WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Three-time Wimbledon runner-up Andy
Roddick lost in the third round Saturday, beaten by No. 7-seeded
David Ferrer of Spain 2-6, 7-6 (8), 6-4, 6-3.
The 30th-seeded Roddick blew a kiss to the crowd at Centre Court
as he left.
Roddick, whose 2003 U.S. Open victory was the last Grand Slam
title for an American man, was broken four times. He had been on a
seven-match winning streak, including a title on grass as a wild
card at Eastbourne a week ago.
Ferrer, a semifinalist at the French Open, got to the round of
16 at the All England Club for the third consecutive year and
fourth time overall. He's never made it to the quarterfinals.
He faces No. 9 Juan Martin del Potro next.
