Memory Lane is a recurring feature in which we dig through's photo archives for classic pictures.

Some people wear their heart on their sleeve. Andy Roddick wears his on his head.

In light of David Nalbandian's showing his resolve and commitment to Davis Cup again with Friday's hard-earned victory for Argentina against Serbia's Viktor Troicki, it's a good time to celebrate another stalwart of the international team competition, Roddick. The American is 33-12 in his 10-year Davis Cup career, and if you discount his clay results (which, in all fairness, you should), he's an astounding 25-3. He also led the United States to the title in 2007.
