Roddick takes on D-Wade in showdown of athleticism
  | By Long Island Tennis Magazine Staff

Two stars from two different sports came together in Miami over the weekend for a showdown in both of their respective sports. Tennis great and Grand Slam champion Andy Roddick took on NBA world champion Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat.

The day started with tennis, but Wade soon realized that maybe he should stick to basketball as he was unable to even attempt to return the 100-plus mile per hour serves that Roddick hammering towards him as he found himself ducking away from them rather than taking a swing. When he did get the opportunity to rally, things didn't get much better for Wade as he managed to hit the ball everywhere except for the actual tennis court.

Wade had his chance to get even next though as the event turned to basketball.

Wade set the tone in warmups showing hsi full arsenal of dunks. Then the game of H-O-R-S-E began. Roddick kept up with Wade early showing an unexpected shooting touch, but Wade (who was not allowed to dunk) took over and won.

The jokes and playful banter between made the event a great success for all in attendence, and the players graciously stayed after to sign hundreds of autographs.
