In this episode, Brian and Josh discuss the recently released Netflix documentary on Mardy Fish "Untold: Breaking Point". This documentary tells the story of Mardy Fish's rise to the highest level of the ATP Tour which included a high-ranking of #7 in the world and an appearance at the prestigious 2011 ATP World Tour Finals. The co-hosts discuss Mardy's challenges with mental health and severe anxiety disorder that ultimately led Mardy to put his career on pause for several years. They also review how Mardy overcame these challenges and has used his platform and position as U.S. Davis Cup captain to help the next generation learn from his story. This conversation also considers what "toughness" really is, and how this concept is often misunderstood by athletes, coaches, parents, and the media.
