The 11th-seeded Roddick already had received a warning from the chair umpire for flinging his racket to the court after losing the second set when he double-faulted in the second game of the third set to fall behind 30-40.

He smacked a ball high into the stands, earning a point penalty which gave the game and a 2-0 lead in the set to Kohlschreiber, who later closed it out with an ace.

Also in Monday's first round, Italy's Fabio Fognini upset 14th-seeded Viktor Troicki of Serbia 6-4, 6-1.

The 38th-ranked Fognini beat the 16th-ranked Troicki for first time in three matches.

France's Richard Gasquet became the first seeded man to advance without a bye. The 14th-seeded Gasquet needed a second-set tiebreaker to overcome Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-1, 7-6 (4).

"I did a pretty good tiebreak," Gasquet said. "There was a lot of tension, but I knew it was important because, in the third set, you never know what can happen, so I'm happy."

Alex Bogomolov Jr. cruised past Robby Ginepri 6-4, 6-3 in a matchup of Americans.

Spain's Fernando Verdasco defeated Brazil's Thomaz Bellucci 6-3, 7-6 (4), Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov beat Turkey's Marsel Ilhan 6-3, 7-5, Feliciano Lopez fought off fellow Spaniard Juan Carlos Ferrero 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, and Argentina's David Nalbandian beat Japan's Kai Nishikori 6-4, 6-4.

American wild-card Ryan Harrison ousted Argentina's Juan Ignacio Chela 6-3, 6-3, and Chela's countryman, Juan Monaco, came from behind to beat Tommy Haas of Germany 6-7 (5), 6-4, 6-3.
