Fish keeps American flag flying

LONDON: Mardy Fish kept the US flag flying at Wimbledon on Monday by beating last year’s runner-up Tomas Berdych 7-6, 6-4, 6-4 to book a quarterfinal place as the other American survivors exited the tournament. Tenth seed Fish edged a first-set tiebreak 7-5 before pulling away from the Czech sixth seed to set up a last-eight clash with defending champion Rafael Nadal. Compatriots Serena and Venus Williams were bundled out of the women’s draw earlier on Monday before Fish chalked up 23 aces and signed off with an emphatic smash. “It’s not what you set out to do. Being the highest-ranked American, I guess on both sides now, comes a pretty high responsibility,” the world number nine told reporters. (Agencies)
