New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is arguably one of the best football players in the NFL, and apparently he wasn't too shabby at tennis as a kid.

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.
