The power to fly: you could be like Superman without the superhuman strength. You could smash all overheads and you'd never get lobbed. Drawbacks: your reaction time would not change so the power of flight will not give you quicker reflexes, just the flight itself.

Superhuman speed: you could be like the Flash. You can chase down any ball and change directions on a dime. Drawbacks: you need to control your new found speed so if you swing too fast without control, the balls will go long. You will not be able to fly.

Which power would you pick and which power could help you beat Roger Federer?

I actually chose superhuman speed but it just came to mind that if i had the power of flight i would have a killer serve. just toss the ball up really high and smack it down lol.

Yeah, but with superhuman speed, your swing would be faster than Roddick's so as long as you get it in the box, you could set a new serve speed record. Even if you dink serve it, what return could get by you?

Being Spiderman could help you a lot I suppose. Super fast reflexes, you could always be in great position with ease, the trick would be making it seem like you're putting effort into it.

Remember when Spidey fought Flash as Peter Parker and he could see his punches coming at him in slow motion? That's what the tennis would look like to you, but you'd be even faster than Spidey if you chose SHS.

If you had superhuman speed couldn't you go into girl's locker rooms disguised and then be able to run away from the cops, etc?

Do I turn uninvisible once I touch a girl's skirt?

No, it's invisibility for the rest of your life. You can't turn back to visible flesh. Don't get hit by any cars!

Wait a second..... if I was invisible wouldn't the cars go through me? Like couldn't I go through walls? Like the invisible woman? What's the catch here.

Nope. Just invisible as in nobody could see you. You could be killed just as easily as before.

So if I am invisible and play a tennis match.... I could catch the ball and drop it over the net (or throw it at an extreme angle) and win every point....right?

No, because your racquet isn't invisible. And you HAVE TO hit it with your racquet. This is not basketball! :D

There is no need to fly on low volleys.

Well I could catch the ball, hold it against my racquet, then create suspense and pretend like I am charging up for a kamehameha, and then swing and throw the ball! Alright right now I want to see Invisible Man vs. Super Human Speed.

I'll add my own:

telekinesis/ability to control rackets.

You COULD always use it to have the opponent just miss, or have them smash themselves silly with it, run into a wall by pulling the racket towards it, etc.

It's all about innovation, guys.
