He will take on former world No. 1 Andy Roddick in the first meeting between the two legends.\r\n\r\n\u201cI am very excited to be a part of The Greenbrier Tennis Showcase,\u201d said Rafter, who will make his first appearance at The Greenbrier. \u201cI have heard great things about the event, the tennis venue and the resort, so when the opportunity presented itself it was an easy decision. Plus, having the opportunity to play against a player the quality of Andy Roddick made the decision even easier.\u201d\r\n\r\nRafter won the U.S. Open in 1997 and 1998, becoming the only Australian man in the Open era to win consecutive U.S. Open singles titles. This year marks the 20th anniversary of his first U.S. Open title.\r\n\r\nRafter was a two-time Wimbledon finalist in 2000 and 2001, and he also won the 1999 Australian Open doubles championship with Jonas Bjorkman. In total, Rafter won 11 career ATP singles titles and 10 career ATP doubles titles. He rose to No. 1 in the world in 1999 and was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 2006, five years after shoulder problems ended his career in 2001. Rafter served as Australia\u2019s Davis Cup captain from 2010 through 2015.\r\n\r\nHis opponent, Roddick, won the 2003 U.S. Open, was a finalist in four other Grand Slam tournaments and won 23 career ATP World Tour titles. He led the United States to a Davis Cup title in 2007, and has had a successful post-retirement career as a television analyst and host.\r\n\r\n\u201cI\u2019m thrilled to be coming back to The Greenbrier,\u201d said Roddick, who played Sampras in The Greenbrier Tennis Showcase in 2016. \u201cI\u2019ve enjoyed every trip I\u2019ve made to the beautiful resort, and I look forward to another challenging match against a fantastic opponent in Pat Rafter.\u201d\r\n\r\nMatch time for the best-of-three-set showdown is scheduled for 1:30 p.m.\r\n\r\nTickets for the lower bowl start at $100, with upper bowl seats starting at $35.
