Andy Roddick, tennis legend and husband to Brooklyn Decker, has just announced his retirement from professional tennis!
He plans to retire after the current U.S. Open.
In a very honest statement, Andy said:
"I have decided that this is going to be my last tournament. I don't know if I'm healthy enough or committed enough to continue another year. I wanted an opportunity to say goodbye. I hope I'm sticking around."
Roddick just turned 30 and will be playing a 19-year-old Australian, Bernard Tomic, at the U.S. Open.
Maybe he thinks he's getting a little old.
He did win the U.S. Open in 2003 and ended the season ranked number one, all at the age of 21, which made him the youngest American player to ever do so!
We're sad to see him leave the sport but we're happy for him to be able to move onto the next phase of his life.
Also, spending more time with Brooklyn Decker must have its benefits as well… if you know what we mean. LOLz!
