Are you talking about movement around the court or just speed?

Because Clijsters slides, Dokic doesn't and thus Jelena has to take 2-3 extra steps when making a wide run, and Hingis anticipates better than Dokic.

If you put them in a race, it'd be much closer I expect.

What! Justine is very fast! I think Kim slides and stretches well but I am not sure she is as fast as Justine especially not moving forward. Hingis and Henin both can move FORWARD and take small steps quickly. Clijsters is pretty fast laterally but does not always change directions so quickly. Dokic does not seem all that fast to me but certainly not slow.

I am always worried for Hingis' movement on the court .Because when she could mot move well on the court ,surely William sisters'd blow her off the court immediately .

I'm still unsure as to who is fastest out of Clijsters or Henin - I think Clijsters LOOKS fastest but I don't know if that's cos her athleticism and flexibility MAKES her look faster. But I would put them in the top two before 3. Hingis and 4. Dokic.

I don't know who the fastest is but 3 of those 4 players are very misleading with their speed.

Martina seems faster than she is because of her anticipation, she starts running before most players do.

Justine seems faster also because of anticipation and because she hits one-handed, so, she doesn't need the extra step.

Kim seems faster because she slides, even on hardcourts.

So, I don't really know.

btw, I think Myskina and Dementieva are faster than those 4, at least Elena used to be.

Henin LOOKS faster because her little legs are just spinning. Kim takes longer strides and has leg muscles that power her across the court in explosive steps, much like Serena.

Nastya reads game almost as good as Hingis, and that makes her look fast. Elena is very fast on the baseline, but she doesn't look fast at all when it comes to moving to the net or chasing dropshots.

Well, if you judge it by how many balls they reach, then it would be:

Clijsters
Hingis
Henin (very close to Hingis)
Dokic

Elena is fast, but she doesn't anticipate well IMO, so she is will actually be between Dokic and Henin in my list.

That is because she IS the slowest. I think that this thread is about overall court movement (anticipation included) so i say:
1. Clijsters
2. Hingis
3. Henin

BIG GAP

4. Dokic (not so slow though)

1) Kim Clijsters - She is as fast as the Williams sisters. She chases down every shot, and changes directions nicely with her slide. I think people aren't always placing her at the top because she doesn't look like she would be fast because she isn't a skinny girl, but her speed is amazing.

2) Justine Henin - Very fast, decent anticipation.

3) Martina Hingis - The only player who has changing speeds, where she is either very slow or very fast depending on the alignment of the planets. Great anticipation, moves foward nice, but doesn't like being yanked from side to side to side at all. Quick, not fast.

4) Jelena Dokic - Ironic, that with her athletic figure and long legs she would actually be the slowest. But she just looks sluggish out there. Just goes to show that speed is more or less a trait people are born with.
