Tennis Players as Star Wars characters

I liked the thread about the tennis players as characters from the Simpsons. What about Star Wars? (not all are players)

Here are my suggestions:

Luke Skywalker-Andy Roddick
Han Solo-Jimmy Connors
Princess Leia-Chris Evert
Chewbacca-Pete Sampras (he's really hairy)
Jar Jar Binks-Jim McIngvale
Obiwan Kenobi-Bud Collins

"I resolve to get arrested for indecent exposure," Mary Lynn Rajskub (Chloe on 24).

Jenny, Jenny, Jenny.....how can you cast Bud Collins as anyone but Yoda? Also, since Roger Federer is Roddick's daddy on the court, that would make him Darth Vader in your movie. For what it's worth, here's my cast:

Roger Federer as Luke Skywalker
Andy Roddick as Han Solo
Serena Williams as Princess Leia
Andre Agassi as Obi-Wan Kenobi
Lleyton Hewitt as Young Anakin Skywalker
Kim Clijsters as Princess Amidala
John McEnroe as Darth Vader
Rod Laver as Older Anakin Skywalker
Pam Shriver as Chewbacca
Bud Collins as Yoda
Tim Henman as C3P0 (he's got the accent)
Justine Henin-Hardenne as R2D2
Carlos Moya as Lando Calrissian
Mark Miles or Larry Scott as The Emperor

I'm going to change mine.

I agree with Lleyton as Anakin and Kim as Amidala.

Here are my changes from my original post:

Original trilogy (prequels to come later):
Luke: Andy
Han: Marat
Leia: Jennifer
Chewbacca: Taylor Dent
C3PO-John McEnroe (cause he's whinny)
R2D2-Anna Smashnova-Pistolesi
Obi-wan-Rod Laver
Darth Vader-Jon Wertheim
The Emperor-Dan Bickley
Grand Moff Tarkin-Curry Kirkpatrick
Yoda-Martina Navratilova
Jabba the Hutt-Billie Jean King
Jabba's dancer-Anna Kournikova
Lando Calrissean-Goran
Mon Mothma-Pam Shriver
Uncle Owen-Bud Collins
Aunt Beru-Chris Evert
Boba Fett-Roger Federer
