Ann Liguori chats with Mardy Fish, the U.S. Davis Cup tennis captain who takes a good-natured verbal backhand about his three runner-up finishes in the American Century Championship. Like the world-class competitor that he is, Fish calls his shot and ultimately wins the celebrity event Sunday at Edgewood Tahoe South. Hear who labeled Fish’s golf game the “best he’s seen from a non-professional golfer”; what Fish brings from his tennis game, which produced six victories on the ATP Tour, to golf; why he pursued a professional tennis career rather than a pro golf career; his attempts to qualify for the U.S. Open in golf; and what he thinks about a U.S. Open tennis championship without spectators.
