At this year's U.S. Open, there will be more attention than ever on Andy Roddick, whose Wimbledon final was the greatest performance of his life—and possibly the greatest match in tennis history. That's a very good thing if you happen to be a fan of his dazzling (and perpetually courtside) wife, supermodel Brooklyn Decker

Brooklyn Decker walks into New York’s Jane Hotel straight from a flight from Texas, where she’s been swimming in Austin Lake and spoiling her bulldog, Billie Jean. She’s double-take tall with a perfect mess of blond hair, ripped jeans, and a loose pink tank top draped over her nearly six-foot frame. The only jewelry she wears is a wedding band, some tiny skull earrings, and a thin gold necklace I ask her about. “Oh,” the 22-year-old Charlotte native says, checking the hardware. “It has an A on it. How cheesy.”
While Decker has no trouble attracting her own attention—she’s the star of four straight Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues and an upcoming show hosted by Dan Patrick—the man behind the A is husband Andy Roddick. Spotting Decker in the stands looking like the picture of all-American cool has become half the reason to watch Grand Slam tennis and yet another reason to root for the tireless if sometimes overshadowed Roddick: More Andy means more Brooklyn. This month the former high school cheerleader and class president will be riding the No. 7 train to Queens from the couple’s Manhattan apartment for the U.S. Open, where the red-hot Roddick will be gunning for a post-Wimbledon rematch against Roger Federer—and Brooklyn will get plenty of screen time.
Decker exudes supernatural supermodel poise, but there’s one topic that rattles even her: She met her husband when his agent called hers to arrange a date. “That happens all the time to girls,” Decker says, blushing a little, “but his was the one number I kept.” For their first get-together, Roddick took her to dinner, then an Upright Citizens Brigade comedy show. “He was the first to admit that he kind of stalked me,” Decker says. “But his line was ‘It’s only stalking if the other person doesn’t like it.’ ”--will welch
