Rome:

Andy Roddick pulled out of the doubles final at the Italian Open because of a right shoulder injury, with the French Open just a week away.

Roddick was scheduled to team up with fellow American Mardy Fish, and his withdrawal handed the title to another pair of Americans, John Isner and Sam Querrey.

The ATP says Roddick has not withdrawn from the tournament set to start in Nice, France, on Monday. He has a first-round bye in singles and could play his opener as late as Wednesday.

In the Rome singles draw, the 12th-ranked Roddick was beaten by Gilles Simon of France in the first round. Roddick and Fish upset the top-seeded Bryan brothers in the quarterfinals of the doubles tournament.
