NEW YORK (AP) Mardy Fish's last U.S. Open memory will be of the Louis Armstrong Stadium crowd roaring for him.

Failing to serve out the match, his legs cramping badly at the end - those details are less important than the fact he was there, playing all out and pushing a top-20 player to the limit.
