Mardy Fish is right on the doorstep of his first ATP World Tour Finals qualification.

“It would mean a lot,” said Fish of playing in London. “I’ve never been in this situation before and from what I hear, everything at the O2 Arena, everything that has to do with the World Tour Finals is pretty amazing.

“And I’d love to experience it for myself. Not only for myself, but there’s a lot of people behind me who have put a lot of work in, you know, pretty emotionally and physically invested in my results and friends and family and coaches and trainers and things like that, so they are the ones I want to do it for as well.”

Fish, who is also trying to keep an American in the year-end Top 10, says he’s recovered from a hamstring injury last week, and he hopes to keep the second half momentum going.

If Fish reaches the quarterfinals in Paris he’ll qualify. The 29-year-old No. 7 seed will play Florian Mayer tomorrow then Simon or the Young-Monaco winner on Thursday. Fish is in the No. 8 spot in the 2011 Race points, a hefty 505 points ahead of No. 9 Nicolas Almagro.
