If there was a 100m sprint to be won, who of this group of somewhat defensive players would win? I didn't include Serena because I think she is the fastest sprinting player currently.:angel:

Wozniacki
Zvonareva
Jankovic
Radwanska
Kirilenko
Venus
Kim

Who would win? :drool:

I would say Kirilenko coz she's the lightest I guess. The rest of the girls is too heavy (Caro, Vera) or is not a good runners (Aga). Venus has the body but is too old. Jelena could have some chances coz she moves really well on court but not sure for how long and if she would be in shape for the run. Kim has a hell of a legs and she would be second or even could beat Maria if she would start faster. 100 meters is short but chellenging.
In Daegu I hope Asafa and Veronica will win. Run Jamaicans!

Though I can probably take a stab at it, this is really a unrealistic poll. Cause 100M is over 300 ft, and no one on a Tennis court ever runs that long.

It's a matter of players running in short, 10-20 meter burst (33-66'), vs a 100M race (over 300+'). It's not the same, and we would only be extrapolating the true winner, from the most specious means, or projecting via unknown or off the court evidence and hearsay.

After saying all that, if you would of asked me several years ago, I would tell you (and in this order):

Venus
Jankovic
Kirilenko
Wozniaki
Kim
Zvonareva
Radwanska

Gosh.... hard to say. Movememnt in tennis is nothing like a 100m race unless you're talking about running to drop-shots but even then :sure:

anyway I voted for Wozniacki

Venus use to run track and is a runner. She would beat anyone at a sprint on the WTA tour in my opinion.

Venus seems like she fits the bill for a sprinter more than the other ladies. Wozniacki is fast mostly because of her anticipation. She reads the game decently and that already gets you one step in tennis. I don't think she would be tremendously fast in terms of just pure speed. Her legs don't lend themselves to that. Venus, I think, would be a sprinter if she wasn't a tennis player. She's just built for that. Kim would be a soccer player, Jelena could be a gymnast or swimmer...

Venus is too skinny to be a sprinter...she has a long body and skinny. She would be a good long distane perhaps...tall girls do better in the long runs.

Serena has super powerfull legs. she would do amazingly well...to do well in a 100 meter race u need a huge set of legs that power through...its only 100 meters so serena would do fine:):p;)

Jelena Jankovic has an amazing body...strong legs and she is very explosive as well...she wouldnt be far behind Serena.

Kim is extremly fast too...id put her up there too.

Venus or Steffi Graf type players would win this against their peers at their best.

I'd be inclined to go with Venus, but she's really slowed down and has gotten old. I think it would be between Kim, jaja, and Maria.

200m+, yeah, I'd give it to Vee. 100m I'd still go with Serena. The first 20m would go to Woz' and Kim, then round about the 40m mark Serena would begin to take over. She would begin to fade right around 85m and Vee would challenge her, but Serena would hang on. If the race continued to the 200m mark, Vee crushes the field.

no serena on 100m would be killed by lighter players like kirilenko, jj, schiavone, don't know about venus, somebody says she was a sprinter, but her legs don't look to have those explosive muscles, they look too thin, anyway venus and serena are the best at playing tennis and that what matters. on a sprint i would choose schiavone on wta and of the players of the poll i would choose kirilenko

Maria would lead to 80m and then choke against top seeds ;)

Why are people saying Woz? In terms of pure footspeed she's one of the slowest on the list. She has great anticipation and A++ stamina though, so a marathon run would be where she would excel.

Venus was going to be a track star if not for tennis.

She is really not that fast. Watching her match vs. Vinci she looked very slow having to get to the slices and adjust her positioning. She has good not great side to side movement with great anticipation but moving forward she is incredibly slow.
