Cincinnati, U.S.A.

Fish© ATPMardy Fish threw out the first pitch ahead of his Cincinnati campaign.

Baseball fan Mardy Fish threw out the first pitch at the Cincinnati Reds-San Diego Padres game at the Great American Ballpark in downtown Cincinnati on Saturday. The American is in town ready for the Western & Southern Open, which begins on Sunday.

“I played a lot of sports growing up. I played a little baseball until I was 14 or so. I was born in Minnesota so I'm a huge Twins fan. I know a couple of guys on the team, so I root for them,” said Fish.

The 31-year-old Fish is a two-time former finalist at this ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event, finishing runner-up to Andy Roddick in 2003 and Roger Federer in 2010. He is playing just his fourth tour-level tournament of the season, having been sidelined with heart trouble.

“I'm excited to be back in Cincinnati,” said Fish. “I have a lot of good memories here. It's one of my favourite tournaments and one of my most successful events.”
