Another American bit the dust at the 2010 U.S. Open Monday. Sigh. First it was Andy Roddick, then John Isner, now Mardy Fish, who fell to No. 3 Novak Djokovic, 6-3, 6-4, 6-1. Djokovic moves on to the quarterfinals, where he'll face Gael Monfils.
Djokovic needed only 110 minutes to dispatch of Fish, whose normally big serve didn't seem to do much damage to the swift Djokovic. Djokovic converted 6 of 8 break-point chances, steamrolling the listless American. It's a sad end to a great summer for Fish, who as SI points out, has gone 19-3 in his last 22 matches.
