Wink Fastest players.

Who are the fastest player on the tour in your opinion. Lets say we put them on a 100m track who would turn out to be the fastest? I will go with Hewitt with Coria just behind him Roddick would something like number 3 because when he is on he can chase down some incredible dropshots but the problem is he is so lazy so we don't get to see his great sprinter's qualities. Srichaphan also deserves a mention here.

There an only be One Nadal

Re: Fastest players.

in a 100m dash? The taller, lankier players have a huge advantage.

So I doubt Hewitt or Coria would be the fastest on the tour in a 100m dash. I'd have to go with monfils.

Ferrero- The mosquito of tennis.
Srichaphan- The Thai- ger of tennis.
Safin - The of tennis.
Bagdatis- The quotesman of tennis "my coach will watch, i will sleep with my girlfriend"
Kiefer- The naive guy, "yeh, me and seb are good friends"
Santoro- The double handed wizard of tennis.
Lopez- IS my hair right? IS my lipstick right?
Moya- The tatoo and muscles of tennis (although nadal kicks his ass in that department).
Tipsarevic- The tatoo of tennis, competing with moya.
Djokovic- Stole Jiri's surname

Sorry if I left out your favourite, just PM me to let me know-- thanks.

Re: Fastest players.

Labadze, then Ginepri.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Fastest players.

Many players have said Nadal isn't the fastest but he anticipates a lot so that's why he gets lots of balls back.
How did I forget Monfils,he is tall with strong tall legs, but I still think Hewitt is the fastest on the tour.

Re: Fastest players.

being the fastest on the tour doesn't mean you'd be the fastest in a 100m dash.

Sure Hewitt or Coria can accelerate and reach their top speed faster than other people. But over the course of 100m, where that really allows you to get into your stride and actually shows how fast you really are able to run... monfils would crush both hewitt and coria.

So basically: in a 25m dash - i'd pick hewitt
in a 100m dash - monfils by a landslide
