This Guess Was a Double-Fault

That's M-A-R-D-Y.
Who is Marty the Fishboy?

Did you select A: a professional tennis player about to break into the Top 10? 

If so, I'm sorry to tell you that you are incorrect! 

Although American Mardy (with a D) Fish has an Olympic silver medal and is sometimes called "The Fishmonger" or "The Fisherman" -- "The Fishboy" is not one of his usual appellations. In the latest world rankings, Fish has risen to No. 11. 

Of course, men's tennis has lost a bit of its luster from the days of John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors -- the biggest controversy, it seems, with Mardy Fish is that he recently started wearing longer socks... the horror! -- so Fish is hardly a household name. 

In fact, you've probably seen more of his wife on your TV screen, as she was the keeper of "Suitcase No. 2" on Deal or No Deal.

One choice down... still no deal! 

More to come...
