NEW YORK (AP) - Andy Roddick has won his first-round match at the U.S. Open in straight sets.

The 2003 U.S. Open champion was forced to wait until after 11p.m. Monday night to get on court in Arthur Ashe Stadium for the last match on the Day 1 schedule at Flushing Meadows, then made quick work of 84th-ranked Bjorn Phau of Germany, beating him 6-1, 6-4, 6-2.

They finished at 12:45 a.m. Tuesday.

Roddick was bleeding from his right ear during the match and got into a bit of a back-and-forth with the chair umpire over it.

Pounding serves at up to 145 mph, Roddick finished with 13 aces. He put 81 percent of his first serves in.
