NEW YORK (AP) — American Mardy Fish has advanced to the third round of the US Open with a 7-5, 6-0, 6-2 victory over Uruguay’s Pablo Cuevas.
The 19th-seeded Fish finished third in this year’s U.S. Open Series and would make a $250,000 bonus if he wins the US Open.
With Andy Roddick eliminated in a match late Wednesday night, Fish joins No. 18 John Isner and No. 20 Sam Querrey as the highest-ranked American men left in the tournament.
Fish served 14 aces en route to a victory that took 2 hours.
