Andy Roddick Officially Removed From The ATP Rankings
by Tom Gainey | February 25th, 2013, 10:19 pm

Andy Roddick retired after the US Open last year, but hadn’t officially been removed from the ATP Ranking, that is until today. After last week’s dust-up in which Roddick’s actually rose two spots in the rankings to No. 40, the former No. 1 officially requested the ATP to remove him permanently from the standings. And as of today, he’s gone.

Roddick spent nearly 13 full years on the singles computer, starting from March 6, 2000 and ending yesterday, February 24, 2013, including 13 weeks at No. 1 in 2003/2004.

The next big – really big – tennis event for Roddick will be the Hall of Fame induction in 2017. In the meantime you can still listen to him on national Fox Sports radio every Saturday afternoon.

One of the most carismatic ever tennis players,i actually miss seeing A.Rod playing,it was his bad luck to have been born into the Fedal era otherwise im sure he would have been a multiple GS winner,still what a fantastic career he had,and i hope he enjoys the next phase of his life.

the most mardy player on court ever and a big baby and utter shocking way of treating others on court. glad hes gone!!!!!

Mike Says:

One of the greatest matches I ever watched was the Fed Roddick final 2009? where Andy lost in the 5 set after having a supreme chance to win but missed an easy net shot. That was his last chance and I think he knew it. Something was taken from him that day and he never got it back. If he had won I think Andy would still be playing today.
