Game Point is Busted Racquet's roundup of facts, figures and links from across the web.

Love -- Caroline Wozniacki lost her first match since falling from No. 1, blowing three match points in a 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 loss to Lucie Safarova at the Qatar Open.

Chris Skelton tweeted a fascinating stat after the loss: In between the 2010 and 2011 editions of Wimbledon, Wozniacki lost two total matches before the third round of a tournament. In the seven months since Wimbledon 2011, she has already lost six such matches. The knock on Caro was always that she didn't have the game for the full-field events. No one ever doubted her ability to win the lesser ones. Right now, she'd love to contend in a second-tier event.

15 -- Here's another stat: Wozniacki has a 20-10 (67 percent) record since she started dating Rory McIlroy. In the 11 months before she met him, her record was 74-12 (86 percent).

30 -- Andy Roddick was victorious in his return to the tennis court. Playing for the first time since pulling out of the Australian Open with a hamstring injury, the 29-year-old American held off 19-year-old Denis Kudla in three sets at the San Jose Open. The final score was 6-7, 7-6, 6-4.

40 -- It took one match for Roger Federer to advance to the quarterfinals in Rotterdam. The world No. 3 defeated Nicolas Mahut 6-4, 6-4 in the first round of the Dutch event and then moved into the quarters after Mikhail Youzhny withdrew from the tournament with a foot injury. Federer will face Jarko Nieminen in the quarters and could see either Tomas Berdych or Juan Martin Del Potro in Sunday's final.

Game -- The US Open Series has a new title sponsor. Emirates Airlines signed a seven-year deal with the USTA to sponsor the run of summer events in North America. The Wall Street Journal reports the deal is for more than $90 million and includes major promotions tied to the US Open.
