I thought Safina was taller than 5'11...she looked HUGE yesterday after the Rome final. And I had no idea Pironkova was that tall.

Really, don't even look at me...

thanks... I haven't seen her playing, but according to posts here she sounded like a big and tall girl. Maybe it was my misperception.

Yeah it might be worthwhile doing the research properly before making the list.

I never knew Ivanovic was a tall one though.

Yeah, it might be worthwhile reading the post before making asinine comments.
The list is off the top of my head, I clearly asked for corrections.

I don't care what they say, Lindsay is 6'3". Even Pam Shriver says so.

Wow... Stevenson did not look THAT tall in person, unless she's grown over the past 2 years... same with Srebotnik...
