London, Jun 13: Seventh seeded Andy Roddick was ousted from the grass court tournament at Queen's Club after losing in the second round to Edouard Roger-Vasselin of France 6-4, 4-6, 7-5 on Wednesday.

Fourth seeded Gilles Simon of France also lost on Wednesday to Simone Bolelli of Italy, 4-6, 6-3, 7-6.

Sixth seeded Marin Cilic of Croatia advanced with an easy 6-2, 6-1 win over Matthew Ebden of Australia.
