An Interview With Mardy Fish

Mardy Fish was present when Wilson broke the Guinness World Record for the most people bouncing a tennis ball at the same time, and after the event I got a chance to ask him a few questions.

I saw you at Taste of Tennis last night [he was the last person on the green carpet] how hard was it to get here this morning?

Not at all, it was an early wake-up call but that's pretty much it, you get out here and it's a few days before the tournament so it's totally fine.

What is your favorite thing to do here in NY?

Probably, you know, just once you make sure all your practices are all set and everything, you want to get back and enjoy the city and go to restaurants and things like that.  We don't really go out or anything too much so, just save ourselves, and you know, you want to put yourself in the best position.

Any particular restaurant you would recommend?

I'm a huge fan of Mr. Chow.  Love it there.

What is your favorite food?

Favorite food?  Uh, probably pizza even though I don't eat it anymore.

Just a little NY trivia.  Do you know how many boroughs there are in NY?

5?

And do you know what they are?

Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and (pause).

It's an island.

Staten Island?

Yes (laughter).

I don't think I would have gotten that one.

What has your favorite moment been here at the US Open so far?

Probably 2008.  I was able to play a couple of night matches, play Nadal in the quarterfinals and fell in love with the tournament then.

And how are you dealing with all the increased visibility?

It's certainly different but you try to have fun with it too.  You get to meet a lot of new people and, you know, it's fun, it's a good position to be in.
