Andrew Stephen ("Andy") Roddick (born August 30, 1982) is an American professional tennis player and a former World No. 1. He currently is ranked sixth in the world and is the No. 2 ranked American player. He finished sixth in the 2006 ATP Race.
Roddick is known for his explosive serves and powerful forehands. He also holds the fastest serve record in professional tennis, clocked at 155 mph, or 246.2 km/h
Roddick's style is that of an offensive baseliner. On a first serve he tends to use his powerful and accurate service to either earn free points with aces/unreturnable serves, or put himself into position to hit a forehand winner. For his second serve, Roddick usually employs a heavy topspin "kick serve," then tries to use a variety of spins, slices and angles in the rally to throw off his opponent and position himself for a winning shot. Roddick will also occasionally use the serve and volley tactic on both first and second services to surprise his opponent, though he generally prefers to remain back after a serve. One of Roddick's most effective combinations is the serve out wide on the deuce court followed by an inside out forehand winner. Though such a tactic has come to become expected by most opponents, they often struggle so much with returning his serve that they are unable to recover fast enough to chase down his following shot. Though Roddick's return game has been labeled his greatest weakness, this aspect of his game has vastly improved in recent months. Under the tutelage of coach Jimmy Connors, Roddick has transformed his two-handed backhand and volley, arguably his worst two shots, into reliable weapons in his arsenal.
