Andy Roddick withdrew from the hardcourt Rogers Cup tournament on Sunday, citing an injury that forced him to pull out of another US Open tuneup last week. "Unfortunately, my side strain is still preventing me from being able to play matches," Roddick said in a statement. "I will be working hard this week and I am optimistic to be back in top form for the US Open". Roddick had strained the lower left side of his back while playing in an event in Los Angeles last month and pulled out before the quarterfinals. Then he withdrew from the hardcourt tournament in Washington. Roddick, the 2003 US Open champion and former world No 1, is 10th in the current rankings. Andre Agassi had pulled out of the Rogers Cup on Friday. The US Open begins on August 28. (AP)
