Mardy Fish withdrew from Wimbledon, according to USA Today. Fish , 31, has struggled to get back on the tour after experiencing complications from a heart problem last year. He has played just three matches since withdrawing from last year's U.S. Open quarterfinal as a precautionary measure after being diagnosed with a heart arrhythmia earlier that year.

Fish, the third-ranked American at No. 43, made the round of 16 at Wimbledon last year, losing to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-4, 6-4 in a rain-suspended match that saw Tsonga win all three sets when play resumed the next day.

The news follows a report from Tennis.com that Fish informed the Atlanta Open that the tournament would be his first ATP-level event since the BNP Paribas Open in March.
