Mardy Fish might want to add stockbroker to his post-tennis career plans after assisting in ringing the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday, preceding a strong bounce back day on Wall Street.
Fish is making his final appearance at the US Open before hanging up his racquet. The American stalwart is contesting his 15th main draw at his home Grand Slam. He owns a 25-14 tournament record, including a quarter-final finish in 2008 (l. to Nadal).
Fish opened a strong day for the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which proceeded to recover following its early-week plunge, soaring 619.07 points. He was joined by WTA player Svetlana Kuznetsova and USTA president Katrina Adams.
