Mardy Fish has been able to win the Atlanta Tennis Championships after saving two match points. Mardy won 3-6 7-6 6-2 to take the title.
Fish was down 5-1 in the tiebreaker and saved two match points to come back and win the title in three sets.
“When you’re in that position, it’s almost over,” Fish said. “I was lucky to get out of it. I played some good points. I don’t think he missed any first serves there. I stuck some returns and put some balls in play.”
“I didn’t necessarily change anything tactically,” Fish said. “I took care of my serve games a little bit better once I lost serve in the first game of the second.”
Matthew Ebden of Australia won his second straight doubles title, teaming this week with Alex Bogomolov Jr., in a 3-6, 7-5, 10-8 super-tiebreaker victory over Matthias Bachinger and Frank Moser of Germany.
