The Dating Game

I am dedicating this particular page to Andy's Love Life. It seems that the interest in who he's dating/seeing/doing will never wane and so I will use this page to post and update any gossip items that I come across about his dating and mating habits.

A lot of people seem to have suddenly discovered Brooklyn and are blogging about her and Andy. (related article: Andy Roddick is all about Brooklyn...Decker).

Here's an interview with Brooklyn in Lucire magazine.

Finally, A Broddick Sighting

The celebrity gossip blog has published several nice photos of Andy and Brooklyn holding hands while walking around New York City's Union Square. They make a nice looking couple. My only complaint is that ripped jeans have not been in vogue since the early 90s so I'm hoping Brooklyn's fashion sense will rub off on Andy and those awful jeans will disappear from his wardrobe.

Brooklyn Video
I found this video profile of Brooklyn where she talks about herself, how she likes living in New York City, and her favorite band is the same as Andy's: The Dave Matthews Band.

Why was Andy in New York Anyway?
The NYPost says:
WE HEAR: That after he helped the US win the Davis Cup for the first time in 12 years, Andy Roddick flew to New York for a routine checkup of his fast feet with Dr. Josh Dines and Dr. Rock Positano of the Hospital for Special Surgery.

A lot of fans seem to have already formed an opinion about Ms. Decker. Here's mine: there are only two things that concern me, One. Does she make him happy? Going by just the few photos I have seen of them together the answer appears to be yes. So far so good. Two. Does she inspire him? In other words, will Decker be one of those suck-the-life-energy-out-of-him type of parasitic trophy girlfriends or will she inspire him to be the best that he can be, both as an athlete and as a human being? Judging by his recent results on the court, and his relaxed attitude and behavior, I am inclined to believe that she has had a positive influence on him. Anything else about Andy's girlfriends I could not care less about. I don't care what she looks like, how old she is, if she's a model or a former frumpy "Survivor" contestant, or whether their relationship will "last", none of these things matter to me as a fan of Andy Roddick. I only want to see him happy and to succeed in his dreams. Should Andy win another slam on her watch, I will be the first to demand that Brooklyn Decker be cloned.

More on Andy and Brooklyn Decker

From the Charlotte Observer. (factoid: Brooklyn is a native of Charlotte):
Could score be love-love?

Could Andy Roddick be nursing his foot injury in the company of rumored girlfriend Brooklyn Decker?

The pair have reportedly been spotted around Matthews, where Decker grew up.

Sources tell me the couple were spotted running at Colonel Francis Beatty Park and have been seen working out together at the Siskey/Hemby YMCA.

A person who answered the phone at the YMCA Monday night would not confirm the sightings.

However, the timing sounds right for them. Sports Illustrated -- for which Decker has modeled -- typically wraps shooting of its top-secret swimsuit issue in September and Roddick has been resting before his "Champions for Charity" event in Austin this week.

The couple were first spotted together in August during the U.S. Open.

More photos and videos of Brooklyn can be found here.

Andy Roddick falls for Sports Illustrated swimsuit model

From the New York Daily News:
Tennis star Andy Roddick was reportedly seen enjoying dinner in the company of American fashion model Brooklyn Decker at Nobu on Wednesday.

Roddick's coach and eight-time Grand Slam winner Jimmy Connors, Dave Matthews Band electric violinist Boyd Tinsley and Plum media's Tom Scott were also at the eclectic table.

An onlooker has revealed that Roddick had completely devoted his concentration to Brooklyn, a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model.

"Andy may be playing in Queens, but at Nobu he seemed to have his mind on Brooklyn," the New York Daily News quoted a source as saying.

The newspaper report says that Roddick is known for setting tongues wagging every year during the US Open, as people wait to see who will be on his arm.

From The Scotsman:
Love-all in the court of A-Rod

It was a telling moment. A glimpse of Andy Roddick the man, rather than the tennis player. Ashley Harkleroad, the childhood sweetheart of the big-hitting American, was asked why they had split. "He couldn't keep it in his pants," was the brutally succinct reply.

A player for whom the 'love-all' tennis pun was invented, Roddick has since been linked with a string of beauties.

A lads' lad, he likes sports, poker and women.

Roddick is an amalgam of supremely aggressive tennis player, American jock, joker, philanthropist and flirt. He exploded onto the tennis scene as a precociously powerful and aggressive 18-year-old. His athletic good looks got him pigeonholed as 'the male Kournikova', an unfair comparison considering his undoubted prowess on the tennis court.

