Top-seeded Andy Roddick struggled before advancing past 14th-seeded Juan Ignacio Chela of Argentina in three sets at the Legg Mason Tennis Classic on Thursday night. Roddick won 85 percent of his first-serve points and took advantage of nine double-faults by Chela to win 6-4, 6-7 (4), 6-4. Clearly frustrated throughout the match, Roddick was able to win despite an admittedly below-par performance.
