    Hewitt is officially listed as 5'11, or 180cm. But check out this picture. If Coria is 5'9, there is no way Hewitt is 5'11.

    Lleyton is still my favorite player. so this is nothing personal, just an observation.

    Maybe that's with that ugly hat he wears backwards.

    If they list themselves as 6'2, they're really 6'0, if they list themselves as 5'11, they're really 5'9.. if they list themselves as 130lbs, they're really 160lbs (serena)

    If Australia uses metric system, lots of guys list their height as nice
    round number 180 cm when they are like 178.5 or 179.5 etc...
    Convert it to inches amplify difference a bit.

    And finally, some people take their height with shoes on (1" heel).
    So I would guess Hewitt is tad smaller than 5'11". maybe 5'10"

    I was just gonna say the same thing and these days height is overrated.
    Do they actually measure themselves barefooted or with shoes and all because that would leave a margin for inaccuracy.

    Hewitt is 5'9" but won't admit it. He doesn't want to look small, bad enough that he is short.

    Looks like Hewitt isn't even standing up straight in this pic. Let's just say he's 5'10" and be done with it.

    who cares..dont fret on someone ELSES height, it doesnt really matter, at least not to me.

    note that hes also "officially listed" as using a rdx500, which he doesnt use all the time, so.....it could just be wrong

    I'm not sure it they measure themselves. I think the ATP is measuring them... but just as everybody said: Who cares?

    Hewitt is really 5'11". I worked at TMS 2003 in the locker room and I saw him in real.

    i dont think that the point was that anyone particularly cared its just for general interest obviously for a Lleyton fans. when you here something about a favourite player of yours and you see or hear something different your interested in finding out the truth, im sure this would be the same for any fan. all i know is when i watched him practice on court 10 at wimbledon and when he walked past me he was taller than me ie over 5' 9"

    Hewitt's pretty close to 5'11, maybe 5'10 1/2. Hewitt was clearly taller than Kim and she's 5'8 so I don't think he's 5'9 like some of you are claiming.
