Ken Meyerson, Roddick's agent, passes away

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.

Meyerson's impact and influence were evident from the tweets and comments from players and tour insiders from all over the world:!/DjokerNole/status/127090483532009472!/jon_wertheim/status/127049576782905344
