2010 Shanghai Round 3 = Tomas Berdych vs Guillermo Garcia-Lopez

Posted on October 13, 2010 at 10:07 AM

Tomas Berdych was due to face the winner of the second-round encounter between Guillermo Garcia-Lopez – who defeated world No. 1 Nadal in the semi-finals of the Thailand Open just a couple of weeks ago – and Andy Roddick as he bids to book a place in the quarter-finals. What happened on Wednesday? Tenth-seeded American Roddick wom the first set 6-3 against Spaniard Guillermo Garcia-Lopez and was eyeing a third round spot when he pulled up at 2-3 down in the second with a groin strain. Roddick's retirement mirrored that of his first round opponent 24 hours earlier when German Philipp Kohlschreiber had to retire in the early stages of the second set. Roddick retires, gives Garcia Lopez open access to the next round against Tomas Berdych.
