Wimbledon Scores And Results: Andy Roddick Loses, Mardy Fish Advances

Andy Roddick gave it everything he had, but it simply wasn't enough.

Roddick will now head back across the Atlantic Ocean from the All England Club, after going down in his 3rd round match to Spain's David Ferrer, 2-6, 7-6 (10-8), 6-4, 6-3.

The 30th-seeded Roddick looked like he might be able to pull off the upset in the first set, beating Ferrer with all kinds of winners. Unfortunately for Roddick, Ferrer stepped up and showed why he's the No. 7 player in the world, starting with an epic second set in which he won the tiebreak.
