No. 5 Andy Roddick Beats Tricky No. 29 Philipp Kohlschreiber in Four Sets

No. 5 Andy Roddick has defeated No. 29 Philipp Kohlschreiber 7-5, 6-7(5), 6-3, 6-3 to advance to the fourth round of the Wimbledon Gentlemen’s Singles competition.

This was far from an old-school Roddick win, with the three-time Wimbledon finalist relying more on slices and angles than power in most of the points he won.

Roddick gets a bit of a break in the next round against Lu Yen-Hsun of Chinese Taipei, before playing the winner of a blockbuster fourth round match-up between Lleyton Hewitt and Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals.
