Who do you feel is the most athletic player on the tour?

In terms of pure speed who is the fastest?

Who is the most flexible player and who can stretch the most?

Who has the best footwork?

Which player has the best fitness and who is the strongest?

Who is the best at hitting great shots on the run?

And if you can, find a player hitting a great athletic trick shot *cough cough Clownfils *

Easy question for an easy answer.

Monfils >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> everyone else.

In terms of raw athleticism, no one comes close.

If only he could make use of it to become a top player instead of clowning around

Monfils is in wrong job. Martial arts are way to go for his body type. Taekwondo would be good, but he is too old of course.

Seriously though, Chuck was a one tough customer back in the 60's and 70's.

I think that 20 feet hurdles and pole-vaulting off airplanes are more his kind of sport.

Hard to look past Novak. Monfils & Simon are other candidates.

I love attacking tennis

Best footwork is Fed. But yes, Monfils is a freak. Probably could have been an Olympian.

It's Monfils by a mile. Basically just pick any other sport and Monfils would be naturally good at it.
