    The tennis community cares about Nadal's leg or arm more than they care about Federer's entire career.

    Right because all you creepy Nadal stalkers represent the entire tennis community.

    Right, so we've debunked the myth that his legs have shrivelled.

    How about these?

    Look its a known fact that a person will have sudden and dramatic muscle loss when taken of PEZ ;)

    Nadals leg looks ok to me. I have notoriously skinny chicken legs so I am not gonna start hatin on Nadal.

    Nadal started wearing sleeves in January 2009:

    It made all the difference. Very hard to judge if there was any muscle loss. But if there was, it helped big time, as he won the Australian Open in 2009, RG, Wimbledon and US Open in 2010.

    and when was that concluded? there were merely opinions, but no conclusions. some people say its thinner, some say they see no difference. I see a big difference in the quad region, i think it's from his long injury layoff

    so why hasn't he won any tournaments off-clay since 2010? (I'd say it's because he met his match in the pod-using, gluten-free Djoker).

    and I have to say, look at those guns....

    ...and this was at the USO in 2010. After you claim he slimmed down. He may have lost a bit of muscle but that's no proof that he was no longer on PEDs.

    Didn't he have a stomach virus? Those can be vicious.

    Was laid out for 5 days and lost 15lbs. Couldn't even drink much liquid or it would be tossed up.

    I don't care about Nadal as such but if you find those guns to be impressive, you need to be with a man who goes to the gym a little more often. Just sayin...

    If he is really slender that could take some pressure off his knees.

    He is the same. People are being paranoid as usual.

    babolat just posted a picture on their facebook that shows nadal on the courts and he looks the same as ever, maybe a little more thin than usual but not dramatically different.
