There will be peace on earth before the Fish puns stop.

I know one of the women in those pictures. Wonder if she has any info for me...

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.

Success On A Starry Night

Posted By Andyroddick.com Staff On 10th December 2006 @ 19:20 In Beyond The Court, Charity News, Front Page Stories | Comments Disabled

After walking down the red carpet and entering the Boca Raton Polo Club, the twinkling lights, the warm atmosphere, and the hundreds of people attended another successful and fun Andy Roddick Foundation Dinner Dance.

Once you checked in, you received a colorful smiley-face wristband as your admittance to the silent auction area and an evening program dawned with the man himself on the cover. After walking through the colorful shaffon-draped entrance, it was time to begin bidding. From a hand crafted, one of a kind doll to Andy’s signed 2006 Davis Cup outfit to a ride on a zamboni at a hockey game, there was something for everyone. After bidding on your favorite items, meeting and taking pictures with Andy, and winning the item you were watching from across the room all night, serendipity was in the air.

Andy came out to meet his fans, take pictures with them, and thank his guests for the support. Everyone then went to find their seats for dinner and the live auction. As you entered the room, your eyes were immediately struck by the citrus colored décor. Lemon yellow, lime green, and Sunkist orange dawned the room, floor to ceiling. Andy took to the microphone to introduce his celebrity friends Boyd Tinsley from the Dave Matthews Band and Venus and Serena Williams to his fans. His confidence on the court didn’t totally carry over into the spot light as Andy joked that he can play at the US Open but I get a bit nervous talking in front of all of you. Then his mother and the Foundation’s Chairwoman, Blanche Roddick, took to the spotlight and gave a powerful and touching opening that touched your heart, making you be happy to take out your wallets.

The live auction began and bidding to win great items such as a Super Bowl weekend package made those paddles and bids fly high. After a tasty meal, exclusive items with their new owners, and wearing out your dancing shoes, the evening came to an end but the festivities were still be to anticipated as tennis with Agassi is still to come.

Thank you to all of Andy’s fans, sponsors, and guests who came and donated for the hundreds of children who the Andy Roddick Foundation supports. This weekend wouldn’t be such a success without you! Now, the fun continues.

shaffon? dawned?

Was the author of this piece drunk? That has to be the worst crap I have ever seen come from that site, and that says a lot considering the consistency of the crap they produce. Wow.

Hometown Hero
Service Winner Andy Roddick

Friday, December 1, 2006
by Kevin Kaminski

Andy Roddick re-established himself as a force on the men’s professional tennis tour with his success on the hard courts this summer, including a win at the ATP Masters Series event in Cincinnati. His impact locally, meanwhile, remains as strong as ever thanks to the work of his eponymous foundation, which supports a variety of children’s programs in South Florida.

Those organizations once again will benefit from Roddick’s star-studded charity weekend, Dec. 8–10. The sixth annual affair features something new—an opening-night Texas Hold ’Em poker tournament at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood—in addition to a gala and tennis event at the Polo Club in Boca Raton (for more information, visit arfoundation.org).

Roddick, who maintains a residence in Boca as well as one in Austin, Texas, spoke with Boca Raton about the work of his charity and this year’s festivities:

You’ve said that a conversation with Andre Agassi (who will be at Roddick’s event) was the inspiration behind your foundation. Why did it have such an impact on you?

I have shared this story many times, but it still rings true. When I was 17, before I was even a ranked professional, I caught a ride back to Boca Raton on Andre’s jet and was scared to say a word [laughs]. He finally asked me if I had any questions for him. He didn’t know what he [was getting himself into]. After two hours of chatting, one particular answer stuck with me. I asked him what his biggest regret was. I expected him to talk about dropping down in the tennis rankings or something along those lines. He looked at me and said that he did not start his foundation early enough. I didn’t want that same regret. I just hope that I can make as much of a difference as Andre has.

How has the foundation impacted local organizations like Back-to-Basics Angel Foundation and Kids in Distress?

Working with [Back to Basics, which provides basic necessities for children in need], we were able to provide 3,700 uniforms for students. … Without charitable [funding], Kids in Distress could not develop the remarkable program that enables [it] to care for over 6,000 abused and forgotten children. Giving kids school uniforms- or food around the holidays sounds easy, but sometimes the practical things go [the longest] way.

What stands out about the first five years of the event?

I think back to our first year when we were ecstatic about raising $37,000. It is awesome to realize how far we have come. Last year, we raised more than $2.2 million. … The biggest thrill is hearing how what we have done has given a child a better chance at life. That is what this is all about.

A Texas Hold ’Em tournament? Are You a card shark?

I love to play poker, and I play it a lot. Unfortunately, for me, there is a big difference between playing a lot of poker and being a good poker player. ... My tennis friends [Mardy Fish, James Blake] play; it gives us something to do when we’re in foreign [countries].

There were actually two porn stars there. I guess it was a very eclectic crowd.

Andy Roddick & Mandy Moore: 'We're Cool'
By Jon Warech
Teen People
Dec 11, 2006 11:00AM EST

Andy Roddick hosted his first annual Charity Celebrity Poker Tournament at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., Friday night, and his ex, Mandy Moore, was on hand to lend star wattage.

"We're cool," the tennis hunk, 24, told PEOPLE of his relationship with Moore, 22, whom he dated for more than a year before they split in 2004. "We're doing fine now. She's a good girl, and it says a lot about her to come out tonight."

The pair chatted in the gifting suite before celeb guests such as Venus and Serena Williams, Nicky Hilton (who later met up with sister Paris at the South Beach nightclub Ink) and Backstreet Boy Howie Dorough hit the tables. Roddick and Moore have been friendly for a while: In July, they shared an intimate lunch at the poolside Backyard restaurant at L.A.'s W hotel.

Friday's event raised funds for the five-year-old Andy Roddick Foundation, which supports Kids in Distress, A Safe Haven for Newborns and other charities that help abused and at-risk children.

"We proposed the concept and everyone was real excited," Roddick said of the tournament. "We have superstars of the tennis world, the modeling world with the cast of (MTV's) 8th and Ocean, the actress world with Mandy. I'm humbled by everybody that came out tonight. It's pretty cool."

So have he and Moore rekindled their romance? Nope, he said: They're just friends.
