Roddick gets upset by foot-fault call at Open

Andy Roddick carried on a lengthy argument with a U.S. Open

lineswoman over a foot-fault call Wednesday night – although it

wasn’t nearly the sort of tirade Serena Williams delivered a year

ago, nor did it come at as crucial a moment.

The call was made while Roddick trailed in the third set of what

would become a 3-6, 7-5, 6-3, 7-6 (4) loss to Janko Tipsarevic in

the second round.

Roddick asked the line judge which foot crossed the baseline,

and she told him it was his right foot.

”That’s impossible,” Roddick snapped.

He continued berating the official between points, making a joke

about ”1-800-Rent-a-Ref.”

A TV replay showed Roddick did commit a foot fault – but with

his left foot.

The lineswoman was not on court at the start of the fourth

set.
