Better mover in tennis: Federer or Murray?

I think those two are the players with better movement in tennis these days.

But who gets the edge? I'd say Federer, thanks to his incredible agility and footwork.

PS Don't confuse movement with speed and court positioning/awareness. Monfils and Djokovic aren't very good movers for example, they have great speed, range and flexibility, which is different!

Laterally Murray, forward to net, Federer. Federer maximises offensive potential with his movement, see Wimbledon

Federer is more fluid, Murray is more dynamic.

Re: Better mover in tennis: Federer or Murray?

The initial urge is to say Federer because his movement is so much prettier, floating around the court like Muhammad Ali on his best days. But Murray's gritty style contains spectacular lateral movement which Federer can't match, so all in all they might be fairly equal.

Federer of course.

This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Re: Better mover in tennis: Federer or Murray?

Wait, so you're saying movement is something separate from all of: court positioning/awareness, speed, range, and flexibility.

...

What the hell is "movement" then if not all of those things?

According to this joker, Djokovic has no backhand, no movement, no serve, no forehand... Astounding how he has managed to accomplish as much as he did while doing nothing well

Re: Better mover in tennis: Federer or Murray?

Federer is the best mover ever inside of the court.
On the baseline he is not that impressive (relatively)

Pushing like a fraud to be correctly with him. The world saw his exposure at RG.

Re: Better mover in tennis: Federer or Murray?

Another thread designed to disrespect and undermine Novak, since he is by far the best mover in tennis today.

Not surprising at all considering who is the OP and how big hater he is.
