Delray Beach, Florida:

Andy Roddick is hoping to turn around a dismal season so far at the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships.

The fourth-seeded Roddick, who has slipped to No. 30 in the rankings, usually does well in the first couple of months of the year. He has traditionally fared well at the indoor tournaments in February, he's won the Memphis and San Jose titles three times each.

But he's battling injuries. A right hamstring injury forced him to abandon his Australian Open second-round match, and he sustained a right ankle injury during his opening match at San Jose two weeks ago.

Roddick will face Philipp Petzschner of Germany in a first-round match at Delray Beach on Tuesday.
