    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.

    Case and Point…Nalbandian is fat

    idj49


    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 ?;)

    I hate to add to this thread, but if you guys wanna talk about overweight tennis players how about Marion Bartoli... now there's a chunky lady! And unlike with Serena, you simply cannot argue that this girl's extra weight is muscle and not fat.

    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."

    If you think Nalbandian is fat, check out the women players on the college teams. These are some hard-hitting heifers! Anyone willing to post a pic?

    He makes Fat Dave look svelt. And I think it had to be John Barrett who said Labadze had "child bearing hips".

    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.

    Nalbandian and Kuznetsova should hook up and have a baby. It would be the new generation of tennis/sumo athlete.

    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.

    No one would be able to see the speedo, it would be lost somewhere in his gut and butt.

    Yep - Labadze is the guy who likes to smoke marijuana, and we all know what happens to people who smoke marijuana. 7/11, here I come! "heeeyyy, maaannnn, do you have any more of these little, twinkies, yeah that's it"

    i'm sure nalby has no trouble scoring the beautiful babes, whatever we think of his 'look'.

    i'll say this, americans have redefined "fat" . . . so it's best not to throw stones.

    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.

    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.
