    Andy Roddick will return to Legg Mason Tennis Classic

    Top-ranked American Andy Roddick will return to Washington this summer to compete in the Legg Mason Tennis Classic, an event he has won three times in his career.

    Roddick's participation is expected to be announced Monday. It represents a coup for the late-summer, hard-court tournament, which raised its profile considerably last season in being designated one of the ATP World Tour 500 events and, in the process, doubling its prize money to $1.4 million and nearly tripling the number of ranking points awarded players.

    Roddick, 27, a fan favorite in Washington, is off to an impressive start to the hard-court season this year.

    Against a world-class field, he reached the finals at Indian Wells, Calif., last month. Two weeks later he won the title in Key Biscayne, Fla., brandishing an attacking, serve-and-volley game to oust Rafael Nadal in a three-set semifinal and needing just two sets to defeat Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic in the final. Roddick dropped his serve just twice en route to the title.

    Currently ranked No. 7 in the world, Roddick won Washington's Legg Mason Classic as a teenager in 2001 and repeated as its champion in 2005 and 2007.

    Last August he chose the Legg Mason for his return to competitive tennis after his five-sets loss to Roger Federer in an epic Wimbledon final. It was the third Wimbledon final Roddick had conceded to Federer, but with an arsenal of new shots and tactics, the American had never come closer to hoisting the sport's most coveted trophy.

    After taking a month off to recover from a hip injury, Roddick stormed to the final in Washington, an event many top pros use to hone their games for the season's final major, the U.S. Open. But he fell to defending champion Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina in three sets, with a tiebreak deciding the outcome under withering heat.

    Del Potro went on to win the U.S. Open, halting Federer's run of five consecutive titles.

    Roddick has won 29 singles titles in his career, including the 2003 U.S. Open, and has finished the season among the world's top 10 for eight consecutive seasons.

    The Legg Mason Tennis Classic will be played July 31-Aug. 8 at the William H.G. Fitzgerald Tennis Center in Rock Creek Park. Tickets go on sale May 1.

    No. 7 Andy Roddick withdraws from Rome Masters

    ROME – Seventh-ranked Andy Roddick has withdrawn from the Rome Masters citing personal reasons.

    The American recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of his marriage to model Brooklyn Decker, who was on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue in February.

    Roddick also skipped Rome last year when he took a break after the wedding, meaning he doesn't have any ranking points to defend in the clay-court tournament, which begins Sunday.

    While this tournament is mandatory for top-ranked players, Roddick will not be fined because he is allowed one free exemption per year as a veteran with over 600 matches played on tour.

    The ATP said Roddick was expected to be back for the Madrid Masters on May 9. Both the Rome and Madrid tournaments are key warmups for the French Open, which starts May 23.

    Roddick also skipped last week's Monte Carlo Masters, although that tournament is no longer mandatory for the top players. In the last tournament he did play, Roddick won the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, Fla., three weeks ago.

    Fourth-ranked Juan Martin del Potro and No. 6 Nikolay Davydenko will also not play in Rome — both due to long-term wrist injuries.

    Top-ranked Roger Federer, No. 2 Novak Djokovic and No. 3 Rafael Nadal are all expected at the Foro Italico, which will debut a new 10,500-seat stadium this year.

    Federer has reached the final twice in Rome but has never won. Djokovic took the title in 2008 and Nadal has won four of the past five years.
  • ^ ok lang basta wag syang mawawala sa french open;):love::)
