The BBC announced today that it has hired former No. 1s Andy Roddick and Justine Henin to its slate of on-air personalities during the upcoming Wimbledon Championships.
“I’m honoured to join the BBC team for Wimbledon,” Roddick said. “The Championships will always have a special place in my heart, and I’m excited to come back to cover them.”
Roddick’s quick wit, knowledge of the sport and opinions should make the 3-time Wimbledon finalist a natural star behind the mic.

Roddick will be joined by John McEnroe, Tim Henman, Martina Navratilova, Pat Cash, Lindsay Davenport and Richard Krajicek.
