Both Sam and Dementieva seem to have gained muscle this year. Of course Petrova is a powerhouse too. She's probably stronger than either of them.

Can you say "performance-enhancing drugs"? Y'all, I know it's a delicate and controversial subject but it's time people got their heads out of the sand...

And on a different subject, why is "Buff" in the thread title capitalized and in quotation marks?

^^ Yeah, because I'm sure they've all found a way to avoid returning ANY positive results with all the strict testing that is done nowadays.

And action shots are always misleading...

As long as it's not effecting them negatively (Jankovic), then I think it's fine for the players to have strong muscles.

Every player looks massive hitting double-handed backhand.
Anyway I wish I had her arms. Jealous.

Serena does not have attractive legs by any means. What are you looking at?

Re: Is Sam Stosur the most "Buff" player on tour?

Well having seen Mauresmo, Petrova, sam and Elena up close and live, I can say Sam certainly is one very muscular girl indeed, very stocky and strong.

However, Petrova is just tall and rather soft, quite weak forearms and not very defined legs at all, not for a pro tennis player, Mauresmo is not as big as people think, her shoulders are very square and she walks with a "John wayne" swagger but shes not that huge, more toned and fit really.

Lena D has to be seen to be believed, shes much taller than Sam and has much longer limbs so doesnt look perhaps as blocky, but my god shes powerful, theres not a ounce of fat anywhere, shes got a six pack and her legs are utterly masssive, muscular but not overly wide shoulders and very strong arms with large long muscles.

I would therefore say she may actually be stronger than the lot of them, she has tremendous strength, you cant ell that by her Nadalesque winners from being on the run and out wide, but Samy is certainly one buff Girl indeed, and she does have a cute face too when she taks those bloody shades off, nice big eyes.

Re: Is Sam Stosur the most "Buff" player on tour?

Elena in australia was the top of being fit i think. I remember her shirt being drenched in the heat and you could see her sixpack through her shirt.

All-Time-Great

Elena, thank you for all the joy you gave me, you will always remain in my mind.
