Mardy Fish defeated World No. 2 Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-4 in the quarterfinals of the Cincinnati Masters, clinching the No.1 spot in the US Open Series.
“I have beaten a lot of good players over the years and been in the top-10 for a while now. I wanted to cement myself in the top-10 and feeling I belong — that it wasn’t just a spurt. It kind of solidifies it today,” Fish said after the win.
Fish will face Andy Murray next in the semifinals, who he holds a winning 4-3 record against.
