Nadal less muscular this season?

Is it just me or does Rafael have less muscles than last year? I think he is quite a lot slimmer than last year and not as impressive as he used to be (still way above the others though).

What do you think?

He probably has a girlfriend now which would result in less whacking off...

Re: Nadal less muscular this season?

If I recall correctly, I think that he and his camp wanted him to lose some weight because less weight may make him less prone to injuries.

He does look a little slimmer- although his left bicep is still nuts when it is flexed.

I like a lot of players.

Yes, they told that.
I wouldn't say he's a LOT slimmer but he's lost some weight yes. His arms look just fine now.

You shouldn't be eating pork young man

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Your enthusiasm for mr. Piggy is cute but is it possible to limit your pig & bacon drooling comments to the thread started for it? It is your thread, isn't it?
You even polluted the oaf/loaf thread with them.

He didn't pollute my thread, RonE loves to mix different kinds of meat into his receipes.
