LONDON (AP) - No American player is in the top 10 for the first time since the men’s tennis computer rankings began in 1973.

Andy Roddick dropped from No. 9 to No. 11 in the ATP rankings issued Monday.

Roddick lost in the third round last week at the Legg Mason Tennis Classic in Washington.

U.S. men have gone 27 consecutive Grand Slam tournaments without a title. Roddick was the last American to win a major title at the 2003 U.S. Open.

Still ranked No. 1 is French Open and Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal. The Spaniard has a lead of nearly 4,000 points over Novak Djokovic.

Roger Federer remains at No. 3, followed by Andy Murray and Robin Soderling.
