Andrew Stephen "Andy" Roddick (born August 30, 1982) is a retired American former World No. 1 professional tennis player.

He became a Grand Slam singles champion when he won the title at the 2003 US Open, defeating Juan Carlos Ferrero in the finals, which currently makes him the last North American male player to win a Grand Slam singles event. Roddick has reached four other Grand Slam finals (Wimbledon in 2004, 2005, and 2009, and the US Open in 2006), losing to Roger Federer every time. He is married to Brooklyn Decker, a Sports Illustrated swimwear model and actress.

On August 30, 2012, during the 2012 US Open and on his 30th birthday, Roddick announced he would retire after the tournament. Following a fourth-round defeat to Juan Martin del Potro, Roddick retired from the sport with the aim of focusing on his foundation in future years.