In an image-obsessed America, he had the looks to make sponsors, adoring females and gay men sit up and take more interest in the sport. Appearances on MTV and in magazines were commonplace in those early days. He halted the traffic in Times Square in 2003 as he appeared on the television show TRL and fans spilled over onto the street as he posed for photos outside the studios.

Roddick, who is rarely seen on court without a baseball cap pulled tight down on his head, has an articulacy and intelligence that has escaped many professional sportsmen, but it his love life that has fascinated the celebrity magazines and internet chatrooms.

He appeared settled during his lengthy relationship with the beautiful actress and singer, Mandy Moore. A glamorous couple, they traversed the showbiz-sport divide, and the media loved them. But his souring success and her career commitments made their diaries harder to synchronise, and it is suggested Roddick's eye again began to rove. In 2005, a year after the pair split, Moore penned an album of songs that she claimed chronicled her life over the previous 18 months. "It's a lot to do with love and heartbreak," she said. When asked if Roddick would therefore be entitled to a share of the royalties, she declared that "if you listen to the songs you will realise that he is owed nothing".

One of the songs on Wild Hope, 'Nothing That You Are', includes a line about a paramour she hopes will "burn in hell". Despite the apparent animosity, the pair have recently been seen enjoying intimate dinners.

There was no doubting that Moore has a place in Roddick's heart but what is less certain is whether he is happy to restrict that number to one.

When together, the pair talked of their normal life of movies, popcorn and quiet nights in playing board games or chilling. Perhaps the party animal in him was feeling too caged because when he did finally break from that union, it was into the arms of the more reckless and feckless 'it girl', Paris Hilton. If Moore was an American sweetheart who had mainstream movie appearances on her CV, Hilton was the spoilt bitch who had 'starred' in a film of her own.

Roddick, as he has been since the split with Moore, has remained coy on their relationship, but when Hilton's phone was stolen, he was one of those 'outed' as being listed among her list of contacts. By then, the lad who had been born in Omaha, Nebraska, to a businessman father Jerry and schoolteacher mother Blanche, had won the US Open and much was expected.

That was at the end of 2003. He was hailed as the new face of US tennis as Jim Courier, Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi prepared for retirement. It was a huge burden to place on a youngster's shoulders, and being catapulted into the major league of sporting stars in his homeland appeared to undermine his potential.

Roddick holds the record for the fastest serve recorded in professional tennis (155mph) and he was proving he could work his way through relationships almost as quickly. The model and star of US reality show 8th & Ocean, Sabrina Aldridge, was linked to him, as was another model, Lauren Bedford, but it was when he was spotted attending events with Maria Sharapova that the gossip writers and paparazzi really started to take notice.

But Roddick is showing no signs of wanting to settle down. At tournaments, he is regularly seen out on town basking in the glow of gathering groupies.

While some former lovers may not be so keen to offer character references, the fact that Moore was still willing to be a guest at his first annual Celebrity Poker Tournament suggests that if he was the subject of her rage, she no longer wishes him a firey aftermath.

Those who have met Roddick know he can be charming and intelligent company, something he sometimes carries onto the court.

He is often heard laughing and interacting with the crowd. The press have not escaped his practical joking: Roddick spent one Wimbledon winding a up journalist after she used a post-match press conference to ask him about the relevance of an elastic band round his wrist. He instantly told her it had been a lucky charm and kept the joke alive match after match before eventually coming clean and admitting he had taken it off a racquet and hadn't even realised it he was wearing it at that original press conference.

Roddick could certainly do with a good luck charm when he steps on court to play his nemesis - and arguably the finest tennis player to have picked up a racket - Roger Federer.

Roddick has appeared many times on television talk shows, hosted Saturday Night Live and was named "Sexiest Athlete" by People magazine in 2003. But there is also substance behind the man called "A-Rod" or "Kid Roddick".

In 2001 he set up the Andy Roddick Foundation to benefit aid organisations dealing with children who have been abused, abandoned and neglected.

"At the time I started it I was practically a child myself. A big part of me still is," he said recently. "And selfishly, I loved the idea. The gala nights are about glitz and raising the money but I love going somewhere three months later and seeing a child we have helped, using a computer we got them or clothing or whatever. I like that feeling. Then in a small way I feel like I am able to change the course of someone's life. We have been able to provide opportunities in the last six years and that's the real reward." That was recognised in when he was given the Arthur Ashe Humanitarian Award in 2005.

