Andy Roddick will retire following the U.S. Open, according to an AP story.
He announced his retirement from tennis on Thursday, his 30th birthday.
“I just feel like it’s time. I don’t know that I’m healthy enough or committed enough to go another year,” he said. “I’ve always wanted to, in a perfect world, finish at this event.”
Roddick will play tonight against Bernard Tomic of Australia in the U.S. Open’s second round. Roddick was the 2003 U.S. Open champion and former world’s No. 1 player.
Best of luck to Andy Roddick in the U.S. Open and in his career after professional tennis.
