The tennis community is reeling after news broke that Andy Roddick's longtime agent, Ken Meyerson, had suffered a heart attack and died in his sleep on Wednesday night. Meyerson was 48.

While Roddick was his most high-profile client, the high-energy Meyerson built a career signing a successful crop of players, including Mardy Fish, Bob and Mik Bryan, Justine Henin, Fernando Gonzalez, Chris Evert, Gael Monfils and, most recently, Agnieszka Radwanska and Urszula Radwanska.
