Panova! :eek:

It's amazing that someone that small can hit the ball so hard.

Dec 26th, 2002, 07:13 AM
Can someone tell me what the height is in meter?
How can I convert it?
I'm not familiar with inches ...

maybe there is an on-line height conversion

Dec 26th, 2002, 08:12 AM
i think rochus is actually 5'4"

Dec 26th, 2002, 08:25 AM
Isnīt Maggie Maleeva pretty small too?

Dec 26th, 2002, 09:41 AM
Why can't we use one scale in the whole world hahaha....
It's confusing ...

Dec 26th, 2002, 09:47 AM
Panova is 1m54

another thing with the commentators over here (and probably US too) they tend to go on and on how the players like their 1/4 and 3/4 of an inch
thats not the case cos its simple...... Most players use Metric system and when converted to Imperial its put down that way.

Dec 26th, 2002, 12:05 PM
Karin Miller is 1m54 too

Dec 26th, 2002, 01:42 PM
Olivier Rochus is listed as 1.65m. Jaime Yzaga was also 1.65m. But I think former Italian player Nicola Petriangeli was even shorter at about 1.58m. That's short for a man these days, but back then his touch was said to be brilliant to watch.

Ann Grossman-Wunderlich is 5'3
Rosie Casals is 5'2
Angelica Gavaldon is 5'2

Jay :D

Dec 26th, 2002, 04:16 PM
How big is Santoro?

Dec 26th, 2002, 04:18 PM
Wow he's taller than I though, 5'10" or 1.77m.
He looks way smaller! :o

Dec 26th, 2002, 04:59 PM
Top 10 NCAA player from Mexico named Zerene Reyes is 4'10"!:eek:

Dec 26th, 2002, 05:51 PM
Amanda Coetzer is 5'1 and 3/4 of an inch exactly:)

Smashnova is about the same:)

they always fuc* up amanda stats on the wta site,
she weights 115 not 120:)
and she is not 5'3, I wish she was, she needs an inch and 3/4, that would mean more power:)

Anyway Federer_chick thanx for this thread, i love for some short girls to get recognized:)
You are the greatest:)

Dec 26th, 2002, 05:53 PM
Panova is 5'2 and3/4, she is not that short:)
