Andy Roddick Biography

Andrew Stephen "Andy" Roddick is an American professional tennis player and a former World No. 1. He became a Grand Slam singles champion when he won the title at the 2003 US Open, defeating Juan Carlos Ferrero in the finals, which currently makes him the last North American male player to win a grand slam singles event. Roddick's first 2005 tournament victory was the SAP Open in San Jose, California, where he became the first to win the event in consecutive years. At the Grand Prix de Tennis de Lyon, Andy Roddick defeated Gaël Monfils to win the tournament and gain the title. He captured his 26th ATP title in Beijing at the China Open on September 28, 2008. Roddick has reached four other Grand Slam finals (Wimbledon in 2004, 2005 and 2009, and the US Open in 2006), losing to Roger Federer every time. On August 30, 2012, during the 2012 US Open, Andy Roddick announced he would retire after the tournament following which he played his final match on 5 September 2012, succumbing to Juan Martin del Potro in the fourth round of the tournament.
