Former Top 10 Mardy Fish officially announced on twitter yesterday that his last event will be the US Open.
“My schedule this summer will be Atlanta, Cincinnati, and I will finish my career at the US Open. #lastride”, he posted on the social networking site.
The 33-year-old who has been dealing with a heart issue since 2012, will join Andy Roddick in the doubles competition next week in Atlanta, then play Cincinnati and the US Open where he is entered in the singles through a ranking protection.
“I’d love to go back to the US Open where sort of it all came crashing down for me in 2012, sort of conquer that place,” Fish said last month. “By ‘conquer’ I mean just get back out on the court there. I have a lot of demons from that place.”
Born and raised in Minnesota, Fish reached a career-high No. 7 in August of 2011. He won 6 ATP titles and made the quarterfinals at three of the four Grand Slams. He also won the silver medal at the 2004 Olympic games. Fish has a 300-216 career record.
Over the weekend, Fish finished fourth in the Lake Tahoe celebrity golf event.
