Brooklyn Decker going all Andy Roddick on a tennis racket? Where’s the footage, internet?

The actress and SI Swimsuit veteran appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson last night to promote her new television show Friends With Better Lives, and it turns out she’s just as hot-headed on the tennis court as her husband.

Decker told Ferguson she refuses to play tennis with Roddick because she’ll “always be the worst tennis player in the house.” Wait, Andy doesn’t let you win a few games, Brooklyn?

“When you’re married to an athlete there’s no ‘letting win,’” Decker said. “That’s not even in their vocabulary.”

  • Watch: Andreas Seppi hits a stunning ‘tweener at the Monte Carlo Masters

    During his first-round win at the Monte Carlo Masters, Andreas Seppi hit one of the best ‘tweeners we’ve seen since Roger Federer hit his stunner against Novak Djokovic at the 2009 U.S. Open. Seppi nailed everyone’s favorite hot-dogging shot past No. 15 Mikhail Youzhny en route to his first top-20 victory of the season.

    Seppi’s rendition of this shot was so eye-popping because he wasn’t going for the trick shot just to dazzle the crowd. The ‘tweener was actually his only defensive option after chasing down a perfectly weighted lob by Youzhny. He struck it clean for a passing shot down the line, and and the ball barely clips the outside of the line. And by “barely” we do mean barely.

    Watch the Italian’s hot shot below.

    Oh stop it, Dustin.

    En route to his first top-10 win, the German hit this leaping front-side tweener for the win against top seed and defending champion John Isner last night at the Men’s Clay Court Championships.

  • Watch: Caroline Wozniacki (with pink hair) sinks a 30-foot putt at the Masters

    There was so much confusion as to what was going on under Caroline Wozniacki’s green cap on Wednesday that we almost overlooked what was going on when she actually took a swing at the ball.

    With her fiancé Rory McIlroy crouched nearby, Wozniacki drained a lengthy 30-foot putt right in the hole. I’m guessing Rory gave her the read on that hole but tremendous touch and execution from the Dane. That has to be the best shot she’s hit all year, and no I’m not just talking about golf.

  • Watch: Roger Federer nails a backhand winner during Sony Open win

    Roger Federer has carried his strong form from Indian Wells into Miami for the Sony Open. Through two matches he hasn’t dropped a set and has lost only 10 points on his serve. Things are clearly clicking for the two-time champion, who hasn’t made it past the semifinals since he won the tournament in 2006, and he continues to add to his 2014 highlight reel.

    Check out the backhand winner Federer stuck against Thiemo de Bakker en route to a 6-3, 6-3 win in the third round. Federer scrambles with some good defense before throwing up a lob. The Dutchman smashes it, but it wasn’t enough, and Federer makes him pay with this winner.

    Watch the point below:

  • Watch: Tommy Haas able to cover the court, surprises Roger Federer

    INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — Roger Federer and Tommy Haas are frequent practice partners, dining companions and occasionally even doubles partners. Needless to say, they know each other well. Therefore, if Haas is able pull off a surprise shot on his good friend Federer, you know it’s something special.

    In their fourth-round match at the BNP Paribas Open on Wednesday, Federer cruelly yanked his friend all over the court before coming to the net, presumably to finish with a soft forehand volley winner. But the 35-year-old Haas motored back across the court to track it down and struck a forehand cross-court pass that ticked the top of the tape for a winner. All told, Haas covered more than 190 feet in the point and still had enough energy to hop over an on-court obstruction afterward.

    “Well, what I like about Tommy is just his intensity he brings to the court,” Federer said after the match. “Every shot he hits, it’s with a purpose, it’s with an idea.”

    There were lots of ideas but no win for Haas, who lost 6-4, 6-4 in a very entertaining encounter.

    Federer was scheduled to play Kevin Anderson in the quarterfinals on Thursday night.

    It can be equal parts infuriating and exhilarating to watch Ana Ivanovic play tennis. From the looks of her new commercial, for Samsung, she knows exactly how that feels.

    In the ad, Ivanovic dances, throws a fit and fist=pumps (obviously) her way through the entire fan experience as she watches a soccer game. If you’re an Ivanovic fan, this all looks all too familiar.

    I don’t really have much to say to introduce this hilarious video of Roger Federer warming up before practice in Indian Wells, Calif. But if this doesn’t win for Viral Video of the Year, the one that tops it might have involve unicorns, ligers and intergalactic tennis warfare in an alternate galaxy.

    INDIAN WELLS, Calif. — The last time we saw Tim Smyczek in a big tournament, he achieved his career-best showing at a Grand Slam tournament by advancing to the third round of the U.S. Open and becoming the last American in the men’s draw. He entered the BNP Paribas Open with a 1-5 ATP Tour record this season, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t capable of some great tennis.

    Watch this no-look backhand winner that he yanks past Jack Sock on Thursday:

    Smyczek went on to beat Sock 6-4, 1-6, 6-4 in an all-American first-round match. The 26-year-old from Wisconsin will play Alexandr Dolgopolov in the second round.

    Radek Stepanek, known for his entertaining style of play, pulled out all the stops against Roger Federer in the second round of the Dubai Championships on Wednesday.

    Stepanek — who snapped an 18-set losing streak to Federer in the second set — earned a break point early in the final set with a little help from this incredible diving backhand volley lob that left even the sure-footed Federer stumbling. The 35-year-old Czech converted the break for a 2-0 lead.
