Andy Roddick's exit from the French Open yesterday made him the last of 10 Americans to leave the tournament. "This hasn't been our place for a couple of years now," Roddick said after his 3-6, 6-3, 6-7 (5/7), 6-3, 6-2 loss to Frenchman Olivier Mutis. In the Open era, the only other Grand Slams tournaments where no American men made it to the third round where the 1972 and 1973 Australian Opens, which no Americans entered. No. 6 Andre Agassi's shock first-round loss to 271st-ranked Jerome Haehnel on Monday set the tone. Haehnel, who had never won a Tour match before, couldn't keep the momentum. The Frenchman lost in the second round to countryman Michael Llodra 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-1. Other American losers were: Vince Spadea, Kevin Kim, Taylor Dent, Jeff Salzenstein, Alex Bogomolov Jr., Jan-Michael Gambill, Robby Ginepri, Todd Martin. (AP)
