Roddick Advances to Round of 16

Andy Roddick has put retirement off for at least another two days, surviving a tough third-round match against Fabio Fognini of Italy on Sunday. Roddick, who announced his retirement on Thursday, won 7-5, 7-6 (1), 4-6, 6-4. An enthusiastic—and clearly emotional—Roddick was elated by his victory, throwing kisses to the crowd as well as a number of souvenirs including a shirt, towel, wristbands, and a racket. The crowd returned the affection with a standing ovation. Roddick beat Bernard Tomic of Australia in the previous round.
