OMG .. :eek:

I know he has a one-handed backhand but his left arm looks like Hantuchova's arm ...

I've seen another players with great diferences betwen arms, but isn't it too thin for a man?

At that picture, yes, his arm looks thin, but not to the extreme of Hantuchova, that's really pretty pretty creepy. :o

Doesn't he pump both of his hands in the gym?! It is surpising that gym workout doesn't reduce the difference.

Does anyone remember a big serving yugoslav player from the late 80's. Don't remember his name, it ended with -ic :rolleyes: . I think he was a lefty. He had an even bigger difference between his serving arm and the other.

Was it Zivojinovic? He was not a lefty. The only lefty I know is Ivanisevic.
Anyway, Zivo was the opponent Mac faced the day he had his famous postal moment with the aforementioned Richard Ings in the "Best Umpire" thread....

Justine has difference between her arm as well :o
Because of a one handed backhand I guess ;)

I don't know but he seems a little bit skinny. Anyway, he's playing good.

Good luck to him in AO finals (To be honest, i like Marat too and i'll be a little bit happier if Marat wins).

i've always noticed that a little bit-- but that pic really makes it look weird... perhaps a bad pic...

these are less scary ones where the difference isn't quite as large

well bad picture or not, Federer was never a bulky player, and i doubt it he'll ever become one. he was always rather thin

well Roger's game doesn't rely on brute strength and athleticism such as someone like Andre or Nalbandian or Hewitt or whatever, he doesn't have to have the same big muscles lol

his one chest must also look and be weaker than his other because of the only one hand he uses.
he looks really fragile, but he is an amazing athlete.

So long he wins, I'm not worried! So true, the kind of game of tennis he plays doesn't requires him to be big muscled man!

... and as long as he stays healthy and fit, his left arm is no big deal. He only uses it to pick the tennis balls out of his pocket and toss them before serving.

Yeah. That's the guy. Thanks. :)

Did somebody doctor that pic of Rogi because that is just too *freaky*! :scared:

And I thought Gonzo's arms were bad. Eeewww!

I had alwasy thought Roger was handsome in his own weird way, but it definitely had nothing to do with his arms.

He is not your typical pretty boy, but there is something about him.

his left arm DOES looks ominously hantuchova-style

still the same?

ae wowww
02-17-2005, 09:54 AM
I think in this pic, its because he's serving, when he jumps all his weight is kind of stretched, so while he's in that position it does look smaller.

He likes his left arm with a thin beam and the armhairs strung up around 2 lbs

No, and he even does push-ups and bench press just right handed.

his arm is way too skinny...its odd he doesnt seem to do any bicep curls in the gym at least to try and bulk it up just a bit....

He'd need to to forearm curls too. Those are a bitch.

hm. also the fact that he has ridiculously broad shoulders makes his arm look even thinner.

You're right his arms are thinner and wrists smaller than most tennis players. Maybe his technique is easier on the arms.
