Andy Roddick is leaving Wimbledon without the champion's trophy once again. Only this time, he heads home much earlier than a year ago, and after being beaten by a far-less-accomplished opponent.

The No. 5-seeded American erased an early deficit Monday to even his fourth-round match against 82nd-ranked Lu Yen-hsu of Taiwan, then got broken for the only time all day in the very last game and lost 4-6, 7-6 (3), 7-6 (4), 6-7 (5), 9-7 despite hitting 38 aces.

Former No. 1 Roddick went into the match as clear favorite after winning all three previous meetings in straight sets. Lu, on the other hand, arrived last week with a record of six wins and 18 losses in majors, including five consecutive first-round exits.
