No. 5 seed Andy Roddick, last year's runner-up, lost in five sets to unseeded Yen-hsun Lu in the fourth round today at Wimbledon. Lu, 26, of Taiwan won 4-6, 7-6 (3), 7-6 (4), 6-7 (5), 9-7 to reach the quarterfinals. He converted his only break point in the final set to secure the victory over Roddick in 4 hours, 36 minutes.
Lu, ranked 82nd in the world, had previously never advanced beyond the second round at Wimbledon, or the third round in any Grand Slam. He becomes the first Asian man since Japan's Shuzo Matsuoka at Wimbledon in 1995 to reach the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam and will next face Novak Djokovic.
