American Andy Roddick had no trouble with Stephane Robert, cruising to a 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 victory in the first round of the 2010 U.S. Open. Roddick, the ninth seed, took care of a visibly nervous Robert, whose serve looked especially shaky at times.
Roddick didn't have to do much in the heat. Relying on his characteristically big serve (he averaged 123 MPH on first serves), Roddick, the 2003 U.S. Open champ, seemed to be on autopilot for most of the match. He had more unforced errors than Robert (25-23) but still needed only 102 minutes to dispatch his opponent.
