NEW YORK (AP) - Playing near perfect tennis, Andy Roddick has reached the U.S. Open quarterfinals by beating Fernando Gonzalez 6-2, 6-4, 6-1.
Roddick, the 2003 champion who is seeded eighth this year, made only seven unforced errors Tuesday night - 26 fewer than No. 11 Gonzalez.
Roddick also only faced one break point in the match. It came with him serving while ahead 3-1 in the third set, and it quickly vanished when Gonzalez pushed a forehand passing try wide.
In the quarterfinals, Roddick will face No. 3 Novak Djokovic, who needed five sets to win his fourth-round match against No. 15 Tommy Robredo.
