10:02 AM ET 05.23 | FOX Sports is trying to put together an impressive staff to fill up the shows on their 24/7 sports network FOX Sports 1, hoping to compete with ESPN, and on Wednesday we learned a big name that will be joining the network. According to a SportsIllustrated.com report, FOX Sports has agreed to hire former tennis star Andy Roddick as a co-host for the three-hour show FOX Sports Live. The show feature Roddick and Charissa Thompson, who will be leaving ESPN, as the co-hosts. Roddick's big personality could do well in the co-hosting gig, but it will be interesting to see if he has a wide grasp of sports.

From what I hear.. SPEED channel will cease to exist and become FOX Sports 1.. so if you now have the SPEED channel.. you 'should' have FOX Sports 1

Why have a tennis section if there's only a story every five or six weeks? We're a week into another major, and nary a story about it.

my friend's step-sister makes $69/hour on the laptop. She has been out of work for 6 months but last month her payment was $12919 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more on this site.... www.cnn13.com

The interns are too busy posting repeated NFL threads to post new tennis threads. ;^)
