Granted, that's not saying much, particularly in the age of "Big 4" dominance, when guys like Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal are snatching up all of the major championships.
Still Roddick has been a damn good player over the years, even if some people don't think he lived up to his potential.
His 2009 Wimbledon final loss to Federer was one of the greatest Major championship finals ever. His 2003 US Open win was his only Major championship, but he also won 31 other tournaments, and was a finalist at WImbledon 3 times.
Roddick was briefly the number 1 player in the world, back in 2003. Pretty impressive, if you ask me.
Now, he's calling it quits, presumably to spend a little more time with his wife, supermodel Brooklyn Decker.
While I think he still has quite a bit left in the tank... I must be honest. I don't blame him at all.
