  • Fish beats Goffin, into second week at Wimbledon

    6/30/12 7:51 PM | Ricky Dimon
    Mardy Fish edges David Goffin in three tight sets on Saturday during Wimbledon third-round action. Fish will go up against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Monday.

    Mardy Fish may be the No. 10 seed at Wimbledon, but based on his recent struggles a run to the fourth round constitutes a real surprise and a huge success. Fish made it happen by taking out David Goffin 6-4, 7-6(6), 7-6(6) in two hours and 16 minutes on Saturday afternoon.

    The American had been out since Houston due to a heart issue and had not won a match since Miami prior to this fortnight. But he clearly gained confidence after a three-set win over Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo and a five-setter over James Ward.

    Fish saved his best tennis for an in-form Goffin, who reached the fourth round of the French Open and took a set off Roger Federer. The 30-year-old fired 17 aces compared to only one double-fault and he won 89 percent of his first-serve points while holding every single time.

    Goffin played another rock-solid match, striking 35 winners to a mere seven unforced errors. The 21-year-old Belgian, however, simply did not have enough firepower with which to hurt Fish and he could not get the job done on big points. Goffin failed to maintain a 4-1 lead in the third-set tiebreaker, which proved to be his final undoing.

    Fish will battle Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Monday for a quarterfinal spot. Tsonga rolled over Lukas Lacko 6-4, 6-3, 6-3.

Congrats to fish fans, unfortunate for David. I thought he would take it to Fish, but still requires the experience (live and learn) looks like. Didn't get to see the match, but sounds pretty close at 2 tiebreaks. Wimbledon was a great added experience for David. Once he learns how to unleash more of that natural talent of his watch OUT! Power shot would be nice David. No doubt in my mind David Goffin will be stronger soon.
