US men's tennis number one Andy Roddick said Saturday he was seething about a disallowed winner in the United States' World Cup football match with Slovenia.

"I understand the rules of football so well that apparently when two Slovenian guys mug an American guy the American guy gets called for a foul. That's how well I understand the rules," Roddick said.

Wisely, Roddick avoided watching England's dismal goalless draw with Algeria, the other game in the United States' group.

"I did not watch the England game. I decided to take advantage of no traffic and go into the city and have some dinner. You'd be amazed how quickly you can get down there when an England game is on."
