Mardy Fish, the top ranked American player, broke into the top 10 this year for the first time in his career. He is one of the best hot weather players next to Novak Djokovic and David Ferrer. Typically, it gets very hot at the US Open.
Fish has gotten off to a good start this year winning Atlanta Tennis Championships as well as making the Los Angeles International Tennis Open finals. He is playing his best tennis ever and is looking to peak at this year's Open.
Fish has reinvented himself after more then 10 years on the tour. He is determined to play the game his way, aggressive. Mardy can do things other contemporary players cannot. He serves well, rushes the net, plays back and most important, he is a consistent player.
Fish has what it takes to win a major. His skill and consistency make him dangerous. Mardy now has the confidence to believe he can win a major. If he can go the distance in a best of five, two week tournament, there is no reason Fish won't make the finals.
