Re: Who is the fastest player ?

I think you will get different answers depending on how the question is specified. Fastest over 100m is very difficult to answer, since we essentially never see these guys running flat out in the way sprinters run. I would say now, Monfils probably covers the court better than anybody else on tour, but that doesn't mean he would win a track race with all the players. Phau is famous for being quick but haven't seen him play for a long time, he may have lost some pace.

On 100m Monfils is the fastest easily. On 20m sprint i bet young Fed would have beaten him, he had first 2-3 steps like Il Fenomeno before the injuries

this;:::: Djokovic is extremely flexible and slides wonderfully on all surfaces but he certainly isn't the fastest. Novak probably has the best balance and can twist his body around the best of anyone

I do however think Monfils would be in the running with Nadal still

Re: Who is the fastest player ?

gotta be Nadal or Monfils but tough pick between the two. if only speed equaled success in the case of Gail

Re: Who is the fastest player ?

There's a difference between being fast and the ability to stretch your body over great distances. Therefore, I will not vote for Djokovic and Monfils, but instead Bjorn Phau.

Bear in mind that Phau is nearly 33 here, and makes Fed look slow.

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.
