    LOS ANGELES — Matthew Perry, a former junior tennis player in his native Canada, is going back to the sports world as host of the ESPY Awards.

    He takes over from comedian and Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx, who hosted the previous two years.

    Perry was a nationally ranked junior singles and doubles player in Canada. He has been a familiar face at matches played by his friend Jennifer Capriati over the years.

    The ESPYs will be taped at the Kodak Theatre on July 13. The awards show will air four days later on ESPN.

    Perry, 35, was a co-star on NBC's Friends. His screen credits include The Whole Nine Yards and its sequel, The Whole Ten Yards.
