(6) Andy Roddick
- DOB: 30/08/1982
- Nationality: USA
- Became Pro: 2000
- Height: 1.88
Probably the biggest sufferer of Federer-Nadal dominance in the men's game, Roddick has never been able to improve upon his maiden Grand Slam title at the 2003 US Open.
But try telling the American former world number one, who has arguably the biggest heart in the sport, as well as the hugest serve, that his best days are behind him.
Roddick, who is expected to overcome a stomach bug in time for the second major of the year, reignited his career at last year's Wimbledon when he played his part in one of the most dramatic finals in the All England Club's history, but the world number eight was denied once again by Federer in a colossal fifth-set decider which went to 30 games.
Doing his utmost to prove that was not his final swansong at the top of the game, Roddick was the success story of the American hardcourt stretch at the start of this season, reaching the final of Indian Wells before winning his first Masters tournament since 2006 in Miami.
Clay is certainly A-Rod's least effective surface, but last year's fourth-round appearance in Paris represents his best return in the French capital in what has otherwise been an arid tournament for him.
Another second-week stint at the French Open would represent a success for 27-year-old, especially after being absent in Rome and Madrid in the build up to Roland Garros.
