US OPEN 2004
Andy Roddick vs  Joachim Johansson


6-4 6-4 3-6 2-6 6-4


Swede Joachim Johansson has pulled off the biggest upset of the U.S. Open by knocking out crowd

favorite Andy Roddick in a marathon five-setter.   The unheralded Johansson, seeded 28th, unleashed 30 aces to advance

 to his first U.S. Open semifinal with a 6-4 6-4 3-6 2-6 6-4 victory over the defending champion.  Roddick was upset 6-4, 6-4, 3-6, 2-6, 6-4 Thursday night by another 22-year-old brandishing a powerful serve and forehand, but also someone who's won just one title, was playing in his first major quarterfinal, and who started the year ranked 113th.  Not only that, but Johansson never had played a five-set match. Yet there he was, smacking serves at 141 mph, outslugging Roddick from the baseline, and ending the match by breaking the game's best server.
