Roddick Announces His Retirement At The US Open

Andy Roddick, former world no.1, the last American man to win the US Open title and the fulcrum of his nation’s Davis Cup team for much of the last decade, has announced he is to retire from tennis with immediate effect once he loses at the Billie Jean King Tennis Center in New York.

 

 

Federer Heaps Praise On The Career Of Andy Roddick

World no.1 Roger Federer led to a succession of compliments for Andy Roddick, the Swiss nemesis who denied his American rival of glory in the 2006 U.S. Open final and three more times at Wimbledon in 2004, 2005 and 2009.

Federer described Roddick as a "great man" and admitted he had "some great battles" with the American, notably that 2009 Wimbledon final when the scoreline read 57, 76, 76, 36, 16.

 

Tsonga Feels Pressure To Play And Keep Up Ranking

The ATP rankings requirements force Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to play more events than he wants, the Frenchman indicated after losing in the second round of the US Open.

 

 

 

Isner Wants To Play Spain’s Best In Davis Cup

American John Isner hopes to test himself against the best on clay when the US plays Spain next month in a David Cup semi-final. But the continuing uncertainty over the knee fitness of Rafael Nadal may mean that the king of the surface will not be on court for the tie the week after the end of the US Open.

"Everyone wants him to be healthy.  Honestly, if it was up to me, I would want him to play," said Isner.