Roddick has reaped the celebrity and financial rewards of life on the tennis circuit. But he would love to add another trophy to his collection, rather than just another trophy girlfriend. The grass courts of Wimbledon should suit his explosive serve-dominated game and he might already have been a champion had it not been for the majestic Federer.

Raised in Florida, Andy Roddick was a star basketball player at Boca Raton Preparatory School before concentrating on tennis.

• Roddick was born into a sporting family: his brother John was an All-American tennis player at the University of Georgia, while oldest sibling Lawrence excelled in springboard diving.

• In 2002, Roddick guest-starred on the television show Sabrina, The Teenage Witch as himself. In the episode, Sabrina, above, summoned him so he could give her tennis lessons. Roddick has also been a guest host on cult comedy series Saturday Night Live.

• He was hailed a hero in 2004 after helping to rescue guests from a blazing hotel. Roddick was staying at the Grand Hotel Parco dei Principi in Rome while playing in the Italian Open when a blaze broke out. Roddick helped several tourists climb from their balconies to safety as the fire, which killed three and injured five others, ripped through the hotel.

Gossip: The Tennis A-List

This is an e-mail that's been making the rounds for ages. It's written in much the same fashion as the legendary celebrity gossip list, The A-List. It has been compiled from information gathered over the last half decade by a band of women - ATP groupies - who have made it there business to seduce, suck and fuck the brains out of the world's most famous tennis players.

WARNING: This is an uncensored gossip list that describes the sexual peccadillos of many tennis players. If you are offended by coarse language that objectifies people, don't read further. Remember: it's only gossip. It provides nothing but an entertaining, fantasy read which is not to be taken seriously.

I mean, I've read this list over dozens of times and I still can't stop laughing. It's just so....dirty. LOL. I feel bad for one guy who might come across this list. Imagine him and his big ego wondering what his legions of minions are saying about him, and after reading through some rather titilating descriptions of the other guys he then comes to his entry and it says only "Dud lay." ROTFL! How can you not laugh at that?

I like this nasty list so much I think I'll update it whenever new dirt comes in. *evil smile* So, Attention athletic supporters, groupies, rentboys, and other assorted whores: Please e-mail me your dirty tennis laundry so that I can keep this list updated. Thank you.

Agassi, Andre – Neurotic. Has never gotten into groupies because he finds them dirty. Found one girl who said she fucked him in the early nineties and he used two rubbers. Average lay with a really small dick (one locker room attendant reports they could barely see it for all the hair). Rarely showers at tournaments anymore. Moody. Some reports of his friendliness, others that his on court ‘classiness’ is all an act.

Ancic, Mario – Whore. Probably been through the most groupies of any guy on tour. Average cock (about 6 inch), but makes the most of it. Not afraid to lick cunt. Will go bareback.

Blake, James – One of the most beautiful men on tour has a suprisingly small dick (about 5 inch erect) and is nothing to write home about in the sack.

Clement, Arnaud – Petite Frenchman packs a big dick at 7 inches and knows how to use it. Always uses condoms.

Corretja, Alex – Mr Nice Guy, surprisingly wild in bed. Loves to give anal and into threesomes, including with fellow Spaniards. One groupie reports being the meat in a Corretja-Moya Sandwich. Well hung at 7 inches and “the thickest I’ve seen”. Likes to go bareback.

Coria, Guillermo – Prickly little customer who has few friends on tour. Was kicked out of house by his wife Carla after he admitted to several affairs; wife has since taken him back. Likes to keep himself hairless (including downstairs). Small dick.

Dent, Taylor – Loud mouth. Average endowment and ability.

Enqvist, Thomas – Slut. Average cock, average lay.

Federer, Roger – Super nice guy on an off the court, though can appear aloof at times. Super committed to girlfriend, Miroslava. Would be a huge scalp for any groupie, but seems groupie proof. Word from the locker room; small (even shriveled by some reports), uncut dick, unmaintained bush. A shame.

Ferrer, David – Dud lay.

Ferrero, Juan Carlos – Horny as hell with a taste for groupies. Nice uncut 7 inch dick (though not very thick) and a real latino lover with heaps of stamina. Long term girlfriend Patricia has to keep him on a tight leash to keep him from straying. Otherwise quite a nice guy. Practices safe sex.

Gasquet, Richard – Nadal’s contemporary, and one groupie who has had the company of both insists that the Frenchman has a distinct edge in the sack. Obsessed with blowjobs.

