WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -Mardy Fish says he declined interviews after his first-round match at Wimbledon because of a stomach problem related to pain medication he's taking for his right arm - and not anything related to his heart.

Fish spoke to reporters Wednesday, a day after he beat Ruben Ramirez-Hidalgo in three sets at the All England Club, the 10th-seeded American's first match since having a medical procedure in May to try to pinpoint an accelerated heartbeat.

It was also his first competition in about 2 1/2 months.

Fish is still working to get his confidence back with regard to his heart and not worrying at all about it.

During a match, he said, "The more you keep your mind off it, the better."

Fish next plays 173rd-ranked British wild-card recipient James Ward.
