With all of the great stories coursing through men's tennis these days, it would be easy to overlook the tale of Mardy Fish. Yet here he is, staring at his 30th birthday in December and he's just attained his career-high ranking of #7. He is, shockingly, the highest ranked American in men's tennis. Apparently improved physical fitness has been the key to his late-career surge. He's never been past the quarters at the US Open but he's in top form right now. This could be his last good shot at a deeper run.
