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?

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

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.

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

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?? :shrug:

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.

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:

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

But it isn't helping her, and this is coming from a big fan. It looks like she's about to lose to Anne now. Get her own the move and she's fucked basically. If she was slim and fit, she would be able to move a lot better and there wouldn't any major weakness in her game.

The players weight is never updated. I mean, do they expect anyone to believe that Venus has been 160lbs from as far back as 1999? :lol: And on what planet is Serena 150 lbs? I doubt she's seen that weight on a scale for years :tape: Yeah and :rolleyes: at Maria who is 6' 2" weighing 130 lbs :rolls:

I wouldn't take much from these official listings. For a while, a number of sources had Serena at 130 lbs. when she clearly was 25-30 lbs. heavier.

I wonder who is heavier Maria or Serena? I would imagine their weights would actually be quite similar.

Itīs a joke! She should weight 68-70 kg (maybe 150 lbs I think)

Marion could be 800lbs and she would still be a golden goddess for me...

I just am sad she didn't let Keothavong reach her first Tier 2 Quarter today :sad:

Not sure how often the WTA actually updates its profiles. Alisa Kleybanova for instance is an example of a player who dramatically lost tons of weight, but I don't think she is only 159lbs from what I saw during the grass-court season. It also says she is 5-11 but I think she is taller than that.

Who reallly knows but the player right?

No kidding?
It all depends what percentage of body fat.

I'm 185 cm, and weigh about 85 kgs, but weighed 100 a few years ago, and 12.5 stone when I was 12, but can remember when I weighed 1 stone (16 lbs!:lol:)

She got to a Wimbledon final with her weight so people could give her some credit for that and stop making silly jokes about any player that is a bit overweight compared to her skinny colleagues.

The topic of Marion's weight has been discussed here very regularly over the past 18 months. A legitimate topic, yes, but its been done.

Each new thread becomes an excuse to ridicule her almost immediately...
