HOUSTON (AP) - Wayne Odesnik of the United States pulled another
upset at the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships on Wednesday,
beating third-seeded Jurgen Melzer of Austria 6-4, 6-0 in the second round at River Oaks Country Club.

Fourth-seeded Jeremy Chardy of France met Guillermo Garcia-Lopez
of Spain, and former No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt of Australia played Sergio Roitman of Argentina later in the second round.

Top-seeded James Blake and No. 2-seeded Mardy Fish were eliminated in first-round matches along with three other seeds in the first two days. The upsets marked the first time that only three seeds made it to the second round since the clay court tournament went to a 32-player format in 1988.
