Andy Roddick has filed a lawsuit in Dallas County Court against the cancer charity Miracle Match Foundation, which he alleges bounced two checks to him worth $100,000.

The Courthouse News reports that Roddick played in a September 14, 2012 fundraising event in Connecticut and received two $50,000 checks in advance for his appearance, but three days after the event, the checks did not clear.

Roddick, who lives in Texas, contends that the bounced checks were not an accident and amounts to fraud, theft, and breach of contract.

He also sued WKP Sports and Entertainment LLC, which Miracle Match contracted to put on the event.

“Plaintiffs, through their legal representatives, have made numerous attempts to collect this money from defendants for the services provided by plaintiffs,” the complaint states. “Neither defendant WKP I nor Miracle Match ever intended to compensate plaintiffs for the participation of Roddick in the exhibition tennis match, despite contracting with same for said services.”
