Friday, August 26, 2011 (Updated 8:52 pm) WINSTON-SALEM — Brooklyn Decker got up from the grandstands after her husband’s match Thursday and walked in the opposite direction of those hoping to stop her for a chat, an autograph, a photo, whatever …About 25 men followed her.The wife of Andy Roddick draws as much attention as he does. Even at his matches. At the Winston-Salem Open this week, the model from Matthews is part of the show.“Welcome to Winston-Salem,” a young man said earlier in the day as she walked into the stadium area.“Thank you,” Decker said.She’s one of us at heart, polite, demure and hardly looking for attention as she sits quietly in the stands and watches her husband play. And while most of the crowds watch Roddick on the court, cameras and necks are craned toward her throughout.Decker, 24 , went to East Mecklenburg in Charlotte before transferring to Butler. She went on to become one of the world’s most recognized women, and was on the cover of Sports Illustrated for the 2010 swimsuit issue.“Can I have your autograph?” a young boy asked, handing her an oversized tennis ball near the end of Roddick’s match.“Yes,” she said, graciously.“Thanks,” the kid said, bounding away to show his father.“You’re welcome,” Decker said, smiling and shaking her head.Just a North Carolina girl at heart.Contact Ed Hardin at 373-7069 or WINSTON-SALEM OPEN What: ATP World Tour eventWhere: Wake Forest University Tennis Facility, 499 Deacon Blvd., Winston-SalemWhen: Through SaturdayToday’s schedule: Sessions begin at noon and 6:30 p.m.TV: Noon-2 p.m., ESPN2; 9-11 p.m., Tennis Channel, recorded.Tickets: $52 per session; winstonsalemopen.com or 793-4265.
