Andy Roddick

Born in Omaha, Nebraska on August 30, 1982, Andrew "Andy" Stephen Roddick later moved with his family to Austin, Texas at age 4.

It was Andy, however, who went on to enter the world spotlight when he turned professional tennis player in 2000 at age 18. That same year he became the youngest player in the ATP Top 200. A year later, he was in the Top 20. With one of the fastest serves in the sport, Andy Roddick's career has skyrocketed on and off the court, including an appearance on Saturday Night Live, and media coverage by publications ranging from Rolling Stone Magazine to People Magazine, who named him 2002's "Sexiest Sports Star."

In his short professional career, Roddick has won 17 singles titles. His first grand slam title came in the 2003 US Open when he beat Juan Carlos Ferrero in straight sets. On August 31, 2004, Andy Roddick hit the fastest serve in US Open history - at 244 km/h (152 mph).

Later hobbled by a foot injury, Roddick withdrew from the 2006 French Open in May, and later at Wimbledon was roundly defeated by 19-year old underdog, Andy Murray.

Now in an attempt at a professional comeback, Andy Roddick has hired former tennis great Jimmy Connors as personal coach. Roddick fired his previous coach Dean Goldfine in February.

Andy Roddick made it to the men's semi-finals at the 2006 U.S. Open, but was defeated in four sets by defending title champ Roger Federer.

Most recently, Roddick finally broke his losing streak against Federer in a warm-up to the 2007 Australian Open in January.

Off the court, the handsome tennis star has dated actress Mandy Moore and is also rumored to be romantically linked to tennis star hottie Maria Sharapova.
