who is the best athlete?

We know who is the fastest and most powerful. But who is the best athletically.

Consider speed, power, durability, reach, and general athletic ability with regards to all surfaces. Racket skills should not be taken into account.

give reasons as well. it would be more conducive for discussion's sake.

one notable omission : monfils.

I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

Re: Best athlete poll

Out of those, Blake. Kleybanova is in a league of her own.

Re: Best athlete poll

Strictly based on athletic ability alone Monfils takes the cake. He could probably play basketball if he wanted too, or many other sports.
