Fish pulls out of San Jose with heart problems
Mardy Fish has pulled out of the SAP Open in San Jose due to ongoing heart issues, the tournament reported. The Feb. 11-17 event was supposed to be the 30-year-old’s first tournament since he pulled out of his fourth-round match against Roger Federer at last year’s U.S. Open.
Fish is currently serving as a hitting partner for the U.S. Davis Cup team as it prepares for its first-round tie against Brazil in Jacksonville this weekend. Fish’s agent, John Tobias, said that Fish would attempt to return to action at the Memphis tournament, which begins on February 18.
