Andy Roddick has a lot of love for his newborn son, but there is no love — in a tennis sense — for him just yet.

The retired tennis star — who welcomed Hankhis first child with wife Brooklyn Decker, on Sept. 30 — admits he hasn’t thought about his baby boy’s athletic ability quite yet.

“I don’t even know. That hasn’t even been on my mind yet,” Roddick, 33, told reporters during a charity event for World Team Tennis and Elton John AIDS Foundation in Las Vegas Monday.

The new dad jokes, “My wife is still getting over the scar tissue of my career, so it might be a little while.”

After speaking with reporters, Roddick was seen showing pictures of his son to event organizers.

As for fatherhood, he says, “It’s been a fun process so far.”

A fun process so, far?? This has only been three weeks! You have the rest of your life with him to get through! And Hank? Hmmmm. Short for Henry, maybe?
