Mardy Fish bows out of U.S. Open


Edina native Mardy Fish has withdrawn from the U.S. Open tennis tournament, which is set to begin next week.

The former top-10 player pulled out for health reasons, according to the Associated Press.

Fish, 31, has been trying to make a comeback on the pro tennis tour after battling heart problems the past few years.

But for now, that comeback has been halted again. On Fish's Twitter feed today:

Last year, Fish reached the fourth round of the U.S. Open, but dropped out on doctor's orders. Earlier in 2012, he missed several weeks of the season due to an accelerated heartbeat.

Fish, who now lives in Los Angeles, reached a career-best ranking of No. 7 in 2011. This week, he's ranked 173rd worldwide.
