Possible contender and No. 9 seed Andy Roddick has been dispatched from the 2010 U.S. Open at the hands of unseeded Janko Tipsarevic in four sets. The American hope looked strong at the start but dropped the final three sets in losing 6-3, 5-7, 3-6, 6-7(4).

The 2003 champion was unable to break Tipsarevic from the middle of the second set on. The Serbian impoves to a 2-1 career record against Roddick, all in grand slam play.

Tipsarevic will face Gael Monfils in the next round. It was the first time he advanced to the third round of the U.S. Open while it was the first time Roddick had lost in the second round.

The loss wraps up a disappointing grand slam season for Roddick, whose chances are slipping away at another major as hes heading into the downside of his career.
