Roddick blasted 10 aces en route to a 6-0, 6-3, 6-4 win over the left-handed Spaniard. First encounter This was the first meeting between Roddick, who is already a dominating player on the ATP Tour, and the upstart Nadal. Roddick is trying to return to championship form after losing to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon final and most recently in the third round of the Athens Olympics. In the women's singles, crowd favourite Serena Williams was up against French teenager Tatiana Golovin.
