Brooklyn Decker, wife of Andy Roddick of the US, reacts after he was defeated by Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina in the men's singles.

"I fell right on the back end of the golden generation, and so that was just the cards that were dealt," Roddick said, after his 6-7, 7-6, 6-2, 6-4 loss to 2009 Open champion del Potro.