Gaudio, Gaston – Slut. Mild mannered but horny as hell. Very well hung, about 8 inch, uncut and fat. Excellent in the sack. Loves doing it doggie style. Will go bareback, but happy to wear a rubber if you ask.

Ginepri, Robby – Minnie Driver’s former squeeze, whose average endowment hasn’t stopped him making his way trough a fair share of ladies. Only an average lay and fairly unadventurous.

Gonzalez, Fernando – A good solid fuck.

Grosjean, Sebastien – Happily married with children. Buzz from the locker room says that his wife is no size queen – small cock.

Haas, Tommy – Horndog. Pretty boy. Arrogant at times. Uses his 6 inches to advantage but can be selfish. Practices safe sex.

Henman, Tim – Nice guy, if moody at times. Small dick, but happily married so no worry to us.

Hewitt, Lleyton – Massively endowed. Long, thick and cut. A 6-7 inch flaccid cock grows to 9-10 inch when hard. His size is well-known to other pros, one telling a groupie that “Lleyton is easily the biggest on tour”. Despite being a complete prick on court, generally a nice guy off it, and even a little shy. Moved from one high profile romance to the next and cant find a groupie who has slept with him. Pity.

Hrbaty, Dominik – Suprisingly good in bed. No Mr Big but gives everything he’s got.

Johansson, Joachim – One of the biggest cocks on tour at 8 inches.. Likes it hard and fast but can struggle with stamina. Been banging Lleyton Hewitt’s little sister and not very promiscuous.

Johansson, Thomas – Well hung (bout 7 inch hard), straight talking Swede. Conventional, but gets the job done. Very faithful to his long term partner.

Kiefer, Nicolas – Hewitt’s rival as the biggest man on tour. Estimated at a whopping 9 inch erect. An exhibitionist who was once picked up urinating in public after a night out. Horndog. Likes it rough and while he is good at what he does is something of a one trick pony. Won’t give head and insists that his conquests swallow his cum.

Lapentti, Nicolas – Fat 8 inch wad, but a dud lay who thinks his cock will do it all for him. Likes it bareback.

Malisse, Xavier – Jen Capriati’s ex-lover is competent in the sack. Likes to be ridden on top. Average cock.

Moya, Carlos – Whore. Poorly hung (wouldn’t get beyond 5 inches erect) but an excellent fuck by all accounts. Proving that size doesn’t matter. Will go bareback if you let him.

Nadal, Rafael – Generally pleasant, but has an arrogant streak. Using his muscular physique and new found fame to add as many notches as possible to his belt (and what hot blooded 19yo wouldn’t?). Only averagely endowed (around 6 inch) and despite his stamina on court has a bad habit of coming too quickly off it. Will ask to go bareback.

Philippoussis, Mark – Total Slut. Any hole will do. Average 6 inch cock and has admitted to being envious of compatriot Hewitt’s endowment. He is good in the sack though; surprisingly unselfish.

Rafter, Patrick – Surprisingly a dud. Less than a 5 inch dick and has few moves. Premature ejaculator. Obsessive condom user.

Robredo, Tommy – Boringly conventional in the sack. Only an average dick.

Roddick, Andy – Despite his horndog aura, is quite picky about his women and doesn’t buy big into groupies. Those who have had the experience have said that although he is only modestly endowed (between 5-6 inch hard) is explosive in the sack with stamina to burn. One groupie said he gave it to her four times in one night. Can be a little selfish. Loves getting head, but very reluctant to give it. Uses a condom everytime. Refers to uncircumcised dicks as "Turtle dicks".

Safin, Marat – Horndog. Will fuck anything in a skirt, including groupies. While his dick is above average (about 7 inch hard), it’s his willingness to try anything that makes him a beast in bed. Loves giving it to a girl up the back passage and gives great head. One groupie reports having a threesome with Safin and another Russian sports star. Likes to give facials after receiving blow jobs. Endless stamina. Suprisingly vigilant in practicing safe sex.

Spadea, Vincent – Sleazy slut who uses his pro status to lure chicks completely out of his league (and is often rejected). Adequately endowed (6 inches) and ok in the sack.

Youzhny, Mikhail – A B-grade Safin. 7 inch cock. Skirt Chaser. Wild in the sack.

Who's that girl?

