Andy Roddick even ready to intern as joblessness seems to have hit a peak for the former US star
Former American tennis star Andy Roddick is the lookout for a new job with little or no work to do as part of the coronavirus isolation.
The 2003 US Open champion is currently undergoing self-quarantine at his home. This is part of the mandatory precautionary methods required to curb the spread of the pandemic virus.
The lack of work seems to have affected the former professional who took to Twitter to express his frustration.
Roddick posted a job-request on social media, requesting Tennis Channel to offer him some work in his old industry.

Roddick retired from the game of tennis after the 2012 US Open after turning professional back in 2000.
The former professional had distanced himself from his old industry and had put the sport behind him for the most part after his retirement.
Since then he has been giving his entire focus to the Andy Roddick Foundation which serves at-risk youth and children in Austin, Texas.
