Andy Roddick
Roddick is a man for the heights

Andy Roddick

I'm a bit of a goofball off the tennis court.

I guess in England that would mean I was cheeky! You have that term here, right?

I'm always trying to play jokes on people or come up with funny one-liners.

People see me on the court and I'm pretty intense. I guess I have a bit of a temper.

So off court I'm pretty laid back, I just go with the flow.

I love bungee jumping, skydiving, anything that gets my adrenaline pumping a little bit.

The next time I go skydiving I'll be able to do it solo.

Up until now I've jumped with someone strapped to me, but I need to sit a class and then it's me on my own.

How do I do skydiving? Easy - just jump!
