2004 Sep 18 - Rusedski defeated by Salzenstein

Greg Rusedski has lost to American Jeff Salzenstein 6-4 7-6(7) in the quarter-finals of the International Tennis Championships at Delray Beach, Florida.

Surprisingly, the British No.2 was outgunned by the big serving American who pounded 14 aces and saved a set point in the second set.

The 30-year-old American has been on the professional circuit since 1996 but this is the first time he has reached the semi-final of an ATP event.

After the match, a modest Jeff Salzenstein said:

"Against a player like Greg, it's going to come down to one or two points, and I got lucky."
