The rumors became reality as Andy Roddick officially withdrew from the Barclays ATP Finals in London due to his ongoing knee injury suffered in Shanghai.
“I am really disappointed,” Roddick said. “I love playing in London and I’ve heard so many good things about the venue. However, I have not fully recovered from my knee injury and I won’t be able to compete.
“One of my goals in 2010 will be to qualify for this event again.”
Robin Soderling will now take over Roddick’s spot. The official draw will be announced tomorrow.
