Playing his first match since having a medical procedure on his heart, 10th-seeded Mardy Fish of the United States hit 24 aces and beat Ruben Ramirez-Hidalgo of Spain 7-6 (3), 7-5, 7-6 (1) at Wimbledon on Tuesday to reach the second round.
The 30-year-old Fish hadn't played a competitive match in 2½ months after having an accelerated heartbeat. In May, doctors induced extreme palpitations to try to pinpoint where the problem was.
Fish reached the quarterfinals at Wimbledon last year, his best showing at the grass-court tournament.
