American James Blake announces plan to retire following US Open
James Blake announced Monday that the US Open would be his final tournament.
Roddick retired after the same tournament last year.
"This is my last tournament," Blake said at a press conference. "It took me a while to come to this decision, but I'm really happy with it, and comfortable with it."
Blake, 33, reached a high world ranking of No. 4 in 2006, though he was never able to break through for a Grand Slam victory. He won 10 times on tour, most recently in '07.
