"Our 2012 field is off to a flying start with Andy and Ivan on board," said Delray Beach ITC Tournament Director Mark Baron. "We look forward to welcoming Andy back and seeing him play great tennis, and having Ivan play in Delray Beach for the first time is something I am looking forward to. He redefined the game."

The 28-year-old Roddick says he looks forward to returning to South Florida where he resided as a junior, and during his early years on tour.
"I am really looking forward to returning to Delray," said Roddick, winner of 30 ATP titles and 33 U.S. Davis Cup singles matches -- second only to John McEnroe. "I have a lot of great memories playing so close to where I grew up. You can truly feel the local support of the fans and the city for the tournament."
