Finally(?) We Can Get Excited About Tennis

http://www.jewishjournal.com/blog/item/finally_we_can_get_excited_about_tennis_39110628/

A recent wikipedia page sent in by TGR fan Nat Sager, claims that ATPer Mardy Fish got married in a Jewish wedding ceremony. Now this does not mean Fish is 100% Jewish. He married a Deal or No Deal model Stacey Gardner, who could also be Jewish. Only one Jewish site or magazine, Tablet Magazine, claims that Fish is in fact Jewish (Click HERE to read). Tablet is a solid source so for now we are claiming him as Jew.

So why does anyone care?

Well, Fish has advanced to the quarterfinals in Wimbledon and will face Rafael Nadal. Also, by playing well at Wimbledon he passes good friend Andy Roddick as the #1 ranked American and moves into 9th ranked overall.

Tennis fans have craved a solid Jewish singles men’s player and now they got one. With Shahar Peer and Fish, every tournament gives the Jews a solid chance at a trophy.

Big news for the Jews.
And Let Us Say…Amen.
