Wimbledon: No. 5 Andy Roddick Loses First Set To Michael Llodra, 6-4

Three-time Wimbledon finalist Andy Roddick has lost the first set of his second round match against dangerous unseeded Frenchman Michael Llodra.

Llodra, who recently added former Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo as a coach, won the grass court event in Eastbourne last week and is on a six-match win streak.

Llodra has been effectively picking on Roddick’s backhand, and has also been effectively chipping to bring the American to net to set up passing shots.

Llodra has also been returning well, at one point winning six straight points on Roddick’s booming serve.
