Roddick to opt out of H-O-R-S-E
The Miami Heat announced that Wade would play Roddick and fellow tennis pro Mardy Fish on the team's practice court following Sunday's workout. But a few hours later, Roddick said his next match in the Sony Ericsson Open will be the same day, likely preventing him from taking on Wade.
"I'm kind of mad," Roddick said after winning his opening match Friday night. "He's like my favorite athlete. So I'm just going to have to pull out -- of the tournament."
Roddick was joking: He's certain to show for his next match against Dmitry Tursunov.
