he hit one forehand winner, and they showed a slo-mo replay of him hitting it, and his shirt rose up as he hit the shot and his belly was just huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugggggggee!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's unbelievable, he's far more overweight than serena.

What are you confused about? Serena is villified on here at least once a week about her appearance. Meanwhile Nalbandian has been going on court with what amounts to a beer gut for at least a year and no one says anything about it.

I knew exactly what u meant, but I didn't know ur thoughts on him being overweight.

With that being said I remember there were a thread talking about Federer and him being over weight which was just sad nit picking.

But watching Nalbandian play, he is CLEARLY fat and not winning anything by the way.

Serena I guess gets criticized for her weight because that’s the only thing to pick on.

serena wouldnt get criticized as much if she didnt wear such hideous clothing, what do you expect when your that big and walk out on court in a skin tight jumper. plus its alot harder to tell with nalbandian, its not like he wears tube tops when he plays

Should we count how many Nalbandian fat posts there are vs. Serena is fat ones? ;) You and I both know which one will win. Even when Serena is as fit as she can be she still gets called fat. She is constantly criticized on how big her legs, butt, breasts are all of which are genetically predisposed to be larger. Nalbandian has a huge stomach that can be helped and there is hardly a mention of it.

I am glad he is, to me he is an inspiration, you can play good tennis and you can have a belly. Good for him. Better to have a belly like his, than to be so small minded.

There have been a ton of Fat Dave threads on this board and every other tennis board, not to mention that every time he plays the comms go on and on about his weight and how he like to get into the donuts. As someone who' has seen him in person a ton of times, I'll admit he has a tummy, but he is far from fat.

He enjoys the good life much like most south americans do. I don't blame him, he has the money, women, fame, what else can you ask for?? Perhaps a better term for him would be, the Fastest Athlete with the most body fat, maybe he can make it into Ripley's believe it or not ?;)

Davydenko about Naldandian;

The more match play Nalbandian gets, the more dangerous he is, says Davydenko.

"He plays better and better; it's tougher to stop him every round, because he's feeling more confident," the Russian stated. "It's different for me to play against Monfils or Nalbandian; against Nalbandian I have a little more pressure."

No serena gets picked on because she acts like she isnt fat and wears revealing clothes. When nalbandian shows up in a speedo we will let him know he is too big for that, much like we do serena.

This is Labadze. He's actually a very talented and powerful lefty player, but his work ethic makes Safin look like Hewitt. If he trained really hard he could be top 20 easy.

Also would add, that Serena could, if she had been healthy and treated tennis as a serious career, been the greatest women's player. I don't care about how she looks; but I do not doubt the impact her weight had as she missed several parts of the year w/ knee and joint injuries. It almost seems like she's wasted the opportunity.

With Nalbandian, I think he's peaked and I don't see him doing much better 10lbs lighter nor do I see him losing 5 setters b/c he's cramped or not able to compete.

Well whatever the size of that beer gut is he can play some good tennis. Now if he put himself through a strong training regimen and totally dedicate himself to the sport he could've won a slam by now and probably be a top 3 player. But I guess that won't happen.

Serena I guess gets criticized for her weight because that’s the only thing to pick on.A) Nalbandian has and is being taken down for having a gut. That's what this thread is for, for instance.
B) Serena Williams makes no effort to dress in a way that would minimize her girth. Indeed she seems to advertise it, judging by her outfits. And there are plenty of things to criticize Williams for besides her weight.
People gripe about her detractors but she also has a lot of people jumping in to defend her too. The knife cuts both ways.

What shocks me with Nalbandian is that he consistently plays long grinding matches...and wins in part because he's the fitter player. No doubt he'd be even fitter if he were 15lbs less, but Monfils was the one who looked tired yesterday...Nalby's older, fatter, has been injured this year and Gael is the one who looked tired.

^^^ Yes, it is amazing, but if you look carefully he seems to be always in control of the point and he is not the one running from corner to corner, he manage the match that way, excellent anticipation and superb control of the point and he is not as slow as he seems to be, watch his feet.

I am starting to like Nalbandian. And in terms of fat, some people, just can't be thin, unless they don't eat. He is probably as fit or fitter than some guys who have NO fat. But, lets face it, he probably wishes he had a washboard.

Kobble
06-02-2007, 06:24 AM
Nalbandian is obviously fit to be able to do what he does. Gilbert said he saw him doing standing backflips on court. So, backflips, wins many five setters. That sounds like a fit guy to me.

As for Baggy, no joke, I saw a guy who looked just like him, and acted like him(kind of easy going with a good sense of humor). He also had one heck of a beautiful girlfriend. People who think it is about being a big name tennis star, I don't think so. People, including women, just like to be around that kind of personality.
