Washington, Nov 5 : Tennis player Andy Roddick has backtracked on a deal to give tennis lesson in the buff after a woman bid 11,200 dollars for the chance at a charity auction.
The offer from Roddick was auctioned off at one of Sir Elton John's AIDS Foundation fundraisers earlier this year (08).
However, Roddick has backtracked over the naked training, insisting it was just a joke.
"First and foremost, I am not going to be playing naked tennis. It was said in jest and the lady who bid was really cool afterwards," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
