America's number 1 player Andy Roddick will be looking to stop the rot against James Blake then the duo meet in the 1st round of the ATP Event in Memphis tonight. Blake managed to gain his 1st win against Roddick at the Semi Finals of the ATP event in Queens back in 2006 and the New Yorker backed up that victory by beating Roddick in the final of the Legg Mason ATP Event in Washington DC. Last summer the duo met once again in the Semi Final of Queens but Roddick had to withdraw with an ankle injury. Despite that setback Roddick went on the reach the final of Wimbledon before he lost an epic 5 set final to the World Number 1 Roger Federer 16-14 in the 5th set. Roddick has been in good form so far in 2010 he won the ATP title in Brisbane at the start of the year and he managed to reach the final in San Jose last week before losing out in the title match to Fernando Verdasco.
