Roddick upset at Hamburg Masters
HAMBURG, Germany (AP) -- Top-ranked Roger Federer won his first match after a three-week injury layoff while Andy Roddick lost in the opening round of the Hamburg Masters and Rafael Nadal withdrew because of a cut hand.
Federer, recovering from an inflammation to both feet, defeated Fernando Verdasco 6-4, 6-3 in this $2.7 million clay-court tuneup for the French Open, which begins May 23.
Roddick, seeded second, was beaten by Chile's Nicolas Massu 7-6 (4), 4-6, 7-5. Nadal, the ATP Tour's hottest player, was joined on the injury list by seventh-seeded Carlos Moya, who pulled out because of an ailing right shoulder.
Enjoying first-round victories were Gustavo Kuerten, the 2000 Hamburg winner and three-time French Open champion, and fifth-seeded Tim Henman.
Federer was rusty at first but soon found his rhythm on a cool, wet afternoon. The longer the rallies, the steadier the Swiss star played against Verdasco, the Rome Masters quarterfinalist last week.
