    Roddick's millionaire view.

Former top-ranked tennis player Andy Roddick recently listed his Los Angeles home, a modernist ode to glass and steel tucked between trees with a view worthy of a millionaire.

Roddick, the 2003 U.S. Open champ and wielder of one of the most lethal serves in tennis history, lived in the home with his wife, Brooklyn Decker, an actress and model best known for her appearances in Sports Illustrated's swimsuit editions.

The 4,910-square-foot home is listed for $3.4 million and located in the star-studded Cheviot Hills neighborhood. It has five bedrooms and features pristine white walls and enormous steel-lined windows that look over the trees and neighborhood beyond. The master suite, recently updated, features a glass shower, tiled soaking tub, and views of its own.

In the kitchen, gleaming white cabinets and dark wood flooring evoke a modern take on Mid-Century style.

Elevator service connects the home's three stories, leading to an "outdoor living room" on the upper level -- the perfect place to watch the sunset over Century City.
