Yea, Rodney, he played in 2002 and 2003
He made R16 in 2002 (which was by far his best clay season ever) and lost first round in 2003.
oh, this doesn't make the news sound quite as good
But, again, sounds like definitely no Monte Carlo...
Roddick, wrist in cast, hopes for April 18 return

Andy Roddick's sprained right wrist has been placed in a cast, and he will not pick up a racket for at least seven or eight days, his spokesman said Saturday. An MRI taken Friday night after he retired from his second-round match against Fernando Verdasco shows considerable inflammation but no structural damage.
Roddick was described as "definitely in" one of his favorite tournaments, the U.S. Clay Court Championships in Houston, beginning April 18, where he was runner-up to Tommy Haas a year ago. He is not certain, however, to play an exhibition event in Houston, River Oaks, on April 14-15.
