Andy Roddick is a former world number one in the Tennis World Rankings, though he’s currently ranked at number 3.

His career first reached the heights at the 2003 U.S Open, when Roddick became the Grand Slam singles champion, defeating Juan Carlos Ferrero in the final. Roddick has also reached the finals of four other Grand slam events, including Wimbledon in 2004, 2005 and 2009 and the U.S Open in 2006. However each time he lost to Rodger Federer.

In 2012, Andy Roddick started his season off by playing the AAMI Classic. In this tournament he lost to Gael Monfils in the first round, so it wasn’t the greatest start to the year. His next tournament was the 2012 Australia Open where he defeated Robin Haase in the first round before he was forced to retire against Leyton Hewitt in the second round. His season finally got underway in the SAP Open in San Jose after recovering from his injury.

In March, Roddick’s season finally started clicking into gear at the Sony Ericsson Open, when Andy Roddick had the first chance to play with Federer this year, and managed to defeat him for only the third time in his career. With his current run of good form, Roddcik might be back in with a chance at Wimbledon – he is still one of the top 10 according to the latest wimbledon betting odds.
