San Jose, California:

An injury-hampered Andy Roddick lost his composure and then the match, beaten 6-2, 6-4 by Denis Istomin on Friday in the quarterfinals of the SAP Open.

Hobbled by a fresh right ankle sprain and a troublesome hamstring that forced his retirement from last month's Australian Open, Roddick lost every point in his first service game and never regained his rhythm.

He slammed one racket, broke another, sailed a ball into the stands in frustration, argued with the chair umpire and even shouted at his own box.
