Retiring Andy Roddick has insisted that he has "loved every minute" of being a professional tennis player.
"I love you guys wilth all my heart," he told the crowd at the Arthur Ashe Stadium. "Hopefully I'll come back to this place someday and see you all again.
"One thing I'm not scared of about retirement are the people that I go home to."
Roddick won his one and only Grand Slam at Flushing Meadows back in 2003.
