Despite several more years as one of the world's best players that would remain his only Grand Slam triumph.He is the most recent North American male player to win a Grand Slam singles event, the most recent to reach the top ranking, and the most recent to claim the year-end world No. Roddick reached four other Grand Slam finals (Wimbledon in 2004, 2005, and 2009, and the US Open in 2006), losing to Roger Federer every time.Roddick has two older brothers, Lawrence and John (All-American tennis player at University of Georgia [1996–98] and head tennis coach at the University of Oklahoma), who were both promising tennis players at a young age. In March in Miami, in the first round Roddick had his first ATP level victory as he beat World No. During the following Wimbledon, he further showed potential by taking a set from eventual winner Goran Ivanišević. In 2004, Roddick saved fellow tennis player Sjeng Schalken and other guests (including close friends Ben Campezi and Dean Monroe) from a hotel fire. (He lost in 2003 to Agassi, and in 2004 to Tommy Haas.)

At the age of 18, he also defeated 7-time Wimbledon champion, World No. Roddick's first 2005 tournament victory was the SAP Open in San Jose, California, where he became the first to win the event in consecutive years since Mark Philippoussis in 19. Verdasco was attempting to save the match point on his second serve, when the linesman erroneously called the serve out.
The pair started their romance at the Australian Open and have been seen relaxing together in-between games, however, when Roddick arrived unannounced at the launch of Maria's perfume he was keen to play down the rumours, insisting they pair are "just good friends".Today they provide over 10,000 new school uniforms to over 5,000 children, in addition to the basics of sneakers, socks and underwear.)
