Wertheim and Roddick then switch to tennis to talk about Roddick's work with Ryan Harrison and the role that tennis plays in his life right now, especially as a new father to a baby boy. Roddick also talks about the state of American tennis and his experiences with "hype" and being pegged as the next U.S. player to win a Grand Slam. Roddick also discusses Sharapova's positive drug test and it's repercussions, espeically on her Hall of Fame candidacy, as well as his relationship with Serena Williams.
Also on the podcast, Roddick and Wertheim talk about Novak Djokovic—does Roddick wish the World No. 1 had more competition or is his dominance good for the sport? He also talks about other sports, fatherhood and more.
