yeah right, Ireckon its about 5ft 11. There's a pic of them after the US Open and there is very little difference in their height.

Martina1 - Yeah but Serena is at least 2 inches shorter than Hantuchova. When you saw them atthe net atthe end of their match Dani was way taller.

No way, Serena was not 5" shorter than Venus on the shots I saw. Serena is at least 5'10".

Venus and Serena are sitting on top of the WORLD

I'm beginning to wonder, there's a picture of her and Capriati and Jenn appears to be taller. Momo and Monica are also taller and they list themselves as 5'10.

Venus always bends her need slightly, I noticed it today when they were at the net and at the tropy presentation. I've also seen Venus and serena in person, up close, Vee is alot taller than rena. I would say Rena is exactly 5'8

VENUS. ANA, TAY TAY. NICOLE. LAURA. KONJUH. MADISON

SERENA. MUGU. VIKA. PETKO. CARO. TIMEA. SVETA. HEATHER. KAIA. TAMIRA. FLAVIA. GEORGI. COCO. LUCIE, SLOANE. PENG. SORANA. ALICIA. JAEDA. CICI. ANETT. DANKA. DONNA. FRANCOISE.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. SHENAY. DINARA. GISELA. SPREM.

I think she is 5'8. She is about the same as Kim, anyway. Which makes her serve all the more impressive.

I thought this argument was settled a while ago. I remember a thread where pictures (with Jenny, Pierce etc were posted).

She CANNOT betaller than 5'8" because i was ACTUALLY looking out for her height in her match against Mauresmo. As they stood together, Mauresmo was clearly taller than Serena by at least an inch. Unless Mauresmo was wearing a hidden high heels, which might have contributed to her drubbing?

Indeed that really exposes weakness in the serves of the other players around 5'8" or taller. I mean why can't the Cappy's of this world serve as well as the Serena of this world. Count it be better technique? (Hint hint!)

ALL OF THE PLAYER STATS ARE WRONG!! Well, some of them. They're either very old and haven't been updated for a while, or the players are lying about their height and weight. I believe the players just submit their height and weight to the tour and the WTA prints it in a Media GUIDE.

Serena is taller than Mauresmo. You guys should look at the La Paz picture last year when Serena was standing next to Amelie. She was taller.

Both Venus and Serena have the tendency to stand with their weight on one leg and their other knee bent forward. This motion would make anybody look shorter. I think Serena's 5'10". And this must be true because I said so. Hahahahahaha!

Dammitt, Venus!!!

Some of the Stats are very old.

If Serena weighs 140lb (10 Stone) I'm a Dutchman!

She's mostly muscle, and must weigh 150 lb at least.
