If you ever wondered how it feels to face Andy Roddick's 149 mph serve as it blurs by, you'll soon have a chance to find out. The sixth-ranked Roddick will host the third annual Andy Roddick Charity Weekend, November 22nd-23rd in Boca Raton, Florida.

The weekend includes an evening dinner dance/auction, a kids' zone and professional tennis exhibition. This year's festivities include a semi-formal dinner
dance with both live and silent auctions on Saturday evening, November 22nd at the Boca Raton Executive Club hosted by Roddick and his family.

A pro-celebrity exhibition, starring Andy and his friends begins at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, November 23rd at the FAU Gymnasium. In addition to the popular Andy Roddick free kids day and prizes and a chance to return Andy's 149 mph serve, this year's expansion includes an added Kids Zone with music, raffles, sumo
wrestling, rock climbing, a bounce house, ping-pong tournament and other popular activities for children thanks to the support of Pure Energy Entertainment Group.

Various celebrities that have participated with Roddick in his events have included his girlfriend, singer/actress Mandy Moore, top-ranked Serena Williams, fourth-ranked Venus Williams, Wimbledon semifinalist Sebastien Grosjean and Hall of Famer Chris Evert.

"We are looking forward to an exciting weekend in 2003 as our plans include additions for fun and growth that will enable us to aid our children's charities
and at the same time, allow us to offer a rain or shine guarantee throughout the weekend," Roddick said.
