Andy Roddick has fallen in the SAP Open. Roddick lost 6-2 6-4 to Denis Istomin who outclassed Roddick from the outset. Roddick has been struggling a lot with injuries recently (including a rolled ankle in this tournament), but his game tonight let him down.. not his fitness. Roddick slammed one racquet, broken another and has a shouting match with the chair umpire. Very dramatic, but overall a bit of a let down.
“It would be abnormal if you weren’t frustrated,” said Roddick, who still plans to play at next week’s ATP Tour stop in Memphis, Tenn. “The question is, ‘How do you figure your way through it?'”
