Men's second seed Andy Roddick was a shock casualty on Wednesday. His claycourt misery continued with Olivier Mutis the player responsible for Roddick's exit - and prior to Roland Garros he had not won a match on the ATP Tour this season.
 

The little-known Frenchman, ranked 153 in the world, dug deep to shock the American, winning 3-6 6-3 6-7 6-3 6-2. Roddick looked comfortable in the first set, but began to struggle in the second which the Frenchman took.

The American won a tie-breaker and looked to be back on track, but Mutis refused to give up and Roddick began to lose his form, before crashing out. Roddick's erratic effort showed he's still learning how to play on clay.

The reigning U.S. Open champion blew an easy volley to lose serve in the opening game of the final set, then began to play too aggressively. He became increasingly dispirited as his mistakes mounted and fell behind 5-0. Roddick's record at Roland Garros in the past three years fell to 1-3.

Yep they just don't seem to be able to do it. I didn't think Roddick would go very far but i thought maybe quarter finals.
