Federer was taller than Pouille who claims 6-1. my guess is poullie is a bit under. i would no be shocked if Roger was on the upper end of 6-1. 6.1-25 or 6-1.5
Mark(5'9.25 said on 15/Apr/17
probably a solid 6'1". If he fell under it, that would be due to a tennis match.

I always pictured Federer as a textbook example of a 6'1" person.

He may be a weak 6ft1 (184.8), but maybe not a full one (185.4)
Canson said on 10/Apr/17
Could be strong 6'0" (184cm) up to just about 6'1" (185cm). Michael Jordan like Christian said edges him out and Jordan by enough people who have described him when he played 6'4/6'5 or 6'4 and change likely means he's 6'4 1/2-6'4 5/8 at his lowest like he was when drafted

Federer 185-185.5cm to me
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/17
I think a solid 6ft1
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 9/Apr/17
He's over 4 inches shorter next to 194-195 Michael Jordan, so he's not quite 185.
Reece said on 3/Apr/17
i struggle to think Federer is 6-0. i think that 6-1 is accurate. he may have looked shorter because he just played a tennis match because after exersise you are shorter or maybe his posture. Federer under 6-1 i doubt.

I saw Roger Federer up close recently in Indian Wells Anyhow, I met him in person, shook his hand Im 185-186cm, he was definitely slightly shorter than me. Probably closer to 6ft even.
Johnson said on 26/Mar/17
What about Tommy Haas? He is listed 6'2
anon said on 25/Mar/17
Thiem is probably Similar to Nadal, Possible he is just a legit 6'0 could be 183-184cm
Ole183cm said on 21/Mar/17
Rob, i think Federer is the GOAT of Tennis and a true role model,
what about the height of the rising talent Thiem? Atp height 6'1 but what is your height estimate on him? thanks

Editor Rob: he might be shorter than Roger.
Reece said on 18/Mar/17
Federer I think is 6-1.5.
Alan said on 13/Feb/17
Not identical shoes in the final. Same brand, color, etc, but Nadal always wears a thicker sole on court. I would say Federer usually looks about 1 inch taller than Nadal off court.

Dave said on 7/Feb/17
I am pretty sure Nadal wears shoe inserts, I remember from a few years ago he stated this. That's probably why he looked a bit taller than Federer.
varun said on 31/Jan/17
Surprising how Nadal is listed shorter than Federer here. If you watched the Australian open trophy ceremony you can easily see Nadal being one inch taller than him.
Hijopotamus said on 30/Jan/17
Standing beside Nadal at the Australian Open both wearing same shoes Nadal was taller from all angles.
Johnson said on 22/Jan/17
How tall is Mirka Federer? Listed 174, she could be 173
Mark(5'9.25") said on 22/Nov/16
This listing is fine. Federer is more or less 6'1" most of the time.
anon said on 16/Nov/16
His own website has his height down as 6'1 but 186cm so 6'1.25.

I could see Federer measuring 185.5cm so he could be down as 185 or 186cm either way he is pretty much a 6'1 guy for me
Chris297 said on 15/Nov/16
No more than 6"1. Well proportioned and has big hair so can appear taller. Djokovic is definitely about an inch taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Oct/16
187lbs is believable. He looks a little heavier today than he did maybe 10 years ago.
Mark said on 30/Sep/16
In truth, I'm surprised Federer weights 187 lbs considering he looks skinny and tall.
Mark said on 27/Sep/16
Agreed. Federer can pass for a good 6'1" with the picture above!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Sep/16
I'd have thought a fraction over it was possible at times.
Mark said on 22/Sep/16
Oh and Federer holds his own with 7'5"-7'6" Ming Yao.

Mark said on 22/Sep/16
Rob, If you're reading this, can Federer pull off looking like a solid 6'1" in these pictures?

Federer doesn't seem like a man who would drop a fraction under 6'1" regularly when standing at his tallest.
Editor Rob: Close to 6ft 1 but not over it really.
Mark said on 19/Sep/16
And really, Federer's build strikes me as a Honest 6'1". He doesn't pretend to be in the 6'1" range while at worst a fraction under and at max slightly over 6'1".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Sep/16
Rob, do you think Federer falls into the "weak" or "strong" side of 6ft1?
Editor Rob: at times I'd have said a weak, other times an honest 6ft 1, I think roughly 6ft 1 flat is probably as close to the truth as you'll get.
Mark said on 8/Sep/16
Agreed with Johno. Federer always strikes me as being at least a solid 6'1" or in the stronger side of it.
Johno said on 5/Sep/16
6'1 is a good listing for Federer.
Mark said on 2/Sep/16
I'm laughing at Ali and simons comment about Federer being only 6'0" barefoot. If Federer was that short, he wouldn't that much taller than Nadal. Then again, Nadal doesn't have the best posture. Still, Federer stands well with Michael Jordan and is noticeability taller than Bradley Cooper.
Mark said on 28/Aug/16
Rob, could Federer edge out Costner in person or at least give a taller impression?
Editor Rob: he might...having watched a couple of Costner 80's films recently I think about 6ft 1 is ok, but I wouldn't really put him over the mark.

Vlad said on 6/Aug/16
Rob,his parents are very short compared to him,do you think that him playing since young age made him so tall compared to them ?
Editor Rob: certainly doing a sport like that will help maximise growth, maybe in some cases it can even push the body beyond a normal range it is expected to reach genetically.

