Andy Roddick in Australian Open Tennis 2008

Andy Roddick is the sixth seed of Australian Open 2008. He is one of the strongest contenders of the singles title of Australian Open this year. This American star could not yet reach the Australian Open tennis final. So, the world no. 6 will try his best to make it to the final of the first grand slam tournament of the New Year. He started the year winning the AAMI Kooyong Classic title for the third year in a row. So, the former world no. 1 is now in great form too.

China Post reported:

He did not drop a set this year as he matched Michael Chang's three straight titles from 1995. Andre Agassi won three titles in four years in a streak broken by Pete Sampras' win in 2002.

"I'm still young and hungry at 25," Roddick said, hoping that the elation that came with leading the United States to its Davis Cup win was still fresh enough to help him end a run of 16 majors without a title since his only Grand Slam title at the 2003 U.S. Open.

"It was great to win that Davis Cup -- to get to feel something like that so recently makes you want to win even more."

Roddick won two WTA titles last year. However, his performance was not that much satisfactory with dropping in the ranking. So, this year he must try to improve his ranking. He may not have too much problem to reach the fourth round, where he may face Tommy Robredo. Then in the quarter final, Carlos Moya or Rafael Nadal could be his most probable opponent and if he can reach the semi final, he might get Richard Gasquet or Andy Murray or Nikolay Vladimirovich Davydenko could be his most likely opponent. Most of the players are some of the best players of present day. However, Roddick is more experienced than most of them. So, he has better chance this time around.
