Mardy Fish has withdrawn his name from the upcoming AEGON Championships because of a viral flu. It’s not certain whether he will be taking part in the Wimbledon Championships which are going to start after a few days.
Fish has not played much tennis after the US Open last year because of his heart issues. He missed the initial parts of the ongoing season, then, he came back to take part in the Indian Wells.
After making his comeback in that tournament in March, Fish had said, “The last few months were very tough for me. It’s hard to express in words what I went through. But, I am glad that everything is alright now. I am looking to play some good tennis in the rest of the season.”
But, Fish got unwell again after that event and remained out for a few weeks. He was then given the wild card entry in the Tallahassee Tennis Challenger, but, he didn’t play in that tournament because of some personal problems.
After that, Fish was supposed to participate in the French Open, but, he withdrew his name from that tournament as well. So, he didn’t play even one match in the clay court season and now, he has skipped the first tournament of the grass court season as well.
Meanwhile, Fish’s compatriot Brian Baker has made it clear that he will not be taking part in the Wimbledon Championships. Baker hadn’t participated in French Open either. The 28 years old American player had injured his knee while playing in the Australian Open earlier this year. He went through the surgery after that and he hasn’t yet completely recovered. So, he has decided to withdraw from Wimbledon Championships.
The Wimbledon Championships are going to start from 24th of June.
