The 2012 French Open will not feature a Minnesotan, unfortunately, as Edina native Mardy Fish has pulled out due to fatigue.
Mardy Fish is one of the top American tennis players and certainly one of the best from the lovely state of Minnesota as he's a native of Edina. Unfortunately Fish won't take part in the 2012 French Open, however, as he continues to heal up from an injury that's kept him out of action for over a month.
It's unclear exactly what's ailing Fish at the moment, but the Associated Press says "fatigue will keep Fish out of this week's Grand Slam event.
Tenth-ranked Mardy Fish and women's No. 16 Andrea Petkovic are among several players who pulled out of the upcoming French Open on Monday.
Fish has not played a match for more than a month and organizers said the big-serving American has fatigue. Petkovic of Germany has a right ankle problem. They are being replaced by Canada's Frank Dancevic and Lesia Tsurenko of Ukraine.
That's unfortunate about Fish, but hopefully the former Minnesota resident is able to get over his issues and get back on the tennis courts.
