    Nadal's biceps

    Just out of interest, have Nadal's arms got smaller since he stopped wearing the sleeveless stuff. Compare:

    lol, i was hoping you really weren't looking at Nadal's body. joking. i can appreciate those guns even as a guy. as for your question - i don't think those photos are comparable. Nadal probably doesnt have the muscle he had a year ago just because he's not training and/or playing tournaments like he did. He'll be back.

    Different zoom, he's flexing in the one pic, and it also looks like he was playing in the first and posing in the second. Your arms get a lot more pumped when you're playing.
    He probably has lost some muscle mass though but the pics aren't really comparable.

    His guns are always fine ..
    Lol, I actually like him when he's slightly less..huge, too much muscle is grotesque..
    Still, after the Gypsy video with Shakira, I like Nadal more..

    I think Verdasco now has the title of most ripped tennis player

    Mike Russel looks like he's a bodybuilder.

    He is pretty hench. I had never seen him before Murray's match. I reckon about as strong as Verdasco (but then, Verdasco's a better player). What do you think?

    But it's safe to say this guy tops them all!!: http://i32.tinypic.com/k3r4w7.jpg

    I doubt any of them do really heavy lifting, it's just impractical for tennis. All of the guys should be pretty ripped seeing that they're mostly 6' and up and less than 200 lbs and are professional athletes.
