1st Round: Roddick serves up strong start

Andy Roddick’s reputation as one of the strongest and fastest servers in the game was underlined yet again as he powered down 21 aces during a four set win over France’s Jeremy Chardy.
Roddick lays low and stays focused

2nd Round: Powerful Roddick too strong for Kunitsyn
Andy Roddick d. Igor Kunitsyn (RUS) 6-4, 6-2, 3-6, 6-2
There were no fancy jackets, no monogrammed shirts or waistcoats and very little by way of fanfare but nevertheless, Andy Roddick stated his intent at The Championships with another four-set win, this time over Igor Kunitsyn, to reach the third round.

3rd Round: Roddick too good for Melzer
Andy Roddick d. Jurgen Melzer (26) (AUT) 7-6 (7-2), 7-6 (7-2), 4-6, 6-3
Eight times before today they have met, and eight times the American has triumphed. This match was no exception to the rule, the number six seed securing his place in Monday’s last 16 with a comprehensive win over the Austrian.
Quick-witted Roddick raises a smile

4th Round: Roddick serves his way past Berdych
Andy Roddick d. Tomas Berdych (20) (CZE) 7-6 (7-4), 6-4, 6-3
Roddick turned Berdych’s form upside down in his win. Berdych had come into the last 16 without dropping a set, something he had not achieved in a Grand Slam since 2007.

Quarter-final: Ace Roddick surges past Hewitt

Andy Roddick called himself just an “old married dude” but he gave his younger semi-final opponent Andy Murray plenty to think about with his five-set victory over Lleyton Hewitt.