So are Andy Murray's parents. It's quite common to have average parents and a tall son. There's a lot more variation in genetics than you think and there are other factors which can also account for height.

A perfect example of 6'1. No more, no less. One of the greatest tennis players of all time, and even though I'm a Nadal guy... nothing but respect and admiration for Darth Fed! (He always looked awesome in all black!) As for Arch, yes there does seem to be a lot of 6'4 + guys on tour. Interesting, yet if you look at the most successful tennis players in history, (for males) it has been between the 5'10-6'2 mark. Just this past decade, your top four players are all between 6'0.5-6'2. Who knows, like everything these days, everyone is getting taller, except for me of course! *sigh*
Mark said on 30/Jul/16
Rob, I wouldn't doubt 186 in the morning.
Mark said on 16/Jul/16
A strong 6'1" and possible 6'1.5" in the morning.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jul/16
Rob, likely is 186cm?
Editor Rob: I think roughly 6ft 1 is ok for him

"Seems a big height to be an advantage in terms of groundstroke player/around the court, though obviously an advantage on serve." -I meant disadvantage on around the court!

Arch Stanton on Roger Federer
@Rob Have you noticed that tennis seems to have an unusual number of 6 ft 5-6 players? I've lost count recently how many players I've seen at 6 ft 6, Del Portro, Cilic, Querrey, Vesely, Zverev. All of them do look it when they do close up body shots on the court. The average for a male tennis player now has to be 6 ft 1-2. Almost every other game I seem to watch now there's a 6'5 or 6'6 player in it. Seems a big height to be an advantage in terms of groundstroke player/around the court, though obviously an advantage on serve.
Editor Rob: is it an advantage to be 6ft 5-7? I don't know, 6ft 1-2 might be a perfect height range if Federer and Djokovic are anything to go by.

You'd think too big wouldn't you for court mobility, but I don't think it's a coincidence that a lot of these 6'6 players are making it into the top ranking, perhaps the height with serve and more difficult to pass? You rarely ever see a male player under 6 ft nowadays!
MD said on 5/Jul/16
Height seems to be an advantage as in you'd rather be 6'5" than 5'5", these days (or any time in tennis, really). It seems, though, that if you're talking the elite of the elite (Top 5 or 10 in the world) that there certainly seems to be a point where it becomes a disadvantage compared to average-tall guys (6'0"-6'2").

Agree, he certainly looks more than a flat 185cm. He could be anywhere from 185.5 cm to 186 cm honestly.

What do you think is the height difference between Federer and Isner in this pic?
Don't you think it is more than 9 inches?

Editor Rob: it can look a bit more than 9 inch, but a guy like Isner doesn't have a big head
plus said on 29/Oct/15
Now I see it clearer, Federer is 186 cm definitely. Strong 186 cm. Nadal 185 cm but his posture is not good, that's why he looks shorter. 185 cm was when he was 17 years old or 18
Dan said on 14/Oct/15
His parents are so short, it's funny how he became pretty tall. But yeah 6'1 seems correct.
plus said on 5/Oct/15
I believe Federer, he must be 185,5 cm and Nadal 184,5. De Gea is 190 cm

Rob, how much do you think Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic weigh in a typical match?
[Editor Rob: probably not far off what is on their official websites, except over the course they could lose a couple of pounds.]
MD said on 6/Aug/15
Wow, I can see who he gets those eyebrows from. lol They are a less extreme example than his dad's, but he's definitely his father's son in that regard.

Why not list him 186 cm? He looks identical in height to Sharapova
Goatlips said on 4/Jul/15
Fred (below) is a total hypocrite and idiot - firstly, saying, "Federer is 6ft 1in!!!!", then saying this site is guess work "at best!!!1." Well, no, height not only changes with age, but also throughout a single day.
The ATP possibly measured him for their 185cm stat (6ft and 2cm) - but it doesn't say when he was measured. In the morning before your spine is compressed you'll be taller.
Also, he's 33 now, and no one seems to realised that from the age of 30 (on average) your body starts to die and your height decreases. On average you lose about 1mm in height per year after 30 and that rate doubles to 2mm per year from the age of 70. A professional tennis player is likely to shrink even faster than a sedentary person, due to increased wear on the virtibrae and discs. If the original ATP stat was true, and taken before he was 30, Federer is probably closer to 6ft now than 6ft 1in.
I personally have done hard weight training and ran over 1000 miles from the age of 40 to 43 and my spine is degenerating badly! I've lost 2cm (almost double the normal rate) and gone from 180cm to 178cm.
Tom said on 4/Jul/15
Rob how tall do you think Nick Kyrgios is, listed as 6'4 and does look it.
[Editor Rob: yes he appears in that range.]
sam said on 19/May/15
Federer is the same height as kvitova so he is 6ft 1/2 I think a downgrade maybe to 184cm
pierric said on 23/Feb/15
185 seems perfect !
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Feb/15
Could be 186cm still. Looks tall. I bet that his early morning height is the height Andy Murray allegedly claimed to have measured at his low (187.5cm)
Tunman said on 2/Feb/15
Nice,it seems you corrected the heights for tennis players. the .25 was just useless for Federer.I think all are at their true height now.
Nadal could be 6'0.25 or 6'0.5 and Djokovic 6'1.5 or 6'1.75

