Is it me or Golovin's legs are a bit bigger?

Not in a bad way though. She seems so fit and athletic - first time it really strikes me.
Her body is very injury-prone so maybe this is what she needs.

Yes, I too have been monitering her legs over the past few months and they are indeed bulkier. She recently hired Mats Wilander as coach so I think that can be partly attributed to her recent success.

I think Tati's gotten slimmer, but has bulked up her lower body too. I think she looks damn hot tonight, so good haha.

Re: Is it me or Golovin's legs are a bit bigger?

You might say she has the beginnings of a 'spare tire'. Might just be what she's wearing. Jankovic has a much flatter stomach though.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Re: Is it me or Golovin's legs are a bit bigger?

she is definitely competing with Kuznetsova for the title of biggest trunks. They both have some serious wheels on them

When you believe, somehow you will. You will, when you believe.

Your mind will take you far. The rest is just pure heart. You’ll find your fate is all your own creation.

There’s so much strength in all of us, every woman, child, and man.
It’s the moment that you think you can’t - you’ll discover that you CAN.

Re: Is it me or Golovin's legs are a bit bigger?

I noticed the same thing this week, immediately. Her calves look huge and so strong. Girl's been working out. I think having Wilander as coach is going to be a great development in Tati's career and it may already be showing in her improved fitness.

She's always had the thicker body type.

Re: Is it me or Golovin's legs are a bit bigger?

She needs to work hard on her movement and patience,Jelena didnt impress me at all and I dont think she will win the Open all she does is wait for errors and her serve is sorta weak.Tatiana showed the glaring weakness that most russian women tennis players have,lack of killer instinct.

She definitely had one like a year ago, but she is probably the fittest she's been since 2004 at the moment

Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson

Re: Is it me or Golovin's legs are a bit bigger?

Golovin said that Wilander would help her to get out of the "just try to hit it harder" mindset and into thinking on the court. Tonight in the third set, she proved she needs to spend some time with him before the Open.

My Favourites: Dancevic, Hantuchova, Gasquet, Golovin, Roddick, Sharapova, Stepanek

i like her legs - not stick thin like some of the other players. she looks healthy like she exercises and eats decently.

I agree she looked great.

She does look a bit slimmer... I definitely noticed that. Maybe the Lacoste polos made her look bigger... who knows? She still has knobby knees though...
