Former world No. 1 Andy Roddick, who retired at the U.S. Open last September, tells Philly.com that he is comfortable in his new life. Roddick is still connected to tennis, playing World TeamTennis for the Springfield Lasers and also owning a part of the league. He will begin a new job as co-host of Fox Sports Live on the new Fox Sports 1 network next month.

"I think people are looking for a very dramatic answer about how tough the transition was," Roddick said. "Maybe I just had reasonable expectations."
