Is Nadal Basically an Arnold Schwarzenegger with Top Spin Forhand?
 
There is no doubt the biceps are essential for that heavy topspin FH. If Arnold had pursued tennis instead of acting he would have something to say on clay, no?

If he plays tennis as badly as he acts........I don't know..

Sure is. He probably could have even won the Mr. Universe contest as well. Here's Nadal when he's good and pumped up:



Unbelievable likeness, no?

Arnold has the most photographed biceps in the world.



Undisputed King of Bodybuilding trumps Undisputed King of clay.

All I can say about Arnold is he would not make it pass his first drug test.

That's Lou Ferringo. :)

He still provides the voice for the Hulk in the Marvel movies.

Question is, is Nadal a Cyberdyne Systems model T101?

"Listen, and understand! That Terminator is out there! It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead." - Kyle Reese.

I guess Nadal is a bit like that on the clay. :twisted:

Yes, you are correct. This happened at the time of Mr Olympia shows of the mid 70s, when the classic Pumping Iron film was being made, and body building was going mainstream. Arnie auditioned, but was denied due to be short.

Interestingly, it was during an sit down interview with Lou Ferringo, and a certain Terry Bollea, that lead to everyone saying that Terry Bollea made Lou look small...Terry Bollea was told that he was the real hulk. Terry Bollea went onto to become Hulk Hogan, arguably the biggest name in pro wrestling history.
