PARIS (AP) - Andy Roddick advanced to the fourth round of the French Open for the first time in his career, beating Marc Gicquel of France 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 Saturday.
The sixth-seeded Roddick is only the second American to reach the fourth round at Roland Garros since Andre Agassi in 2003. Robby Ginepri made the same stage last year.
Roddick has reached at least the semifinals at the other three Grand Slam tournaments, winning the U.S. Open in 2003.
