Muscle-bound

Most of the competitors on the WTA Tour these days spend time in the gym, building up their strength, as it's such a physical sport these days. Would anyone like to suggest which of the currently active Tour players have the most muscular physique? Obviously there are people like Serena and Amelie, but are there any lesser well known players who are more muscle-bound?

One day this week on the UK version of "The Weakest Link" I saw a lady contestant who had huge bulging muscles on her arms and shoulders, and she was dressed such that we could admire her, rightly proud to show off her amazing physique. Unfortunately she happened to get 'voted off' in the first round.

Definetely, she is alot more toned now than when she was younger, she looks like a 400m runner than a 100m sprinter.

Yeah, she is well toned and not as muscley as she used to be, I read some interview where she said it was a conscious decision to lose muscle mass as she thought she would be faster on court. I think she looks really good now but maybe a tad too skinny

close your eyes and believe

I think you are right, but cause of the Belgians and the Williams sisters as she felt they could move faster than her around the court, but I like her toned look she not only is a great tennis player but looks like a great athlete who could be in other events at the olympics.
