Roddick to host Saturday Night Live

http://www.tvtome.com/SaturdayNight...on29.html#ep550

Seems to be right before Houston.

This is a pretty big deal. When was the last time a tennis player hosted the show? Was it Chris Evert?

Oh good- we finally get to see what a donkey looks like hosting a late night comedy show!

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

Hope at least this time he uses his one million from the Open to buy some clothes!

Does he know how foolish and disgusting he looked on Letterman with those worn out jeans?!

The American sweetheart since he has won his 1st slam will be invited to many shows etc. Frankly, I don't like the SNL episodes where they have athletes. Most athletes are not actors (of course Serena is working at it) and they always look awkward and are usually not funny.

Very Cool!!! Maybe he will bring Mandy with him so we can all drool over her!!!! I dont get why people here rag on him... he is a great tennis player and seems really down to earth.

Either way this is great for tennis!!!

That's amazing news for tennis. It will bring a lot of recognition for not only him but the sport. I thought that when they originally said a tennis player was going to be on the show that it would be for a little part, I didn't realize he would be hosting.

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck

As if there was any doubt who it would be when Werthless mentioned it weeks ago . . . color me surprised that he didn't wrangle an invitation for his girlfriend to be the musical guest, tho. She's gotten just as much out of his winning the US Open as he has. Funny how that works.

wow I was sure it was going to be Serena and Venus (their tv appearances have been much better than Andy's so far)...but I guess Pmac's reach at NBC is just too high
