    So I was walking by one the training courts in Toronto and saw Nadal rallying with someone. Interested in finding who that someone was, I took a quick glimpse over to the other side while Nadal was talking to his coach. I saw these two guys talking to each other. One of them had his shirt off. This guy looked flatulent. No muscle definition whatsoever and a slight beer belly. They started rallying again. Indeed the shirtless guy was Nadal's hitting partner. It was then that I FINALLY realized who it was. David Nalbandian! I was in utter disbelief. From watching on TV with his shirt one, this guy always looked like a ball of muscle. With his shirt off he didn't even look like a tennis player! Every other player I saw had some serious muscle definition.

    WOW is all I have to say.

    Btw, what the hell is up with Nadal's abs? They're freakishly large. It looks hideous. They reach further out than his pectorial muscles.

    lol i neeeeeeeeeeeed rafa's abs, and i wouldnt mind his game either hehe. but it does seem that nalbandian considerably gained some pounds since last year. The same can be said with Fish. If you compare Fish from last years cincy finals, and now...WOW what happened?

    Glad you weren't talking about Nadal there -- he seems to be in pretty good shape, so to speak. Maybe we know why Nalbandian withdrew from Cincy -- he knew he couldn't beat Rafa. :lol:

    We've been getting tons of photos of Rafa practicing in Toronto. No photos of Nalbandian.

    Okay, I see a marketing opp here.

    If you want to see the Nadal Toronto photos, they are at:

    As for his abs and such, here are a few photos, taken by fans in Toronto:




    Actually, the last one is from Stuttgart.

    And as someone on our site just posted, "It's so hard to believe there's an 18 year old boy in that body . . ." :lol:

    Nalbandian has always looked and acted like a fart.

    You must have missed Nalbandian, the walking tomato, at the French Open this year. A few more pounds and he'll be rolling out there.
