Fish reels in Melzer to take US Clay Court title
HOUSTON, Apr 16 (Reuters) American Mardy Fish captured the US Men's Clay Court Championships today after beating Austrian Juergen Melzer 3-6 6-4 6-3 in the battle of the unseeded players.
The 212th ranked Fish lost the first set and was down in the second before he broke Melzer's serve to begin a comeback that ended with his victory on the red clay courts at Houston's Westside Tennis Club.
''This has been an incredible week for me. I definitely didn't expect to be standing here in front of this trophy,'' said Fish, who was injured much of last year.
