Wimbledon: Men's Form Guide 25/6
Andy Roddick and David Ferrer claimed tournament victories heading into the Wimbledon Championships while most of the big names sat it out in preparation for the third Grand Slam of the year which begins on Monday June 25.
World number 25 Andy Roddick has battled for form and injury lately, however he heads into Wimbledon with some positivity after winning the AEGON International at Eastbourne, 6-3, 6-2 over Italian Andreas Seppi.
The result was three-time Wimbledon runner-up Roddick’s first title on grass court for five years and one which won’t go unnoticed as he snapped a poor run of form, promising to cause some havoc in London.
“I went from a six-match losing streak to all of a sudden winning a tournament - it is a 180-degree turnaround. I am thankful that it went my way this week,” Roddick said.
At the UNICEF Open in the Netherlands, world number five David Ferrer impressed on grass with a 6-3, 6-4 final triumph over German Philipp Petzschner.
