Roddick eliminated at Queens tournament

11:41 am on 14 June 2012

The former world tennis number one Andy Roddick has crashed out of the Wimbledon warmup tournament at Queens Club in London, beaten in three sets by the unseeded Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin.

Roddick has slipped out of the top 30 in the world rankings after an injury-ravaged campaign, but losing to Roger-Vasselin on his favourite surface is a new low for the American, who's lost 11 of his 18 matches this year.

The 29-year-old has won the Queens Club title four times, and Roddick recently hinted that this year's Wimbledon could be his last.
