In a recent appearance on the Hall of fame Live, Andy Roddick answered many questions asked by his fans. One fan asked him about a match he lost against Serena Williams when he was 9 or 10 years old. Andy replied to this question by saying,

“Every time we talk she brings this up. There was this story where she sent me a link where she had list her top 5 victories of all time. And sandwiched between one of her many Slam wins was a victory over me. Her logic was that because she beat me when we were 9 or 10 years old, she has an indirect win over many men’s champions depending on how far you take the rule of indirect wins. I was kind of her springboard to her having an indirect win over Roger, Rafa, Andre and Pete. So, in her mind that is an important victory. “
