Andy Roddick upset in 1st round
MASON, Ohio -- Andy Roddick lost to Phillipp Kohlschreiber 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-1 Monday in the first round of the Western & Southern Open.
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.
The 38th-ranked Fognini beat the 16th-ranked Troicki for first time in three matches.
"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.
