Roddick Returns in 2008!
Andy Roddick, seeking to add a fourth title to his already impressive record, returns to the Nation's Capitol this August.
Roddick has chosen to focus his summer on the U.S. hardcourt swing, in preparation for the US Open. “My goal every summer is to win the US Open,” said Roddick. “I have won the Legg Mason Tennis Classic three times and feel defending my title in Washington best prepares me for another Grand Slam title.”
Currently #6 in the world rankings, Roddick finished 2007 in the Top 10 for his sixth straight season, winning at least one ATP singles title for the seventh consecutive year. He led the United States to its first Davis Cup title since 1995, the first American player since Pete Sampras in ‘95 to go undefeated (6-0) and lead his country to the Cup final. This year, his record is 15-2, with titles at San Jose and Dubai . While one is tempted to think of Roddickas the seasoned veteran – he has 25 singles titles, and played his first Legg Mason Tennis Classic in 2000 – he is just 25 years old, and has won the Legg Mason Tennis Classic in 2007, 2005 and 2001.
