World No. 8 Andy Roddick says he feels at full strength for the first time in more than six months after overcoming the strength-sapping illness mononucleosis.

Roddick said he fought the illness for most of this past year, when he failed to reach the quarterfinals at Wimbledon and the French and US Opens.

He said on Wednesday he had worked hard to regain his fitness during the recent offseason and is looking toward next week's Brisbane Invitational as a springboard into a better 2011.
