Mardy Fish secured his 300th career match victory on Sunday night, reaching the second round of the Winston-Salem Open with a 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 victory over Evgeny Donskoy.
Fish, who received a wild card into the main draw, needed eight minutes to win the first two games but cruised through the rest of the first set before dropping the second. The American then broke quickly in the third to finish the match in commanding fashion.
The win also improved Fish's season record to 4-4. The former No. 7 has played sparingly this year after missing four months last season when he was diagnosed with heart problems.
"It’s a whole new level," Bogaerts said. "I mean, it’s against a better player. It’s more pressure. Everything is different. But it was a great experience to get to play in a big stadium against a great player, and now I’ve done it, so I’ll be ready for the next time."
Fish will meet fellow veteran and 11th seed Jarkko Nieminen in the next round.
