WASHINGTON (AP) - The ATP says no U.S. men will be ranked in the top 10 next week, the first time the country hasn’t been represented since the computer rankings began in 1973.

When the new rankings are issued Monday, the top American, Andy Roddick, will slide from No. 9 to no higher than No. 12.

Roddick lost in the third round of the Legg Mason Tennis Classic on Thursday, when the other three remaining Americans also were beaten _ John Isner, Mardy Fish and Ryan Sweeting.

That makes this the first time no U.S. men reached the quarterfinals at Washington’s tournament, which dates to 1969.
