So... :confused:

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. :tape::lol: Healthier than Vee apparently. :lol:

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 :eek:)

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. :wavey:

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.

Henin has a BMI of 20. So does Ana. Kuzzie has a BMI of 24.

These BMIs are all completely wrong due to the outdated profile statistics.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.

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.

Bingo.

That's the problem using only numbers.

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...

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. :)

Lol so are African Americans supposed to have a higher BMI? So Serena is considered good?

I think that Bartoli weighs in the 120's or 130's but she doesn't have much muscle tone. Like Lindsay.

I suppose that mixtures between "races" which have gone on since the beginning of time my cause some havoc with this, no?

I doubt that, weight is spread different;ly between the races (in women only i would imagine) but we gotta wonder about blake, agassi and nadal who have ample backsides.:lol:

Why don't they just do it like boxing matches---have an official weigh-in before big matches. The girls would appreciate all the extra attention and hoopla.

Kournikova looked perfect when she played---at 123 pounds. Her weight is way too low nowadays. I noticed Bondarenko shaking hands with Maria---they are both listed at 130---hmmm. Cikulpova, who plays Maria in the claycourt final was listed at 110, but now is 121. trying to intimidate the opponent by giving her correct updated weight?
