Fastest Player On Tour?


Just wondering who people think is the fastest player on tour (top 150 or so)? Both Williams sisters are known for being fast. Who else comes to mind?

Well, I haven't seen her lately since she supposedly gained weight, but she is usually one of the best movers on the tour.

I think it is Venus, Serena, Kim, Henin, with a healthy Venus being the best mover of them all...and then everybody else really. Jen used to make the group, but she seems to have lost a step.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Capriati is a very fast player. She can run down any ball hit to her. The Williams' are fast too.

Jennifer Capriati!!!!


Proud to be one of Jen's Hell's Angels!
