Who has the biggest (size) disparity in their forearms?

It would probably be someone with a one-handed backhand. I don’t think Federer has ever worked out his left arm in his life. Sampras was a freak show as well. Anyone else come to mind? This thread is admittedly inane, but I’d still appreciate your input.

Re: Who has the biggest (size) disparity in their forearms?

I wouldn't say Nadal since both of his arms are massive.

I have noticed that Ferrer has a large *disparity* in his forearms.

Re: Who has the biggest (size) disparity in their forearms?

Roddick, freakishly uneven a few years ago, but they seem to be getting a little closer in size lately.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

I like this thread. I've played about once a week for 15 years, and I've even got a tiny difference in forearm muscle.

Not sure about now, but Vilas was renowned for the difference in the size of his forearms.

Re: Who has the biggest (size) disparity in their forearms?

Nadal when I saw him in Shanghai. Big disparity between his arms, although both are muscled. But surprisingly, his muscles aren't that obscenely big as they are on TV. He's quite lanky. But in a good way, of course.
