Stricken American Mardy Fish is expected back on court this month in a lightweight pay-for-play exhibition in tennis-starved Singapore as part of a Clash of the Continents, another hit-and giggle nbightr providing almost steady employment employment for players during the ATP “off season.”

 

The November 24-25 event at the city-state’s indoor stadium which once hosted an ATP event more than a decade ago, will feature a four-man field plus a women’s one-exhibition tagged on as a sweetener for fans.,

 

In that contest Slovak Daniela Hantuchova will face China’s Peng Shuai.

 

In the men’s competition, Fish, who has not played for months due to a heart scare, will be up against rivals including Japan’s rising son Kei Nishikori, now a solid member of the top 20 after winning his home Japan Open last month.

 

Representing South America will be Argentine Juan Monaco while Serb Janko Tipsarevic will carry out playing “duties” for Europe.

 

Fish, 30, has not played since the US Open, when he quit before his fourth-round match with Roger Federer while complaining of more health issues.

In the first few games of this, it seemed as if Roger Federer was really struggling to deal with Samuel Groth's serve. True, Federer was having no trouble at all on his own (except for a bad moment in the third set when he was broken) -- but he didn't really seem like Roger Federer. Nonetheless, he keeps alive his faint hopes of rising to #2.

Has the bottom half of the Open draw been taken over by aliens or something? First Agnieszka Radwanska, now this. Admittedly Simona Halep gives the impression of being primarily a traditional-surface player. But Mirjana Lucic-Baroni has always preferred clay and grass, too -- and she just barely beat Shahar Peer.
