runner-up Andy Roddick was sent tumbling out of the Wimbledon third
round 7-6 7-6 6-4 by Spain's Feliciano Lopez on Friday.
The American eighth seed
started in a fiery mood under rare south London sunshine, reeling off a
string of aces but after an exchange of breaks in the first set he lost
his way in the tiebreak.
number 44 Lopez took confidence from seizing the initiative and also
shone in the second set tiebreak as the two big servers otherwise
cancelled each other out on Centre Court.
He sealed a famous straight-sets victory when Roddick fired wide.
