Video: Andy Roddick Gets Popped in the Groin

I guess retirement isn't all rainbows and fairies if you are Andy Roddick.  The retired tennis star was in Alabama for the Powershare series when his opponent, Mark Philippoussis, decided it would be good fun to aim the ball between Roddick's legs. Fortunately for us it was all caught on camera and fortunately for Roddick the ball bounced first!  Priorities....

Fernando Verdasco Strips for Details Magazine

Fernando Verdasco, who apparently has the nickname "Muscles from Madrid," went topless in the March issue of Details Magazine to show off his amazing physique and talk about how he keeps fit.   His biggest take-home message is to eat healthy (duh),

I consume a lot of carbs and protein: salad with fish, or pasta or rice with chicken or steak. In Spain, we eat a lot of beans and legumes, too. I don't pay attention to calories, though. I eat what I feel like—but only the healthy stuff.

He also says he doesn't drink,

I don't get distracted when I visit Vegas. I've tried beer and wine, but I've never enjoyed it, so I don't drink. When I party, I just have Coke, orange juice, or water. I'm kind of weird.

But he does occasionally like to indulge and eat a couple of In-N-Out and burgers, when in the states.  

To read the whole interview, click here.  Now, excuse me while I continue to giggle at the nickname "Muscles from Madrid."   That is soooo Fer.

Dmitry Tursunov Lays Into an Umpire Over Rafael Nadal!

Wow somebody has been bottling up his true feelings for too long! Dmitry Tursunov received a warning for taking too much time between points against Grigor Dimitrov at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament on Tuesday, and he used the opportunity to get up on his soapbox. 

“How much am I over?” Tursunov asked the umpire Cedric Mourier, “As much as Rafa or less?” The umpire informed Tursunov that he was a few seconds over the 25 second rule. “I think Rafa is eight seconds over and nobody ever gives him a warning... Rafa will pick his ass for 30 seconds and you guys will watch it. You’re not going to say a word.”

Ok, I see Tursunov's point. There is an inconsistency in when time violations are given and the top players do seem to get let off the hook a lot more. Rafael Nadal, of course, is famous for taking his sweet time between points. But the middle of the match is not really the time or place to bring up this issue!

Christian Harrison's Druggy Thoughts

 

Don't you just love brothers? Especially the kind that take a video of you talking smack while high on pre-surgery meds and then post it to over 47 thousand followers on Twitter? That's exactly what Ryan Harrison did to his younger brother Christian today, and the results are hilarious. Get better soon, Christian, and we can't wait to see you get your revenge!

Nike Welcomes Maria Sharapova to Sochi with a New Tennis Court

Maria Sharapova is currently in Russia to showcase the city Sochi for NBC, the home of the 2014 Winter Olympics. While there, she returned to one of the courts at the Evgeniy Kafelnikov Tennis Academy where she started her career; a court that Nike recently refurbished in her honor to offer inspiration to the local tennis community.  Pretty cool right?

What is even cooler is that there is a mural of Maria on the court as well as this inscription,

This is more than a line on a wall. It’s where a little girl hit her first thousand tennis balls. It’s daring to go further. It’s defying the doubters. It’s deciding what you want. Then doing something about it. This is not just a line on a wall. It’s where legends are made.

Maria said this about re-opening the court,
