Calculate Your Favorite Player's Body Mass Index!

So...

You can use this site...

http://www.mydr.com.au/tools/bodymass.asp

To calculate. You can use http://www.wtatour.com for APPROXIMATE weight and height. (Not all is correct)

Venus Williams has a BMI of 21. (Acceptable)

Serena Williams' has a BMI of 22. (Acceptable)

Marion Bartoli has a BMI of 20. (Acceptable) Weight is clearly wrong on site though. Healthier than Vee apparently.

Ai Sugiyama has a BMI of 21. (Acceptable)

Vania King also has a BMI of 21. (Acceptable)

Maria Sharapova has a BMI of 17. (Underweight )

Jelena Jankovic has a BMI of 19. (Almost underweight.)

Sanda Mamic aka Miss Anorexic has a BMI of 18. (Underweight)

Casey Dellacqua is almost overweight. BMI = 25.

* Normal weight = 18.5-24.9
* Overweight = 25-29.9
* Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

So obviously most players are fit. But here's the quest - fine an obese player. See if you can.

Re: Calculate Your Favorite Player's Body Mass Index!

Maria Sharapova has a BMI of 17.

Underweight? Hmmm. She looks pretty healthy to me!

BMI seems strange to me. It doesnt take into account how much muscle vs fat you have, bone mass, etc etc.

Re: Calculate Your Favorite Player's Body Mass Index!

These BMIs are all completely wrong due to the outdated profile statistics. Most of these girls have gained weight since they were weighed at 16 and Casey has lost weight.

Body mass index is irrelevant for athletes, because a higher muscle mass denotes a higher weight. The skin fold test is the most effective way of measuring a person's fatness.

Re: Calculate Your Favorite Player's Body Mass Index!

these things dont tell you anything as muscle ways more than fat. also who thinks serenas or marions weight on their profile is their actualy weight, i mean even henin is twice as big (muscles in the arm and legs) as she was when they first took her stats so i would say shes heavier than her profile weight.

Re: Calculate Your Favorite Player's Body Mass Index!

Yup, as others have already sayed this is useless, since it depends on whether the weight you have is muscle or fat, and muscle weighs more than fat...

Re: Calculate Your Favorite Player's Body Mass Index!

The range for normal, overweight and obese is different for different races. For example, for Asians, anything over 22.9 is overweight. For Caucasians this can go up to 25 or even 27 in some cases.

Ana has 20...that is healthy.

But I think the numbers are inaccurate anyway.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .
