I looked this guy up on atptennis.com, and he is rising rapidly in the rankings, despite being about 200. He is only 20 years old, and he just got to the finals of Chennai, losing to Wawrinka 6 and 6. And the most interesting thing about this guy is that he is listed at 5 foot 4. Has anyone seen him play? He must be faster than heck to do so well at that height?

That's what it says in Wikipedia...162cm, crazy...

Then again rochus is 165cm

friend of mine played him a couple of years ago and he was really short back then (2-3 years ago)
but last time i saw him (Challenger tournament in october) he was really grown a lot ...
he's not very tall but still taller than rochus and more than 1.70..

hope we can see more of him in the future !

Rochus is the smallest player to ever win an ATP event.

watched some matches of him on some livestreams. he did not look like 5'4.. honestly he looked more like 5'11 to me. after his match vs malisse they met up at the net and malisse was only slightly taller than him.

but who knows. tv might not be the best source for guessing the height lol

hope someone can watch him personally and tell us how tall he looks

no he's really grown a lot .. but still people like to claim that he's still that small...

proof : here's a picture of a challenger last year with him and Christophe Rochus
