Would Federer run only with one hand because it's more elegant?
Do late matches cut into his love time with Mirka?

Fedal and Djoko Murray would be beyond Shit at the Marathon. Beyond shit.

Even Lance Armstrong only got a notch under 3 hours. And that was with a lot of training.

People were saying "oh he would run 2:06".

Sure, at his peak, he would have done better.

Id be amazed if any tennis player got under 3:30 for the marathon without any significant training.

They wouldnt be able to finish it, they would end up going out too fast and walking a lot of it.

It doesnt matter how fit you are, nothing can compare your body for running 42.2km. Even if you were relatively fit heading into 25KM, it would very soon change, and those last 17KM will feel like double that.

They are also, very, very heavy for Distance runners.

As I said, most of the worlds elite Marathoners are not over 60KGS.

Infact some of them barely tip 50Kgs in their running gear.

Those extra kilos really would be a burden on the legs. A big burdon. Anything over 250 Metres watch them collapse.

I'd love it if Nole stopped tennis and started training for marethons.

It's a natural fit. He should consider it.

2003,

Please tell us more about marathon, fitness, Lance Armstrong and how tennis players are not even close as fit as the best runners. I have a feeling you left something out.

I don't like Nadal.

I know Ferru's coach, Javier Piles, is a marathon runner.

I would think both would be hard in their own way. I know I couldn't do either one.
