Mardy Fish, the 29 year-old American tennis pro, currently enjoying his career high #15  ATP rank, is looking for more than a chance at the Sony Ericsson Open title as he continues his tournament play.  After beating Richard Gasquet in the third round at Key Biscayne, Mardy Fish put himself in the position to overtake #8 Andy Roddick if Fish can win the next two rounds in Miami.  Roddick has been the top American for the past eight years, but his ranking is anticipated to slip to 15th after losing to 67th ranked Argentinian Pablo Cuevas in Roddick’s opening match.

Fish’s next matchup is against Juan Del Potro (who just beat #4 Robin Soderling).  The winner of that will likely play the Spaniard David Ferrer in the following round.