Word on the street is that Andy has been seeing somebody from back home for several weeks now. Not surprisingly, it's been a very hush-hush relationship and personally I am glad for it because I can't stand it when I'm watching a Roddick tennis match and just as he's about to make a fantastic get, the horny cameramen keep cutting away to his girlfriend watching in the stands.

No name on the mystery girl but she is apparently 18 years old (not confirmed) and attends/attended the high school where Roddick trains. This photo of her is taken from Tennis Photo Library, copyright Ron C. Angle. She is listed in TPL only as "Andy Roddick's girlfriend." The only reason I would believe this source is because that the photo was taken by Andy's semi-official photographer, Ron Angle; spending so much time around Roddick I'm sure that Mr. Angle would know what Andy's girlfriend looks like, and the omission of her name could be intentional.

Then again, the photo itself could just be a ruse.

Also curious is the fact that now censors/moves/closes/deletes any threads that have anything to do with Andy's dating or girlfriends. Andy clearly wants to keep a very tight lid on his relationships, and I don't blame him, but deleting threads about it won't make people stop talking or wondering about it.

Mandy Watch

The lovely Mandy Moore graces the cover of the May issue of Cosmopolitan and once again she is still answering questions about her break-up with Andy:
Is it true some of the songs you're writing are inspired by your split with Andy Roddick?
Some of the songs that were first created were about that, but they won't end up on the record. I was bummed out, and it was really therapeutic to write it all down and get it all out. No one has to hear that stuff but me one day, if I want to.

What did you learn from that relationship?
Maybe to not talk about it. When you're happy, you want to spread the word that "I'm in love." But when it doesn't end up working out, it's such a bummer. Having people [I didn't know] ask, "What happened?" was so personal. I wish I had never said anything because then maybe it wouldn't have been so awful for me when it didn't work out.

Are you and Andy still friends?
We talk occasionally. I think it's healthy to be friendly with people who you shared a special part of your life with. I'm still good friends with Wilmer [Valderrama], who was my first boyfriend. I adore Wilmer. He's a great guy.

It's Official: Roddick and Sharapova Still Not Dating

Tennis star Andy Roddick plays love game
It was a love match in the making at the Don't Tell My Booker kickoff party at Mansion, thrown by Las Vegas clubs Jet and Light Wednesday night. Tennis golden boy Andy Roddick lived it up in the VIP section with fellow pro James Blake, but made a special trip back to Mansion's crowded entrance to pull in a special someone -- 8th and Ocean's ''breakout'' star, Sabrina. Once inside, the two were the epitome of a new crush, circling each other, whispering to their friends, and then eventually flirting. The ritual went on until Sabrina's booker-chaperon looked at her watch and escorted the starry-eyed model home. Roddick was seen flirting with models at the official NASDAQ-100 kickoff earlier that night. According to a spy, "Maria Sharapova came but was very much on the DL -- if she is seeing Andy, you couldn't tell.''

Hark! A Rumor That's Actually Worse than Roddickpova!

Someone posted this on a tennis board but when I tried to search for the actual article on Tennis Life magazine's website, I came up empty. Take it at it's entertainment value only.

From (allegedly) Tennis Life magazine:
Now that she has got the day job sorted for the forseeable future, Martina HIngis is working on her hobbies-and that means boys. In her pomp, La Hingis was seen on the arm of many a young hopeful chap but, alas, every player she dated was never heard of again.

From the up-and-comers such as Ivo Heuberger and Julian Alonso to the established champions like Magnus Norman (who was pushing for the World No. 1 ranking in the summer of 2000 as he followed Hingis around like a puppy), Hingis has had her wicked way with them and left them on the scrap heap. Anyone heard of Messrs Heuberger, Alonso or Norman of late? No, thought not.

Now the Swiss Miss has her eyes on Andy Roddick. The two were spotted gazing longingly, if secretively, at each other during Elton John's Smash Hits Aids fundraiser in Hershey, Pennsylvania, back in November. The gig raised $850,000 for the cause, even if Hingis could not get a win on the board, She was beaten by Samantha Stosur.

Still, Roddick's newfound love interest could explain his current lack of form. And if he doesn't get anywehere with Hingis, he could always ask her friend out for a date. Hingis teamed up with her old sparring partner, Anna Kournikova, for the doubles, only to lose to Stosur and Lisa Raymond.

TRUE LOVE AT LAST. Look into his eyes, Martina! You cannot deny your love for the A-Rod. The only thing that's separating you two from consummating your secret love affair are the two middle-age gay people standing between you!

Mandy Moore to Marry Zack Braff?

