SAN JOSE, CALIF. (AP) - Andy Roddick’s return from injury lasted all of two matches, losing to Uzbekistan’s Denis Istomin 6-2, 6-4 in the quarterfinals of the SAP Open on Friday night.

Hobbled by a fresh right ankle sprain and a troublesome hamstring that forced his retirement from last month’s Australian Open, Roddick lost every point in his first service game and never regained his rhythm. He slammed one racket, broke another, sailed a ball into the stands in frustration, argued with the chair umpire and even shouted at his own box.

Earlier Friday, 19-year-old American Ryan Harrison moved closer to his first ATP Tour singles title with a 6-1, 6-4 victory over Bulgaria’s Dimitar Kutrovsky. Harrison will face defending tournament champion Milos Raonic in the semifinals Saturday. Raonic defeated Kevin Anderson 7-5, 7-6 (3).
