Briefcases, Models and Swimsuits

For the past few years, my sister in law has had a major crush on Andy Roddick. Well Monday was a sad day for her as People magazine announced that Roddick is engaged to swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker. In related news, half of Roddick's fan base just left the building. What's interesting is the timing of his engagement. He said it happened a "few weeks ago" which would coincide with he and Jimmy Conners parting ways as player and coach. I guess Jimmy figured Andy was no longer going to be an enabler of his playboy ways. ;-) (I kid the Jimmy Connors)

You've got to hand it to the Americans. Marty Fish is engaged to a briefcase model from Deal or No Deal who moonlights as an attorney, James Blake is dating a Victoria's Secret model, and now Roddick is engaged to a swimsuit model. May I also add that Roddick was the first one to "date" Sharapova on the tour? This guy gets around more than Martina Hingis. Bravo!

If you read my Palm Springs post or watched SportsCenter last weekend you'll remember that newly engaged Marty Fish beat Roger Federer in straight sets at the Pacific Life Open. I wonder if Andy, who is 1 and 15 lifetime against Federer, thought Marty might be onto something and went out and threw the rock. We'll find out Thursday as Roddick and Federer play in the Quarters of the Sony Ericsson Open. I'm doubting Feds will give him an engagement present win.

Did anyone else hear that Federer's girlfriend is preggers? If so, you're the man Fed, but keep in mind what happened to Pete after his first kid.

My pick: Roddick gets Federeratred again 7-6, 6-3
