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.

Nadal.

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

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

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

Mark's got a chunky and a skinny...

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.

Well done, flip_fan. That picture of Mark is ri-goddamn-diculous.

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

Nadal. It is true, he does not look that big in person, in fact, he is slender and nicely built.

:) even i have a rather big difference in my two arms, i get laughed at it some times :d
You don't really need a single handed backhand, although they usually have huge underarms like corretja and ljubicic

This is obviously an elaborate ploy to start a hot, popular thread and get vcash...

That picture of Federer definitely shows a big disparity. I think the difference between Federer and Philippoussis is that Mark probably works out both arms outside of tennis while Federer probably does not.

As for that earlier post, this was not an attempt to get vCash. I haven't been a MTF member for very long at all and I'm not even sure how that stuff works....

IMO most players have that unless they just work out a lot and use their left arm at least equally much...
I have a bigger right arm than my left arm too, when I just looked at it now...Never noticed it :D

Wow... Richard's is pretty big! I guess the one handed backhand would contribute to the size difference... but yeah, it's quite large.

I agree with the poster above who said Alex Corretja, his arms were just mad.

Vilas's left biceps are much bigger than his right one, it was like that 10 years ago when I met him.

Yup yup :eek:

And Roger's left arm totally freaks me out; it not only looks small compared to his right arm but it looks like it's dying on the vine, atrophied and withering away from disease. :scared:

Interestingly, not many of the women players show as much such disparity between their arm muscles.

one is more recognizable than the other and none more than roger's freakish arms.
