USOpen.org had a brief chat with young tennis star Andy Roddick where he was asked about rumors that he and Jessica may have met and exchanged telephone numbers. Andy denied the reports and said it has been a distraction for him at this year’s tennis tournament.
Here’s the brief Jessica exchange:
Q. Forget the match, we want to hear about Jessica Simpson.
ANDY RODDICK: Thanks, I’ll squash this right now. Maybe Bob was joking or something.
I wish. You know, I feel bad because she probably gets this all the time and I never do. (Laughter). No, I would just like to squash this right now. I’ve never talked to her. I never met her. You know, I don’t know what else to say.
Q. Bob thinks you’re stalking her?
ANDY RODDICK: I guess. I mean, maybe this was Bob’s idea of a joke, you know. I don’t know.
Q. Would you like to?
ANDY RODDICK: (Laughing). Sure. I mean, no, I like — you know, you guys are laughing at me.
No, I mean it would be great to meet her. I don’t know, it’s been a serious distraction. I would just love to squash it right now because it’s — there’s no dice, I don’t think.
Q. Talk to us about tennis then.
ANDY RODDICK: Tennis, I can talk about better.
