Top-ranked American Mardy Fish in Farmers Classic field

June 8, 2011 |  3:18 pm


Mardy Fish, the 31-year-old American who lives in Beverly Hills, has joined the field for the Farmers  Classic tennis tournament that will take place July 25-31 at UCLA's Los Angeles Tennis Center.

Fish will join defending champion Sam Querrey, who is from Thousand Oaks, and 2009 U.S. Open winner Juan Martin del Potro at the ATP event.

Fish has a career-high computer ranking of No. 9 in the world. He moved ahead of Andy Roddick after Roddick missed the French Open with a shoulder injury. Fish has won two tournaments this season and made the finals of two more. His best finish in Los Angeles, though, was a semifinal performance in 2008.
