MEMPHIS, TENN. (AP) - Andy Roddick won the 30th title of his career in his 50th final Sunday, finishing off a thrilling 7-6 (7), 6-7 (11), 7-5 victory over Canadian Milos Raonic in the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships.

Roddick polished off the 2-hour, 36-minute match by diving to put his racket on the ball for a winner down the line that broke the 20-year-old Raonic for the victory.

The top-seeded Roddick becomes the eighth American with at least 30 titles, only three behind the late Arthur Ashe. He also has at least one title in 11 straight years, something only Roger Federer has done among active players.

Roddick picked up the $264,000 winner’s check, his third in Memphis. He also becomes only the third player to win at least three titles in Memphis, joining Tommy Haas (1999, 2006-07) and Jimmy Connors, who won four (1978-78, 1983-84).
