Andy Roddick pulled out of next week's U.S. Open tuneup at Los Angeles because of soreness in his right knee. The hard-court tournament announced the withdrawal Friday, a few hours after the 2003 U.S. Open champion lost in three sets to Robby Ginepri in the quarterfinals at Indianapolis. Roddick didn't mention the injury in his postmatch news conference.
