Roddick Wins Third Straight Queen's Title

Roddick Wins Third Straight Queen's Title
Updated: Sunday, Jun. 12, 2005 - 11:17 AM

LONDON (AP) - Andy Roddick won his third consecutive title at Queen's on Sunday, defeating 6-foot-10 Ivo Karlovic 7-6 (7), 7-6 (4) to join Lleyton Hewitt and John McEnroe as the only players to win this Wimbledon tuneup three straight times.

Roddick reached the Wimbledon final last season and the semifinal two years ago, losing both times to Roger Federer.

On an overcast, breezy day, Roddick recorded his 15th straight victory at Queen's. Karlovic, a Croat who relies on a powerful serve, was playing in his first ATP final and had not dropped a set at Queen's in reaching the final.

Roddick squandered three break points in the second game of the first set, and neither player faced another break chance in the set or match. Roddick won the tiebreaker 9-7, the victory coming on his fifth set point _ all in the tiebreaker. In the 41-minute set, Karlovic managed seven aces and Roddick had five.

In the second set, Roddick won the tiebreaker and the match with a service winner. He finished with 10 aces, and Karlovic had 16 in the 80-minute match.

Federer, the defending champion at Wimbledon, will be the favorite when the Grand Slam event begins June 20, with Roddick, Hewitt and Marat Safin among the contenders.

Re: Roddick Wins Third Straight Queen's Title

We already have a tournament thread, which is a sticky at the top of the forum (the grass season thread). To keep the board easier to read, we'd rather have only one thread for each tournament, so I'll close this one. Thanks
