Tennis champ Andy Roddick made a special appearance yesterday during a exhibition round at the Masters.

Roddick, who is recovering from an illness, was in Augusta where he traded in his tennis shorts for overalls to caddy for touring pro and former champion Zach Johnson during the Masters Par 3 contest.

“He’s a Midwest boy, I’m a Midwest boy, and this is the first time he’s here. And he wanted to caddy,” Johnson said to the USA Today. “I don’t have much family here this year, which is a rare thing, so I said what the heck. I’ve always wanted to meet him. I’m a sports freak in general and I’m a tennis freak, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to meet him.”

“Great day today! Front with JByrd and @stewartcink. Then par 3 with @andyroddick on the bag! 75 deg weather at Augusta Natl…#perfectday”, John said on twitter.

Andy tweeted his on message of thanks. “Big thanks to @zachjohnsonpga for letting me tag along yesterday! Gonna watch him do work at Augusta this week.”

During the event, Roddick took a swing at a hole at the Masters. Here’s the video:

“I was coming here with some buddies and thought it would be cool if I could caddie for someone,” Roddick said to “Not only did I get to walk with someone, but I got to walk with a champion.”

Fritz Says:

He sucks at golf, but realistically he is not much better at tennis. Also, I wonder has he ever taken that baseball cap off, for example when he sleeps or shower?

stu Says:

Fritz, these days I think he is wearing it more to cover the bald spot…

dari Says:

Did that go in the water? At least it was an attractive swing besides all the grass kicking up.

Fred Says:

so much for being “sick”!

skeezerweezer Says:

Do you guys play golf? The guy has an awesome golf swing!!!

But……didn’t hit the green :(

dari Says:

its a pretty swing, huh, skeeze?
go ARod, second athletic career!

Swiss Maestro Says:

roddick sucks at tennis? you must be a total idiot to say that.

andy has been unlucky to play in the last 10years when the courts have been slowed down. if he played in the 90s when ivanisevic was a dominant grass courter, andy would have at the least split those wimbledons and USopens with Sampras. to be in the top 10 like he has been for the past 7/8 years on these god-awful-slow-courts is a tribute to the man’s tenacity and hardwork.

how many countries have players that can lead his team to a World championship (davis cup) in a sport which is not even in the top 10 sports in their country?

andy boy, AMERICA is proud of you. keep up the good work.
