Clownga obviously. Most probably would have a better career too than in tennis as well

Tsonga. If there's one sport he'd beat Murray in, it's boxing.

Definitely not Nadal. He's far too slow between points, you just don't get that kind of breaks in a boxing match.

I think Roddick might be good. He's quick, and you don't get a serve that fast unless you can learn to punch as well.

MuzzaLovah is right about Murray, and he is quite a boxing fan, no?

Berdych and Tsonga would be awesome.

Berdych has the reach, but he is too much a big pussycat and a pretty boy. Did you see how he reacted when Almagro when for his face with a tennis ball? Imagine if that was a fist? He's be out of the arena back to banging models in like two seconds.

Murray is much too stiff.

Tsonga's flexibility is good but footwork not good enough.

After Nadal, Monfils maybe because very flexible, quick and long arms.
If Monfils boxes like he plays tennis, he'd knock himself out attempting a drop kick.

Caroline Wozniacki on the women's tour. She cross-trains with boxing.
