Congrats to Brooklyn! I had a feeling she would get it seeing how she's been doing the swimsuit issue for the mag since 2006. She's paid her dues!

And I like that yellow bikini. She probably looks better in it than I'll ever will though.

Re: Like Sands Through the Hourglass, This is the Life of the Roddicks (Brooke's fanc

As I just said, I usually lurk here but I enjoy all your appreication and frustration.

I have to say though:
a) I think Ms Roddick looks terrible in that photo - what is with her hair color. Really poor color job.
b) My husband (we live in Austin) just noted he'd be totally fine if I looked like her (sigh..) but who wants their WIFE putting it out like that.
c) Like the first poster who commented on this yesterday, I'm wondering if their marriage will survive this. The ind of preoccupations, activities, commitment to maintaining "celebrity" profile etc involved don't seem to mesh very well with either Andy's line of work or his personality. I fear an Agassi and Shields path (hopefully without the crystal meth...)

Have you read or seen anything Andy has said about it? I really dont think he has a problem with it...

Re: Like Sands Through the Hourglass, This is the Life of the Roddicks (Brooke's fanc

I personally don't see what the big deal about her being on the cover is (but then again I don't get why a sports magazine has a bikini issue anyway! it must be an American thing ) but if she's happy with it (which she certainly seems to be!) then good for her.

As someone who really knows nothing about how it works/the covergirl gets chosen, I did have a feeling it would be Brooke now that she's married to a famous sports star, it just seemed obvious. but maybe that's just the cynic in me!

Re: Like Sands Through the Hourglass, This is the Life of the Roddicks (Brooke's fanc

No and he tweeted a cheerful thing about it yesterday. But I think going forward this take off of her career in this particular direction is going to pose some challenges n various levels. And one thing I worried about from the start with her (as we're big Austin Andy fans as I said) was that she's very young - got a lot of growing up to do. And that's not a criticism of her but just a fact. If we sampled swimsuit model types who get married at that age to see the average length of their marriages, we'd see a strong correlation with not very long lived, "starter marriage" patterns. We're hoping for the best...

It was pretty obvious or months that it'd be her just b/c of all the buzz, I agree... I don't quite get it either, but the SI swimsuit cover has catapulted a lot of models into clear supermodel status... tyra, heidi, etc got their big start on the SI cover... so, that's why she's so excited, her career has probably permanently changed forever.




And let's be real here people, Andy picked her out of the SI swimsuit issue a few years ago. To suggest he's not ok with her showing her stuff or that he'd be jealous of other guys looking at her or whatever is kind of absurd. he got into this knowing full well what she does for a living like I said, there's no guarantee a marriage is going to last forever or whatever, but I can't imagine their marriage ending because of a magazine cover.

Sorry, no way to make that not sound skeevy.
I think she said as much.

Slow tennis newsday if Brooklyn's on the front pages.

She'll be a guest on David Letterman tonight.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Andy did not see her in a magazine the 1st time, it was on her football show. So he saw and heard her talk before seeing her in a bikini. This story is all wrong. They both explained how it started on Mrbobbybones show recently.

I AM A BIG FAN OF ANDY

Re: Like Sands Through the Hourglass, This is the Life of the Roddicks (Brooke's fanc

As many people have said here, sometimes Brooke seems like the female version of Andy. They seem to be very compatible and similar in good ways. She's not jealous of his career taking him all over the world and he's not jealous of hers. So far it seems that they have done a very good job of managing their schedules so that they are never apart for too long and they regularly attend each other's functions. And when they are not out and about, they are perfectly content to stay home and have game nights with other couples (which they both post about on twitter). They cannot even be compared to Andre and Brooke on any level.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
