WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Three-time finalist Andy Roddick has been stunned in the fourth round at Wimbledon by an 82nd-ranked Taiwanese player who hadn't won a match at the All England Club the past four years.

The fifth-seeded Roddick was ousted 6-4, 6-7 (3), 6-7 (4), 7-6 (5), 9-7 by Yen-hsun Lu on Monday in a match that lasted more than 4½ hours.

Lu sealed the victory in the 16th game of the fifth set with his only service break of the match.

The 26-year-old Lu had lost in the first round at Wimbledon four straight times and failed to win a match in his last five Grand Slams.

He's the first Asian man to reach the quarterfinals of any Grand Slam since Shuzo Matsuoka of Japan did it at Wimbledon in 1995.

Roddick had 38 aces but converted only one of eight break-point chances.
