Roddick, 30, announced at a press conference Thursday he will retire after the U.S. Open, meaning a man who has been the face of U.S. men's tennis since Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi retired could be passing the torch as soon as this week. Fast-rising Australian Bernard Tomic will be Roddick's second-round opponent Friday at the U.S. Open.
