"slimmer"

Has an exhibition in around a week against Berdych as well, should tell us a lot if he plays well.

So this is why Krispy Kreme Donuts encountered severe financial difficulties.

In all seriousness good to see him in shape and it would be great to see him do well at the AO with all his supporters behind him.

Baker (USA) - Bedene (SLO) - Bellucci (BRA) - Berta (SWE) - Cuevas (URU) - Domijan (USA) - Ebden (AUS) - Estrella (DOM) - Grigelis (LTU) - Guccione (AUS) - Heliovaara (FIN) - Kavcic (SLO) - King (BAH) - Kontinen (FIN) - Kubler (AUS) - Lajovic (SRB) - Matosevic (AUS) - McGee (IRE) - Millman (AUS) - Mitchell (AUS) - Nielsen (DEN) - Nieminen (FIN) - Paire (FRA) - Udomchoke (THA)

86kg at 6'0? :-) That's about the same as Soderling, who's 6'3 or 6'4, and heavily built with it.

Good. Should definitely pay off for him, especially in Australia.

I did a BMI calculation and 6'0, 180 lbs comes out to 24.4 (the high end of 'normal weight'). Probably has a few more pounds to shed, though I plugged in Fed, cheater and Roddick just for kicks and they all come out about the same - Roddick actually came out at 25 which is considered (just barely) overweight.

BMI should be taken with a pinch of salt for high-performance athletes because they generally have higher muscle mass than an average person. As muscle is denser than fat, it skews the healthy range up a bit.

Re: Slimmer, Faster, Stronger Baghdatis Ready For 2011

He's very dangerous, considering he already was able to make a slam final, and now going to be better physically. Mentally will always be the deciding factor though, but fitness helps the mind to an extent.

Marcos is a worker, and he already made to the AO final, being fit and slimer will only improve his results.
Richard would never do that, physical training, body fitness and such. Too much work for lazy-Ritchie, better keep his bretzel-breadth

FFS, I didn't think anyone but richie21/yuri is compelled to mention Gasquet in every post no matter what the topic, but there's actually two such people in the world. I'm a fan, but I cringe every time and it doesn't really matter whether it's in a positive or negative context either. Shut the fuck up about him when it has nothing to do with the topic. While you're at it, shut the fuck up with your obsession with Monfils and Tsonga too.

That BMI is crap anyways.. I have 186cm and 92kg but going to gym and training regulary, even six pack is little there xD And according to BMI i'm overweight, yeah right

This is good for Marcos, hope he can get in top10 in 2011.
