Cincinnati: The other players

Quote

I see that Roddick got dumped in the first round and had a bit of an issy fit himself blink

MASON, Ohio, Aug 15 (Reuters) - An angry and frustrated Andy Roddick crashed out of the Cincinnati Open in the first round on Monday after suffering a three-set loss to 47th-ranked German Philipp Kohlschreiber.

Kohlschreiber advanced with a 6-7 7-5 6-1 victory but Roddick left the court complaining to the umpire after a bad-tempered display where he lost his cool.

Roddick was given a warning after throwing down his racket after losing the second set and whacked the ball high into the stands after double-faulting in the third set's second game.

The American was handed a penalty point for the incident, which gave the break to Kohlschreiber and Roddick, making frequent comments to the umpire, never regained his composure.

Rather than celebrate, Kohlschreiber left the court shaking his head at the scene while Roddick was left with a disappointing defeat to contemplate ahead of the U.S. Open that starts in a fortnight.

What shocking behavior from Roddick, he should be ashamed of himself.

Dodig and Monfils are hobbling, Rafa has finger problems. Explains why Andy is, I think, being extra careful with his prep for USOpen. I don't think he'll split a gut with this one.
