Rob, who would measure taller, John Cena or Venus Williams?
Editor Rob: sometimes I would say both could seem the same range...tough one, Cena I wouldn't go less than 184, at times 184.5 seems very possible...venus I never thought was a big solid 6ft 1, more in the almost 6ft 1 range.

Fowler and Evert just said they think she's actually 6'3.

Of course all these women are this tall. Whoever says different is clearly mad. Oh, Roger Federer is shorter than Maria S.

Can look anywhere from 6"-6"1. Personally I think her sister needs to be upgraded to at least at strong 177. 2.5-3 inch is all I see between them when in same footwear and posture.

Perfect example of someone who is very close to 6'1 but just slightly under

Wouldn't list her over 6'0. Doesn't look 6'1 or 6'0.5 to me but I could be wront
anon said on 11/Aug/16
this listing seems pretty accurate, she is at least in that 6'0- 6'1 range solid

How Tall would you guess British tennis Player Johanna Konta have seen her listed as 5'11 and 6'0 she does look at least 2 Inches shorter than Venus tho, I would guess she must be more like 5'10 range maybe similar to Laura Robson, seems most the women get listed 1-2 Taller than they are outside of the williams sisters.
Any Idea on Konta's height?
Editor Rob: 5ft 10-10.5 range might be likelier than 5ft 11.5-6ft!

I'm sorry, but I have been watching tennis for a long time, and anyone claiming Venus is under 6 ft is either trolling or new to the game. She has ALWAYS looked at least a minimum of 6 ft, always looked at least 3 inches taller if not more than Serena. I always thought she was actually in the 6'1 range, but with Sharapova's downgrade, I believe she is under Maria by an inch. Underrated player because she will always be in the huge shadow of her sister, but nice and humble player and in my opinion a future Hall of Famer for breaking many glass ceilings.

Nope, her barefoot height is around 181 cm. As always, the heights in tennis game is listed with shoes.
said on 11/Jan/16
Karolina Pliskova is 6'1 (1.86 ) and Venus is taller her.
Emil 183 cm said on 17/Dec/15
I see 5'11.5 for Venus Williams and 6'1 for Sharapova. Just my opinion
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 6'¾(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.
Emil said on 12/Sep/13
She's no more than 5'11 unless Federer and Nadal are 6'3
K said on 24/Jun/13
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.
nona said on 11/Mar/13
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.
Fed said on 8/Mar/13
Galina is 183cm or 6 feet, Venus is taller , more like legit 6ft1
Copnovelist195 said on 9/Nov/12
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.
nona said on 7/Nov/12
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
mister said on 30/Jan/12
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!!
Ricky said on 28/Oct/11
Hmm Jake, in fact, after watched a lot of pics of Ana, I'd say about 181/182 for her...
jake, 1.82 m said on 14/Oct/11
Ivanovic 180 cm? Come off it, she's at least 183 cm. 6' 2" Djokovich doesn't have more than 2 inches on her.

Guess Venus inherited her dad's heihgt and Serena her mom's build. Not saying that Serena at 5'9" is short but with her height takes a back seat when compared to her size and strength
Ron said on 24/Jun/11
Lindsay Davenport can never be shorter than 189cm, probably 190cm
Andy Roddick (188cm) said Lindsay is taller than him
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Apr/11
Venus Williams 6"1(185cm)
Maria Sharapova 6"1.5(187cm)
Lindsay Davenport 6"2(188cm)
Ron said on 1/Mar/11
One thing I;m pretty sure, Venus is at least 3cm higher than Ana Ivanovic. If Any of you here absuedly say Venus is normally 183cm ,than Ana is 180 at most. However, Ana is at least 2cm higher than Dementieva when they both wear sneakers. Could Dementieva only 178? ridiculous! Dementieva is 181cm!! So Venus is surely over 185cm
Ron said on 1/Mar/11
If Venus is 184 at most, Then I am very sorry, Maria Sharapova is no more than 185cm
RON said on 22/Dec/10
more than 1.85 no doubt
moreover Safina is 1.85 too she is very hunched if she stands straight Safina is definately 1.85

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.
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.
Anonymous said on 5/Sep/07
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"
Anonymous said on 2/Sep/07
Venus looked taller than Ivanovic during their match today. I mean like easily taller. I think she's 6'1" but has horrible posture.
MCI said on 3/Aug/07
i really didnt know tennis players were that tall, untill I saw her at wimbeldon or how ever u spell that. She was extremely tall and thats why I had to check it out, and Im hearing maria is even taller than her, WOW, im amazed!

1.75 inches shorter than 6'2.5 lindsay davenport
Anonymous said on 23/Jul/07
I think she's 185, she has HORRIBLE psoture though where as Sharapova has really good 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 9...in shoes. Yet the honorable gent got listed 5ft 9 for his career.]
Adam said on 17/Jul/07
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?
whatsername said on 12/Jul/07
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.
Height Tracker said on 9/Dec/06
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
rick, about you, which is venus height??? and davenport and sharapova???
