Venus vs Steffi : Who runs faster on the tennis court?

I'd go with the long legged graceful Venus Williams. She is considered by many in tennis to be the fastest and most athletic female tennis player in the modern era.

Thumbs down

I don't understand why some fans have to create such polls ?
It's like asking who has the better backhand slice between Venus or Steffi ?

Of course, Venus is way way way faster than Steffi. She's probably the fastest out there.

I haven't voted on this particular poll because I really don't see the point in this discussion.

I've seen both players play live and both are extremely quick and athletic.

But it is tennis, not 100 metres.

Over all, Steffi without a doubt.

Venus possibly covers ever so slightly more court, but that's because she has a longer reach. However, Graf was also lightning fast in the other departments that must be taken into consideration. Her footwork was perfect, and Venus can't say that. Venus' footwork can often look cumbersome.

I cant' say who is faster, but Steffi's foot work was impeccable. Beautiful tiny steps. Rarely out of position to hit the ball.

I have no problem with people saying Venus is the fastest ever, she probably is. But to say Venus is "WAY faster" than Steffi is a huge exaggeration. Way faster than Davenport or Hantuchova maybe. Steffi was freakin' fast too.

i love vee, but covering court and been fast is not the same, in the speed factor i think its steffi, i mean just with her footwork she could run for any ball no matter where it was, when she got the ball she could hit the ball faster, spec. her forehand.

Of course, peak ASV was faster than either.

Justine Henin is the fastest female tennis player to date , Venus close behind but as mentioned she reaches much more than tiny Justine which counts a lot in tennis
