Fish ‘Absolutely, Absolutely’ Confident He Can Beat Nadal

l mardyfish 0 Fish Absolutely, Absolutely Confident He Can Beat NadalMardy Fish has the biggest match of his career later tonight against Rafael Nadal. When asked about it on Monday in a press conference, he said Rafa might be afraid of him.

"Absolutely, absolutely," he said in a briefer when asked if he was confident. "I feel like a guy with my style of play is someone that [Nadal] doesn’t want to see."

The way Fish plays–lightning quick, serve-and-volley tennis–is what he feels is his greatest weapon.

"You got to be able to finish points quickly. [Nadal] is going to last longer than anybody.He wants to keep points as long as possible and run the guys down, kind of body blow after body blow."

But he won’t happen to him.

"I don’t intend to let him do that. You know, I’m going to come in and I’m going to, you know, not necessarily a Kamikaze-type tennis, but I’m going to try to keep the points as short as possible."
