I believe his ranking now is safe to come to Shanghai.

Waiting for him for almost 3 years. Now in Shanghai, I can see many TMC adv features Roger, Andy, Hewitt, Nadal and Marat. Cannot wait to see them here.

Re: Andy's Ranking (points, stats, updates, etc.)! Current Ranking: Entry: 4, Race: 3

Andy's now down to 4, by the slimmest of margins - 10 pts. He should be back up to #3 next week b/c Hewitt's not defending SF points in Tokyo and he doesn't have enough optionals.

Marat is supposedly not defending Madrid so he'll drop a ton of points and be out of the picture in terms of bothering Andy in the rankings for a while. So he really should be ok to end the year top 4.

Re: Andy's Ranking (points, stats, updates, etc.)! Current Ranking: Entry: 4, Race: 3

Great idea for a thread Deb. I want to use this space to keep track of Andy's facts/figures/records as well. I'm sick of having to look in several different places for information. This way we can have it all in one thread.

RODDICK RECORDS
2001
- 19-year-old Andy Roddick became the youngest man to reach the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open since Andre Agassi in 1988 with a 6-2, 6-2, 6-4 drubbing of Tommy Robredo of Spain.
- In 2001, he became the youngest player to end the year in the ATP Top 20.
2003
- In 2003, he became the youngest American player to end the year as World No. 1.
- At 21, Roddick was the second-youngest player to finish a year atop the ATP Tour computer rankings.
- Made biggest jump to No. 1 from previous year, improving from No. 10
- Only player during year to reach SF or better at three of four Grand Slam tournaments and captured first Slam title at US Open.
- Andy's match with El Aynaoui at the Australian Open was a five hour marathon...The fifth set was longest in games in history of Grand Slam play.
- Andy became only the second player to ever host "Saturday Night Live" (Chris Evert was the first)
- Year-end stats: Compiled consistent records on all surfaces -- 44-10 on hard, 12-6 on clay, 10-1 on grass and 6-2 on carpet...Led ATP circuit in four (of six) service categories -- aces (989), 1st serve points won (81 percent), service games won (91%) and break points saved (69%)...Finished tied No. 2 in 2nd serve points won (59 percent)...Also played and won most tie-breaks, compiling a 36-21 mark
2004
- In 2004, Roddick set the world record for the fastest serve: 246.2 km/h (153.5 mph) during a straight-set victory over Thailand's Paradorn Srichaphan in the quarter-finals of the Queens Club grass-court tournament.
- Andy holds the record for fastest serve ever in Davis Cup history: 155.0 mph (249.4 km/h) (USA vs Sweden)
- On August 31 2004, he hit the fastest serve in US Open history: 244 km/h (152 mph).
- He finished 2004 ranked as the world's No. 2, the USA's No. 1, and the player with the most aces (he hit 1017 of them in 2004).
2005
- Andy became the first player to win the SAP Open in San José, California event in consecutive years since Mark Philippoussis in 1999 and 2000.
- Andy has made a record five straight appearance in the US Men's Clay Court Championships final, the longest streak on the ATP tour since Russia's Yevgeny Kafelnikov reached the title match at Moscow from 1996-01, winning the last five.
- Andy joined Lleyton Hewitt and John McEnroe as the only players to win three consecutive Queens Club titles.
- Fun fact: Roddick sold the most posters at Wimbledon, beating out local favorites Henman and Murray.
- Andy Roddick and Roger Federer are the only two players to hold titles on four different surfaces: indoor, grass, hardcourt, and clay.
- At the USA vs Belgium World Group Play-Offs, Roddick's match with O. Rochus became the longest match in Davis Cup history since the introduction of the deciding tiebreak (4 hrs 28 min).
- On October 25, Andy Roddick became the second-fastest active player to reach 300 wins, needing just 393 matches. Lleyton Hewitt accomplished the feat last year in only 392 matches.
- In October after winning Lyon, Roddick became the only player to win five titles on five different surfaces (San Jose on indoor hard, Houston on clay, Queen's on grass, Washington on outdoor hard, and Lyon on carpet).
- The Lyon win marked Roddick's first Fall title, first carpet title, his 20th career title, his second continental European title, and the first time he's won Lyon on the first try.
- Andy Roddick is the only player to have won multiple titles in each of the last five years (2001: 2, 2002: 3, 2003: 6, 2004: 4, 2005: 5, total: 20).
- Roddick is only one of two players to have won 50+ matches in the past four years (Federer is the other one).



AWARDS

2005
- The USA's loss to Croatia in the first round of the World Group marked the first time team USA has ever lost on home soil.
- Roland Garros, R64 vs Jose Acasuso marked the first time since turning pro that Andy has lost a five-set match after having won the first two sets.
- first round USO vs Gilles Muller 6-7(4) 6-7(10) 6-7(1) marked the first time Andy has ever crashed out in the first round of a non-clay slam since turning pro. (lost first first round USO 2000 as a WC)

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Andy's lost 1r at the USo already. Mind you he was still a junior then and got entry via a WC, but he still lost 1r .

It hasn't been officially announced, but I don't see any way that Andy could not qualify for Shanghai.

Also, Andy will be #3 again when the new rankings come out, which won't really matter at this point b/c Marat and Hewitt are out of Madrid anyway so he would've been bumped up, and also Hewitt might not play Paris either.

Thanks for the updates guys. If you remember or read about any more please let me know so I can add them here.

LOL, Hewitt and his toe and rib injuries have really helped Andy, huh?

On hiatus, just because.
