Wimbledon: No. 5 Andy Roddick Forces Fifth Set Against Lu Yen-Hsun

Another set without a break led to the third consecutive tiebreak in the match. Roddick again started the tiebreak loosely, hitting a backhand into the net to give Lu a minibreak lead, which he extended to 3-0.

But Roddick earned the minibreak back to level the tiebreak at 3-3, and at 5-5 a Lu error gave Roddick set point, which Roddick promptly won with an ace out wide to level the match at two sets apiece and keep his Wimbledon run alive.

Lu will be serving first in the decisive fifth set.
