Ken Meyerson, a tennis agent who represented tennis greats, including Andy Roddick, Justin Henin and Chris Evert has passed away at the age of 48. He died on Oct. 19 at home in Florida with the cause of death not immediately known.

"Ken was a very a hard worker and was always determined to do his best, both for his clients and for his company," agency chairman Arnaud Lagardere said in a statement. "His clients were his extended family and there was nothing he wouldn't, or couldn't, accomplish on their behalf. Ken is, and will remain, an inspiration to all of our agents."

Meyerson was formerly the president of BEST Tennis from 2009-2009, and had also worked with ProServ and SFX Sports Group. He is survived by his wife, Claudia, and two daughters Charlotte and Emily.

"I love you and miss you. I will be forever grateful for your faith & loyalty. You will forever be my brother. As always 'thanks Meyerson,'" tweeted Roddick.
