What's up with nadal's legs?
 


this was taken from a practice yesterday (1/30/13). Is it me or are they ridiculously skinny? he doesn't look very fit

brettsticker86 01-31-2013 11:30 AM



here's another, he looks much more slender...

Nadal's legs have little to do with winning RolandGarros. Nadal beat Djokovic in the final of RolandGarros2012, including holding 71 of 72 service games, practically on one leg. And the best Djokovic could muster was taking a set off of Nadal in the worst playing conditions in world history. Nadal can win RolandGarros no matter what his legs look like. RolandGarros2013 is shaping up to be the most exciting slam of 2013. :-P

Damn! His quads look small. Must finally be clean.

Did you also seem him running as fast as ever using only one leg? Which one was it that he jumped around on, slided and turned for the entire tournament - without ever letting the other foot as much as touch the ground?
He's a hero indeed...

Have you seen Nole's legs? His legs beeing skinny means nothing - remember he wasn't training for a long time, that could explain it. ;)

People, please ignore ********* and his multiple personalities. By responding to him, you allow him to take over an entire thread, and give him exactly what he wants.

that's alright, technology can be a pain in the butt! Hmm it's hard to tell from pics, but seeing as he had to rest for along time i wouldn't be surprised if he lost a bit of muscle on his legs

Someone should dig up a similar shot from before his latest injury for comparison.

There's a photo of him at the airport on some thread or another, and he looks bulky and strong in his street clothes.

brettsticker86 01-31-2013 11:48 AM

true, but nole's legs are well defined and quite ripped, nadal's leg here looks like it just got out of a cast or something!

could you share? it could have just been the angle of the photo as to why his leg looked so small

Towser83 01-31-2013 11:49 AM

ivan_the_terrible 01-31-2013 11:50 AM

When will you people stop judging fitness levels, while looking at pictures on the Interwebz?

His legs are as strong as ever.

Cannot comment on his knees, though.

From what I have heard, he cannot either.