Roger Federer 6'1", Ana Ivanovic 5'11".,Victoria Azarenka 5'10", Eugenie Bouchard 5'8.5", Nick Kyrgios 6'3.5" and Thanasis Kokkinakis 6'4". (Just my opinion,a few of their official heights are listed slightly taller*)
Judd said on 9/Jan/15
yeah that's a perfect listing for him...he's a strong 6'1", like kevin costner or barack obama! now rob i think you should downgrade a bit maria sharapova...he really never been 1" over federer...i think 6'1.5-1.75" is really the best choice for her...
Silent_D said on 9/Jan/15
Definitely solid 6 foot 1. Greatest of all time!
kevin said on 14/Nov/14
If Liam Payne is 5'11, Federer would be easily 6'1 plus and Murray would be a solid 6'3 guy, Payne is more like 5'10
Bran said on 13/Nov/14
@Rob- Mattew
Although i dont know as much as rob obviously, i tbh personally think liams 5ft9-9.5, ive studied one directions heights for a year or two and no way is liam 5ft10, surely not Rob ?
A.) He looks very simular to harry when both in flat shoes, and when harry has thicker footwear Harry duly looks taller.
B.) His posture is good and he generally has decent footwear. ( harrys is bad )
C.) At times he can look identical to zayn, and in many photos even a 1 inch difference is hard to spot between them.
D.) 90% percent of the time he looks an inch taller than weak 5ft8 range at best louis.
E.) Look at him next to pharal williams, david beckham, nick grimshaw, olly murs, he's not over 5ft9 range.
F.) Look at him next to niall horan, for example, both wearing flat footwear on the day of meeting beckham, no more than about 1.5 inches between them.
G.) Rob, Liam was the same height at 16-17 roughly as now, even at 14-15 on his first appearance on x factor he was same size as 5ft7-8 O'leary.
Finally.... look at the REAL MADRID photos,.. if liams over 5ft9.5 i will give up guessing height for life, i respect your opinion rob and trust you, but this guys not over 5ft9-9.5 is he ?
mattew said on 11/Nov/14
Hi Rob, What are your thoughts on one Direction's Liam Payne?, I am not sure if he claims an height, he has a picture today with Roger Federer at the atp tour finals, Looks a good 3 Inches shorter than Federer who looks a legit 6ft1 guy for sure 185-186cm range I think.

Maybe 5ft 10 for Liam Payne is my guess having seen that picture
[Editor Rob: Payne claimed a few years back that he wasn't 5ft 10 but closer to 6ft and then said '5'11", so that's his claim.
I think Payne probably could edge styles out a little, he looked as though he might have gained a little bit of height around age 18]

Fred said on 26/Sep/14
But really you'll never be completely accurate unless you get a special laser measurement of their heights. All of what is said on this site is based on speculation, comparing images, and maybe at best meeting up with these celebs and then guestimating their height. I agree you are probably within a few mm of their actual heights but they are still just estimations at best.
Josh said on 26/Sep/14
No hair split just want top 4 guys accurate...Rob has done right by making Murray 188 and Djoko me it is clear Fed is 185 max as as listed early in career...

Murray 188
Djoko 187
Federer 185
Nadal 184

Please Consider Rob I promise you this is accurate have seen all of them many in line with dropping all the other guys a cm as you did.
[Editor Rob: yeah, the 1/4 inch for Rog maybe isn't needed, the 6ft 1 on it's own is probably been a better mark to list him.]
Fred said on 12/Sep/14
you guys are really splitting hairs. Federer is 6 foot 1, plus or minus a few mm!
Josh said on 11/Sep/14
Federer looks at least an inch shorter to me and remember Murray is actually a hair under 6'2 according to him
avi said on 9/Sep/14

There is hardly an inch between Murray and Federer. Murray at 6'2 makes sense. Federer at a strong 6'1 is fine.
Josh said on 6/Sep/14
Rob, I've been at the Open all week and Fed is def more 185...a weak 6'1...please consider is what he was listed at for years like Novak at 187 and is a lot more in line with Andy Murray who we now know is a weak 6'2, as there is clearly and obviously at least an inch between them.
lee said on 15/Aug/14
I noticed his website has his height listed as 186cm not the usual 6'1- 185cm so I am assuming thats a more official thing and perhaps he measured 186cm The ATP do not list to 1/2 inches or anything like 6'1- 185cm- 6'2- 188cm they wont put 186 or 189 down for example.

He always looks a solidly tall man, Legit 6'1 seems right- At worst he might be between 185 and 186cm somewhere
ray said on 12/Aug/14
Federer looks 6'1/ 6'1.25 legit, He is not under 6'1, There is no chance I could see him being under 185cm legit, Novak is around 6'2 looked Inch taller than Roger when they play but Federer is for sure at least 1/2 inch on Rafa Nadal and I am not convinced Nadal is just a flat 6'0 guy
kevin said on 4/Aug/14
I am just giving my opinion I still think Murray could measure 6'2.25- 6'2.5 he recently said he is 6'3 in shoes so he is at least a legit 6'2 guys I am just going of how he looks to others like Djokovic, Federer etc He looks at least 1/2 inch taller than Djokovic who Rob has at 6'1.75 and at least an Inch and a bit on Federer who is listed on here at 6'1.25.

It might just be Andy is 6'2.25ish or something, It's tough to say but he always looks taller than 6'2 guys like Roddick, Haas, Tsonga fror example and these guys are not under 187cm
Josh said on 4/Aug/14
kevin if Murray is 6'2.5 why did he himself say he is 187.5cm, a very detailed figure?
kevin said on 2/Aug/14
For me the listings are accurate on here expect Andy Murray who I still would give 6'2.5 189cm.

