My husband suffers from atrial fibrillation and I have great admiration for the way Mardy has fought his ill health and his demons to return to the tour. My very best wishes go out to him and I hope he continues to play.With Fish back maybe the US Davis Cup will have a chance next year.

FishNearly 19 months since he last competed on the ATP World Tour, Mardy Fish is back. For Fish, adversity wasn’t a challenge to overcome to resume his career. It was necessary to survive.

This is not a story about a comeback from injury. It is not a tale of a former Top 10 player’s quest to resurrect a once-thriving career.

No, this narrative runs much deeper. This is a story of reclaiming a life; a player’s road to personal triumph where others may have surrendered.
