Wimbledon: No. 5 Andy Roddick Upset By Lu Yen-Hsun, 9-7 In Fifth Set

Three-time Wimbledon finalist No. 5 Andy Roddick suffered a shock upset at the hands of Taiwanese No. 82 Lu Yen-Hsun, falling 4-6, 7-6, 7-6, 6-7, 9-7 on Court 2.

Lu had not lost a set going into this match, and used his serve, speed, and forehand with lethal effect throughout the match.

Similar to his loss in the 2009 Wimbledon final to Roger Federer, Roddick was not broken until the final game of the match.

The shock loss will likely put Roddick a few spots lower on the rankings as his points from the 2009 final fall off.

Roddick’s loss combined with Sam Querrey’s loss to Andy Murray mean that there are no more men left in the Gentlemen’s Singles draw at Wimbledon. Both Venus and Serena Williams remain alive in the Ladies’ Singles.

Lu will now face No. 3 Novak Djokovic in a surprising quarterfinal match-up, bucking the conventional wisdom that had Roddick and Lleyton Hewitt reaching that stage of the tournament.
