Andy Roddick Out at US Open
In a huge upset, Andy Roddick loses to Janko Tipsarevic during the second round of the men’s singles match of the 2010 U.S. Open held at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing, New York on Wedesday (September 1).
Just two days after his birthday, the 28-year-old U.S. tennis champ fell to his 26-year-old Serbian opponent in four sets, 3-6, 7-5, 6-3, 7-6 (4).
However, the game also had some controversy due to a call by the court lineswoman. During the match, Andy was called for a foot fault, an offense he rarely commits. The ninth seed tennis star ended up arguing with the chair umpire after the lineswoman claimed his right foot had crossed the line, when in reality it was his left.
“I just expect my umpire to know the left foot from the right foot. Then I let it marinate,” Andy told the LA Times. “In the moment, I was just stupefied.”
This is the first time Andy lost in the second round at the U.S. Open.
