2012 U.S. Open Scores: Andy Roddick Falls In 4th Round, Plans To Retire

2003 U.S. Open champion Andy Roddick fell in four sets to Juan Martin del Potro on Wednesday by the score of 6-7 (1), 7-6 (4), 6-2, 6-4, ending the 31-year old's professional tennis career as Roddick plans to retire.

The seventh seeded Spaniard and 2009 U.S. Open champ needed patience to put away Roddick as a pair of weather delays caused the match to be played over the course of the last two days.

Roddick finished the match with 20 aces and 57 winners, but also had 47 unforced errors on the day as well, compared to just 31 by del Potro. Del Potro will now play the winner of the Roger Federer vs. Tomas Berdych match in the semifinals.
