Federer-Roddick set for March match at MSG

NEW YORK — Roger Federer and Andy Roddick have met 22 times overall and in four Grand Slam finals, including a 16-14 fifth set at Wimbledon in 2009. Now they’re taking their rivalry to a new venue: Madison Square Garden.

Federer and Roddick will play a best-of-three-sets match as part of the annual BNP Paribas Showdown exhibition March 5, which also will include Maria Sharapova against top-ranked Caroline Wozniacki.

Federer owns a record 16 Grand Slam titles, and he’s 20-2 against Roddick, including 4-0 in major finals.

Federer faced Pete Sampras in an exhibition at MSG in 2008; Roddick never has played at the arena used for New York Knicks and New York Rangers games.

Tickets go on sale Oct. 3.
