WMA nets Roddick

Star ranked #4 in current ATP rankings

Professional tennis player Andy Roddick has signed for representation with the William Morris Agency.

William Morris will seek commercial, licensing, broadcasting, sponsorship, speaking, publishing, motion pictures, television and other off-court opportunities for Roddick, the 20-year-old sensation who began setting the tennis world on fire when he turned pro in 2000. WMA will work in partnership with on-court agent SFX Tennis Division in representing Roddick’s interests.

“Andy Roddick is one of just a few athletes who is as interesting off the court as he is on the court,” said David Wirtschafter, WMA’s worldwide head of motion pictures. “We look forward to doing some unique things with Andy in the near future.”

Roddick has a career singles record of 108-45, with five singles titles and two doubles titles. He played on the United States’ Davis Cup team in 2001 and 2002 and recently reached the semifinals at the Australian Open.
