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.
Pippa Middleton, sister of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was spotted heading into the gym (to likely work on her world famous bum) sporting the vintage Andy Roddick Foundation shirt!
The shirts cost $30 dollars and come in either blue or grey. Here is a little more info about the shirts:
This vintage style T-Shirt features a super soft tri-blend fabric with a distressed new Andy Roddick Foundation Logo. You can wear the same shirt that Andy’s friends and family sported at the US Open for only $30. The shirt is available in Vintage Gray and Vintage Blue. All proceeds benefit the new Roddick Tennis and Learning Center.
They are selling fast (and now will likely sell faster now that Pippa has been seen wearing it), so if you want one, go preorder it now!

Life is hard for Andy Roddick. The former number one tennis player in the world has been reduced to spending the rest of his life lamenting what could have been as he retires at the ripe old age of 30. With only his fame, fortune and supermodel wife to console him, the road ahead will be paved with tribulation. After an illustrious career, Roddick threw in the towel after his three hour match against Juan Martin Del Potro in the 4th round of the US Open. When handed the microphone go say goodbye to his fans, the witty fan-favorite choked up, exclaiming:
