Andy Roddick was the king of serving aces in his heyday and this week, he may just be the king of Throwback Thursday. And he has Venus and Serena Williams to thank.
On Thursday, the former world No. 1 uploaded a video from his hometown of Austin, Texas. In the selfie clip, Roddick provided fans with a unique stroll down memory lane inspired by the critically acclaimed movie King Richard telling the story of how the Williams sisters were molded into the groundbreaking champions that forever transformed their sport.
“It was so inspirational. I remember what the processes were,” reflected Roddick as he casually walked. “Obviously their story, Venus and Serena, and where they came from, what they became kind of made me want to check back in with the best parts of tennis when you’re learning the game.”
