Andy's appearance on David Letterman last night was great. Andy was relaxed and funny and best of all, no holes in his jeans! Although wearing black socks with brown shoes is a no-no. C'mon Brooklyn, help fix your man's wardrobe. :)
The US Open Facebook page has lots of photos of Andy making the rounds yesterday. Check them out. But those pics of Andy wearing a Yankees baseball cap? Ow, my eyes, my eyes...

Today is a busy day for Andy Roddick, and for his fans whose DVR's will be busy.
For the first time ever, the US Open draw was announced live on ESPNews early this afternoon. Andy is in Roger Federer's half of the draw, and in Novak Djokovic's quarter. Nadal, Murray, and Del Potro are all on the other side. Andy's first-round opponent will be Germany's Bjorn Phau.
At 1:00pm today, Andy threw out the ceremonial first pitch for the Yankees-Rangers baseball game.

This afternoon, Andy will tape his guest appearance on The David Letterman Show, which will air tonight (Thurs., August 27) at 11:35pm EST. This is Andy's first appearance on Letterman in six years.
Later on this evening, Andy will attend the 10th annual BNP Paribas Taste of Tennis. Also attending will be Lleyton Hewitt, Tommy Haas, Billie Jean King and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who will cook-up culinary aces alongside TV personality and celebrity chef Bethenny Frankel, Carla Hall and Ariane Duarte from Bravo’s “Top Chef,” and Gotham Bar and Grill’s Alfred Portale.
On Saturday, Andy will attend 2009 Arthur Ashe Kids' Day which will air on Sunday, Aug. 30 (Andy's 27th birthday!) on CBS from 12:00pm - 1:30pm EST. I will also be attending AAKD, yippee! Click here for more info if you want to go to AAKD. Other players who are planning to attend: Roger Federer, Serena Williams, Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, Maria Sharapova, Kim Clijsters, James Blake, and Rafael Nadal. A superstar roster, for sure.
Also on Sunday, ESPN Classic will re-air the classic Roddick-Nalbandian 2003 USO semifinal at 7:00pm EST. If you have ESPN Classic and never saw this match I highly recommend it. As one Twitter fan put it, "This was the match that made me a Roddick fan." He wasn't the only one.
