Roddick endures another tough loss
NEW YORK -- In our memory, Andy Roddick will always be serving from behind this summer, bearing down to save his competitive life, scrambling to the top of a ladder only to have it teeter, sway and fall backward.
So it was during the epic fifth set of his agonizing loss to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon finals, and so it was during the last two sets of Roddick's U.S. Open third-round match against John Isner on Saturday. But the resemblance between the two defeats ends there.
