Nothing excites me more than watching tennis players smash the ball across the court with outstanding speed and accuracy while the other opponent has the capability of hitting it right back without hesitation. One such player that many have been talking about since the days of Pete Sampras is Andy Roddick.
Andrew Stephen "Andy" Roddick (born August 30, 1982) is an American professional tennis player, and a former World No. 1.
He is the 6th-ranked player in the world, and top-ranked in the U.S., as of February 2, 2009. He became a Grand Slam singles champion when he won the title at the 2003 U.S. Open. Roddick has reached three other Grand Slam finals (Wimbledon twice, and the U.S. Open), losing to Roger Federer each time. He and Federer are the only players to have finished the season in the ATP top 10 each of the past seven years. Roddick is known for his powerful serves and forehands, and holds the fastest serve recorded in professional tennis, clocked at 155 mph (249.5 km/h).
Roddick was on the United States Davis Cup team which won the 2007 Davis Cup. Roddick defeated Dmitry Tursunov of the Russian Davis Cup team, the defending champions, in the finals.
He has become a highly paid endorser now because of his success and just to show you that he isnt just a pretty boy on the tennis court here is a funny commercial of him for your viewing pleasure:
