Roddick to Take on Djokovic at Olympics


Mon. 30 July, 2012  | rian

World No. 2 Novak Djokovic will meet former U.S. Open champion Andy Roddick in the second round of the Olympic tennis tournament after the American beat Slovakia’s Martin Klizan on Monday.

Roddick forced his way past Klizan 7-5, 6-4 thanks to late breaks in both sets as the Slovak, ranked 52nd in the world, put up stiff resistance.

The Olympic tennis is being played at Wimbledon, where Djokovic won last year and Roddick has reached the final three times, most recently in 2009.

Croatia’s 13th seed Marin Cilic will face 2002 Wimbledon champion Lleyton Hewitt in the second round after beating Austria’s Jurgen Melzer 7-6(5), 6-2.

"It was not as comfortable as I thought it was going to be,” Cilic said.

“In the first set I had a break and then I thought I'm going to get that first set done but Jurgen played really well at the end of the first set and made me a little uncomfortable on the court.”

Elsewhere in the draw, France’s world No. 20 Richard Gasquet beat 33rd-ranked Robin Haas of the Netherlands 6-3, 6-3, while there was also a win for Canada’s Milos Raonic.

In the women’s competition, world No. 7 Angelique Kerber reached the second round after her Czech opponent Petra Cetkovska withdrew at 6-1, 3-0 down, and will now face Timea Babos of Hungary.

Canada’s Alexandra Wozniak awaits the winner of the first-round tie between Venus Williams and Sara Errani after she beat New Zealand’s Marina Erakovic 6-2, 6-1.

Spanish player Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez made up 28 ranking places to upset Slovenia’s Polona Hercog 6-2, 6-4 and could play Victoria Azarenka in the second round if the Belarusian world No. 1 beats Romania’s Irina-Camelia Begu on Monday.
