i was watcing zurich finale between sharapova and dani and at the end when they shake hands at the net, its clear that dani is almost as tall as maria, now if maria is pushing 6'3, then how tall must dani be in real life?? my guess is about 6'1/5"

A lot of players don't update their official WTA stats. it wouldn't surprise me if dani is taller than it says.

And nobody is anything "and a quarter" inch tall. People's height changes by more than a half inch over the course of a single day due to the compression of the spine during the day

dani would definitely be over 6 foot that's 4 sure. WTA really needs 2 get with the program 4 height & weight of players.

its hard to tell ,I think she like lena D is a good even 6 feet tall. they both are taller than wta stats ,they looked the same when stood together a while back ,although Lenas looked taller ocasionally but could be camera angle.. Lena is listed on another site as being 183cm tall ,so maybe Dannis the same

I think Dani is 2 inches shorter than the 6'2and 1/4" Sharapova making Dani 6'1/4" tall.

I would say you are right on, or at the most, a 1/4" off, for both girls.

I seriously doubt that she's 6 feet or 183cm tall. I once was lucky enough to stand next to her (she almost bumped into me), and I noticed she was at least 1 inch smaller than I am. I had to look down to look into her eyes, and I am 183cm (or 6 feet) tall.

My best guess she is about 1m80 or 5'11"

Hmm... maybe she's grown a bit since the last time you met her?

I think she is 183, definitely taller than on the official stats. Its weird cos yesterday she did only look a tiny bit shorter than Maria, maybe Maria isn't 6'2/3?
Also, Lena is definitely a little taller than Dani, so I think its possible Elena is actually more than 6'

Sorry about the confusion, but I was talking about Lena D. I don't think she is over 1m80.

I remember watching Daniela's match against Maria at the AO on TV, and the commentators mentioned she was 1.81 m, which is roughly 5'11'' 1/4. Besides, 6'2'' is 1.88m, which is only 7 cm difference between that and Dani's listed height, so it's not surprising they look about the same :shrug:

David Nalbandian and Lleyton Hewitt are also 5'11'', yet Lena D looks taller than both of them. I think she's pretty much taller than 180cm, but whether she's reached 6'0'' or not is another thing.

well if Lena is the 180cm stated (dont think so) then Dani is actually shorter than her stated height ,id several photos I have of Dani and Lena together Lena is always a tenny bit taller..theres a famous pic from HK with all the girls together , Maria, Nicole ,Lena etc ,sadly not Danni but Poor Little Vera Z was totally dwarfed by Lena ,Lena looked massive ,obviously wearing heels ,but so I guess were the others ,let me try find it.......

Lena is forced to have high heels to be looking taller. Daniela doesn't need to use such dubious tactics. ;) :p

Seriously why are tennis players by average so much taller than regular ppl? I know it helps with serve and stuff but if you look at pleyers' parents most the times they're average height and their daughters are giants. How did thy do that?

I totally agree with this, its weird that the child just happened to be great and tennis and then also grew a lot taller than their parents, are you hinting at growth hormone and other drugs?
Maybe its just that the talented young ones who didn't grow so tall don't succeed, and the ones on tour are both talented and tall.

there you go you're proving my point even more. Players are so tall on the wta that 5'5".5 justine henin-hardenne is considered like a midget. She's like one inch taller than the average woman! She is in no way short. Im a guy and im 5'7" and Im not even considered short by most ppl.

Depends on where you live I guess.
I am 6ft and I am small compared to other men my age. The younger generation is even taller, average about 6'3".

can't believe europsort is stupid enough 2 think that petrova is small. she doesn't look small in real life let alone on the tennis court. she would have 2 be much taller than 1.78m by now u reckon. WTA need 2 update their stats because they're causing a few miscalcuations 4 the fans bout player's height & weight. i mean it says on the site that maria weighs 59kg but she probably would weigh like around 65kg-69kg.
