BB&T Atlanta Open 2012: Andy Roddick Comes Back To Defeat Gilles Muller

Things certainly didn't start well for Andy Roddick but he certainly won't complain about how things turned out. Roddick overcame losing the first set 1-6 by winning the next two sets 7-6(2) and 6-2 to win the Atlanta Open. The win continues a strong streak for Roddick who has now won two of his last three events and 11 of his last 12 matches. Roddick now has 32 career tour wins which places him third among active players.

Roddick won three matches to reach the finals including knocking off top seeded John Isner in the semifinals on Saturday. Muller was denied his first tour victory in three tries. His last appearance in a tournament final came seven years ago against Andre Agassi.

Next stop for Roddick will be with the U.S. team next week when the Olympics begin at Wimbledon.
