Do you consider Wozniacki "undersized"?

I was very surprised to see Steve Tignor refer to her as "undersized but tenacious." (article here)

At 5'10" and 145 I think she's slightly on the big side of average compared to current players. What's your take on it?

Re: Do you consider Wozniacki "undersized"?

She's over average size for most women and 145 is average weight for an athletic build for a female so she isn't undersized

She plays an undersized game tho

Re: Do you consider Wozniacki "undersized"?

No way, she's taller than Serena lol

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Do you consider Wozniacki "undersized"?

Caroline's body is bangin' these days, but she's definitely NOT undersized. Don't know what the hell that guy was drinking. I would consider a player like Radwanska undersized.

No. But I don't think much of Tignor's writing, so no surprise.

Yeah many people do but I don't. (Even though she does look small). She's 5'8" 123 so she's not short and her mass/height ratio is higher than Sharapova.

Re: Do you consider Wozniacki "undersized"?

There's height and there's size. She's the same height as Serena. Are they the same 'size'?
She's significantly shorter than Hantuchova, but would you call Hantuchova 'bigger'?

For that matter, as small as she was, Justine Henin never seemed an 'undersized' player. Her GAME was big.

Re: Do you consider Wozniacki "undersized"?

No, Caro's of good size (height and build), and Tignor is just an idiot--so many times when it comes to actual tennis (and players), as opposed to his passionate, dramatic tennis writing, which he appears so self obsessed and enamored with.

Now of course, with that fugly assed forehand, half assed serve, and overall passive, defensive game, Caro plays an underpowered game most times. But her size is fine.

Re: Do you consider Wozniacki "undersized"?

I think she's pretty near ideal for a female tennis player.

Re: Do you consider Wozniacki "undersized"?

i think the wta has a great collection of women, almost all of whom have better than average physiques, but almost no two look that much alike. as a group, they should be an inspiration to women everywhere. but what do i know? i am the wrong gender to be able to say.