From the Post-Chronicle:
Zach Braff and singer/actress Mandy Moore are reportedly heading for a wedding after the "Scrubs" star was said to have quietly asked her to marry him late last month, according to a published report.

The couple are staying tight lipped about their plans, but Braff, 30, supposedly popped the question and presented Moore -- his girlfriend for the past year and a half -- with a $450,000, 4-carat princess-cut diamond-and-platinum Neil Lane engagement ring.

Moore's past boyfriends have included tennis ace ANDY RODDICK and actor WILMER VALDERRAMA.

Insiders tells America's In Touch magazine that the wedding is being scheduled for next April (07), when both stars celebrate their birthdays.

Mandy Moore was on the cover of the February issue of Glamour magazine. Here's part of her interview where she talks about her breakup with Roddick:

Glamour: A lot of your boyfriends have been older too. Aren't there any eligible 21-year-old guys in Hollywood?

MANDY MOORE: Actually my ex-boyfriend [Roddick] was only a year or two older than me, but generally, I'm just not attracted to guys my own age. Maybe it's because girls mature faster than guys. I don't think I could date someone that young again. I've found a perfect match now, in terms of the age thing.

Glamour: Your mom introduced you to your last boyfriend. Would you let her set you up again?

MANDY MOORE: No! (laughs) She didn't really set us up. I was working on a movie in Toronto, and my mom was going to a tennis tournament there. I said, "Hey, if you happen to meet that guy Andy Roddick, invite him to the set." Lo and behold, she ended up meeting him, and it turned out he had a crush on me too. He came to the set that night, and of course I was shooting a scene in an outfit I hated. I thought I could book it back to my trailer and change, but when I ran into my dressing room, he was already sitting there!

Glamour: Your eventual breakup was covered everywhere. It must be incredibly difficult to go through that so publicly.

MANDY MOORE: It was the worst thing ever. I was in New York shooting a movie alongside Susan Sarandon and Kate Winslet. It should have been the most exciting time of my life, but I was just so depressed, and nobody could take away that awful feeling in the pit of my stomach. Now I'm happy I went through it because as a result, I have an amazing record of songs about love and relationsh ips. Healing from a broken heart opened me up to all kinds of new ideas.

Justin Gimelstob to the rumor rescue

Add Mr. Gimelstob to the growing list of people perplexed over the Roddick-Sharapova dating rumors:
The much hyped Roddick/Maria Sharapova love match isn't what the tennis world is craving it to be. They are not together. Sorry, guys. While it makes a great story and gives the gossip magazines something to occupy their pages, they are both in Australia to win a tennis tournament, not engross themselves in some dramatic love affair.

Each, at some point, has reached the pinnacle of his or her sport, with Roddick having won a Grand Slam tennis title at the U.S. Open and Sharapova winning one at Wimbledon. Recently, the two have been reported as romantically linked. Oddly, however, their romance seems to have flourished away from the tennis courts, in a poker room.

As the Australian Open is currently taking place in Melbourne at the same time as the Aussie Millions poker tournament, Roddick and Sharapova have been seen keeping an eye on each other as well as on each other's cards at the local Crown Casino. With the couple frequenting the casino's poker room to play a few hands of their own, one wonders if they can maintain the mental focus needed to play in the Grand Slam event.

With the Australian Open still in its initial rounds, only time will tell whether Roddick and Sharapova can mentally tear themselves from pontificating about poker, and each other, to emerge victorious on the the courts. One thing's for sure though, a mixed-doubles teaming of this king and queen of tennis makes for an exceptionally good-looking pair.

The Herald Sun reports "Sharapova and Roddick love match?":
Maria Sharapova and Andy Roddick could have more in common than just tennis.

The glamorous Russian spent two hours watching Roddick play poker at Crown casino on Wednesday night, before they left together, sources said.

Reports the two were a couple first surfaced at the US Open last year, when he turned up unexpectedly to the launch of her fragrance.

Sharapova, 18, was at Crown not to play poker, but to keenly watch Roddick, 23, who knows his way around a poker table.

Roddick has had high-profile girlfriends in the past, including Hollywood actor and singer Mandy Moore.

Sharapova has been linked with Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine, and always refuses to comment on her personal life.

At Crown yesterday Roddick was back on the poker tables, taking part in the Australian Poker Charity Cup.

He joined footballers such as Nathan Buckley, Peter Everitt, Anthony Rocca and Dermott Brereton in the tournament.

