Guillermo Canas, who a day earlier upset Roger Federer to end the Swiss star’s winning streak at 41 matches, was ousted by Carlos Moya in the third round. Moya beat Canas 6-4, 6-4. Janko Tipsarevic, who had defeated Lleyton Hewitt on Sunday, also lost his third-round match. David Ferrer eliminated him 6-1, 6-3. No. 2 Rafael Nadal beat Fernando Verdasco 6-4, 6-4 in their night match, running his record to 5-0 against his fellow Spaniard. Roddick said having Federer, who has won the tournament the past three years, eliminated is both a plus and a minus. “I want to beat Roger. Obviously, it helps out everybody, it takes the toughest player out of the draw,” Roddick said. “But at the same time, I’m going to have to figure it out one of these times anyway. INDIAN WELLS – Andy Roddick served 18 aces, one clocked at 147 mph, on his way to a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory over Olivier Rochus in the third round of the Pacific Life Open on Monday. Roddick overcame 33 unforced errors with his strong serve and well-placed forehands. Rochus made 12 fewer unforced errors than his American opponent, but did not have a single ace. “You can’t sit back and hope that he loses because that’s not going to happen a lot.” Roddick is off to a 16-3 start in 2007, but looking for his first title of the year. Each of his three defeats came at the hands of the eventual tournament champion, including a loss to Federer in the Australian Open semifinals, a semifinal loss to Andy Murray at San Jose, and a runner-up finish to Tommy Haas at Memphis. Roddick also won both his matches in the United States’ 4-1 victory last month over the Czech Republic in the first round of Davis Cup play. Blake, asked what went wrong in his match against Benneteau, said, “Everything.” “I didn’t serve very well, I didn’t return very well, I could have played better on big points,” Blake said. “I couldn’t get a lot of momentum going, couldn’t find my rhythm. Just one of those days.” On the women’s side, second-seeded Svetlana Kuznetsova defeated another Russian, Elena Likhovtseva, 6-1, 7-6 (4). 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
