Andy Roddick, America's highest hope at Roland Garros, has withdrawn with a right shoulder injury.

Roddick has never gotten further than the fourth round at Roland Garros, and the likelihood of his participation seemed remote when he withdrew from the Nice Open earlier this week because of the injury, which he sustained during the Rome Masters.
