    Robot will win, especially if it has guns attached to it.

    how does a robot acquire the title "fastest robot in the world", was there some sort of race between them?
    many other companies also claim their robot is fastest in the world

    I'm going to say "man", but barely.

    Ideally it would be one that takes the least amount of time to trace an arbitrary complex route (or set of routes) with its tool ("end effector") within set tolerances. But in reality you can probably define it any way you like and attach a ton of disclaimers at the bottom. Remember the CPU "speed" comparisons?

    It is all well and good having robots like that, supercomputers to beat me at chess and more besides. What about something you can build at home?

    So he will just hit the ball so it bounces over the robot's reach.

    I'll say Man will win, because he can adapt to the Robot's behavior.
    Robot is programmed to always react the same way to the same situation. But it will depend how well it's programmed.
