Mardy Fish Goes Down at Wimbledon

UPDATE 2:12: Game, set, match. Sad-face. Fish has now made three Grand Slam quarterfinals and lost all three—two to the magnificent Nadal. No shame in that.

UPDATE 2:08: Fish holds. Nadal serves up 5-4.

UPDATE 2:04: Nadal held. Fish is serving down 5-3; he can’t lose another game this set.

UPDATE 2:00: After easily holding his own serve, Nadal lost in an epic 14-point game. Nadal now serves up 4-3, so Fish is still in trouble; he needs to hold his serves and break Nadal’s, and he will only have one or two more chances to do that. Down but not out.

UPDATE 1:44: Each held serve, Nadal serving up 3-2. Fish has to break him at some point.

UPDATE 1:38: Nadal broke Fish’s serve in the third game of the fourth set, now serving up 2-1. Not good.

UPDATE 1:24: Fish took the third set! Nadal is now up two sets to one. Nadal should have beaten Fish in straight sets; that he didn’t is not-entirely-implausible grounds for hope.

12:32: Turn on your television (or go here) to follow the quarterfinals match between Mardy Fish, an American Jew, and number-one-ranked Rafael Nadal at the All England Club. Nadal took the first two sets, but they are breaking each other’s serves, and Fisher has eight aces to Nadal’s two, so we may have something of a ballgame here. Maybe? Hopefully? Winner plays Andy Murray. Anyway, go watch.

Well, Nadal is Majorcan, Majorca has an old Jewish history, so maybe he has a little ancestry. I’m afraid that may be the only way the gang is going to advance.

Fish isn’t Jewish, Marc Tracy.

Maybe you should spend more time doing research and less time learning terms like “outer borough ethnics”.

In this article from my own research I have found the basic tips to keeping your Beta fish alive as long as you can. It is important that each and every Beta fish owner read and recognize these needs. The tips in this article are critical to your Betta’s lifespan. And they all do play an important roll in increasing their lifespan.

Well simply Nadal was at the peak of his powers. Pretty Difficult for anybody to compete at that stage.
