NEW YORK — Andy Roddick is not ready for retirement just yet.
A day after surprisingly announcing the U.S. Open will be the last tournament of his career, Roddick dominated Australian teenager Bernard Tomic from start to finish Friday night in Arthur Ashe Stadium and reached the third round with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-0 victory.
Roddick, the 2003 U.S. Open champion and former No. 1-ranked player, will get to play at least one more match before walking away from professional tennis. It'll be against 59th-ranked Fabio Fognini of Italy.
Roddick turned 30 on Thursday, and held a news conference to say he would quit after a season of injuries and poor results at Grand Slam tournaments. But he sure looked good against the 43rd-ranked Tomic, hitting 13 aces, including on the final point.
