With a game like American foot(?)ball which asks for little special qualities other than being a great athlete, it's very different. What do you think is more special about Federer and Nadal?

1) the way they can hit a forehand?
2) their 40 yard dash, squat, deadlift, benchpress or vertical jump?


My whole point is that tennis, just like actual football is way more about skill than about athleticism. Skill you don't learn at age 20, you just don't.

There's a lot that can be improved in terms of fitness and strength, but some things you'll never learn after your 8th birthday. It's almost like selecting the next Mozart solely on fingerlength and flexibility or something.

It can very well be that they do it that way in AF, I don't know much about AF, but I think in tennis things are very different.



Exactly.
What does that mean?