I would say
federer- 186- Nadal- 184- Djokovic- 188- Murray 189

Federer: 185,5-186 cm

Josh said on 28/Jul/14
Rob, I would bump him down to a flat 6'1 and 185 cm, he was listed at that for a long time then all of a sudden 186, similar to Novak being 187 for a long time, then all of a sudden 188. This would very much be in line with Andy Murray at 6'2 as he is clearly a full inch if not more taller than Federer.

Nadal at 184 cm is right, but he could possibly go down to 6'0.25, although that is a minute squabble.

To me is is clear Murray is almost 6'2, Djokovic a hair less...Federer 6'1 and Nadal more than a hair less, but not a full inch so.

So Rob, I lobby you to be consistent with Murray coming down, as well as Novak a cm, and knock Fed down a cm to his long time listed height :)
Josh said on 7/Jul/14
He probably weighs less than his listed weight (a lot of player do during the season), but not by that much.He could be around 180 in matches, same for Nadal and Murray. Djokovic probably is down around 170 at the end of a tourney.

Federer is underdeveloped in terms of muscle size, but he has a large frame and is very his "stout" father. Someone like Nadal has a medium frame that is bulked up, whereas Roger has a large frame that is underdeveloped, but they end up weighing around the same.
Tomcat said on 2/Jul/14
Rob, there's not a chance he weighs 185lbs, so why give any credibility to the height claim?

When estimating other players heights you have to really use the only reference we have on the subject which is Andy Murray's height of 187.5 ( 6'1.8" ? ) - which he gave himself and because it it is somewhat lower than his ATP listed height you have to concede he is telling the truth due to its accuracy. With this in mind Roger looks around his ATP listed height to me - 185 ( 6'0.75" ) or possibly a bit lower like 6'0.5" but it is difficult to tell from photos.
Yazz said on 3/May/14
Im 6'3.5 in the morning and I dont claim 6'4. If you dont hit 6'4 at any point you cant claim it.
avi said on 5/Apr/14
I think 6'1 is fair if Murray is 6'2. If Murray is 6'2.25 Federer can be 6'1.25 . I think its safe to say strong 6'1 for Roger. Fools still think Murray is 6'2.75-6'3 even after he said 6'2!
Voiceless Dental Fricative said on 2/Apr/14
I think he's slightly south of 6'1.

Looks a full inch at least below Federer, maybe slightly more.
MD said on 1/Apr/14
I continue to believe this is the best picture showing the height difference of the three, since all three are in similar footwear and fairly close next to one another:

Andy has been clearly taller than Roger for quite some time. It's not a huge difference, but yes, it's a good inch difference at least.
Balrog said on 30/Mar/14
Nah, he is a full inch taller than Fed, but it's okay if you think he's not. Seahawkfan why Murray would claim 187.5cm if he is 6'2.5"? I think 6'2" or 6'2.25" is the max for Andy after his claim, is possible he got measured after a match so that is his very lowest.
avi said on 29/Mar/14
No way its not a full inch. I've seen them obviously. You just choose a few of your favorites with Murray standing closer to camera
Balrog said on 28/Mar/14
Federer is at least a full inch shorter than Murray. There are several pics to compare
avi said on 27/Mar/14
@Balrog says on 26/Mar/14
Rob, now you should bring down Federer to a 6'1" listing and Nadal to 6'0.25"
nah i think Federer is okay at 6'1.25 maybe at night he is 6'1.1 area but i think this is a good listing. look at him next to Murray who 6'2 and Will Ferrell (6'2.5ish) not much difference at all.@Fred says on 26/Mar/14

@Voiceless Dental Fricative says on 22/Mar/14
Now that Andy Murray claims to be 6'1.8 the chances of Federer being a full 6'1 look incredibly less likey.

no Murray is 6'2 the difference is less than an inch so its more likely Federer is 6'1.25 than Murray 6'2.25

avi said on 23/Mar/14
Andy is probably a strong 6'2 leading to 6'2.25-.3 . Ferderer is over 6'1. probably 6'1.25 like Rob has. there does not seem to be a true 1 inch difference between Murray and him but if they both measured i think it is possible as Federer can have a tad better posture than Murray.

Federer is pretty tall he must be over 6'1

He is the same height as sampras who is 6ft 1 they played an exbition match once. He played one with victoria azarenka at january just before austrlian open and he said to her why did you use all those swear words in that press conference back in april last year the one with all the 105 cuss words in and she repield I not sure but I meant it federer is a true pro manners impecible she is a vugar classless champion
Tidal Cruiser said on 2/Dec/13
Pjk, the players height are measured in the morning. Because literally everyone that is enlisted in the ATP computer are measured that way, the tennis shoes is a immediate +1 inch. So they are enlisted like that. Believe it or not, players like Djokovic who is enlisted 6'2 is the same height as some 6'0 players.
pjk said on 1/Dec/13
Federer is always listed as 185cm on bbc sport coverage and Nadal always looks 2cm shorter to me. If Federer is this height, which i believe he is then Nadal is around the 6 ft mark or 182.8cm. David Cameron looks at least an inch taller than Nadal from that line up. I love watching Nadal but from the photo evidence i don't believe he is over 6ft. Also, i am assuming tennis players heights are measured in the morning ( which would be their optimal height ), but i don't know this for certain.

