Mardy Fish handed first-round loss to Dudi Sela in Atlanta

Jul 28, 2015, 6:48 PM

ATLANTA (AP) — The first stop of Mardy Fish’s farewell tour ended quickly with a 6-4, 6-4 first-round loss to Dudi Sela in the Atlanta Open on Tuesday night.

Fish said it was a success just to play only his second competitive match of the year. He recently announced he will retire after the U.S. Open, and he also disclosed details of his battles with anxiety disorder.

Fish, who won the Atlanta tournament in 2010 and 2011, also will play doubles this week with his friend Andy Roddick, who is taking a break from his retirement.

The 33-year-old Fish says he wished he could have played better but added “It’s just nice to finish on my own terms.”

Fish also plans to play in Cincinnati before the U.S. Open.
