Improved movement by many players...

List the players whose movement, speed and leg strength have taken them closer to Nadal/Federer/Djoko, etc.

1) Roddick
2) Soderling
3) Berdych
4) Fish (lost about 30 lbs!)


Who else??

And.. no... this is not a thread where haters and bashers are welcome.. This is about improved fitness/movement/footwork/consistency and better execution of offense too.

Re: Improved movement by many players...

the player who i have really noticed in terms of improved movement has been andy roddick (first noticed it at aus open 2009, he dropped about 16 pounds in the post-2008 off season, since then, he is much more mobile and chasing down more balls than he could before), all credit to larry stefanki.

I know many will think this is a joke, but Karlovic is really moving much better this year. He's actually in rallies and not getting wrong footed all the time.

Nadal, Nic Monroe, Marcus Willis, Groth, Tursunov
