Andy Roddick Ends Career at the US Open

September 6 2012 Beeyong Sison - Fan favorite and 2003 US Open champion Andy Roddick ended his career at the Arthur Ashe Stadium with a loss to 2009 US Open winner Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina 67 (1), 76 (4), 62, 64 in the fourth round at Flushing Meadows on Wednesday. The Texan made a surprising announcement last Thursday that this year's US Open would be his last tournament. 


Roddick tearfully buried his face in a towel after the 30-year old missed his most trusted shot - his forehand on the final point. Del Potro, who started slow Tuesday when rain suspended play, took control of the match after losing the first set tie-breaker 1-7. Del Potro, who saluted Roddick after the match, hung on to win the second set tie-break 7-4, then clearly dominated the throughout the match.  

UPDATE: 09/04/12 - Andy Roddick gets to play another professional tennis round at his favorite tournament by eliminating Italy’s Fabio Fognini 75 76(1) 46 64 in the third round held at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing Meadows Sunday afternoon. Playing in front of a boisterous crowd, the 2003 US Open champion rode on an emotional wave of adrenalin through-out the match since he announced his retirement four days ago. Roddick will be playing 2009 US Open Champion Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina in a blockbuster match today at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing Meadows, New York. Del Potro defeated countryman Leonardo Mayer 63 75 76(9) in the round of 16s.

UPDATES 08/31/2012 - Tennis fans were just getting over the heart-breaking final match of Kim Clijster at the Arthur Ashe stadium when another devastating news was announced Andy Roddick will retire after this year’s US Open.  


The  2003 US Open Champion and the last American male player to win a grand slam singles event, said Thursday, his 30th birthday, that he will be leaving the game for good after the tournament.


‘‘I just feel like it’s time, I don’t know that I’m healthy enough or committed enough to go another year. I’ve always wanted to, in a perfect world, finish at this event,” said the former World No.1 in a surprising announcement.


In the 2003 US Open, Roddick came back from two sets down to defeat David Nalbandian in the semi-finals then followed with  a brilliant performance against Spain's Juan Carlos Ferrero 63 76 63 in the championship match. Roddick has reached four other Grand Slam finals (Wimbledon in 2004, 2005 and 2009, and the US Open in 2006), losing it all to Roger Federer.


"With the way my body feels, with the way that I'm able to compete right now, I don't know that it's good enough. I don't know that I've ever been someone who is interesting in 'existing' on tour.I couldn't imagine myself being there in another year,” said the Texan who will faceAustralia's Bernard Tomic in a second-round match Friday at Arthur Ashe Stadium which could well be his final match.

Roddick has been saddled with nagging injuries the past few seasons.  Last February he dropped out of the top 20 ranking where he went to No. 34 in March, his lowest ranking since 2001.


When asked about Roddick’s retirement Federer said, ‘‘He’s a great man, I had great battles with him for a long, long time. The Wimbledon finals come to mind, the ones we played together. He’s a great, great competitor and a great champion, really.’’ The most memorable match between Roddick and Federer was at the 2009 Wimbledon finals where Federer edged him in one of the most thrilling matches played at the All-England Center Court 75 67 67 63 14-16


Roddick plans to be more involved in his foundation which is building a youth tennis center in Austin. Married to actress and model Brooklyn Decker he says he still loves the innocent parts of the game and loves hitting tennis ball and seeing the young guys do well."


 It would be great to see him do well in this tournament.