All the best to you fellow affected individuals. We fight tooth and nail nail over half a centimetre - what is wrong with us ? He he
Pleb said on 12/Nov/13
You could had easily searched "Kaka Federer" and come across this clip Click Here , granted the camera position favors Kaka but you can easily gage that Federer is shorter, would had also answered your footwear query.

I thought Kaka must be nearer to 6'2 but he is clearly shorter than a 6'2 Thierry Henry. Click Here This also calls into question Zidane being 6'1, more like a flat 6'-6'05. Unless Henry is 6'3 which I seriously doubt.

Federer also looks dead even with a 184cm David Cameron, just hit up search images. Nadal being under 6ft is no joke. Clearly shorter than a 184cm David Cameron.

Guess Tennis players can get away with inflating there height with those thick tennis shoes.
Pleb said on 9/Nov/13
Shorter than a 186cm Kaka, I peg the Fed at 184cm. That makes Nadal 181-182cm.

I think Rob has it about right Murray isn't 6'3 6'2.5 is believable but he can look 6'3. Federer can look close to 6'2 solo but the evidence points to Federer being 6'1 and change and Murray being 6'2.5 if lucky. I believe there's an inch difference TOPS between them it can look like less in some pictures.

@ Ok, but Federer could be more 185cm and Murray could even be 191cm, I see more than 1 inch in the 2nd photo. But I know you think it's more along the lines of 186.5cm and 188.5cm.

By the way, I think the 'fools' comment is totally uncalled for. It's all just speculation and idle opinion on this site. You can't be so sure about your opinions. Nobody can. It's insulting to call someone a fool when they don't share the same opinion as you.
Late 187cm said on 29/Aug/13
@ avi


I'm not going to push this, because I can see you feel very strongly about it. Arguing about a cm or 2 is pointless for me. Also, your comments vary too much. You've posted various comments stating anywhere between 1/2 inch to a full inch difference. Maybe this was just you making up your mind or coming to a conclusion. Either way I'm not arguing over a cm or 2.

But I will say this, if there's .75 inch, or 2cm, between two people the difference in height should be hard to notice. There would be times when the taller guy would drop 2cm and both guys would look similar or the same. Murray almost always looks clearly taller. Which for me would suggest over an inch, or maybe a 4cm difference.

Here's a few pics. No full lengths, unfortunately. Federer's hair is usually more voluminous by the way. Murray's is starting to thin.

I don't expect you to agree, or even want you to. I'm just expressing my opinion. That's all we can do. You, me, Rob or anyone else. No opinion is 'correct'. You need stadiometers and informed and competent operators to prove that.

absolutely not!! if you learn one thing from this site its NEVER just judge by eyeline. Federer's head is down too and Murray has a 1/4 minimum of hair there plus a spiked style. i think there its looking like a .75 inch difference there. but if you measure Andy h'ed be 1 inch taller than Federer. Murray is struggling with over 2 inches on Nadal there. just ask Rob. point is Roger looks taller than his claim and Murray looks under his claim. is Murray 6'2 flat? no im not saying that but he could be weak 6'2.5 (Rob has him at 6'2.5)
Late 187cm said on 25/Aug/13
@ avi

I see more than .75 of an inch between Federer and Murray there. If you copy the image to a paint editor programme and draw a horizontal line from Federer's eyes across to Murray it should end up around Murray's mouth. That suggests a lot more than .75 of an inch to me.

I think it's a very good picture. Full length, almost perfectly side by side, footwear appears similar, posture appears fairly uniform. Can't really ask for more.

Murray looking close to 6'3 there, if 187/188 Djokovic, 185/6 Federer and 184/5 Nadal are correct. Murray looks good for 190cm.

@late 187cm
not the best picture but decent. as you can see Del Potro struggles with 4.5 inches on Federer and no way in hell theres more than .75 inches between Federer and Murray. Nadal looks barely 6'0 there. Murrays hair is sticking up at least 1/4 inch maybe 1/2 he looks like my 6'2.25-6'2.5 firned except Murrayis waaaay skinnier. i look like Nadal next to him. calling Murray 6'2.5 is fair i think he could be less. no way hes 6'3 flat barefoot. that would make Federer 6'2.25! Soderling is a true 6'3.5
JB said on 10/Aug/13
James, I was at wimbledon also in'79 & I think you are right Borg was 5'11" & I think McCenroe was marginally taller maybe 5'11.5.Official Djokovic 6'2" always looks equal in height to Murray unless Murray slouches,so I think Murray's official height is maybe 1/2" overestimated.I would agree Federer is slightly above 6'1",slightly taller then sampras 6'1". Just to add Tim henman was listed at 6'1" but always looked marginally taller than Federer or Sampras & I've seen him stood besides Becker at wimbledon commentaries, not much difference so I would put him at 6'1.5 6'2" perhaps

AVI comments are spot on, The official tennis heights are usually very accurate, I used to think Bjorn Borg to be very small but stood by him at wimbledon in 1979, he was clearly 5'11", Federer Djokovic, Murray, Nadal all most definiteley their officially listed heights, except maybe Murray 6 2.5" but sureley we are not arguing about 0.5" here or there as your heights can vary from morning to evening by as much as 0.5"

Yes Murray seems over 6'2 flat but federer really does well next to him. Looking maybe 1/2 shorter in many pictures and NEVER looking more than 1 inch shorter than Murray. I'd say federer is over 6'1 maybe close to 6'1.5 no more though. Murray is a weak 6'2.5 or 6'2.5 exactly. Del potro can look 6'5.5 but is obviously 6'6. Djokovic is probably 6'2 flat. skinny built. Had 3 solid inches or so on 5'10.5 agassi.

