Delray Beach Champ Swears With McEnroe-esque Gusto

You know what really pisses off Mardy Fish, winner of yesterday's Delray Beach Championship final? When his opponent takes a 20-minute break before Fish's serve. He believes this is "bush league" and "bullshit" and if anyone tries it, Fish will "beat his fucking ass." Or so he said in a match this past December, which featured more explicit lyrics than yesterday's final.

Fish, currently ranked 21st in the world, was also the tournament's first seed. It was the first ATP final for Evgeny Korolev, whose claim to fame remains that his cousin is Anna Kournikova.
