindered though, correct?

Q. Basically my reading of it says that if you intended to say come on, then that's a point penalty. It's not that flexible.
MARDY FISH: Okay. Well, he made it seem like it was the other way, that he was 100% sure that I had an effect on the shot. So that's fine. I think the rule is a little off, but it was my mistake.

Since it is unnatural for all MTF to agree on an issue, I'll have to say that Fish was right.

Mardy Fish and Andy Roddick might be nice people outside the tennis court, I have no idea. But their pathetic attitude against referees is just disgraceful, especially since they are wrong 90 percent of their arguments.

I dont think someone that is arguing for something he clearly knows hes not right is good off the court, it almost feels impossible. He has to be the same in life.
