Will Maria Sharapova and/or Nicole Vaidisova become the tallest players in WTA?

Currently, the height limit for WTA is 6ft 3in, and none has been taller than that. However, there are currently 2 players who might surpass that limit... Maria Sharapova (6ft 2 at 19) and Nicole Vaidisova (6ft at 17). Both are still young and growing.

So, will they be the tallest players in WTA (or possibly in history), or maybe they will stop short of that 6ft 3 mark?

*Yeah, I know this is a stupid topic... but I am reallllllly bored here

Your sig picture exceeds the 200 pixel height limit.

Um...depends on if someone taller joins the tour. My crystal ball is broken...so I'll abstain from voting in this thread.

This thread doesn't make any sense. I predict they are both done growing. Especially Maria. Aren't most humans done growing by age 19?

Not only is it a retarded question but it's an irrevelant question and topic. I didn't know you couldn't be over a certain height to participate in the WTA. What is the low end of this mystery "height limit"?

You're not gonna grow another inch (2.5 cm ) at 19 years of age.. maybe half an inch or so..

Compared to every other player venus doesn't look anything over 6'0" and she's said she's that herself. And imo, both Nicole and Maria are done growing. Most girls are pretty much done growing at age 15-16.

I'm pretty sure Akgul Amanmurandova is the tallest player right now, at about 6'4".

People said Maria was done growing when she was 6 foot, but she shot up 2 inches, so maybe Vaidisova will continue to grow.

most women are done with puberty at 18 or so, so i don't think maria will grow much more
