RODDICK, HENMAN UPSET IN PARIS

Top-seeded Andy Roddick (left) and defending champion Tim Henman were upset in the third round of the Paris Masters on Thursday. Roddick lost, 7-6 (2), 6-2, to qualifier Max Mirnyi, while Henman was beaten, 7-5, 6-1, by unseeded Mikhail Youzhny.

Roddick lost his composure in a second set riddled with errors and marked by a running feud with umpire Lars Graff. With Mirnyi leading, 3-1, Roddick questioned a call and then asked Graff: "Do you play golf?"

The chair umpire said, "No."

Roddick replied: "Good, because if you did, you should use your mulligan on that call."

Roddick said after that he was "more mad at myself" than at the official. He did praise Mirnyi's performance.

"Max played well. He always serves good and didn't miss many volleys," Roddick said.
