It is ridiculous that people claim that Djokovic/Nadal-like speed has never been seen in tennis before...
Agassi was no slouch himself in the foot-speed department. Many have remarked that he was, at times, nearly as fast as speed/agility demon, Michael Chang. Other speed demons of the past include Borg, Hewitt, Blake, Federer and Davydenko.

Of the current crop of speedsters, you should also include Monfils, Murray, and Björn Phau.
