Lisa Guerrero: Um ... but it's for a good cause

Lisa Guerrero Sir Elton John just hosted his 16th Annual Advanta World Team Tennis Smash Hits event over the weekend to benefit those with AIDS in Atlanta and surrounding communities in Georgia.

Several stars and tennis legends were there, including Andy Roddick, who went well beyond the call of duty to help raise money.

He originally was going to auction a private, hour-long tennis lesson to the highest bidder. Then, to sweeten the deal, he offered to take off his shirt for the “one-on-one instruction.”

Finally, the recently engaged Roddick offered to give the lesson -- fully nude! Winning bid: $15,000 from a female fan.

Wonder what Anna Kournikova could’ve gotten for the same offer?

Lisa Guerrero has covered Super Bowls, NBA championships and the World Series, along with the Oscars, Emmys and Grammys. As an actress, she has appeared on "Frasier" and "The George Lopez Show" and as Billy Baldwin's long-suffering wife in the film "A Plumm Summer," which she executive-produced.