Sipping on a cafe latte, the tennis champ did well from the start.

Finishing a respectable third, Roddick finally fell to Lillian Frank's husband Richard after three hours of play.

Mr Frank chose the Royal Children's Hospital as the recipient of the $5000 winnings.

At 18, as well as becoming a Wimbledon champion, Sharapova has matured into a savvy businesswoman but tennis and health remain her top priority.

Her 2005 year was hampered by injury and at one stage Australian Open organisers were doubtful she would come.

And yet more gossip about Andy and Maria from the UK's Daily Mail and also Fox Sports, "Match point for Maria and The Rocket?":
It is news that will break the hearts of male and female tennis fans everywhere.

For Russian sex symbol and model Maria Sharapova, conqueror of Wimbledon and the entire British male population, is being romantical ly linked with American star Andy Roddick, once voted one of the planet's most desirable men.

Rumours are rife that romance is in the air at the Australian Open in Melbourne after the pair have been sighted spending a great deal of time together.

Glamorous Sharapova, 18, spent two hours watching Roddick playing poker in the city's Crown Casino this week. The pair left together fuelling speculatio n that their friendship has become extremely close.

"They are not the types to go in for public displays of affection, but they appeared to be an item" said one observer. Four months ago, 23-year-old Roddick - Wibledon runner up to world No 1 Roger Federer for the past two years - unexpected ly turned up when Sharapova launched her own brand of perfume at the US Open in New York.

"There has been a lot of speculatio n over the strength of the frienship between Maria and Andy ever since," said BBC pundit John Lloyd.

Sharapova, who famously called her mother on her mobile phone from the Centre Court after winning the Wimbledon crown 2004 is recognised as the world's most glamourous sportswoman.

Before Christmas, she was guest of Sir Richard Branson at his luxurious home on the Caribbean island of Necker.

"Richard invited me for a week," she revealed last week as she prepared for her first-round match against Germany's Sandra Kloesel tomorrow. "It was like having your own island to yourself. It was fun."

Sharapova is estimated to earn ₤10.5 million a year from sponsorshi p and endorsemen t deals - light years away from her lowly upbringing in Siberia.

Roddick - dubbed The Rocket because of his bullet-like serve, clocked at up to 152mph - has previously dated Hollywood actress Mandy Moore. Even TV presenter Anne Robinson flirted outrageous ly with him on a Wimbledon edition of The Weakest Link.

He has not won a major championship since he captured the US Open in September 2003 but is second favourite for the Australian Open, where he plays Swiss qualifier Michael Lammer tomorrow night (who he won against) giving Sharapova the opportunit y to be courtside.

Last night she did nothing to dampen speculatio n about their relationsh ip, saying "I'm sorry, but I don't comment on my personal life."

More gossip still hot on Maria and Andy, from Fox Sports, January 17, 2006:
Maria Sharapova left the IMG player party at Breezes in Crown early on Sunday night, about 7.30pm, so just where did she go?

Sources said Sharapova once again ducked off to watch Andy Roddick play poker in one of the casino's exclusive gambling rooms on the 29th floor.

Sharapova also saw him play cards on Saturday and Wednesday nights, more evidence that the couple are more than just friends.

As for the No.3-ranked Roddick, he obviously has a thing for poker as well as Sharapova.

He was still at Crown at 10.30pm on Sunday and playing hard.

Gossip! Gossip! We've got gossip!

Well, we don't got the gossip, but we found it. Somebody over at LiveJournal had the chance to party with the US Davis Cup team in Belgium. So what does she think of Marat Safin's best buddy? "He's an alright guy. A little too cocky for me but nice enough." Here's her scintillating account of the whole sordid affair including photos.

From ESPN's Page 3:
Sharapova, Roddick play doubles

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- They would form one unbeatable doubles team, not to mention the type of photo-ready uber-couple that would drive the paparazzi into convulsions.

Andy Roddick and Maria Sharapova, the crown prince and current "It Girl" of the tennis world, formed an inseparable tandem the night before the 13th annual ESPY Awards.

As Sharapova arrived on the red carpet for one of the pre-event parties Tuesday night at the Playboy Mansion, the statuesque Russian was asked to take a few photos with Roddick.

"Are you wearing heels?" Roddick blared from across the carpet. "I'm not taking a photo with you if you're taller than me."

Vaulting on his tiptoes, Roddick made his way over to snap a few shots with the 18-year-old superstar. The two spent much of the evening together, chatting each other up and watching the bouts for ESPN2's "Tuesday Night Fights." Roddick displayed plenty of enthusiasm and grew very animated when big blows were landed.

