Mardy Fish, who on Sunday played and won his first match since the third round of the 2012 U.S. Open, says he has not planned his season beyond the tournament in Miami, which begins in a little more than in a week’s time. The 31-year-old American, who has been experiencing heart trouble and anxiety issues, told reporters that he is planning to play Miami and then will assess the clay-court season. He says he has not ruled out retirement, mentioning again that last fall, when he rarely left his house, that he had already retired in his head on a number of occasions.

“Maybe step back and see how I feel, see where I am personally, see if, after these two weeks if it's something that I can still do at a high level,” he said.

“That [retirement] will certainly be a question I'll ask. But hopefully I'll resume sort of a normal schedule.  We'll see.”
