The three-time finalist will join the BBC's Wimbledon coverage this year serving as a tennis analyst for both television and radio.

“I'm honored to join the BBC team for Wimbledon," Roddick said in a statement. "The Championships will always have a special place in my heart, and I'm excited to come back to cover them."

Also joining the BBC this year will be former No. 1 and multiple Grand Slam winner Justine Henin who will be on radio coverage.

"I feel very excited," Henin said. "Wimbledon has produced a lot of memories for me and it’s great to be able to give something to the listeners.”

Roddick, who retired from tennis in 2012, reached three Wimbledon finals in 2004, 2005, and 2009.

The news of the former U.S. Open champion, known for his quick wit, joining the BBC's live coverage was hailed across social media. Praise also came from Roger Federer on Twitter.

Wimbledon begins on June 29th.
