Comment on the Height of Venus Williams

Est said on 18/Aug/15
Um...I find Galina a strong 6' lady.She is much taller than Mladenovic(1.84m in WTA),Govortsova(1.82m in WTA)and a little taller than Safina(1.82m in WTA and 1.85m in her official website)!I think Venus is at least 6'(1.85m).At the height,she is often a bit crookbacked.

Yeah, Venus always had a very athletic body for her 6'1" frame. During her peak she weighed around 165 lbs but now I guess she has gone up to around 185 lbs which is the same as the much shorter Serena. If Venus who is genetically thin can put on so much weight I guess Serena will easily go upto 220 lbs when she stops playing.

Not under 6 feet.

She's no more than 5'11 unless Federer and Nadal are 6'3

To make it fair, she should play two to four small girls at the same time. Small girls can't compete against giantesses. Maybe there should be a separate league for girls 5'4 and under.

Yeah Venus is closer to 6'2" and Serena is almost 5'10". Guess because of her broad muscular frame Serena looks shorter. Serena's shoulder & back muscles are huge and her calves are bigger than the thighs of girls like Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka.

I took a snap of Venus at the practice courts of the Eastbourne tournament immediately prior to 2011 Wimbledon and I can assure you she's a genuine 6ft1 (185cm). Serena, also at the same tournament, looked taller than her 5ft9 and big with it.

RRR - How tall is this Galina? She looks very attractive, must be one of the long line of tall russian tennis players with long legs and a killer body

You can never say 1.80m for Woz. McEnroe intervied her and she is way shorter than him, and he's listed at 1.80m!!

Why she smile very funny and leaning a lot ? I want to see how exact different between Glenn and Venus.

Glenn when did you take photo with Venus ?
sam said on 20/Sep/07
Wow, I'm amazed by the "Sharapova Canon" shot in RRR's Flicker photos. Never knew there were that many tall girls around...Sharapova just looks average for that group.
RRR said on 19/Sep/07
Cat look the pics Click Here Sharapova is taller Ivanovic and Venus,, and Venus is taller Ivanovic
Cat said on 7/Sep/07
Ana Ivanovic and Maria Sharapova have the same height around 6 ft 1 (185,5 cm). A. Ivanovic claims herself that she is 6 ft. 1 now. Venus must be around 187 cm.

Venus defnitely looked taller than Ivanovic by atleast 2". Since Ivanovic is listed at 6 ft Venus must be abt 6'2" and Sharapova 6'3"

Venus looked taller than Ivanovic during their match today. I mean like easily taller. I think she's 6'1" but has horrible posture.

I recall a BBC interview with Venus at her second Wimbledon (with Garry Richardson) whom she dwarfed considerably. I think she had her hair plaited with the Wimbledon corporate colours (of purple and green). So a few years back - with no Serena just yet. That same year there was a locker room post-match interview that the BBC did (I think it was Sue Barker) in which she was asked if she had grown, and she replied that she had and thought she had now stopped. She said she was 6'1" (not sure if she added a half) but she went on to say "6 foot 3 in tennis shoes". I remember this last bit quite clearly as Venus seemed as if she was giving the interviewer what they wanted - ie 6'1 maybe not tall enough for ya, hey well I'm 6 3 with my shoes on. This then is either a bit of bravado on Venus's part - or the WTA do indeed measure barefoot - if they do indeed verify players heights at all (if this siteis anything to go by).

[Editor Rob: see Vincent Spadea quote. The tennis folk don't appear to do measurements and if they do, they should be hung by the rafters.

He is listed for eternity at 6ft on official tennis sites, yet none of them bothered to check what he said - he said 5ft 10.5.

Michael Chang is another. He stated he was 5ft shoes. Yet the honorable gent got listed 5ft 9 for his career.]

Remember that the WTA measure players in shoes and i can imagine that the height Rob made Venus from looking at this picture is more accurate to her barefoot height which is what we are after.I would say from looking at her tennis shoes thay have to be in the region of 3-3.5cm so take that off her 187cm that she says and you are looking at 184cm i would say. Maria would probaly be on the 185-186 mark and Linsays prbably 187-188?

if it said that maria is 9 inches taller than justin, that means she must be around 5'5"...hey 1ft equals to 12inchs dude....remember
ryan said on 11/Jul/07
going by the commentator i think she is 6.1.5
Anonymous said on 11/Jul/07
the commentator on wimbeldon told that she has grow a bit and she was taller than his 185 cm frame
Lika said on 31/Jan/07
You know, I think she is taller - 187 cm, I guess... All the photos I have seen do confirm that!
Alex said on 22/Dec/06
She could be 6'1 maybe. Was she shorter than Maria Sharapova though? She's over 6'0 though. 6'0.5 could be right. Its possible she is 6'0.5 and Serena is 5'9.5 and they just rounded up for their listings.

What did you make of Venus's height?
rick said on 21/Nov/06
For Venus I'd say just under 6'1" ( 6'0.3/4" ), Davenport looks 6'2.5". And for me, Sharapova is around 6'1". I don't trust her official height.
RRR said on 20/Nov/06
