  • Berdych destroys Roddick in Dusseldorf

    Berdych destroys Roddick in Dusseldorf Andy Roddick's clay-court exploits continue to be virtually non-existent as he goes down to Tomas Berdych in straight sets on Tuesday in Dusseldorf. Team USA gets swept by the Czech Republic.


    Tomas Berdych made quick work of Andy Roddick with a 6-1, 6-2 blowout at the World Team Cup on Tuesday afternoon. Berdych rolled in one hour and one minute to give the Czech Republic a 1-0 lead over the United States.

    Roddick, who had not played since the Sony Ericsson prior to this week, appears to be doing little more than putting in a few practice sessions on clay in time for the French Open. The veteran American served at an awful 44 percent and won a horrendous 39 percent of the points even when he made a first serve.

    Berdych fired 12 aces to his opponent's zero while winning all 23 of his first-serve points. The seventh-ranked Czech did not face a single break point the entire way. Berdych earned two breaks in each set and dropped a mere nine points in eight service games as he eventually closed things out with a love hold at 5-1 in the second.

    The Czechs finished off Team USA when Radek Stepanek eased past James Blake 6-2, 6-1. Stepanek lost only 10 points in seven service games and never faced a break point.
