He probably would have announced it in his post-match press conference and the USTA would've arranged some time before one of the 7 pm matches later in the tournament for Roddick to come out and wave goodbye to the crowd (Remember how Sampras came out?).
This. He didn't want to announce ahead of playing a countryman. Fully understandable. It seems a long shot that he will run into another.

Typical antics all came out in this match: faking injuries, grimacing and cursing, trying to peg Fed, trying to start drama, undeserved final based on an exhausted old man and a joke draw.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

stupid question

Andy has zero chance to lose a outside 300.

And What make him to retired? he has no more interest to come back to Top ten, He run out gas and enough money to retired. so

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Thiem will be top three by Dec 2016
Borna Coric will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2018
