"While Husband Sleeps, Brooklyn Decker Says 2013 Might Be Andy Roddick’s Last Year On Tennis Tour
by Tom Gainey
Speaking to the Dan Patrick Show on the radio this morning, former SI swimsuit covergirl and model Brooklyn Decker revealed that husband Andy Roddick might retire after the 2013 tennis season to concentrate on his burgeoning radio/media career.
“You never know what can happen in the world of tennis with injuries and all that kind of stuff,” Decker said. “But his timeline is hopefully full-time radio in about two years or so.”
Roddick has been on Fox Sports Radio this year on weekends with co-host and friend Bobby Bones and according to Decker, the duo hope to go daily once Andy retires.
Decker, who does not appear in the latest swimsuit issue, was calling from Roddick’s room in San Jose where Andy won a late match last night and was still asleep in the other room.
“He is sleeping,” Decker said. “That’s why I called you guys I didn’t want the phone to wake anybody up.
“I find it a bit weird that we are sneaking in a phone call around his schedule,” she added. “I’m like whispering in the back corner.”
Patrick also joked that if he had been invited to the Roddick-Decker wedding he would have brought a Roger Federer Wimbledon trophy as a gift.
Roddick, 29, injured his ankle yesterday but is hopeful to play Friday in the quarterfinals.
