Bartoli's Weight...

i was looking at marion bartoli's profile on the WTA website and was shocked to see that she weighs a mere 128lbs. i thought her height may have been the reason, standing at 5'6"

so i looked for other players with a similar height and compared their weight to bartoli's. i found casey dellacqua. standing at 5'5" she weighs 150lbs, which shocked me as i always thought of bartoli as the bigger girl of the two. vania king, a small and slender player in my eyes also stands at 5'5". i was shocked to learn she weighs 127lbs, 1 inch smaller than bartoli and weighs 1 pound less!

which brings me to my question - is the weight on the profile wrong (or old) or does bartoli simply look bigger on tv than what she actually is?

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Bartoli's Weight...

As i once heard, Wta players' profiles are "one of the best weight loss programes" ( a commentator kept saying this a few years ago) so i don't think you should really believe on what happears there.

Serena Williams || Ana Ivanovic
Michelle Larcher de Brito || Venus Williams || Monica Seles || Elena Dementieva || Silvia Farina Elia
Belinda Bencic || Kim Clijsters || Jennifer Capriati || Lindsay Davenport

Re: Bartoli's Weight...

WTA says that Serena is 5'9" and 150lbs. Bartoli is definitely up there with Serena and she's shorter!! I would be surprised if she was betwwen 140-160 lbs.

SERENA WILLIAMS. Ana Ivanovic. Li Na.

Re: Bartoli's Weight...

Enough with questions about Bartoli's weight already. Every time she plays a tournament threads like this emerge.

Re: Bartoli's Weight...

It's not wrong, just way out of date.

physical conditioning is a key part of the game. why not discuss it? some people create threads ad infinitum about outfits and the like. at least conditioning is more relevant to tennis. would it be uncalled for to discuss a player's service action from tournament to tournament, or whether they are playing more aggressively??

for what it's worth, i'd say that marion at 5ft 6 is looking at a weight of about 155lbs i.e. about 10-15lbs too heavy given that she has a big frame and is quite muscular.

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.

There's nothing wrong with people discussing it, it just regularly ends up turning into a bashing thread with comments that are trying to be funny, like this one:

Re: Bartoli's Weight...

The weight is taken when the girl first enters a WTA tournament, or when they start out on the circuit
