Put in order of who you think is strongest.

Safin is a guy I wouldn't want to be in a fight with. Nadal and Monfils should be mentioned too.

Muscle tissue does not equal strength, I know body builders who cannot lift as much as regular gym members who do strength training. Tennis player with the most impressive physice is Canas, he has excellent lats, chest, ab and oblique muscles.

You cannot tell who is "the strongest" from just a view of their body, somebody may be built like Ronnie Coleman (in my avatar) and not be able to lift as much as a man who appears much smaller.

In this case, either Safin or Roddick, they clearly have a larger natural frame than both Dancevic and Djokovic.

Besides Tsonga, Andy's the biggest guy regarding his height:weight ratio. But I'm not sure if that translates to strength.

His strength may have faded a bit, but I would still put Safin ahead in an arm-wrestle.

no that is not true,Philippoussis is way bigger, Calleri has a bigger Kilo per centimeter measure, and so on with many other players.
I meant to say on this list, Andy's the biggest guy.

As far as physical strength I would say Safin then Nadal. Djokovic is near the bottom I don't know why he is in the poll.

I thought Safin was strongest. Djokovic may be a mistake, but don't count off Dancevic

I honestly used to be impressed with Nalbandian's back and torso, which seems huge now that he's fitter...
Moya's looks pretty strong, so does Rainier Sch.

Frank seems like the strong type :hearts:

Marat is really wirey of late, Andy is average and Novak doesn't deserve a place in this poll.

I'm just wondering what criteria were used. Are these the only four men, out of the possible choices, that fit the so-called criteria? In any case, no one.....

Let's just say, I wouldn't want to try to win a wrestling match with any of these guys. Because I'm just as tall as Henin, and I'm a girl. But I'd do it for fun. :p

Djokovic- a mistake
Roddick- He always claims he has the "breadstick arms," but clearly has some power cuz of that booming serve
Safin- I would say is strongest
Dancevic- Why do many people not think so???

As for others, of course Monfils, Cañas, etc...
Perhaps I will include them in a later poll, I just wanted to see out of these 4 players :)
