Roddick powers on
Germany's Tommy Haas
Germany's Tommy Haas took the opening set
Andy Roddick impressed in the battle of the teenagers at the US Open as he dismissed Tommy Robredo in quick time.

Roddick, last year's junior champion, beat his Spanish opponent 6-2 6-2 6-4.

"You know, I don't believe it," he said.

However he seems to be enjoying himself and said: "It's good to be a part of it for the first time."

Roddick will face either Lleyton Hewitt or Tommy Haas in the next round.

Their fourth round match, interrupted by rain on Tuesday, is to be concluded on Wednesday.

The 16th seed Haas won the first set 6-3, with the second set level at 2-2.

The fourth seed Hewitt had won the first point of the fifth game on his serve when the heavens opened.

The rain then stopped, but officials did not want the match to interfere with the night programme.

Ticketing arrangements for the US Open demand that the Arthur Ashe stadium is emptied of fans to allow entry to a new group of ticket holders.
