Fish ready to return



“I know in the back of my mind that the tour’s not going anywhere,” Fish said. “The more time that goes by, the better I’ll feel.”

He can lean on the experience of successfully coming back from injuries in the past, and Fish even finds a positive in this absence. The last 10 months have put little wear and tear on his body, so perhaps that will lengthen his career. Fish optimistically mentioned Tommy Haas, who is ranked No. 11 at age 35 after missing significant stretches because of injuries.

Fish said he would eventually reveal more about his struggles, hoping to help others who have faced similar trials.

“I’ve done all the right things to put myself in position to come back,” he said. “I’m ready to do it.”
