    Isn't grass a faster surface than hard courts? Wasn't Wilmbledon on grass?

    Fastest is Monfils. Nadal and Federer are up there. Coria is still playing so he's up there. Blake still has his speed, although he might have dropped off a bit. Hewitt lost it a few years ago.

    I'd say Monfils, did you see the French open?! Federer lost a set to him out of pure frustration.

    However, Although Monfils could get to shots that even Nadal couldnt reach, Nadal could do more with them.

    I think Ferrer is actually pretty fast, that guy tracks down a lot of balls.

    Bjorn Phau is rapid. Shame he's not got enough game to demonstrate it on the big stage

    after carefully researching, I've come to the conclusion that the fastest is, ME. I'm so fast you don't even see me on court

    Open era: Laver,Rosewall,Nastase,Gerulaitis,Borg,Connors,Mc Enroe,Wilander,Kriek,Lendl later on,Chang,Sampras,Edberg moving vertically,Rafter,Hewitt,Nadal,Federer and Murray to name the quickest
