    This sounded like a good article until it said "perhaps no american is playing better now than Mardy Fish". Excuse me? Since April his only win against a player with a ranking above 100 was his win over Ginerpri in Wimbledon first round. He might have a good hardcourt season, but in a head to head you gotta take Blake, Agassi, or even Roddick over him.

    ^I agree. Fish came out of nowhere to win ATP Houston Claycourt and then a grass court challenger. Seemed like he was gaining momentum and then got taken out without a huge struggle by Nadal in Queens. No one at that time realize that Nadal was tough on Grass, including myself as i thought fish would fillet him. I thought maybe it was a fluke and that Fish would right the ship at Wimby, but then he pulls a mini henin (not a final) and retires.

    So saying that Fish is the best yank playing right now may be a little over the top but i'm willing to bet that he has a respectable year from here on out.
