Which would you rather be? I'm not talking about super powers like the flash or spiderman, but I mean run just a little faster than Ben Johnson in his prime or able to jump a little higher than Javier Sotomayor in his prime but with the ability to do it off of one and two feet. Personally, I'd pick the highest leaper because being fast is nice, but jumping extremely high is even better.

would you rather be faster than Ben? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCh5QswxQ6k)

or jump higher than Javier? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4yhE5KEPq0)

Run faster because there is a lot more use to it than being able to jump high.

Just watched this video of Maurice Green. And they call tennis players arrogant and classless...

Only if you're a petty thief.

Speed is more important for tennis, so I'd rather run really fast. Though, the ability to jump 4 feet in the air would help my net game. :)

being able to outrun anyone would be a sweet asset.

What about dunking over someone or jumping over a high fence?

Run to any ball on the court.

Can you only sustain the speed for a short time like the sprinters or can you keep going for longer?

Endurance is not part of the package.
