For the birds- Andy Roddick trips over line judge at Australian Open

Roddick joked that he ran into a inmovable object and that the judge had a career in professional wrestling ahead of him. From AP-

Andy Roddick took a tumble on his way to a first-round win Monday, tripping over the foot of a line judge.

Roddick rolled to the ground and angrily reproached the man when he stood.

“Move out of the way when you see a player coming,” Roddick told the official before resuming the match with Thiemo de Bakker of the Netherlands and winning 6-1, 6-4, 6-4.

Roddick, who is just coming off a knee injury, said he was all right after the collision. I do like that he felt good enough to joke about it afterwards.

Where was the stadium police when this was happening? That trespasser should have had his wings clipped!
