Andy Roddick conquers qualifier and reveals birthday wish for US Open

Andy Roddick in action at day two of the US Open

By Romi Cvitkovic

Andy Roddick prevailed in straight sets over qualifier Rhyne Williams, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 at day two of the US Open in Flushing Meadows, hitting 20 aces and clocking his fastest serve at 141mph.

“I haven’t hit 140mph for about three years, so that was nice,” Roddick beamed during his on-court interview.

Though Roddick hasn’t had great success on the summer hard court season this year, getting booted in the first and third rounds of Cincinnati and Winston-Salem, respectively, he looked in form today.

The 20th seed won 90% of all first serves and 23-of-32 net approaches. His movement wasn’t hampered by the tricky windy conditions as he hit 37 winners for the match, and finished with a 127mph ace out wide.

With his 30th birthday only two days away, Roddick has a birthday wish in mind.

“I want to be around until next week,” he smiled. And what if he accomplishes that feat? “Then, we’ll re-negotiate!”

Turning professional in 2000, Roddick has now improved his record at the US Open to 41-11. And nobody has won more matches on Arthur Ashe stadium — not even Roger Federer.

Williams, ranked No. 289 in the world, made his Slam debut by blasting through the qualifying tournament last week, only to meet Roddick on tennis’ biggest stadium for his first main draw match.  But hey, don’t feel bad for him. He still won $23,000 for losing in the first round.
