Andy Roddick Tennis Lesson Auction

October 15, 2008

To help raise money for Elton John’s AIDS Foundation, Andy Roddick auctioned off an hour long private lesson with him. An hour-long tennis lesson.

At Elton John’s 16th annual Advanta World Team Tennis Smash Hits event this past weekend, recently engaged tennis hottie Andy Roddick put himself on the auction block to help raise money for people in the South who are living with and battling the AIDS virus. Andy originally was just auctioning off an hour-long private tennis lesson taught by him.

During the auction, he decided to up the ante just a bit, and stated he would take his shirt off during the lesson. That got the bids up to $11,000. Wanting to raise as much money as possible, Andy then stated he would teach the private lesson completely sans clothing. The winning bid came from a lucky lady who ponied up $15,000 for the chance to see Andy in all his glory. I, personally, think an hour of Andy Roddick raw is worth more than $15,000, but that’s just me. It goes without saying that I am completely jealous of this lady.

At the event, held at Kennesaw State University in Georgia, Sir Elton said “Forty six percent of AIDS cases are now being reported in the South. We are distinctly aware of the problems here and the South will continue to be a priority for the foundation. All of the money raised here today will stay here in the Atlanta market and in Georgia.”

The annual tennis event is part of the work Sir Elton does with the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

    Hey, the guy needs to plan his future, after maybe winning 1 or 2 more Gland Slam events!

    Heck, when you got nice body why not share it with others and get paid for it, like Beckham!

    Andy has a great body, rumor has it that he may do ads for the racy Joe Snyder line of men’s underwear. More power to ya!

    Wow!!! The guy must have a great body and confidence if he can bare it all on court. He’s a decent man to expose himself for charity. Why can’t more American men not be so hung about about nudity?

    Briana – was the “hung about” bit supposed to be a pun, or just a coincidence..?

    heard a rumor is it true? Says:

    Really? I heard when I went to a party with my bf Tim is a stalker! He paid a hispanic man $200 to stand outside Anderson Cooper’s building until Anderson Cooper walked outside. After the guy called him to tell him he saw him, Tim ran over there as fast as he could to follow Cooper by foot. Do you think that is true?

    Andy Roddick is a stalker I hear Says:

    This isn’t a surprise if they’re both stalkers and 2 stalkers hooked up because my bf told me Andy Roddick still stalks his ex girlfriend in austin.