After the party, the two retired to the Tropicana Bar at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel and were still lounging together poolside into the wee hours of the morning.

A blooming love match or just two champions from the same sport bonding? Don't ask us. This is Page 3, not The Star.

Other scenes from the night at Hugh Hefner's pad:
- Donovon McNabb took time away from eating to quickly introduce himself to Sharapova, who, along with Roddick, might have been the most popular athletes in the house.

- Amare Stoudemire spotted Roddick across the bar by the pool and yelled "Yo, Roddick!" Roddick smiled and gestured back his way.

Masha! Masha! Masha!

First up on his To Do list is Maria Sharapova, of which rumors of their secret dating is heating up again, thanks in part to the Australian press who are doing their job of trying to drum up interest in the Australian Open by writing gossip items about two hot players.

Mandy! Mandy! Mandy!

Up next is B-rated singer/actress Mandy Moore. The last I heard, she was supposedly going to write a song about her breakup with Andy. This was back in September of 2005 as reported by reports that Mandy Moore is set to sing about her split from tennis ace Andy Roddick on her forthcoming album. "I've co-written the whole thing and I spent the last year writing. I think it's gonna surprise people," Moore said. "It's a very sophisticated, cool, singer-songwriter-y like organic pop record... It's sort of just chronicling what's happened in my life over the last year or so. A lot to do with love and heartbreak and stuff. But it's my first kind of venture into like sitting down and actually writing. It's been like the most cathartic thing I ever, ever could've done. And it's so fun to sort of put something (on paper) that you're not feeling not too great about and turn it into a positive thing."

Image hosted by Photobucket.comHAPPIER DAYS. Andy and Mandy attend the premiere of her movie, "How to Deal."

I remember an interview she did with TV Guide back in October 2004, when she was asked this question:

Q: How hard was your breakup with Andy Roddick?

MOORE: I've got a great album because of it. I feel like I have something to say. Without the sour, the sweet is never as sweet.

They had broken up in March of 2004. Mandy has said it was because Andy "doesn't like Los Angeles very much and he doesn't care about the industry." Andy has said the split happened because the long distance relationship was starting to take his concentration off his tennis game. That excuse didn't stop him from immediately jumping into the arms of model Lauren Bedford, however.

I haven't checked to see if Mandy's song about Andy has been released yet or even what the lyrics might say. But I'm all for listening to another bitter bitch song on the radio. Listen, if I had to downgrade from someone like Roddick to a bloke like Zack Braff I'd be bitter, too.

Lauren! Lauren! Lauren!

MYSTERY WOMAN. Andy and Lauren at a basketball game: the only time we had seen them out and about off the tennis court.

Don't know much about Lauren. She showed up for a few matches in 2005 and then she disappeared. Apparently, she used to date Tiger Woods and is known as being an "athletic supporter" (i.e. a girl who serial dates professional athletes). She's also a professional model.


Noelle De Guzman said...

Ahahaha, how wicked of you! :D What is with this boy and his taste in women, tsk tsk tsk...

tangerine said...

Right now Andy's just having fun so I'm not reading much into any of his relationships. My theory about Maria is that they are not really dating, they are just f--k buddies. LOL. Those kinds of friends are important to have on the lonely tour road. ;)

Noelle De Guzman said...

OMG Tangy, I had to revert Andy's Wikipedia page twice within the last 24 hours because of the rumors. :o Por ejemplo, here's the second edit. There was even a corresponding edit on Sharapova's Wikipedia entry. :o

tangerine said...

LOL. Stop wasting your time with Wikipedia. For all we know, Maria herself is editing the page. ;)

This page gets an awful lot of views but I am surprised by the lack of comments so far. It's just me and you, babe!

Noelle De Guzman said...

hmm, what an interesting conspiracy theory. :p could it be that Maria has a thing for Andy and is starting all these rumors? how juicy!

heh. I don't even know what I'm talking about.

tangerine said...

I guess I'm going to have to add Lauren Bedford and Mardy Fish to this list at some point. ;)

Hey, i think the no name mystery girl is Tori Praver, but its hard to tell w/ the sunglasses on. She is the new blonde Guess Model and she is the cover of the new Cosmo. But i might wrong b/c Tori is 19 not 18 like you said. Also Tori is in New York alot b/c her agency is Ford Models. Just a guess.
