Andy Roddick Forced to Retire from Queen's

Unfortunately, Andy Roddick has been forced to retire from his semi-final at Queen's after twisting his ankle in one of the early games. Running to the back of the court, Roddick was unlucky enough to twist his ankle when stepping on the edge of the court, which has a very small drop off to allow drainage. So, it will be American James Blake who meets Andy Murray in the Final of the Aegon Championships at Queen's Club on Sunday.

Commenting on his opponent's retirement James Blake said, "Normally he moves so well ... Today it just wasn't the same Andy Roddick." Speaking to the crowd afterwards Blake also took the opportunity to remind the crowd he was half British, we guess he's hoping for a bit more support on Sunday.
