(16) Mardy Fish
- DOB: 09/12/1981
- Nationality: USA
- Became Pro: 2000
- Height: 1.88
The American surged up the rankings to a career-high of 16 in the second half of last season thanks to a string of impressive results.
Fish won titles in Newport and Atlanta in his homeland before reaching the final of the Cincinnati Masters, where he beat Andy Murray and Andy Roddick, before losing a closely-fought final to Roger Federer.
When his first serve is firing as it did for much of last summer, Fish is tough to beat and he will now be looking to improve his record at the Australian Open for only once has he made the second week, reaching the last eight in 2007.
Look out for some bad puns scrawled on banners during his matches in Melbourne.
