2012 U.S. Open Results: Andy Roddick Wins In Straight Sets

Andy Roddick, who announced he will retire from tennis after the U.S. Open, advanced in the 2012 U.S. Open. Roddick defeated Australian Bernard Tomic in straight sets by a score of 6-3, 6-4 and 6-0. Roddick was dominant in his second -ound match, but leading into the match, he was not sure how he would play since he announced his retirement on Thursday:

''I had no idea what was going to happen out there,'' Roddick said. ''I've played a lot of matches and that was a different kind of nerves than I've had before, so that was surprising for me.''

[...]

"I look forward to it,'' the 20th-seeded Roddick said during an on-court interview with one of his former coaches, Brad Gilbert, "and I'm going to try to stick around a little longer.''

Perhaps Roddick will be more relaxed and make a deep U.S. Open run since he knows this is his last go around. Up next for Roddick is Fabio Fognini.
