His tennis idol growing up was Andre Agassi and for a brief time as a teenager he trained intermittently with Venus and Serena Williams.
Roddick played competitive tennis all throughout his childhood and teenage years but considered quitting at age 17 when he had a losing streak in the juniors. His coach Tarik Benhabiles talked him into giving tennis another go for just four more months.
