You get the idea. I'm more or less starting to look like a young, right handed Rod Laver.

not me b/c I am pretty much ambidextrous. I write lefty but play tennis righty. Its really funny when I guy puts a shot down the left line I switch racket to the left hand and hit a true forehand - lol. ITs enjoyable. If only I could serve good with my left hand, it'd be so much stronger.

From tennis? I thought it was from spinach.

Yeah, my right arm in general is much bigger than my left -_-; I'm not sure if it's the same with all of you guys, but my right is also longer from the elbow to fingertips; same with my friend who plays tennis.

the veins on my right forearm are ridiculous. thats what happens when you strength train and play tennis.

I guess Im luckier as I built up a lot of forearm size and strength playing cricket. Having to constantly lift and swing a 3.2lb (50 ounces I think) bat for 3+ hours really does wonders for your forearms LOL. But it balances it out nicely. Also makes a 13 ounce racquet swing like a toothpick.
