Andy Roddick, who retired following the U.S. Open this year, lost to Nicolas Almagro in the finals of the Miami Tennis Cup Exhibition today. The Spaniard beat Roddick 6-4, 7-5 as he broke the American once in each set.

Roddick, who created a stir by beating World No.3 Andy Murray in the semifinal on Sunday, dismissed talks of a comeback to the professional circuit. He is said to have put on four extra pounds since his retirement a few months ago.

“I don’t miss the travel at all,” Roddick was quoted as saying, after the semifinal match. “It’s nice coming here and seeing familiar faces. I still enjoy hitting tennis balls, but I haven’t lost that part of it. I haven’t lost any of the innocent parts of tennis. I just do it in front of less people.”
