This Season

We’re focusing on one theme: PEAK PERFORMANCE.

What does it take to achieve greatness? How do you maintain it? And how do you continually find opportunities to improve, in EVERY area of life?

This Episode

Today’s episode features the former Number 1 professional tennis player in the world: Andy Roddick.

He won the US Open in 2003, and the next year he broke the record for the world’s fastest serve – at 155mph.

He held on to a Top 10 world ranking for nearly a decade, and then, on his 30th birthday, announced his retirement. Since then, he’s launched a nonprofit – The Andy Roddick Foundation – and several growing businesses.
