Andy Roddick suffered a third-round loss as he was beaten 7-6 (7-2) 7-6 (7-2) 6-4 by Spain’s Feliciano Lopez.

Feliciano Lopez celebrates a point

Both men offered few breaking opportunities on serve, forcing the first two sets to tie-breaks won by Lopez, ranked 44 in the world. Eighth seed Roddick’s 16 unforced errors proved crucial as Lopez broke his serve in the third set. And he held on for his first victory in eight attempts against Roddick.

“It was a great win for me, I have never beaten Andy,” an estatic Lopez told BBC Sport. “Even leading two-sets to love I knew that he would still be a great fighter as he is such a great player. “It’s a very important win. I was a little nervous towards the end as it’s always difficult to close out a match.” Two-time quarter-finalist Lopez will play either France’s ninth seed Gael Monfils or Poland’s Lukasz Kubot in the last 16.
