He joked about how, after all this time, they did not know his actual handle as they wrongly tagged him in a recent video that they posted on their official social media handle.

The video was based on the discussion regarding the best punishment for the constant and never-ending issue of racket-breaking violations in the sport of tennis. Many players have lashed out against the tennis authorities for awarding penalties and fines for this violation.

The American tennis player had a different notion altogether. Andy Roddick said that it was perfectly fine as long as he was breaking his own racket and not harming anyone else in the process.
