Biggest arm size difference in Open Era

We talk a lot of Nadal's arms, but it's more Nadal's left arm that is big !!
Laver used to have trunk instead of his left forearm. However, lefties are not especially prone to have this difference in size, as Mc said he was the only one in his period to have arms of the same size. Do you have other examples of big arm differences ?

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Re: Biggest arm size difference in Open Era

I just watched Nadal 3 times at the NASDAQ and did not see much difference. Not strictly ATP, but I think Navratilova's playing arm was huge, veins like ropes.

Re: Biggest arm size difference in Open Era

in that pic both of Lavers forearms look like monsters

I read an old book that compared the size of his forearm/wrist with that of some heavyweight champs, crazy stuff

Sorry Auscon but the left one is pretty scary, with the veins and stuff... good teasing for the rest of the body when he meets some chicks...

Re: Biggest arm size difference in Open Era

Roger Federer definately. He doesn't even use his left arm and it looks so skinny and puny compared to the right arm.

Re: Biggest arm size difference in Open Era

Nadal is ripped, David is also, err, well his biceps and legs . Heck, everyone on the ATP is pretty ripped in the arms at least.

DAVID NALBANDIAN = THE BEST

The difference between Laver's left and right arms.
