Journalists aren’t known for being the politest of people but usually a pretty face will make them slightly less irritable.
Not so much for Brooklyn Decker. The 24-year-old model has been on hand at the U.S. Open for the past several days watching husband Andy Roddick advance.
Last weekend a group of reporters started yelling at Decker to “hurry up and get on the bus,” when they mistakenly thought she was a) with them, b) standing between them and the last media bus of the day.
Decker in turn walked away embarrassed, according to the New York Post. No doubt such an incident would not have happened — or gone a far darker way — this week, as security was noticeably stepped up the closer the country gets to to the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Decker noted on her Twitter, “A bit of a shift in mood at the Open today… Officers in helmets carrying fully automatic weapons. Good to see they’re taking precaution.”
Roddick’s U.S. Open journey ended Friday (Sept. 9) when he lost three straight sets to Rafael Nadal.
