Wimbledon: Andy Roddick wins Eastbourne final

ANDY Roddick warmed up for Wimbledon, and his first-round tie against Scotland’s Jamie Baker, with a 6-3 6-2 victory over Andreas Seppi to win the AEGON International championship title on Saturday.

Roddick, a wildcard entry to the tournament following his early exit at Queen’s, was broken in the opening game of the final. But the American was hardly troubled again by Seppi, last year’s Eastbourne champion, as he cruised into a 4-1 lead before clinching the opening set. Roddick broke Seppi twice in the second set to wrap up his 31st ATP tour title, and his first since winning in Memphis last year.
