Has anybody else noticed that his left arm is scrawny and less toned that the other one. Is this hereditary or is it because its the only hand he uses for him tennis game?

he probably lifts light weights with both of them like most tennis players but when he hits... and he hits a hard heavy ball, hit right arm just gets much bigger...

I'm sure he isn't the only player with one arm slightly bigger than the other (and we're not talking Laver proportions;)).

Monica Seles won't have that problem. :tape:

monica seles has HUGE arms... loom at some of her pictures when shes hitting the ball... it's like :eek: where the hell did that come from??? seriously... she'd underrated for muscular build on the women's tour.

this is true of all tennis players. i am not a pro but my right (dominant) hand is slightly larger and more toned than my left. besides, a decent "popeye" is the mark of a serious tennis player...;)

All players with one handed backhands have a big difference between both arms as they dont use their left arm. Sampras used to have a huge right arm but a normal left arm too.
