U.S. tennis star undergoes heart procedure

From Comcast SportsNet
American tennis player Mardy Fish recently had a medical procedure to correct a heart problem. Fish hasn't played since late March after being diagnosed with fatigue. He told USA Today he had a procedure called cardiac catheter ablation on Wednesday to deal with misfiring electrical pulses in his heart. He is recovering at his home in Los Angeles. "It has been so scary," Fish told the newspaper for a story posted in its web site Monday. Fish, who at No. 10 is the highest-ranked American on the ATP Tour, told USA Today that at times he would wake up with his heart racing as if he'd been running sprints. "It felt like my heart was going to jump out of my chest," he said. Doctors described his condition as a form arrhythmia. It started afflicting him in February, he said. Fish said he can resume light training soon and hopes to play at the grass-court tune-up for Wimbledon that begins June 11. He said withdrawing with the explanation of fatigue bothered him. "It's kind of a ugly word for me because I've worked so hard the last three years to get that stigma off my name," the 6-foot-2 right-hander told USA Today. Fish said he kept his condition quiet until he had a better understanding of it.

Steph Curry goes on rant over how Celtics-in-Finals comments were interpreted

Steph Curry goes on rant over how Celtics-in-Finals comments were interpreted

Stephen Curry wasn't taking the bait this time. Instead, he decided to fight back.

After the Warriors erased a 22-point halftime deficit to stun the 76ers in Philadelphia on Saturday, a reported tried to get Curry to talk about a possible NBA Finals matchup with the 76ers just like he had after Thursday's game against the Celtics. It didn't go well for the reporter. Curry wasn't having it.

"Hot takes. You can literally take one line of what I said and and say ‘very, very likely.’ Read the whole comment. I hate when that happens. I stand up here and talk for 45 seconds about that question and you want to take five words that put the Boston Celtics in the Finals. That’s the hype beast. I’ll be more specific next time about how I see the futures that surrounds who’s going to be in the Finals, even us. Whatever," Curry said.

A different reporter asked Curry if the situation frustrated him.

"Yeah, it did because, obviously, it was a question about Boston’s chances and how well they’ve been playing. I literally said they have to beat Cleveland because Cleveland has been there three times in a row. Obviously I made a joke because I haven’t been in Boston in the summer in a while. Probably nice weather. But the video is going crazy, so watch the whole video, watch the whole comment and you’ll get it right," Curry said before leaving the gathering of reporters.
