Tennis superstar Andy Roddick surprised his fans on Thursday, announcing that the U.S. Open would be his last tournament. Roddick, a former No. 1-ranked player who won the U.S. Open in 2003, told reporters: "I just feel like it's time. I don't know that I'm healthy enough or committed enough to go another year." Roddick, 30, is set to play Australia's Bernard Tomic on Friday night.
