He lost first round. My friend said he saw Fish apparently doing similar things to tanking after being fed up with waiting hours and hours for rain to clear. He was apparently hitting balls flat out with a continental grip. Anyone else heard anything about his loss?

Fish sucks and he got worse when he made the switch away from Tournagrip. He repeatedly can't hold onto the racquet.. .too bad he's forced to use inferior equipment due to his contracts.

I read an article, said he has a knee injury and the rain delays did him in. Said the warm up, cool down, warm up, cool down made his knee hurt worse. Maybe just an excuse though.

Fish is going to become a doubles specialist, now that he's pairing up with a doubles specialist, I forgot his name. Fish's got a good serve, good return off one wing, good volleying, and he can hide his lack of mobility and forehand and poor conditioning on the doubles court. He ranked about 20 in doubles last year despite playing part-time. Other than Federer or Stepanek, I can't think of any singles player who is as good at doubles.

Hehe completely unintentional to combine the words 'fish' and 'tanking' in the same post :D. My favourite was that one someone wrote the other day when Pat Cash beat Lendl:

Cash beats Czech.

That's not my favourite. That final will haunt me forever as a Lendl fan ;)

As for fish - disappointing, though saw photos and it looks like he came in rather fit, that said, bodyfat is irrelevant if the knee doesn't work. And I can empathise with him, the local sat arvo comp involves going on and off over and over, and my shoulder hates it....

I read that too. Makes sense. Wish I'd known his knees were that bad before I picked him to upset Ljub in the 2nd round - d'oh!

Flattered that you're using my quote... glad someone liked it.
