Mardy Fish, Desperado, Cruises to the Quarters

You’ve gotta love the Americans’ love for the U.S. Open. Mardy Fish, with his best Grand Slam ever, just beat Gael Monfils 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 in a flawless match. Asked on the court after his match how much he wanted to win here, he said, “I desperately wanted to do well here. Desperately.”

Winner of Rafa-Querrey up next for Fish in the quarters.
