It didn’t take long for Andy Roddick to break his first racquet during the clay season. After missing the majority of the spring because of a hamstring injury, Roddick made his debut on his least favorite surface yesterday and was routinely dismissed by Argentine Carlos Berlocq 62, 62 at the Power Horse World Team Cup in Dusseldorf.

During the defeat Roddick snapped one of his Babolat racquets (at the :40 sec mark in the video).

“I didn’t play well. He played better than I did,” admitted Roddick. “I don’t think you expect to come out after a lay-off and play great. One of the best things about this event for me is that you get matches guaranteed. So I’ll go back to practice and do it again in a couple of days.”

Roddick is playing his first event since Miami.

Roddick’s teammate and future American alpha dog Ryan Harrison, who replaced the ailing Mardy Fish, also lost falling to Leonardo Mayer in three sets.
