I spent the bulk of my formative years on a tennis court training to be a world-class athlete. Let the record show that did not pan out. But being able listen to one of my childhood tennis heroes tell stories about how he came up through the ranks to eventually compete with and beat idols of his own, the likes of Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras, was beyond surreal. Andy talks about how he accidentally created the fastest serve on the planet, and discusses both the highs and lows of his career. And you might be surprised to learn just how great a storyteller Roddick is, who is not only a complete open-book, but also a wildly entertaining personality.
You can also learn about the Andy Roddick Foundation, which a nonprofit organization focused on closing the educational achievement gap by providing less privileged children with better opportunities outside the school day. This is a wonderful organization Roddick began that is nearing its 16th anniversary!! Help support this amazing cause and DONATE HERE.
