NEW YORK — A foot-fault call made Andy Roddick become a twitching, motor-mouthed angry tennis player, and while Roddick's temper tantrum didn't include obscenities or threats directed toward the offending lineswoman, it also didn't provide him with a spark. In a rowdy atmosphere made noisier and more emotional after getting the first of four foot-fault calls in the third set, the ninth-seeded Roddick was upset by 44th-ranked Janko Tipsarevic 3-6, 7-5, 6-3, 7-6 (4) in a second-round U.S. Open match Wednesday night.

John McEnroe, one of the most popular tennis players in the world, will play in Pam Shriver's BTP Tennis Challenge on Dec. 9 at 1st Mariner Arena. McEnroe is known as much for his attitude as for his volleys and shot-making. Who will forget his 1981 Wimbledon meltdown, when he screamed, "You can't be serious!" at an umpire, or his rivalries with Bjorn Borg, Jimmy Connors and Ivan Lendl? During his playing career, which lasted from 1978 to 1992, he earned No. 1 world rankings in both singles and doubles, and he holds seven Grand Slam singles titles, as well as nine Grand Slam doubles titles and one Grand Slam mixed doubles title.

NEW YORK — Rafael Nadal came to Arthur Ashe Stadium wearing all black Tuesday night, and he also came armed with a new U.S. Open game plan. Nadal amped up his service power, and though he missed on his first seven service break points, he converted an eighth and on a hot day that turned into a long night, the top-seeded Nadal won his first-round U.S. Open match 7-6 (4), 7-6 (4), 6-3 over 93rd-ranked Teymuraz Gabashvili of Russia. The 24-year-old Spaniard has won eight major tournaments and at least one of the other three Grand Slams — the Australian and French Opens and Wimbledon — but has never gotten past the semifinals of the U.S. Open.

NEW YORK — It is a question that makes Venus Williams weary. Her eyes drop, her shoulders tighten. She is here at the U.S. Open — which begins Monday — a 30-year-old having won seven Grand Slams, and she does not want to talk about the starkness of this bit of information: Williams is the only American among the 32 women's seeds. Melanie Oudin, the bubbly teenager who giggled as she ran through the 2009 U.S. Open, shoving aside higher-rated, harder-hitting players with no evidence of nerves until she was halted in the quarterfinals by eventual runner-up Caroline Wozniacki, has won only a single match at the three majors this year.

WIMBLEDON, England — It was runner-up day at Wimbledon on Saturday. Venus Williams and Andy Roddick came to talk more about the possibilities than chances lost a year ago. Remember? Roddick left the grounds at the All England Club in 2009 with fans still chanting his name, and now, a year later, he came to practice Saturday and two groundskeepers shouted, "We love you, Andy." He has become beloved here for the fight he showed in a 5-7, 7-6 (6), 7-6 (5), 3-6, 16-14 loss to six-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer in the final.

Melanie Oudin is 18 with sparkling green eyes, a long, blond ponytail and the youthful enthusiasm that goes with a quarterfinal performance at September's U.S. Open. Her mixed doubles partner Wednesday night at Pam Shriver's 24th annual Baltimore Community Foundation Tennis Challenge was a gray-haired, 50-year-old, curmudgeonly veteran Tennis Hall of Famer named John McEnroe. "She's younger than four of my six kids," McEnroe said. "But she plays with a lot of energy, and I think that's why she did so well at the Open.

NEW YORK - - Melanie Oudin had four chances to seize her U.S. Open quarterfinal match against Caroline Wozniacki on Wednesday night. In the second set, on consecutive service games by Wozniacki, Oudin had four break-point opportunities, opportunities earned by cleverly aggressive plays, a willingness to try drop shots and take pace off passing shots. But each time Wozniacki narrowed her eyes and recovered. Because of that composure and also the way she calculated all the correct angles, the ninth-seeded Wozniacki ended the magical run of the 17-year-old Oudin.

The new women's event, called the Citi Open, is a WTA International tournament, which is below WTA Premier tournaments in terms of prestige and prize money.
