Re: Is there a reason why tennis players are usually v. tall?
Right now, there's just such an emphasis on power in the game. Obviously, that favors taller, heavier women. Justine and to a lesser extent Coezter and Nastya (although at 5'8" she's tall by many standards) showed there's still room for the smaller, quicker player. It's interesting in that some of the new players coming up don't appear to be as big (Chacky's about Myskina's size, King is actually fairly compact, there are a couple of others well under 6'0).
It will be interesting to see if the trend towards "Big Babe" tennis continues, or if it's just an anomoly of the 00s.
