I don't get it. The WTA site says Serena Williams weighs 130 and so does ANASTASIA MYSKINA . What gives she looks twice her size.

And we thought painted rackets was fraudulent!

Serena actually weight 160-170 pounds. And Myskina probably weighs a bit less than 130. It's called creative weight description.

Serena definitely weighs more than her listed 130 and she's 5'8, not 5'10, as some places list her height as. Serena is the WTA's version of the NBA's John Starks who was listed at 6'5, 180 lbs., when he was actually 6'2, and closer to 200 lbs..

Yea but then they list Venus at 160. Why lie for one but not the other?

Do you think any of the tennis players (male or female) lie about their height as well?

Her thighs, alone, weigh the same as MYSKINA.

The guy you use for a signature, Andre Agassi stretches his height a bit. If Andre really is 5'11, then why was he clearly shorter than Brooke Shields who was known to wear flats and is also listed at 5'11?

In fact, now that you mention it, I do remember seeing footage of Brooke and Andre when they were together noticing that Andre's a lot shorter than Brooke.

Brooke Shields is more like 6' 0" or maybe even 6' 1". I've stood next to her and I'm 6' 1" and she was about as tall as I am.

They used to list Jimmy Connors as 5' 10" but most people (including Brad Gilbert) say he's much shorter than that. Michael Chang used to be listed as 5' 9" but I think he's shorter. John McEnroe says he's 6 feet but he's actually like 5' 11".

Some pros just appear taller or shorter when they play on TV. To me, guys like Sampras (6' 1") and Borg (5' 11") always seemed taller than they really were to me. I think it's their body build and maybe small sized heads or something. Also, I never thought Becker looked like he was 6' 3" or 6' 4". He always seemed shorter to me on TV.

Becker is every bit of 6'4". One of my buddies runs a pro shop here in town and he got invited to a Volkl event that Becker was at. They took a picture of him and Becker standing side by side. My buddy is every bit of 5'10", and Becker was stooped over just to get in the picture. My friend said Becker is "one big ole' boy".

I also remember several years ago, the whole height/weight thing came out. It was funny that at her prime, Martina Navratilova was slight taller than and weighed more than Harold Solomon.

With regard to Serena, I don't think anybody knows for sure, but I'd be really suprised if she went over 5'10" and 165-170 pounds. That's a big girl. I would agree that she out weighs Venus though.
