Roddick receives AEGON International wildcard

Andy Roddick, who lost in his opening match in Queens, received a wildcard into the AEGON International tournament to be played in Eastbourne.

This will be Roddick’s first appearance at Devonshire Park and he says he is looking forward to making the journey South.

“Players talk about the laid-back atmosphere at Eastbourne and I’m really looking forward to putting the finishing touches to my Wimbledon preparations on the grass courts down there,” said Roddick.

“Andy plays a spectacular brand of tennis and has treated British fans to some breathtaking contests on grass courts over the years,” said Fletcher. “He’s a real crowd-favourite and I know they’re going to enjoy his classic serve-volley playing style.” AEGON International tournament director Gavin Fletcher commented.
