In the tradition of threads such as "Best Forehand" , "Best Backhand and "Best Serve" I think it is only fair that we so this thread :) . What player is the quickest around the court (current players :) ) ?

Anna Smashnova no doubt... Who ever seen her play, knows that she is fast as hell!!!

yeah but she isnt now so whats the point to write in every "best forehand , backhand" etc thread that serena (or venus) at their prime are the best when they asked for now, its like you need people to remember how great serena "was" ;)


why isnt dementieva on the list im going to vote for other:(

Agreed.

Either Kim or Vee. It's tough to call, him might run "faster" if you clocked them, but Vee covers the court with her great strides better than any other player. I agree Sugiyama @ her best is up there too...

I actually say Venus because with those long strides, she'll beat all these girls in a race. Remember she still gets to every ball, she just hits them out. LOL

i think aga radwanska. i saw her on an outside court at wimbledon this year, so i was like 3 feet away from her and she is much quicker than any of the people in the poll. she made some unbelievable digs.

that was hardly impressive at all, it was pretty obvious where capriati was gonna hit her smashes. clijsters running in #1 was much more impressive.

on a different topic, watching all the videos made me realise chanda rubin can't volley.

Dec 28th, 2006, 06:12 PM
I'd probably say Venus because of her strides. But Kim and Nastya are also very speedy.

This clip reminded me how insane Clijsters' defensive skills used to be at their very best. :scared:

It's no good being amazingly quick if you can't do anything with the ball except moonball when you get to it (eg. Smashnova, Sugiyama) - it's not going to win you matches against the very best.

when fit, it's DEF Serena, but Venus is quite fast too. Kim is another fast player as well

If you go by that vid Clijsters and Dementieva are the fastest, Sugiyama is fast but that point was just great anticipation. Venus is arguably the fastest woman ever, thats the thing she has over Serena her movement

Stop the madness! Kim is fast. Serena is fast. BUT It's Venus all the way. She's fast with crazy long strides. She would win the 40 yd dash.

Dec 28th, 2006, 09:53 PM
notice how williams sisters fans have an inability to admit that clijsters is the fastest player there is :)

and that, by the way, is not even a close contest. kim by MILES. the poll will reflect this truth, even though the williams fan thread starter placed her all the way at the bottom of the list of choices :tape:

Helen Lawson
Dec 28th, 2006, 09:58 PM
Just speculation, but I select Svetlana. She seems like a horny girl who's free and easy with her body. Lay a couple of lines on her, and she's on her back in no-time.

Kim Clijsters is fast...but Venus can return balls that are not suppoe to be returned...she is fast with those long legs...I think Serena is faster than Kim..when she was smaller..but she has that "sista" shape now...its hard to move fast with all the junk in your trunk...Capriati and Henin are pretty fast too...if i had to rank them it would be

1. Venus
2. Serena
3. Clijsters
4. Henin
5. Capriati

Kim the counter puncher... the fastest???

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Try Maria, Serena, Venus, Elena, Justine, then maybe Kim.

Kim wins by returning balls and waiting for errors, especially when she is ahead. This strategy works rather well but fails often. This is why she has only one Slam.

Venus gets more balls back than Kim to me. Kim depends on her sliding a bit too much. Venus does just as much as Kim on the court without having to slide everywhere. Whenever they play each other it shows that Venus is just a little quicker. That's just how I see it.

Sugiyama is freakin' fast. Smashnova, too. Clijsters gets to everything less from speed and more from the ability to recover from her shots so quickly. But she is fast.

How can be Serena involved in this poll? Ridiculous, don't you know some other players? What about Smashnova or Medina-Garrigues?

It may be ridiculous now, but it sure wasn't a few years ago. In 2002 Serena was one of the fastest. That's what made her so tough to beat because she had the power and speed to go along with it. But I agree, right now she shouldn't be there. But she has been very quick in her last few matches.

For me that's Kim. Her court coverage is really amazing, she runs on every ball. Then it's Justine, her footwork is just great. And then Venus is fast too but i don't think she's as fast as before.

Honestly, people always say it's Kim or Venus...but if you REALLY watch closely it's Justine. She's almost impossible to put a ball away against, and when players DO get her on the defense she's still able to make it difficult for them. I can't tell you how many smashes I've seen her get back in play.
