Yes @drewbrees beat me in tennis when I was 9 and he was 11. Twice.... I finally beat him and he quit tennis. You're welcome football— andyroddick (@andyroddick) January 11, 2014
According to Andy Roddick, Brees beat him in tennis not once, but twice when they were young. Apparently, once Roddick was finally able to take Brees down, the future All-Pro gave up tennis.
I guess we have Roddick to thank for Brees choosing football over tennis, and I think we can safely say the Super Bowl-winning QB chose the right sport.
