Gilles Simon is definitly at least 6ft, if not 6'1. He's usually listed at 5'11 and 65-69kg, but doesn't really look all that thin to me. Look at the picture below.Also, in this years wimbledon, he was visibly taller at the net than 182cm Juan Carlos Fererro.

Del Potro must be at least 6'7. And I find it hard to understand how tall guys like him and Cilic are listed at 82kg when guys like Djokovic and Federer have similar builds and are shorter by several inches are basically the same weight!

Hewitt, as stated seems to be 5'10 or slightly under and Murray looks under 6'3 to me.


Any others?

Gilles Simon looks so scrawny!

Also, Davy and Roddick need memberships to the Hair Club for Men!

And no way is Roger 6'1 if Murray is 6'3.

Agreed... if not taller. I always thought he looked taller than his listed height... and this picture proves it.

He's at least 5" taller than Murray, who is the second tallest of the group. Delpo, IMO is closer to 6'9.

i think hewitt is shorter than his stated height

The rule is...

A man who says he is 5'11'' is really 5'9''. A woman who says she is 5'11'' is at least 6 feet tall:D

if del potro is " 6' 8" " then cilic is too, this picture shows that they're about the same height.

also, with those taller guys, they are taller, but Fed, Nadal, Djokovic are all very well built. You can't see it because they have shirts on, but they are all very strong men. Del Potro has toned arms, but certainly doesn't look stronger than Djokovic.

Simon is also extremely skinny, like Del Potro, without real muscle mass.

this isn't the best picture, but you can see partially though his shirt, which makes him look significantly bigger than he actually is (see his arms)

..ok you're starting to overdo this, maybe you should try toning it back a bit.

With respect to bodyweight, people carry much of their bodyweight in the legs. So too people with similar upper bodies can have quite different overall weight due to different lower body make-up. I would believe Simon's weight to be very low, as his pants fit very loose over what appear to be thin legs. Plus, in his upper body, his shoulders are quite narrow.

Sorry, I'll stop. Thanks for telling me.

Tough to look at a picture and tell. Some guys slouch. Some stand up straight. Some guys stand with feet further apart than others. Some dress shoes have half-inch heels, Some 3/4. Some a whole inch.

I've stood right by a few of the pros. I'm a hair over 6ft, probably 6ft1 with shoes on.
I don't know a thing about their weights, but....just an estimation here on heights, nothing official, but here are my thoughts....

Roger really is 6ft1, maybe 6ft 1 and a 1/2.
Tsonga slouches. He's up there with Djoko and Roddick: 6ft 2 maybe 6ft 2 and a 1/2.

I think Kolya, Hewitt and Agassi are well under what they are listed (5ft 10 or 11). Same with Borg. I think they're all 5ft 9. Chang is 5ft8. So is Rios (who definitely slouches).

JCF is 6ft, but he slouches for sure.

Goran and Marat are huge, but they slouch, too. 6ft4 at least, but they seem like Becker who is 6ft3. I've shaken hands with Becker. Tiny hands, stubby little fingers.

Flip is close to 6ft5. Del Potro, I've never seen up close, but I'm guessing he's 6ft 6 and a 1/2.

Sampras is about my height, but when he stands up straight, he's all of 6ft1 and a half. When he reaches up with those long arms, he serves like he's 6ft3 or 4. Like a swimmer. Broad shoulders, too. He's actually a pretty big guy in a way, even though he looks thin in the chest.

'May be stupid to say this but, in the picture, Del Potro as got a least three inches of hair on his head, I don't know if you guys were comparing by shoulders though.

No to say he is no at least 6'6" though. But I don't think he is 6'9".

I've actually met Simon in person. Trust me, he is skinnny. His legs are about the width of Federer's left arm. No jokes.

All I can add to this debate is that I met Marcelo Rios last year and he's exactly my height: 5 foot 9. Could even be around 5 foot 10 because he was using some really flat shoes and I was wearing boots. I'm not a tall guy, if someone's shorter than me I inmediately notice! :) So Rios might look around 5ft8 if slouching, but he's not.

Where's the rest of the pic? DelPo is clearly bending forward/down.
