Andy Roddick lost at China Open

BEIJING (AP)—Andy Roddick lost to South Africa’s Kevin Anderson 4-6, 5-7 in the first round of the China Open on Monday, a defeat the sixth-seeded American called “unacceptable.” On the women’s side, top-ranked Caroline Wozniacki rallied from a set down to beat...
Lucie Hradecka of the Czech Republic 3-6, 6-0, 7-5. Roddick managed to handle Anderson’s huge serve but struggled with his own and was broken in the seventh game to go one set down. The second set brought more of the same. While Roddick evened things up at 5-5, Anderson’s momentum carried him through. “If I break twice and don’t win a set that says my serve isn’t on,” Roddick said. “It’s unacceptable.” Among the men, Marin Cilic of Croatia defeated Chinese wild card Di Wu 6-2, 6-0; Feliciano Lopez of Spain beat Marsel Ilhan of Turkey 6-2, 7-6 (6); Fernando Verdasco of Spain topped Michael Llodra of France 6-2, 6-4;Florian Mayer of Germany ousted Albert Ramos of Spain 6-2, 6-4; and Flavio Cipolla of Italy defeated Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine 6-1, 1-6, 6-0.
