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.

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

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

Default 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.