Murray is more than 0.5 over Federer he looks at least an Inch taller are you blind, Djokovic is a bit taller than Roger and Murray is a bit taller than Djokovic so how does your comment make sense, Murray is more than 6'2 he looks nearer 6'3

Many pictures Murray seems only 1/2 taller than Roger. I admit there probably is about an inch in actuality but no more.even so Murray is close to 6'2 than 6'3. Next to 6'6ish Del potro he looks over 3 shorter. I'd say Murray is almost 6'2.5 roger close to 6'1.25 Djokovic 6'2 flat.

@ StrongEverything - I disagree with that, I think out the 4 Nadal looks like a very average height when looking at first glance. The other 3 look pretty tall to me.
My guesses are:
Murray 189cm
Djokovic 187-187.5cm
Federer 185.5-186cm
Nadal 183.5-184cm

Nadal gives off an impression of being like average/above average..a typical stocky 5'11 guy but when looking closer he does look a 6footer. Id be suprised if he was 185cm though, he just doesnt look more than 184cm IMO.

Federer is taller but not a whole inch. Thats all I said. At times, they look equal. I think the diff btwn them is the same btwn Djoker and Murray which is Negligible at best
John said on 25/Jan/13
Sak, yeah they actually have talked a lot about this on the espn commentary this AO. Look at the top 4 who have dominated and been at the top of the field for so long. All between 184-189 cm.

I think there is more to it than the serve or power though, I mean that def plays a role but if you think about it there is something else I can't quite put my finger on. Players noticeably under 6'1 (I consider Nadal the minimum at 184) or noticeably above 6'2 (Murray is the max at 6'2.5) seem to just not look as perfect on court. I think especially now, tennis is a very 'athletic' sport. Of corse you see great athletes at any height, but all else being equal as they often are at the top of any sport, I think that a little above 6 foot is where you see the most all around athletic guys. Think Ronaldo, Theirry Henry etc.
SAK said on 22/Jan/13
Height plays a major part in tennis; while serving,movement,strength.

6f-6f3 seems to be optimum height. Under 6ft; serving disadvantage and (usually) less strength. If you are 6f4+; mobility is reduced.

Many recent major winners have been between 6f-6f3; Federer(6f1),Nadal(6f0.5),Djokovic(6f2),Murray(6f2.5),Roddick(6f2).
Winners outside this range: Safin(6f4),Del Potro(6f6).

Other good players also in optimum height range: Tsonga(6f2),Gasquet(6f0.5),Wawrinka(6f).

Players outside range this doing well: Ferrer(5f9),Tipsarevic(5f10),Almagro(5f11.5),Raonic(6f5),Cilic(6f6),Berdych(6f5)

Very tall players tend to have very big serves. Shorter players have amazing movement.

I met Roger here in Melbourne Australia in 2009. I have been measured flatfoot in hospitals several times and am never under 184cms. Roger was noticeably taller than me. He is definately taller than the 185cms he is always listed at. he is no shorter than the 186cms he is given here. I question whether he is actually 187cms, which is edging close to 6'2. I have been looking at the Tennis bios, and it seems they never update the heights and weight after the player is about 18, and I am guessing the height is self-reported as Lleyton Hewitt is in no way 180cms. Funnily I saw 6'6 (possibly taller now) juan Martin del Potro still listed as 82kgs on the Aus Open Website. He has been updated to a more realistic 97kgs on the ATP site.
SAK said on 17/Jan/13
Thanks John. Commentators kept saying (during Australian Open 2013 match), he is a small 5f11 man. But didn't look 5f11 at all. He also has a long body and short legs. I agree he is most likely 177-178cm.

John I saw the clip and it isn't the best because both are carrying the trophies so they aren't standing at his best posture. Well Federer is legit 6'1'' man to me (185.4) and I'll put Nadal at 6'0'' (182.9).
John said on 12/Jan/13
Balrog, look. You can't deny this. They're standing right next to each other, still and flat both in tennis shoes of presumably equal height.

7:31-7:38...perfect to tell height. Nadal's shoulder height is actually higher.

Fed is taller but marginally so, looks only 1 cm there. I think Fed may be 185.

I'll agree in many players with you SAK. Btw I met Juan Martin Del Potro here in Argentina and he's a little over 6'6'', because I'm over 6'1'' myself and he has 5in over me. Juan Martin is really, really tall, because I'm a tall guy in my country and I felt quite average next to him.

Ferrer is 5'8'' and pretty short for a tennis player, Djokovic is just under 6'2'', compare with legit 6'2'' guys like Tsonga or Roddick. Federer is legit 6'1'' and has always listed at that height. Gasquet is not 6'1'', look at him next to Federer.

