OSTRAVA, Czech Republic, Feb 9 (Reuters) - Czech President Vaclav Klaus's bodyguards are trained to dive in front of bullets to ensure his safety. But apparently that does not apply to tennis balls as well.

Klaus, sitting in the front row of the Czech Republic's Davis Cup tie against the United States, was on the receiving end of a serve from Andy Roddick, owner of the fastest serve in the game today.

Roddick's blast bounced up and hit Klaus, an avid tennis player himself, in the chest. The president was unhurt in the incident. Roddick played on unaware.

"I didn't notice that," Roddick said, smiling when told about the incident.



"But I said in warm-up that most of the time, there's a net behind the wall and I saw that this one (arena) didn't have one, so someone might be dodging some tennis balls today. But I promise you that it was nothing personal." Roddick, who holds the record for the fastest serve at 154 miles per hour (247.8 kmh) added insult to injury by going on to beat Czech Ivo Minar in the match.

correction...those bodyguards should be fired and shot for letting him get hit like that.

IF it was George Bush's people they would have blocked that ball and shot the serving player dead in return.

Well, Jimmy said they have been working on Roddick's movement. So perhaps he would have survived. :devil:

It happened again in the Blake match, but the 2nd time the Czech president was more alert and actually caught the ball. :)

Hey, but it's great that the Czech president makes time to watch a DC tie. Yeltsin did as well.

I bet Roddick would only hit a kick serve at Bush, so he misses his Republican buddy. Duck is used to being a target on clay, good to see a get strike in first.

:lol: But seriously, why would those bodyguards think it's a good idea for the president to sit right in the line of service fire?? With protection like that who needs enemies. :haha:

Roddick has only good serve, otherwise he shows nothing sophisticated specially. He resembles a wooden doll on the court.

Ha ha, I knew this was going to happen, because there were few other Czech politicians including the prime minister, all of them sitting in the front row.
