Federer is the most well-coordinated athlete in world history

I cannot think of anyone in any sport with more coordination, footwork, balance, hand-eye, all greater than any athlete we've seen.

Re: Federer is the most well-coordinated athlete in world history

are you Kingfederer ?

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Re: Federer is the most well-coordinated athlete in world history

I think most people would put Ali and Jordan (and maybe Pelé or Maradona) ahead of Federer, but I'm saying Federer

Re: Federer is the most well-coordinated athlete in world history

I'd say that more than half of the NBA and NFL are better athletes than Federer....and obviously guys like Muhammad Ali as well.

As far as being the "most well-coordinated"....i'd say most professional boxers are just as coordinated, but you have an argument for Federer there seeing as how tennis requires a good balance of coordination everywhere from physical to hand-and-eye.
