Andy Roddick, the last American man to win the U.S. Open when he took the title in 2003, says he will not attend the tournament this year. Roddick retired at the U.S. Open last season.

“I don't know that I’ll ever be the guy who needs to go to a tournament to be seen and to spectate,” Roddick told reporters at a World TeamTennis match. “I feel like I can accomplish spectating from home. I’ll certainly go back at some point, but I think the last thing that has been a priority on my itinerary this year is going to watch tennis tournaments live.”
