Amid all the gloom and despair that COVID-19 has pushed us into, it is vital we have a few hearty laughs now and then. We need to keep our spirits up as we go through this troubling time together but in isolation.

Fish turned his fondness for Roger Federer into another comical episode for us all to enjoy.

Between 2003 and 2012, Roger Federer came up against the American on nine different occasions. It is not too surprising to know that a prime Roger absolutely dominated the rivalry between the pair.

However, Fish did manage to record a victory over the Swiss great in 2008. That solitary win came in a crucial match too- at the 2008 Indian Wells semi-finals, which Mardy won in straight sets!

Unfortunately for the American, he lost to Novak Djokovic in the final, although he gave the Serb a run for his money.

Coming back to the present day, the situation with the COVID-19 remains delicate. The global cases are currently still on the rise, which puts the tennis season in danger of being suspended for even longer than now.

Roger Federer, born a gentle soul, is doing his part in helping out the community during these worrisome times. He donated a significant sum of one million Swiss francs a couple of days back to combat the growing threat of coronavirus.

If all things go to plan, Roger will return for the grass swing of the season. As things stand, the Tour s scheduled to return just as the grass season takes off. Let’s hope we do get some tennis soon.
