Btw I wouldn't call this only a reflex and reactions test, I think its also a test for peripheral vision, fast thinking and awareness, reading and reacting... so theres a few more skills built into this test.

In any case, not surprising Federer is so good, since he is exceptional at this at tennis aswell, reading the game, fast thinking, wrong-footing opponents, reading and reacting and also fast reactions and reflexes at the net with volleys.

These skills are probably why Federer is still able to be one of the best players on the planet and challenge the best at 37 years old.

Exactly. This is a video game, by the way, on which I once won the ticket jackpot at a Dave & Buster's :grin2:
There is also a very random element if they only did one run, as the lights have no pattern, it's completey random, so if some people had many ocurrences of 2 buttons lighting up next to each other, their score will be higher.
My score was much higher than Fed's, but it just means I'm a gaming nerd. I wouldn't read too much into it (clearly Djokovic's reflexes are very good on court).

And what does the bubble size stand for?
The number of measured values. big bubble = more reliable data

(Methods are explained in the Link)

Interesting that Fed topped the group despite being the oldest - with age reflexes get slower that's a proof of his immense natural talent.

Glad to see Cheatovic reveal his true nature too. <img src="https://www.acadiaforum.net/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title=";)" class="inlineimg" />
I saw the video yesterday and a post like this is exactly what I was expecting. Especially to call Djokovic a cheater because of this is just ?? Anyways, thanks for delivering ??

None of these players have reflexes on return as sharp as Novak. That chart is a joke.
The only joke is you ignoring data because it doesn't suit your agenda :rolleyes: Novak has very compact strokes and fantastic timing, those things count for more than sheer reaction speed. It is interesting though that Federer has the quickest reactions considering his reputation for being a fantastic returner of big serves - there may be a link there.

"Only joke is you..." Really? :lol: Talk about agenda, there are many who are pushing different agendas to preserve golden image of Federer. A clue about fraudulent research is that it's measured at AO and that Kyrgios is no.1. Literally worst returner on tour. Use your head.

Anyone with a bit of objectivity can see Federer doesn't have better return reflexes than Djokovic. There are stats available for those who don't believe their eyes.
Federer has great reflexes on net from all the volleying and volleying drills, which probably helped him nail game in OP's video.

Just so. Djokovic is also very explosive at the first step (much more so than Fed or Kyrgios) which is another major part of his returning ability.

So big booh, Djoktards. Djoko is not the best at everything! Must be a joke then. :rolleyes:

NID Federer tops the field. Definitely a link to why he's still competitive. Pretty astonishing at his age, of course, since reaction time is one of the first things that starts declining. However, Djokovic, Isner, KAndy and Cilic are all also 30+.

"Video unavailable"! Is there another link?
BTW, the graph is a bit misleading due to time axes being skewed. Federer's reaction time is 0.62s, Kyrgios' 0.61, Djokovics 0.64. 2/100 of a second is actually not much of a difference. At the average speed of 180 km/h 0.02 sec translates to ball traveling 1m. So it can be compensated by standing 1 m behind more.

Thought of that too. I think that's why Rafa is so low on the list because he waits serve with his back against the wall. You have to go to tennis tv youtube channel to see the video.
