View Full Version : Is she stronger?

Jul 14th, 2005, 11:15 PM
I had a stupid argument with my friend about how strong is Maria.When i shook her hand i felt she is very strong for a woman like she can brake my hand if she wants.My friend said to me that eventhough she is a woman she still 7 inches taller than me and she is very muscular so he thinks she is stronger than me.But i said to him that im a man and im stronger.Do you think that a woman can be stronger than a man?
When i stood next to Maria it was very clear that she is bigger than me and that she is more physical but the fact that im a guy maked me think that i need to be stronger.Do you think that the fact that she is more physical than me and the fact that i look so little and tiny next to her makes her stronger than me?

She is a woman and women don't have muscles.

they do. Look at Mauresmo :lol:
Sorry, I think you mean real women, right?

are you serious, women can be stronger than men. and its not how someone looks which decides how strong they are, i'm not the biggest guy around and my mates are much bigger than me but i am stronger than a lot of them. and thats more likely to be because i workout with weights etc more than they do. body size and mass does effect strength ie the bigger you are the more mas you have then strength automatically comes with it, its like a truck vs a car. momentum and such. but if you're a small guy and dont workout much well a professional athlete even if they are a woman could very well be stronger than you since theyre always working on their strength and fitness.

The average female athlete is usually stronger than the average male non-athlete of around the same weight.

she would be strong for a girl but not near as strong as dementiva,williams,davenport or mauresmo.maria needs to work on her strength.but i think if ye had a fight then henrik would win.men just have more muscle mass.and anyway henrik as the irish fighting saying goes;[my siggie

Is she stronger?

YODA: No. Quicker, easier, more seductive.

Do you think that the fact that she is more physical than me and the fact that i look so little and tiny next to her makes her stronger than me?

YODA: Judge me by size, do you? And well you should not. For my ally is the Force - and a powerful ally it is.

she is very muscular
ANDREW: No! One of the main reasons I'm a fan of Maria is that she isn't one of those players built like a tank who generate blunt, muscular power - Maria generates sharp, flairsome power, through soft hands and timing rather than muscle.

dudes there is a thread for this talk now!

I found an article that say that her serve is 115 mph!!! My serve when i play tennis is about 70 mph. http://www.exhite.com/forum/showthread.php?p=3119#post3119 Do you realize the difference between the power in our hand?? Can someone answer how a woman can be so strong?

You know how her weight is always listed as 130?

Kilos, not pounds. Her muscles (which weigh more than fat) are so finely sculpted that she looks much thinner than 312 pounds. (130 kilos)

hey, her wght is listed as 130 lbs not kilos, coz if it's in kilos, she would look like a wrestler. (no offence intended), btw, that 130lbs is not accurate now, that would make maria aunderweight for her 6'2 height, i hope those in the wtatour site get thier act together and update the player profile correctly...

130 kilos?! :lol:

No I don't thing so, that would mean she was seriously overweight lol

Nov 1st, 2005, 04:13 PM
Maybe you think I am just trying to cover my mistake, but I honestly did not really think she weighs 130 kilos (which is 312 pounds). Not sure I believe she weighs 130 pounds after growing two inches taller, either.

No way Maria is just 130 pounds. But virtually all the players don't bother to notify increases in weight, so the stats on that are useless.

Maria will weigh over 140 pounds at the very least.

Not to mention that she put on a lot of muscle this year, maybe even 150 pounds

Nov 7th, 2005, 10:11 PM
There is no way in the world she is just 140 pounds.When i met her she towers over me in a head and she looked more physical than me and i weight about 160 pounds.If she is bigger than me she must be atleast 160 pounds and you will see.

I wouldnt put Maria at much more than 65kg (143lb) :)

Something like that seems about right :)
