The Davis Cup team announced Tuesday includes Fish, John Isner and top-ranked doubles partners Bob and Mike Bryan. The tie will be played on red clay April 6-8 at the Monte Carlo Country Club in Roquebrune Cap Martin, France.
He skipped the Games four years ago and may do so again, citing the schedule as the reason.
“Scheduling, yeah _ staying closer to home, playing tournaments that I’m comfortable in,” Fish said. “I haven’t decided yet.”
Fish is the highest-ranked American on the men’s tour at No. 8. He arrived at Key Biscayne with a disappointing 4-4 record this year but earned his first quarterfinal berth since October by beating Nicolas Almagro 6-3, 6-7 (2), 6-3.
“Mardy is feeling a lot better having won a couple of matches,” Davis Cup captain Jim Courier said. “He has gotten himself back on track, and he is fighting and competing and grinding. He’s not playing his best tennis yet, but he’s playing a lot better.”
“Everyone keeps playing us on clay, and we keep winning on clay,” Fish said. “Any team that we play, they’ve got to beat Isner both times, they’ve got to beat the Bryans, and they’ve got to beat me. We have a good team right now.”View Entire Story
