Despite having not won a singles match since his second round at the U.S. Open, Andy Roddick earned the sixth spot for the Barclays ATP Finale in London today.
“The reaction I received from fans after the Wimbledon final was something I will never forget. I’ve always had great support in London and I’m looking forward to being back there in November. I’m sure it will be a fantastic event,” said Roddick.
Though he had to pull out of Shanghai with a bad knee, Roddick’s London chances were helped immensely by early round losses in Shanghai by Fernando Verdasco, Fernando Gonazlez and Jo-Wilifred Tsonga who are still chasing the final spot.
I say “final” because with his Shanghai win and upcoming schedule, Nikolay Davydenko is all but assured of claiming the seventh spot for London.
