"The couple wanted to tell their family and close friends first, but good news travels fast," read a message posted on Roddick official Web site.

"With their hectic travel schedules, Andy and Brooklyn plan to enjoy their engagement and will wait to set a wedding date."

Decker has appeared as a swimsuit model in Sports Illustrated magazine.

The 27-year-old Roddick, currently ranked sixth in the ATP rankings, owns one Grand Slam singles title -- the 2003 U.S. Open -- and has reached three other Grand Slam finals (Wimbledon twice and the U.S. Open).
