In similar news, American Mardy Fish dropped 30 pounds a year ago and has finally become the best American player, supplanting Andy Roddick. And, he's 29 (practically a mummy in tennis years). While Andy is one unstable loose cannon, I respect all his accomplishments and his work ethic. He's been nothing but consistent the past decade. And he rarely receives the accolades he deserves (partly b/c Pete and Andre set such a high bar the decade prior). Nevertheless, I'm thrilled for Mardy, a career journeyman who's discipline catapulted him into the top 10 (if he wins tomorrow).
Oh, and in case you didn't notice - baseball stars today. Ya, neither did I. Number 1 out 162. Damn, their season is too long.