It is possible that the 186cm is taken in shoes, I can see at the lowest for federer is 6'0, he does look 4 inches shorter than 6'4 greg rusedki, so I think 6'0 for federer is accurate.
Preston said on 19/Aug/12
To me Roger does not look anywhere near his 186cm listing to me, next to Victoria Azarenka who is 5'11 he barely looks taller.
Andy said on 14/Aug/12
I think federer is 6'0 he is a little shorter than 6'1 David Cameron
Brock said on 13/Aug/12
aiden, Federer is 6'1 and a bit, Djoker is 6'2, and Murray is just a hair under 6'3.
Aiden said on 13/Aug/12
From this picture, Murray, who is listed as 6'3, doesn't look that much taller than Federer:

So, I would say 186 cm for Fed is legit.
andrew said on 10/Aug/12
6`2 is a joke he is 6`0
Shaun said on 5/Aug/12
The 6'1" listing for Sampras I always believed. But if I had the choice of 6'1.25" and 6'0.5" I'd go for 6'0.5". Sampras could be 184cm but Federer lowest I can see is 1.85m.
Shaun said on 5/Aug/12
Watching him as we speak, I'd estimate him as 6'1" and 185 pounds. I think he has perfect proportions for a tennis player, not very tall range or muscular, elegant above anything really. You're kidding yourself if you think he's under 6'1". He looks about as 6'1" as you can get to me!
eddie said on 30/Jul/12
Wait, did the same person comment as Ramon, james and Andrew just to get their point across? LOL not that serious. I would barely buy 6'0. Under 6'0 is crazy.This isn't the Nadal forum. Good height listed.
clive said on 26/Jul/12
roger is 6 feet 1 he is not much shorter than 6ft2andy rodwick. under 6ft absurd
andrew said on 25/Jul/12
federer is not 186m he could be in trainers i met him attp tours final last year he is exactly the same height as me 6 feet no more no less
james said on 25/Jul/12
met federer in the a charity tennis event in canda earlier with year. i am 5 feet11 in shoes and federer was the same height. roger federer is not even 6tt
ramon said on 25/Jul/12
i met roger federer at the 2012 wimbledon championships. i am 5 feet 11with my shoes on and was eye to eye with him federer is not even 6ft
mister said on 17/Jun/12
He's 6'1 or 1.85. He is actually really broad shouldered and looks a lot more built than he does on tv. He often looks skinny on tv. Roddick is a big strong looking guy, but Federer isn't far away.
Ali said on 11/Jun/12
My guesses are:

Nadal 182cm
Federer 183cm

Sampras and Federer are about the same height, but
Sampras looks shorter because he slouches.

Federer is not 186cm IMO.

Agassi is 2-3 inches shorter than Nadal. So he is
5'10 at best. 5'11 is completely nonsense. John
Mcenroe is 5'11 and he is clearly taller than Agassi.
Agassi is very little taller than his wife Graf who is
around 5'8-5'9.

I believe all ATP tennis players are listed an inch taller
than they are in reality.

The most difficult height to judge is Fernando Verdasco's.
He is listed at 6'2, but he can look exactly the same
height as Nadal. He is definitely no 6'2. 6'1 at best and
to be honest I think he is 6'0. He is definitely shorter
than Feliciano Lopez who is 6'1.5.
tom said on 9/Jun/12
ive seen him up close a dozen time in majorca,seems a nice chap btw,but a shade over 6.0" he was in beach shoes so they are pretty much 1/8" rubber things,i'm 6-2.5" and he was really close to me in height. met andy murray hes pretty much same as me imo.
Alex said on 7/Jun/12
If You Go To Click Here It Says He Is 185.
FEDFAN said on 12/Feb/12
Yeh I second what MISTER said. Make a Nadal thread because he is most disputed on everybody elses thread. I have seen Federer a few times and I am 177cm and I managed to get his autograph. When I said thank you I had to look up at him. Those who say he is only 180cm or that craziness, your wrong. He is very tall and broad shouldered.
mister said on 11/Feb/12
Rob, if it isn't too much of a hassle could you make a Rafa Nadal thread? He seems like the most disputed on the Federer, Djokovic, and Murray page.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m- 1.84 m said on 7/Feb/12
Thanks mister, he's my favourite tennis player, just great to watch.
mister said on 6/Feb/12
Jaek, Wawrinka is close to listed height. I saw him at IW and he is very close to the 6'(1.83) he is listes as. His weight on the other hand, I disagree. He is at least 195. He is definatly not 179 anymore. He is build like a lumberjack, and very broad and muscled.
SAK said on 6/Feb/12
@Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP, good pics.

I stick by Federer being at least 185cm, not sure on Sampras I never watched tennis when he was around.
John said on 2/Feb/12
Federer is 6'1 but not much more...not positive about the extra quarter of an inch...Nadal is 1/2 inch shorter than Federer and a little over an inch shorter than Djokovic.

The players are all measured, usually barefoot but not always. (It should be apparent who isn't since tennis shoes usually add about an inch). Also there are cases where the measurement is clearly not accurate, disregarding whether they were measured barefoot or not. So the measurements while a good guide are not verbatim.
Dicky curtis said on 1/Feb/12
sampras is a slouch, he is 1.85 allright.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m- 1.84 m said on 31/Jan/12
Nadal is likely at least an inch and a half taller than Agassi.

Nadal: 183.5 cm- 184 cm
Sampras: 183 cm
Federer: 185-186 cm
mister said on 30/Jan/12
Shrimp, AND you gotta remember that Sampras is a notorious sloucher and he looks to be "at ease" whilst Fed appears to be at full height. I would go with a hefty 6' for Fed, but no more.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 30/Jan/12
SAK says on 28/Jan/12
Sampras is also wearing black shoes which will add extra height then Federers sports trainers.

I agree Sampras is 182cm, but Federer is 185cm.

