who benches more, Serena or Fed?
 
Serena is looking . . . what is the word I'm looking for . . . massive.

According to Roddick she was bench pressing dump trucks as a junior :)

Serena could probably bench press Fed himself using only one arm.

The word some people are using is STEROIDS. Of course the WTA will never speak about it since without Serena you have at best a ho hum tour.

I'm leaning towards Serena just being a genetic oddity/anomaly etc; theres no way the WTA would or could let such an obvious case (in terms of aesthetics) go under the radar.

Most likely she's just blessed physically (strength wise)...

I'm not sure either of them could bench their own bodyweight.

I agree, but I always want to believe! After her clot and hematomas from clot meds, I just don't see her risking her health with roids. Prior to clot, maybe....but she was a burly child and some women really can put on muscle easily.

Fed probably benches 150. Serena could bench press Fed while he benches 150.

fed has a relatively big chest for a stick, so don't count homeboy out. i doubt he could bench dump trucks, but it seems he could be capable of benching his weight.

Who the hell cares? In tennis all that really matters is having a loose wrist and generating insane racquet head speed.

Tony48 01-19-2013 06:37 PM

Does Fed bench at all? He has like zero muscle tone.

vandre 01-19-2013 06:41 PM



she'd snap him like a twig but i'd watch even if it was ppv! :twisted:

No way Serena was on roids. If she was, I'm pretty sure Venus would have been too.

Serena's just naturally very well built.

Defcon 01-19-2013 07:13 PM

I'm sure she takes them. She cheats in every other way, why not with drugs. Drugs and donuts, that's the secret I tell ya.

Mike Sams 01-19-2013 07:27 PM

She can build herself up as much as she wants but she'll never have the natural physical strength of a man of equal size. Federer is naturally bigger than Serena. Half a foot taller and much more natural physical strength and bone density. Bigger hands, bigger wrists, just bigger and stronger all around. He doesn't do any real weight lifting nor should he. Put him in a serous weight training routine for 6 months and he'll be benching 250lbs at least.

I dunno - Stosur looks pretty damn big and cut!

Federer has a fairly large chest - at least relative to most of his body. His triceps are quite small, though, but I wouldn't be surprised if he could bench press his body weight. That's hardly an achievement. And most likely he could bench more than Serena.

Half a foot taller? Uh, no...
