Video: Dwyane Wade, Andy Roddick Horse Around on a Tennis Court

⇥⇥⇥⇥⇥⇥

It is fun to see athletes out of their comfort zones, and the Dwyane Wade-Andy Roddick matches in tennis and H.O.R.S.E. from Saturday took at least one guy out of his. Roddick actually looks good with the ball in his hands, swishing a three and converting a between-the-legs layup, though he did lose to the Miami Heat star.

But Wade playing tennis is another thing entirely.

He holds the racket like he's never picked one up before in his life. On the one shot he returns, he pops the ball high into the air. He isn't even in danger of acquitting himself nicely, and he looks like a Ralph Lauren model from 1996 while doing it.

At least this was all for merriment before the Sony Ericsson Open begins today. I wouldn't want to think I'm better than Dwyane Wade at a sport when he's actually trying.
