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....

So, Brooklyn Decker posted a video on Instagram of her husband, Andy Roddick, doing his best Jay-Z impersonation... and the reactions were mixed. I mean, it's kind of hard to watch right? And yet you want to watch it again and again...
Some people just have so much confidence.
We knew they weren't the best of friends, but I don't think any of us imagined that Andy Roddick once had Novak Djokovic pushed up against a locker at the US Open! Sounds like things would have become more physical if Roddick hadn't realised Djokovic's trainer was the size of a truck. I just wish this was all caught on camera... it's probably about as violent as tennis gets!
Check out this HILARIOUS video of Andy Roddick posted by Sarah Burlingham and tweeted by Andy's wife, Brooklyn Decker.
It was posted with the caption, "This is how Andy and I prepare for an interview with Justin Timberlake. No really. Pro. Fessionals."
Retired life looks fun...
When you mix the snarky but hilarious Andy Roddick with the ultra suave Roger Federer you get a very entertaining interview!!!
Andy is a natural in front of the tv cameras, and the whole interview is great, but I thought the most intriguing part of the interview was when they talked candidly about their 2009 Wimbledon final. Andy mentioned how heartbreaking that loss was for him, but he also mentioned how appreciative he was that Fed was very reserved in the locker room after the trophy presentation.
But, the BEST part was when Andy called Fed a "selfish bastard" To see how Fed responds, press PLAY!
It was a big news week this week, with lots of tragedy mixed in with sporting victories. The Boston Marathon bombings and subsequent man hunt certainly dominated the news. Tennis players were just as horrified as the rest of us, and many shared their thoughts on Twitter. However, if we searched through all the tweets dedicated to Boston we would have a enough Tweets of the Week posts for a year! Here's a small selection.
All my Support to all affected in the #Boston attack. A tragedy that should not occur again.— Rafa Nadal (@RafaelNadal) April 16, 2013
If you want to know what it's like behind-the-scenes of the WTA, it ain't all fun and games folks.
