Running is easy, running competitive times in any race requires specific training. Training Specificity says that while training for one thing may improve another, you will never improve as quickly nor to the same maximum degree as someone who focuses. Also it is interesting to note that the top high school times of today are better than the olympic times run in the 1950s and 60s training protocols in high school more closely resemble professional runners. Goober is probably right, the top runners would beat most if not all of the tennis players.
