American Andy Roddick won the Nasdaq 100 in Florida after Argentina's Guillermo Coria retired through injury.Second seed Roddick was 6-7 (2/7) 6-3 6-1 up when Coria succumbed to back pain that began after he lunged for a backhand late in the first set.
 


Coria seemed to be fine after treatment and easily won the first set tie-break but Roddick then stormed the next two sets to take the lead.Coria was then forced to quit after just three points of the fourth set.Roddick's victory is his 26th victory of the year.It had looked like Coria was going to seriously challenge that statistic, but Roddick turned up the pressure after losing the first set.He broke Coria for a 2-1 lead in the second set and again in the ninth game, to win the set. A Coria forehand lob landed just beyond the baseline on his next service game to hand Roddick a break for a 2-0 third-set lead. Roddick nabbed another with a forehand winner off a drop shot to lead 5-1 and held to win the set.Coria received another back rub before the fourth set but could not carry on.
