Roddick, shown here in March 2000 in Key Biscayne, Fla., was the No. 1 junior that year and captured the Australian Open and US Open junior titles without dropping a set. He became the first US player to win the Aussie junior title since Butch Buchholz in 1959.

Roddick made a pro splash in March 2000 at the Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, Fla., winning his first ATP Tour match over then-No. 41 Fernando Vicente. He then fell in straight sets against American superstar Andre Agassi. It was the start of something big.

In 2002, Roddick became the youngest American in the year-end top 10 since Michael Chang in 1992. Along the way, he made a stirring run to the US Open quarterfinals before losing to Pete Sampras, who went on to win for his 14th Grand Slam title.

Roddick followed up his 2002 US Open effort in style, defeating Juan Carlos Ferrero to capture his first and only Grand Slam title, the 2003 US Open. With this victory, he truly was a superstar.

Roddick made the rounds after his big US Open victory. Here, he pals around with Regis Philben and Kelli Rippa while making an appearance on the "Regis & Kelli Show" in September 2003. In November of that year, he became just the second tennis player (after Chris Evert) to host "Saturday Night Live."

Roddick so nearly captured his second Grand Slam title at Wimbledon in 2009, but he was outlasted by nemesis Roger Federer 16-14 in the fifth set. The titanic battle marked the third time that Federer defeated Roddick in a Wimbledon final (2004 and 2005). The Swiss legend also stopped Roddick in the 2006 US Open final.

Despite the lack of a second Grand Slam crown, Roddick continued his excellent and consistent play throughout the 2000s. In 2010, he won two ATP Tour events and finished in the top 10 for the ninth consecutive year, joining Roger Federer as the only active players to accomplish that feat.