Here are some more shots of Federer and Sampras, wearing similar footwear:

They look pretty close in height to me. If Sampras is 182, I could buy Federer at 184, but I think 185 is pushing it. He's definitely lower than his 186 listing.
mister said on 29/Jan/12
Yeh Jake, I think some are measured in shoes and others barefoot. I remember Mcenroe saying that he had hit with David Ferrer. The other commentator said Ferrer is a smaller guy at 5'9, and Mac laughed and said "barely" 5'9.
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m- 1.84 m said on 28/Jan/12
That's interesting mister, I'd say a lot of tennis players' heights are embellished slightly. I've stood next to No. 41 in the world Philipp Kohlschreiber and he appeared 176- 177 cm max and is listed 5" 10.
SAK said on 28/Jan/12
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP says on 24/Jan/12
I'm not buying 186cm for Federer either. He's only a fraction taller than Sampras.
Sampras looks 5'11.75"/182cm MAX next to 5'11" McEnroe in HULKO's pictures.

Federer may be 6'0.75". Nadal I think is 5'11.5".
mister said on 26/Jan/12
Jake, I once got David Nalbandian's autograph at the Legg Mason and I was surprised how short he was. I got on the internet and he was listed at 5'11, but I can tell you he maybe is 5'10 with help.
richard said on 26/Jan/12
he is 185cm all the sites and the player information before tennis matches say he is, 185cm is a fraction under 6ft 1 6'0.75
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m- 1.84 m said on 25/Jan/12
Well Gasquet looks no more than 5" 11.5 (182 cm) in that picture with Federer but surely he'd be at least 6" 0. 182 cm max for Sampras? I doubt that, he may not be the 1.85 m he gets listed at but he's probably about that in the morning. 6" 0.25 maybe for Sampras?

gasquet at 6'1? Click Here
ivan said on 24/Jan/12
I would say Fed is 184 cm, i don´t buy him being 186cm......Del Potro is no less than 2 meters, maybe 2 meters and 2 or 3 cms. He is just a Giant and if you compare Federer to Delpo at the Open when Delpo beat Roger in 2009 i see Delpo being 17 or 18 cms taller than Roger, 184cm for Roger is right on spot....
Silent d said on 23/Jan/12
Jim courier is listed as 182cm on a certain page starting with w. He looks 6 foot 2. Maybe lifts. Federer is 186cm. Mardy fish is definitely taller than andy roddick. If roddick is 6 foot 2 than mardy is 189cm.

He appeared slightly taller than Jim Courier who is listed 185 cm. I agree about 1.81 m for Simon, Richard Gasquet is listed as 6" 1 these days anyway is probably close to that. 11.
Shaun said on 20/Jan/12
Looks this height next to Prince William.
steven said on 19/Jan/12
he does't look quite 186cm. much like a 185cm 6'0.75 guy
mister said on 15/Jan/12
I can't attest to fish's feight but I have seen Fed practicing and he is close to listed if not slightly higher.
Silent d said on 15/Jan/12
Federer is definitely taller than nadal. 186cm. Pretty close to height with 188cm sharapova. I don't believe simon is 6 foot. I remember when versed gasquet and they said they are both listed at 6 foot and gasquet is clearly taller. Simon 181cm and gasquet 184cm. I thought tsonga was 189cm but he is only 188cm. He looks big.
jake, 1.82 m/ 1.83 m said on 14/Jan/12
What about former American player Jim Courier? Same height as Sampras? To me he seems 6ft 1in.
jake, 1.82 m/ 1.83 m said on 13/Jan/12
Actually Mardy Fish is listed as 187 cm on his official website so he could be more a weak 6" 2 in actuality.
mister said on 6/Jan/12
It seems the "idel" height for tennis players on the ATP is 6'1. Federer, Sampras were all 6'1. Nadal is not that tall, I saw him listed as 6' on a Barcelona tournament profile in 2005. I tried to check it but it had been upgraded to 6'1. I don't really think height is as big of a deal as people make it out to be in tennis. You can be really tall and have a great serve but if the other guy gets the ball back your chances of winning a baseline rally are less. If your shorter you are quicker and have to rely more on breaking serve because your serve usually isn't a weopan. The general thought is 6'1 is the perfect height for a good serve and movement. IDK?
Chris said on 4/Jan/12
@mister. Ferrer looks solid average guy, I think 5'9 fits better to him than 5'8, of course he's short to be a tennis player because the average is around 5'11-6ft.

@Jake. Simon is a skinny 5'11 same as Alexandr Dolgopolov (ukrainian player). Both were listed at 5'11 till last year when they were upgraded to 6ft (Dolgopolov grew an inch at 23 years old and Simon at 27!) I don't believe it. Many people said that back to 2005 when Nadal was 19 he was listed 6' even and the week after he won Roland Garros he was changed into 6'1.
mister said on 4/Jan/12
Case in point. Click Here
mister said on 4/Jan/12
Jake, Richard Gasquet is the same way. He is listed as 1.85m but if you see him stand next to a 1.84ish Nadal or Federer he is definatly not 1.85. Players often are measure with and without shoes. Federer is around 1.87 in shoes as I have seen him practicing up close. Other pros just lie about their height? Every hear of the celebrity 3 inch rule?
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 3/Jan/12
What about French player Gilles Simon? He get's listed as either 6ft (1.83 m) or 5ft 11in (1.80 m). I'd estimate 5"11.25 (181 cm) for him. Tsonga looks about 6ft 2in.
