Wimbledon 2012 Seeding: Andy Roddick Fading At No. 30

Three years after losing an epic Wimbledon final, the Texas resident is nowhere near the top of the men's game.

It was only three years ago that Andy Roddick pushed Roger Federer to the brink in a fifth-set tiebreaker in the Wimbledon final.

Yet, in the world of tennis, it's been a lifetime.

Federer has won only one major championship since, going from the clear cut No. 1 player in the world to possibly the least dangerous of the four players (Novak Djokovic, Rafa Nadal, Federer and Andy Murray) who have separated themselves from the rest of the sport.

Roddick, meanwhile, is now on the wrong side of 30 as his career has slowly ground to a halt. Wimbledon's grass courts, because of how well they reward serving, have always been one of his favorites, but the Austin resident may not be getting many more chances to play on them.

He's ranked No. 30 in the 2012 Wimbledon draw, and the chances of him making a deep run are slim indeed.
