Andy Roddick: 'I should have donated trophies that I threw out'

Through his official Twitter account, Andy Roddick spoke about the shocking revelation that his wife Brooklyn Decker made about him throwing out basically all of his tennis trophies won in career. The former World No. 1, who won 32 ATP Career titles, stressed he didn't throw away in the garbage all of the trophies won, and that he still has some of them.

'I did let go of a lot of them though.... agreed I should have donated them instead', he admitted. Explaining why he took this decision, Roddick added: 'It wasn't all that planned out. Moving houses etc. .... I should have done that.

Wish I would've thought it through a bit more.' Interviewed by People Magazine a few weeks ago, Decker had said: 'We have his (2003) US Open trophy. But all his other trophies Andy threw away in the garbage. It was really upsetting.

He did it one day when I was out of town. [He] decided that these don’t mean success to me, these don’t define me and I don’t really care to have these material things sitting around the house, so he threw them in the trash.

I think he saved a few but they are not on display.'
