On his 30th birthday, Thursday, August 30, the former world No. 1, 2003 US Open titlist, 2007 Davis Cup champion and winner of a tour-level title in 12 straight seasons announced he would retire after the US Open.
Ryan Harrison (@ryanharrison92): “Incredible career Andy. Thanks so much for everything you have done for me and all of American tennis. Can’t thank you enough #HallOfFame”
James Blake: “His career has been incredible. He’s been such a stalwart in Davis Cup. I can never repay him for winning me a Davis Cup, for being the anchor on that team, clinching every match that year, just about. It’s a great friendship. That will continue, but we’ll miss his career, his charisma on the court, his excitement, what he brought to the game. Like he was talking about, the mentorship, he was a leader in the locker room, leader hanging out at Davis Cup, playing cards, doing whatever. He’s definitely just a great leader.”
Roger def. Bjorn Phau 6/2 6/3 6/2 and will play Fernando Verdasco in R3 at US Open 2012.
