Go Figure: Andy Roddick's career

Thursday August 30th, 2012

Andy Roddick announced on Thursday, his 30th birthday, that he would retire after the U.S. Open, where he will play his second-round match on Friday. Here's a look at some notable numbers from the American's career, which began in 2000.

9: Consecutive years that Roddick finished the season ranked in the top 10, a streak that ended last year when he was No. 14. He is ranked No. 22 now.

12: Consecutive years that Roddick has won at least one title (he has two this year), matching Roger Federer for longest active streak.

13: Weeks spent at No. 1. He reached the top spot as a 21-year-old in November 2003.

32: Career titles, including the 2003 U.S. Open, his lone Grand Slam championship.

610-212: Roddick's all-time record heading into his second-round match on Friday.

33-12: Roddick's record in Davis Cup (all singles matches). He led the United States to the title in 2007. Only John McEnroe (41) has more victories than Roddick in U.S. history.

4: Times that Roddick was runner-up at a Grand Slam tournament.

37: Consecutive service holds for Roddick in the 2009 Wimbledon final before Federer finally broke him in the last game of the match to win 5-7, 7-6 (6), 7-6 (5), 3-6, 16-14.

155: Miles per hour of Roddick's fastest recorded serve, from a Davis Cup match in 2004, a then-record.

3-21: Roddick's record against Federer. Roddick, however, won what could be their final meeting, at the Miami Masters this year.
