2004 Davis Cup Final Round


Carlos Moya v Mardy Fish

6-4, 6-2, 6-3



Moya fell behind 3-0 but came back by  breaking Fish's serve twice to take the first set in 40 minutes. Moya broke Fish again to open second set, setting the tone as he swept through the match in straight sets in 1 hour, 57 minutes. Moya was thrown off by the power and high bounce from the topspin of the American.  But Moya was able to adjust his game and get back on track with his own powerful forehand and serve.

The atmosphere was tremendous as the fans rooted and cheered for their countryman and even had a drum section to pump up their favorite. ``I started great and I would like to have played like that the entire match,'' said Fish, who had played only one match on clay before Friday.

``I tried everything. I tried serving and volleying, I'd tried coming in on a lot of balls, I tried to stay back and he had answers,'' he added. ``I had some chances and he served a few of those chances away. You have to tip your hat to him.'' ***
