Andy Roddick is taking a new, lighter approach to the clay-court season. After beating Greg Rusedski 6-4, 6-2 Monday in the first round of the Italian Open, Roddick said he had dropped 5 pounds off his 6-foot-2 frame. ``I worked a lot harder off the court with my fitness,'' the top-seeded Roddick said.
