Don't Call Andy Roddick

A Metrosexual

6/27/2006 6:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

andy_filmmagic_0627_200-1Andy Roddick is not a fan of the man purse.

The tennis star has lashed out on his website against the growing English trend.  Roddick writes "I have seen some guys walking around with man purses here in London.... anything bigger than a money clip or a wallet is to be left to your girlfriend/wife...and just so we are clear you should not be able to throw your "wallet" over a shoulder...if you have a man purse, the wall is waiting."

While Roddick may have an issue with British style he hasn't let it affect his love of London, saying " I think I feel more at home here than in any other city we travel to."

Roddick, who is in England for Wimbledon, even gives his two cents on Kevin Federline and calls him the "Butthead of the Week,"adding "He really did nothing out of the ordinary, but let's be honest, this was inevitable."

Perhaps he saw K-Fed carrying a man purse.

andy roddick should worry less about man-purses and more about getting rid of his very English-looking yellow choppers!

a new definition of metrosexual is a gay guy with no confirmed same sex experience.

what about actually winning a match, perhaps his career isn't that important after all

Actually, Andy should focus on actually winning a tennis match, rather than men's fashions of London...

Leave Andy Roddick alone. It's freedom of speech!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! People for get that. If he has a problem with men wearing or caring purses that's his problem and he can say whatever it is that he wants to, but as long as he isn't throwing more wood into the fire..

This article is poorly written. I can't tell if Andy is calling Kevin a Butthead or if Andy commented on Kevin calling Andy a Butthead. Obviously, this is the first I've heard of it, or I'd know. Do you think "the wall" means putting a male purse-carrier in front of a firng squad? Yes, this article leaves one with more questions than answers.....

Per Kathy's comment saying
" Leave Andy Roddick alone. It's freedom of speech!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "
Remember, that it is ALSO freedom of speech to make comments when someone says something stupid

Andy Roddik has no reason to be saying anything about anyone. Who the hell does he think he is? Just because he is too insecure in his own sexuality doesn't mean other, more REAL MEN, can't express themselves the way they feel appropriate. The Williams sisters are more men than Andy will ever be.

EWW, those teeth are NASTY. No true metrosexual would allow that. He played tennis, what could he possibly know about fashion? That's his opinion, so good for him.

about the teeth... look at other pictures of him, he has nice teeth and about the most beautiful smile on a man.

He's NOT gay, I would not even go as far as to say he's a metrosexual. *rolls eyes*

and finally, like vanessa says... if you were a fan you would know what the other references were.

15. Ok first of all don't make uneducated comments. If you are a fan of andy's you know what the "wall" is, if your not then shut up and don't worry about it. Secondly he IS the #1 american tennis player in the world, and for those of you criticizing when did become a bad thing to be 5th best in the WORLD at anything. Thirdly if you have nothing better to do than be on the internet picking apart someones comments and trying to find fault then you may proceed to the wall also. You can all kiss Andy's ace!!!

I have to completely agree with the above statement!

And add...Andy was not just throwing out random comments he was merely commenting on off the wall topics in "HIS" Blog. For obvious reasons the article above forgot to mention that...or was it to throw out and stir more controversary at the #1 player in the United States aka America!

And if commenting on someone's fashion or lack there of makes you insecure in your own sexuality what does that say abut the people who have posted about his teeth? Personally my computer shows pearly whites so I have no idea what you are talking about as the picturee I see shows nothing of the sort. LOL. Maybe you just could not come up with anything intellectual or worth while posting so you had to make something up or resort to personal attacks. LOL. An obviously doing it to someone you know absolutely nothing about.

The article written about Andy and his so called comments are biased and presented out of context!

Wow. All the people trashing Roddick, get a life would you? Just because you all have yellow teeth, doesn't mean you have to be asses about it and start critisizing his teeth. Which by the way..ARE WHITE!

And, do you really have nothing else to make fun of other than Roddick's teeth? Sheesh, I'll make sure to stay away from you in a dark alley. As Vanessa and Erin said, he is the Number 1 tennis player in the world. I'd like to see you go up and return a few of his serves.

Whatever, this is a waste of my time. Real Roddick fans would actually UNDERSTAND this article, and not start questioning it. Jesus, have a sense of humour!

Can you truly compare Roddick's teeth to most of the british...I think not! Unless you're into stunting the Andy Murray "fangs" style. As for K-fed well, we all know what he is about and is well deserving of the butthead award, (the real Andy Roddick fans well know what this is all about and the wall as well)... nice going Andy. And yes you all are green with envy (oh is that a reflection from your british teeth?) You negative posters can very well kiss his stars and stripes ace! Props to the U.S.A.'s #1... yes he his still our #1, don't judge me for knowing this it's universal knowledge!

i think it's pretty darn obvious what "the wall" refers to. and no, it isn't a firing squad. honestly, some people can be so out to lunch all the time. i'm not that big of an andy fan (though i used to be), but i definitely agree with sara. i bet the people making fun of andy's teeth don't have hollywood smiles either.
