Players Attend Inaugural Raonic Race For Kids



Quote:
Serena Williams, Andy Roddick, Daniel Nestor and more were on hand last night in Toronto to help Milos Raonic at the Raonic Race For Kids inaugural event. Raonic has recently launched the Milos Raonic Foundation, a charitable organization to support initiatives to reduce economic, physical and other barriers that may prevent disadvantaged children from becoming healthy, productive members of society.

Andy Roddick into Miami Cup final: http://espn.go.com/tennis/story/_/id...iami-cup-final

Quote:
KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. -- Recently retired Andy Roddick beat third-ranked Andy Murray 6-2, 6-3 on Saturday in the Miami Tennis Cup exhibition event.

Roddick will play 11th-ranked Nicolas Almagro of Spain in the final Sunday. Almagro advanced with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over 14th-ranked John Isner.

Murray, trailing 2-5 in the first set, surrendered his serve in the eighth game when he sailed a backhand crosscourt wide. In the second set, Murray saved two break points from down 0-40, but couldn't convert the third to give Roddick a 5-3 lead. At 15-0, Roddick double-faulted twice in a row, but went on to win the final three points of the match with a service winner and two forehand winners.

"If we had gone three sets I would've had a full body cramp and it would've been awkward for all of you," said Roddick, who kept a running dialogue with the crowd. "There's no comeback (to tennis for me).

"Andy was nice to me tonight."

Roddick has put on four pounds since retiring following the U.S. Open. He says he's content in retirement and is playing a lot of golf.

"I don't miss the travel at all," Roddick said. "It's nice coming here and seeing familiar faces. I still enjoy hitting tennis balls, but I haven't lost that part of it. I haven't lost any of the innocent parts of tennis. I just do it in front of less people."

Murray, the Olympic gold medalist and U.S. Open champion, wasn't surprised that Roddick won.

"Andy hasn't hit that many balls the last few months," Murray said. "Maybe his timing was a little bit off, but he still hits the ball very well. It was only a few months ago he was making a decent run at the U.S. Open."

Roddick has beaten Almagro both times they met in straight sets and both meetings were on hard courts. They met here at Crandon Park in the 2010 Miami Masters quarterfinals and the 2011 Shanghai Masters in the round of 16.

ATP HERITAGE: ANDY RODDICK, 2003

On 23 August, ATP celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Emirates ATP Rankings. We continue our countdown with a look at Andy Roddick, the 2003 year-end No. 1. #ATPHeritage

Andy Roddick was as brash and edgy as any player in tennis history, but sustained a fundamental humility and sense of his own good fortune throughout his career.

Roddick first became No. 1 in the Emirates ATP Rankings on 3 November 2003, during the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris. He spent 13 weeks at the summit of the sport.

"You can get hot and win a Grand Slam over a two-week period, but the year-end ranking is a 52-week process," said Roddick. "The year-end No. 1s, I think they are the ones remembered in our sport."

Roddick learned that he had become the year-end No. 1 in 2003 while eating at a Mexican restaurant in Houston. He was watching Andre Agassi beat Juan Carlos Ferrero in the Tennis Masters Cup [now named Barclays ATP World Tour Finals].

"The coolest thing about it for me was that my childhood idol won the match that made me No. 1," said Roddick. "It was just one of those ‘somebody pinch me so I know this is for real’ moments. It was surreal."

Roddick won his lone major at the 2003 US Open, beating Ferrero – the man he would replace at No. 1 eight weeks later. The Nebraskan lost to Roger Federer in his four other major championship final appearances (2004-05, '09 Wimbledon, 2006 US Open).

His serve was his outstanding weapon, but his baseline game featured a dangerous forehand and a backhand that evolved into a versatile tool.

Roddick was ranked in the year-end Top 10 of the Emirates ATP Rankings for nine straight years (2002-2010); he reached 17 major quarter-finals and won five of his nine ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title matches. He won 32 singles titles and retired in September 2012.
