Re: Who is the fastest player ?

Bjorn Phau, even at the age of a grandpa, is the fastest player in the world. It's no competition.

Re: Who is the fastest player ?

Monfisl and Djokovic are getting distant balls coz of stretching abilities imo and the fastest i think is Nadal.

He's a good short distance sprinter imo, yet a bit rigid (also perhaps coz of extra muscles)

Re: Who is the fastest player ?

About fastest acceleration it is obviously PHAU this guy is obviously have got extremely rapid acceleration !
Honorable mentions: Davydenko (his lateral acceleration was amazing) , Hewitt , Santoro (great anticipation about accelerating)
About who's the fastest ? : Obviously Monfils and Nadal !

Re: Who is the fastest player ?

You put them on a track and Monfils would dominate the race. Though he would probably get hurt before he reached the finishing line.

Re: Who is the fastest player ?

Why no Phau in the poll? Even if he's lost a half a step, he's still faster than these guys.

After him, it's probably facepalmfils in terms of raw speed.

Re: Who is the fastest player ?

It seems that 90% of MTF doesn't know that faster RAW speed doesn't automatically convert into better court coverage and faster movement around the court !

Re: Who is the fastest player ?

Agassi said that Phau as one of the quickest tennis players he has ever faced . Is it true ?

Re: Who is the fastest player ?

Peak Nadal is in the discussion, but not current Nadal. His insane gets are as much to do with his footspeed as his anticipation and defensive skills.
Peak Phau, Santoro, Monfils, maybe Chang. Dunno how Borg would match up to, say, Nadal.
