Roddick's determined rise to the top
Around the Academy:

Andy Roddick in action at Wimbledon
Take that - at 155 mph you're not going to see it
What does it take to make the leap from a player with great potential to the world's number one?

Andy Roddick blasted his way into the tennis world as a 19-year-old when he topped the junior rankings.

Two years later, only Roger Federer stands between him and the top spot.

A-Rod calls himself a "goofball", but with one Grand Slam already under his belt, there are precious few in his class.

He holds the world record for the fastest serve ever (155mph), and hits his forehand like he's swotting a fly.

Andy is one of the hottest properties on the men's tour.
