Roddick loses in quarterfinals at Australian Open

BY foxsports • January 26, 2010

An injured Andy Roddick is out of the Australian Open, beaten 7-6 (4), 6-3, 3-6, 2-6, 6-3 by Croatia's Marin Cilic in the quarterfinals.

At end of first set Tuesday, No. 7 Roddick took a medical time out to have his right shoulder worked on. He told the trainer that he was experiencing pain when he served and ``tingling in my hand.''

He had several additional treatments during changeovers as he fell behind two sets.

Despite playing strongly in the third and fourth sets to level the match, Roddick fell apart in the final set, allowing No. 14 Cilic to break twice and send the last American man out of the singles draw.

Roddick's only major has been the 2003 U.S. Open.
