Mardy Fish is Winning at Life


ATLANTA – The scoreboard showed a different result. It would be 2014 finalist Dudi Sela advancing to the second round of the BB&T Atlanta Open.

But Mardy Fish, playing only his second tennis match in nearly two years, still was a winner.

“It was a success just to get out there and play,” said the tournament’s 2010 and 2011 champion.

Fish has been sidelined by anxiety-related issues. He retired in the third round of the Winston-Salem Open in August 2013 and, after a year-and-a-half hiatus, attempted a comeback at the BNP Paribas Open in March earlier this year.

The winner of six ATP World Tour singles titles plans to retire at the U.S. Open this fall, after competing in Cincinnati next month.

Fish said he is grateful to finish his career on his own terms, reconnecting with the sport and people he cherishes.

“I’d love to win some matches, but that’s not in the forefront of my mind,” he said. 

“This sport, my job, was taken from me so abruptly that it took me a long time to sort of get my life back. I have different goals now than I did a couple years ago – just to play again, just to compete out here again in this tournament is a blast.”

“It’ll be a lot different at the Open, I’m sure,” he added.

Fish is speaking candidly of his crippling panic attacks and strides to overcome them, hoping his story helps others.

Mardy Fish Reveals His Struggle With Anxiety

Mary Fish has opened up about his anxiety disorder to USA Today. Fish, who has not played a competitive tennis match for a year, has been struggling with panic attacks and anxiety. He is no longer suffering from panic attacks every half an hour, but he is still on medication and is in therapy. 
Fish's news comes as a shock to the tennis world. As tennis lovers, we are somewhat used to hearing about wrist and knee injuries, but an injury to the mind reminds us that tennis professionals are just human. I'm sure we all know at least one person who has stuggled with anxiety, and it's good that Fish is talking about something many people keep to themselves. 
On The Go wishes Mardy Fish all the best in his recovery and we hope he finds happiness whether on the court or off it.

Tweets of The Week: Boston, Adam Scott, and Clay Court Prowess...

It was a big news week this week, with lots of tragedy mixed in with sporting victories. The Boston Marathon bombings and subsequent man hunt certainly dominated the news. Tennis players were just as horrified as the rest of us, and many shared their thoughts on Twitter. However, if we searched through all the tweets dedicated to Boston we would have a enough Tweets of the Week posts for a year! Here's a small selection.

Tasty! Photos and Interviews from the BNP Paribas Taste of Tennis 

It's that time of year again when famous chefs and tennis players rub shoulders with other "celebrities" like women from Real Housewives of NY (huh?) at the BNP Paribas Taste of Tennis that benefits the NY Junior Tennis League.  We (Kait O'Callahan and I, Rachel Vinson) had an awesome time on the green carpet chatting it up with fellow tennis bloggers and stumping the players with our question.

Caroline Wozniacki interview bombs Mardy Fish

Today at the BNP Paribas Open, a journalist named Caroline Wozniacki, who is known to interrupt press conferences, hijacked Mardy Fish's presser and then chatted about golf.  It went a little something like this:  

Caroline:  Excuse me, I have a question.  We all know that you're so good.  You finished off the match very quickly, but can you please finish off your press conference?  I'm actually after you, and I'd like to go back and...

Mardy:  How well did Rory play today?

Caroline:  Very nice, yeah.

Mardy:  Very good.

Caroline: 7-under.  How's your golf game?

Mardy:  Horrible.

Caroline:  I don't believe you.  You have your clubs here, I bet.

Mardy:  I do.  I haven't played yet.

Caroline:  You should go out and play.

Mardy:  I haven't played yet.  I might take a lesson from you.

Q. How do you think he'd do on the PGA?

Caroline:  No comment.

Oh Caro.....


Shanked Balls and Double Faults

Laura Robson wears a discrete rainbow hair tie to show her support

Kait O'Callahan is a contributing writer for OnTheGoTennis.  She is currently at the Australian Open with her brother and will be sharing her stories from the matches they attend.

It's already hot when we turn up for our first match. The wind is blowing strong and it looks like we are in for a day of shanked balls and double faults. It certainly starts that way as we tune in for Frederick Nielson and Kevin Anderson. Nielson, who we developed a soft spot for during his Hopman Cup choke loss to Gasquet, has fought his way through qualifying and been rewarded with a match against the man who donated a huge chunk of his first ATP title's prize money to saving rhinos. Anderson is too good for Nielson, and we leave after the first set.

A Russian woman is seated in front of us, playing with the pearls dangling from her neck. Her matching earrings and expensive looking black dress stand out amongst the masses of t-shirts and denim shorts. She flits on her high heels towards the shade every few games. It's hot work being that glamourous. She's there to watch Nikolay Davydenko, who appears to be playing well against the very defensive Flavio Cipolla. Unfortunately, that all changes when up two sets up to one, Davydenko begins to tire, and eventually loses in five. It's a disappointing first round exit for a man who used to be world number four. We wonder if it is the last time we will see Davydenko live.
