Roddick Loses First Opener in Mason

MASON, Ohio (AP) Andy Roddick lost to Phillipp Kohlschreiber 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-1 Monday in the first round of the Western & Southern Open.

The 11th-seeded Roddick already had received a warning from the chair umpire for flinging his racket to the court after losing the second set when he double-faulted in the second game of the third set to fall behind 30-40.

He smacked a ball high into the stands, earning a point penalty which gave the game and a 2-0 lead in the set to Kohlschreiber, who later closed it out with an ace.
