TORONTO (AP) -- Newly retired Andy Roddick has some more tennis left in him.
 
He'll be playing Canada's Milos Raonic in a Nov. 16 exhibition dubbed ''The Face-Off'' at Toronto's Air Canada Centre.
 
The 30-year-old Roddick is a former No. 1 who retired last week at the U.S. Open. Raonic will be getting a rare chance to play before home fans. He lost to Roddick in a final at Memphis, Tenn., in 2011.
 
Also on the exhibition card are U.S. Open champion Serena Williams and Agnieszka Radwanska. They'll meet in a rematch of this year's Wimbledon final, won by Williams. Raonic, Roddick, Williams and Radwanska also will play mixed doubles.
