As of August 15, 2011 he is ranked World No. 15 by the ATP rankings. Known for his extremely powerful serve, Roddick held the world record for the fastest serve at 155 mph between 2004 and 2011 until it was beaten by Ivo Karlović at 156 mph in March 2011.He became a Grand Slam singles champion when he won the title at the 2003 US Open, defeating Juan Carlos Ferrero in the finals, which currently makes him the last North American male player to win a grand slam singles event. Roddick has reached four other Grand Slam finals (Wimbledon three times and the US Open once), losing to Roger Federer each time.Roddick was born in Omaha, Nebraskato Jerry and Blanche Roddick. Roddick's father was a businessman and his mother was a school teacher. She now directs the Andy Roddick Foundation. Roddick has two older brothers, Lawrence and John (All-American tennis player at University of Georgia (199698) and head tennis coach at the University of Oklahoma), who were both promising tennis players at a young age.

Roddick lived in Austin, Texas, from age 4 until he was 11, and then moved to Boca Raton, Florida, in the interest of his brother's tennis career, attending Boca Prep International School, and graduating from the Class of 2000. Roddick played varsity basketball in high school alongside his future Davis Cup teammate Mardy Fish, who trained and lived with Roddick in 1999. During that time period, he sometimes trained with Venus and Serena Williams; he later moved back to Austin.

It was while Roddick was flipping through a previous swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated that Roddick first noticed Brooklyn Decker, to whom he is now married. The two had been dating since 2007, and on March 31, 2008, Roddick announced on his website that he and Decker had become engaged. The couple were married in Austin on April 17, 2009.Roddick seriously considered quitting competitive tennis at the age of 17, when he had a losing streak in the juniors. His coach, Tarik Benhabiles, talked him into giving tennis four more months of undivided attention. Roddick finished as the No. 6 junior in the U.S. in 1999, and as the No. 1 junior in the world in 2000. He won six world junior singles and seven doubles titles, and won the US Open and Australian Open junior singles titles in 2000. In March, in Miami, in the first round Roddick had his first major victory as he beat world No. 41 Fernando Vicente of Spain, 64, 60. In August, in Washington, D.C., he beat world No. 30 Fabrice Santoro of France, 46, 63, 63. Roddick played the Banana Bowl in the city of So Paulo and won, beating Joachim Johansson in the final.[8] Roddick also won the Australian Junior Open, defeating Mario Ančić in the final. In 2001, Roddick defeated former French Open champion Michael Chang in 5 sets in the second round of the tournament, despite clay being Roddick's worst surface. During the following Wimbledon, he further showed potential by taking a set from eventual winner Goran Ivaniević. He also defeated 7-time Wimbledon champion, world No. 4, and fellow American Pete Sampras, at the age of 19, at the Miami Masters 76 , 63, and world No. 1 Gustavo Kuerten of Brazil 67, 64, 62 in August. Roddick's breakthrough year was in 2003, in which he defeated Younes El Aynaoui in the quarterfinals of the 2003 Australian Open. Roddick and the Moroccan battled for five hours, with the fifth set (2119 in favor of Roddick) at the time the longest fifth set in a Grand Slam tournament during the open era, at 2 hours and 23 minutes. Despite a lackluster French Open, Roddick enjoyed success in the United Kingdom by winning Queen's Club, beating World No. 2 Andre Agassi 61, 67, 76 along the way, and reaching the Wimbledon semifinals, where he lost to eventual champion Roger Federer in straight sets. He avenged that loss in August, beating then World Number 3 Federer in Montreal, 64, 36, 76. It is one of two times that Roddick has defeated him in an official ATP tournament as of yet.
