During his match against Mardy Fish, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga became frustrated after a missed forehand and decided to take that frustration out on the tennis ball. In the end, Jo-Willy won the match 6-4, 7-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-2 so I guess that little fuzzy ball did a body good! Enjoy!

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.
Can you find Mardy and Andrea in this picture?
When do you ever get the chance to break something without getting in trouble for it!!! Well, at 9:16 am on Friday, August 26th, I was one of the 658 people, including Andrea Petkovic and Mardy Fish, who broke the Guinness World Record for the "
Mardy Fish was featured today on an Olympus US Open Series conference call, and below are some highlights from the interview where he talks about being the Number 1 American, Ryan Harrison's temper, and his injured heel:
If you thought Maria Sharapova's ring was huge, take a look at Sania Mirza's wedding ring. It's so big it should have it's own solar system! Even Mardy Fish (who tweeted this picture) was impressed:
I clearly need to marry one too!
It's been a long time, but tomorrow we may have a new #1 ranked American, Mardy Fish. It won't come easy, he will first have to make it past the feisty David Ferrer, but just the thought of someone being at the top of American tennis that is NOT named Andy Roddick is just plain odd, and I think Mardy feels that way too.
Yesterday Mardy Fish, Thomas Berdych, Vania Kina, Potito Starace, and Ivan Ljubicic swam with the dolphins at the Dolphin Harbor before starting the business end of their week at the Sony Ericsson Open.
Per the Sony Ericsson Open website:
The players enjoyed a 30-minute interaction with a pair of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins that included a ride across the pool, a kiss and a feeding opportunity. The session ended with a group photo with the dolphins jumping in the background. "It was awesome," said King, who lives up the road in Boynton Beach. "I had such a great time." Fish's wife, Deal or No Deal suitcase model Stacey Gardner, was among several family members and coaches who also participated.
