Mardy Fish: Runner Up in the Rogers Cup Montreal
The picture above will most likely be replicated in the upcoming US Open this year, and it would really be fantastic if Mardy Fish (#7) would be able to win in home soil. I think it's been a long time that a champion of a Grand Slam has come from the home soil! And the good thing is, Mardy Fish is poised to do just that with his fantastic form in this year's hard court season.
Well, for the Montreal Rogers Cup, he had to settle for runner up to eventual champion and main rival, Novak Djokovic (#1). I won't be surprised if they meet again in the Cincinnati final in a day or two. I hope Mardy trumps Novak there. That would at least help him mentally.
This was his path to the finals of Montreal -
Finals: lost to Novak Djokovic (SRB) (#1) 26 63 46
Semi's: won over Janko Tipsarevic (SRB) (#24) 63 64
Quarters: won over Stanislas Wawrinka (SUI) (#17) 63 67(8) 60
3R: won over Ernests Gulbis (LAT) (#55) 36 63 64
2R: won over Feliciano Lopez (ESP) (#25) 62 63
