23 minutes is not actually that bad for an athletic adult male that doesn't train specifically long distance runs. In fact as much in awe some people seem to be of ATP players long distance running capabilities, I would say you actually could probably beat or at least stay even with some guys in the top 100- Isner, Querrey, Tomic to name a few. Most of these tennis players probably never even run a 5k race. If you just told them to run one without any preparation some of them would either go out to fast and run out of gas the last 2k or they would jog the whole way and end up with a time over 30 minutes.
