Yesterday, after the defeat in the match with Feliciano Lopez at the U.S. Open, Mardy Fish retired from his professional tennis activity. Born on December 9, 1981 in Edina, Minnesota, USA, during his career he won a numbero of tournaments and has been in the Top 10 of the ATP ranking. A cardiac arrhythmia and especially an anxiety disorder stopped him in recent year, so much that during this summer he decided to retire.

The tennis player Nick Kyrgios has been imposed by the ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) a 28-day ban and a $25,000 fine for his offense against Stan Wawrinka on August 13 during their match in the tournament in Montreal. This punishment has a conditional suspension, which means that will be enforced if over the next six months he gets punished again for physical and verbal abuses or if he accumulates fines to $5,000.
