GALLERY: Derek Jeter tops list of athletes with weird phobias

Let’s face it, most of us have things we fear in life, whether it’s spiders, bees or flying, there’s probably something out there that you’d rather stay away from. However, a lot of our fears don’t compare with some of the bizarre phobias of athletes. Take the newly retired Derek Jeter for example. The former New York Yankees shortstop revealed one of his own fears to the...

Video: Andy Roddick Gets Popped in the Groin

I guess retirement isn't all rainbows and fairies if you are Andy Roddick.  The retired tennis star was in Alabama for the Powershare series when his opponent, Mark Philippoussis, decided it would be good fun to aim the ball between Roddick's legs. Fortunately for us it was all caught on camera and fortunately for Roddick the ball bounced first!  Priorities....

Video: Andy Roddick hit in groin by Mark Philippoussis serve

Andy Roddick is a TV guy now.  He's carved out a nice niche as Fox Sports 1's general ex-athlete guy as an interviewer and panelist on Fox Sports Live.  Perhaps that's why he may be a little rusty when it comes to tennis.  Watch as Roddick gets nailed in the groin by Mark Philippoussis in Roddick's PowerShares series (basically the legends tour) debut.  Ouch....

Tennis: Compulsions, tics, and quirks of psychology welcome!

If you’ve watched any amount of tennis, or even if it happens to be the first time you’re either watching or playing some things immediately become apparent. How fast the players move and hit the ball, for one (you miss something watching on television). The dimensions of the court, for another. The interplay between doubles partners. The crowd effect.

Roddick Almost Came To Blows With Djokovic

We knew they weren't the best of friends, but I don't think any of us imagined that Andy Roddick once had Novak Djokovic pushed up against a locker at the US Open! Sounds like things would have become more physical if Roddick hadn't realised Djokovic's trainer was the size of a truck. I just wish this was all caught on camera... it's probably about as violent as tennis gets!
