Roddick’s Match Postponed
Rain prevented any men's singles matches from being completed at Wimbledon on Wednesday. The fourth rain delay of the day ended play at the All-England championships.
Only two of today's four scheduled quarterfinals were started. Thirteenth-seed sebastien grosjean (groh-zhahn') of France leads Britain's tenth-seeded Tim Henman two sets to one, with the score currently 7-6, 3-6, 6-3, 1-2. Alexander Popp won the first two sets against mark Philippoussis (fihl-ih-poo'-sihs) 6-4, 6-4, but then Philippoussis responded by winning the third and fourth sets 6-3, 6-3. They're tied 2-2 in the decisive fifth set, with Philippoussis serving and leading 30-love. Fifth-seed Andy Roddick and sweden's Jonas Bjorkman (yoh'-nuhs byork'-mun) didn't start their match. Neither did fourth-seed Roger Federer and eighth-seed Sjeng Schalken (cheng shall'-ken). Everything not completed today is pushed back to tomorrow.
