Is Venus really that tall in person?

For those of you that met her, did she appear that 'stunningly' tall than the pictures say? What I mean is, did she appear 'unusually' tall for a woman, in the sense you can't help but stare at her all over? Or is it that she just appeared reasonably tall? This question also applies to those people who were taller than her when they met her in person.

Regards
Joe

PS: I still think that Venus is taller than Maria S but its the camera angles that lie.

Yes, she is tall. But I must say Davenport appears extremely tall in person, especially now that she is thinner. Even more than Venus to me.

Yes. Though, for some reason, Lindsay seems to "tower" more.

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

She is tall, especially her long legs make her look tall. I was impressed standing next to her (probably because she's taller than me ). But I was actually even more impressed by Oracene.

Yes, she's tall!! Also, she's amazingly small-boned, her wrists and ankles are really tiny.

Lindsay D was the tallest on tour... until Elena Bovina came on the scene.

Queen Vee probably bends her knees more than Lindsay which makes Lindsay look even taller.

Better! But you have to push off MORE with your legs!
