Andy Roddick has been unlucky in his professional life. The tennis star would likely have many more major titles to his name if he played in an era that didn’t include the greatest player of all-time, Roger Federer.

But any sympathy you might have for Roddick goes out the window as soon as you realize how fortunate he’s been in love: the guy is married to Brooklyn Decker.

No longer a little-known model, Decker has reached the pinnacle of her business. She headlines the 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. The cover was revealed on last night’s The Late Show with David Letterman, as the host unveiled the photo below as a Times Square billboard.

In related news, THG may soon move its headquarters to midtown Manhattan…

Tweeted Decker last night: “The issue is amazing, glowing, fun, the girls are happy… it’s not over-the-top, the girls and editors should be so proud! THANK YOU ALL!!!”

No, Brooklyn, thank you.

Quick background on the model, who will be interviewed by Letterman tonight and all over the news this week: she hails frim Kettering, Ohio; was discovered in a North Carolina shopping mall; and moved to New York to model.

She’s also guest-starred on Chuck, Royal Pains and Ugly Betty.

We’d like to ugly her betty… if you know what we mean! In case you don’t, just click on the photos below for more shots of Decker in this issue of Sports Illustrated:
