Andrew Stephen "Andy" Roddick (born August 30, 1982) is an American professional tennis player and a former World No. 1. He is currently the second highest-ranked American player, behind Mardy Fish. Known for his powerful serve, Roddick held the world record for the fastest serve at 155 mph between 2004 and 2011 until it was beaten by Ivo Karlović at 156 mph in March 2011.
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 three times and the US Open once), losing to Roger Federer each time.
He is married to Brooklyn Decker, a Sports Illustrated swim wear model and actress.
