Washington's most important tennis event, the Legg Mason Classic, got under way this week. Most of the major names in men's tennis are in Beijing this month, but ninth-ranked Andy Roddick, skipping the Olympics to be ready for the U.S. Open, decided to come back to the FitzGerald Tennis Center in Rock Creek Park to defend his title. Roddick is favored to win a second consecutive Legg Mason title, but he was happy to survive the first round, when all but three of the eight seeded players were upset. That included the former world no. 1 player Marat Safin, whom some put in the running to challenge Roddick. Safin resigned his first match after pulling a muscle in his neck.
