Did you never see Borg? Serious discrepancy between right and left, although maybe it was more in the shoulder area than in the upper arm. And the T-shirts back then didn't hide it.

Re: AO R4 : Federer beats Raonic 6-4 7-6(4) 6-2

honestly looking at everyone's form I think Roger's looking the best and most likely for the title! I know the bookies will never change the odds to his favor next to Murray or Djokovic but personally I think he's been looking fresh, good movement, good feel, confidence, wearing pink, Roger's got it goin on so far this tournament

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Stan Wawrinka <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Yup, this is Roger's tournament to lose; he's looking much better than the two other clowns.

Most extreme was Laver's huge left arm. Arthur Ashe called Laver's left forearm "a two by four with freckles". In the seventies there was an Esquire Magazine article about Laver which included a full two-page life size photograph of that monster forearm.

Why I dont like him? Because he is arrogant prick. Great tennis player - but arrogant prick.

I will never forgive him his statements about Djokovic when he was really young.
I don't think Federer was the player who said that Novak resembles a misshapened corpse.

Just got done watching the highlights. Another masterclass by the master. He has been looking lethal and Clownga stands very little chance.

It's not that strange really. He gets a lot of heavy training on his right arm only. It is quite possible to compensate in the gym, if you want to look more balanced, but obviously not obligatory.

I never had a doubt about this match. Roger is looking good!
