Andy Roddick to serve as BBC analyst for Wimbledon 2015
Three-time Wimbledon finalist and former World No. 1 Andy Roddick will join the BBC for its coverage of Wimbledon 2015, the network announced Tuesday.
Roddick, who won the U.S. Open in 2003—the last time an American male won a Grand Slam—will give his analysis of Wimbledon on the BBC's television and radio platforms.
“I'm honored to join the BBC team for Wimbledon," Roddick said, according to the BBC's announcement. "The Championships will always have a special place in my heart, and I'm excited to come back to cover them."
Roddick, who retired in 2012, was a finalist at Wimbledon in 2004, 2005 and 2009. He lost to Roger Federer each time, including a five-set defeat in 2009 capped by a 14-16 fifth set.
Roddick is an analyst on Fox Sports 1.
Wimbledon begins on June 29 and runs through July 12.
