Roddick went on to end 2003 as world number 1, to date that US Open title is Roddick’s only Grand Slam triumph.
The American however was one of the favourites for Wimbledon this year but he lost to the unheralded Yen-Hsun Lu of Chinese Taipei in 5 sets on Court 2.
Last year Roddick made the final at Wimbledon for the 3rd time in his career but lost to the then world number 1 Roger Federer 16-14 in the 5th set.
Federer is now a 6 time champion at Wimbledon and he will be looking to equal Pete Sampras’s record of 7 this year.
