Andy Roddick to Play Winston-Salem Open

Andy Roddick has committed to play in the Winston-Salem Open at Wake Forest University Aug. 20-27. Roddick will receive one of the tournament’s four wildcard entries.

“We are extremely pleased that Andy has decided to come back to Winston-Salem, where he has had so much success in the past playing for the United States in the Davis Cup,” Oakes said. “His addition gives the tournament all the top American players and makes an already-strong field even stronger.”

“It’s very important to note that Andy has never competed in a tournament the week prior to the U.S. Open throughout his entire professional career,” Oakes added.  “So, it’s very significant that he made the commitment to play in the Winston-Salem Open, given the timing of our tournament just before the U.S. Open.”


Roddick will join fellow Americans Mardy Fish, John Isner, Sam Querrey, Ryan Harrison and Donald Young in the 48-player singles draw.


Other ATP players entered in the tournament include Jurgen Melzer, Bernard Tomic, Kevin Anderson, Marcos Baghdatis, Alexandr Dolgopolov, Nikolay Davydenko, Tommy Robredo and Ernests Gulbis.
