    On the WTA Tour webpage it says she weighs 135 lbs and is 5'9". Now doesn't that seem ridiculous? I was thinking that at the very least, Serena weighs about 155, until I looked at Mauresmo's information. She is also 5'9" but weighs 152 lbs. I'm thinking Serena has at least 15 pounds on Amelie. So Serena probably weighs about 165. That website must have information from when Serena was a teenager....

    Oh!! What's that term for when you feel like you have been somewhere before? You've had the same exact conversation with the same people or re-lived the same moment in a different sphere of time?? What is that called again, because I feel it right now. Oh...that's right...deja vu!! Of course.:roll:

    There's a thread about this every other month, it seems.

    Sharapova is listed at six foot two and 130 pounds. I highly doubt she's that light.

    A lot of women's players probably lie about their weight. It's not like boxing, where it actually matters.

    Here we go again! I wonder how much she weighs holding all 8 of her Grand Slam titles while on the scale. Get over it! Don't hate just because her bootylicous self can wreck havok on the womens tour.

    I watched TTC and they showed Amelie Mauresmo's profile and said she is 5'9" and 150 pounds.

    I'm like WTF she's fit!

    Exactly!! You can't go by weight and height alone. You take someone like Mauresmo who is in top physical condition and a world class athlete and compare her with a 5'9" model who weighs 110 lbs, yet can't lift a fork to feed herself. I would prefer the athlete's body any day. :p

    more like 135 kg's. looks like it's her genetics coming through - her mom is pretty big.

    not to take anything away from her accomplishments though

    im sorry, you mustve missed when this thread happened about a hundred times before you found out
    maybe you should use the search button...:p
    and i dont think its a case of lying, that couldve been taken back in 2002 when she was on top and fit. i dont think they care to update it everytime someone gains/loses weight. they didnt change Hantuchova's to 85 lbs when she was looking anorexic a couple years ago, i dont think theyd change it when serena was at her worst point either. shes losing weight anyway.

    Her breasts have to weigh at least 15lbs. each. You can't trust those player profiles. I think they have Del Potro listed at 5'10.

    why do you care so much about their weight. I'd be heavy as hell too with all of those trophies. Is there another reason why you don't care for the Williams sisters?

    More important...who is the person responsible for taking the measurements!? Not a j.o.b. I'd like~

    Hey, no matter what, she is a fantastic person, one heck of a player, and has more $$$ in the bank then all of us combined.

    fantastic person might be pushing it...obviousaly great player though yes. Weight and height is given by the athlete...it's not checked or tested (who cares though).

    theyre pretty tall too, and height adds SO much to weight
    i really doubt shes only 135, 135 should be her weight from height alone, who knows what it is when u add on all the muscle she has haha

    Did anyone else catch Navratilova saying during her commentary of the Serena-vs-some Venezuelan match (the opponent was tiny) that they should have weight categories in tennis, like boxing? This was after the other commentator said it was like a heavy weight vs feather weight boxing match. Then Nav retracted and said that is not a nice thing to say!

    Seriously, what about different height and weight categories in tennis?

    That's ridiculous. It implies that weight or weight implies distinct advantages. Compare someone like Sharapova, whose height slows her down, to someone like Venus, who's the best athlete on the tour. Both are the same height.

    Seems like Navratilova agrees with many of us. While commentating on the Krajicek (spelling??) match she stated there is no way Serena weighs 135. She then said that even Serena at her thinnest and fiittest weighs more than 135. Lastly, stated that she herself weighed 150, and she was a lot smaller than Serena.

    She is thick...It also depends on what she wears too. Those tennis outfits are hideous on her. I saw her practice and her tummy is tight. She is just a big girl.

    her mom weighs 145 with one foot on the scale, give me a break. i have stood face to face with serena when she was in better shape than she is now and i guarantee you she is over 170 lbs easy. the more i see play like today i think probably around 180 is the real weight.

    spare me the "how many slams have you won" stuff, we're talking weight here not tennis accomplishments. she puts the 135 out there which opens her self up for the speculation. martina is 150 and looks skinny next to serena. even those of you sho say she is all muscle and no fat, which is ridiculous, guess what, muscle weighs more than fat...

    if she can win slams carrying that load around then more power to her but that doesnt mean i have to like to like looking at it. just imagine what she would have accomplished had she ever really kept in shape?

    like anyone would want to "handle" her..

    i can vouch for what you said about her being big. i stood next to her at the Rogers AT&T Cup (not sure if it was called that then but I think it was) and I'm 6 feet 170 lbs. she was almost as tall as me but BUILT. Her shoulders were like football players. No way she was/is under 170lbs.

    btw, she was very nice to talk to.

    Miles and Richie are spot on here. A woman of 5'9" and 135 would be pretty thin. Serena's got bigger arms/shoulders/thighs than most guys, plus her womanly endowments to go along with them. I'm pretty sure she's taller than 5'9" now, too. If I were betting, I'd say those stats are from when she first came onto tour and that she's grown as well as gained weight since then. And yes, this comes up pretty much any time Serena's in a GS event.

    Good points. Its a wonder that she's won so many slams. How could such a fat woman be so successful? Its certainly bugging many posters on this board. Good thread ;)

    Mileslong, I don't remember ever not liking what you say but you sound truly ignorant. Who gives a f*ck what you like to look at? I'm sure there are things about you that your girlfriend (or boyfriend??) doesn't like to look at. oh, by the way, speak for yourself about anyone wanting to handle her...I'm sure I could tame that big rump and those double D's.

    In front of my computer, obviously
    Navratilova also said that there is NO WAY Serena could play in a weight class under 150 pounds. Navratilova sees Serena everyday. I'll take her opinion over anyone on this board. :)

    It never fails. The customary Serena weight thread, every grandslam she plays in.

    Of course Serena is not 130lbs. HELLO!!!! Get a clue. She is being mischievious about her weight. Lots of girls do that. Serena is just a girl.

    Do we really need the 1237654567th thread about this to rehash this again???

    Instead of beating the rotted horse, why don't we talk about how Jankovic is having the year of her career, playing awesome tennis and maintaining a good weight and could be ready for her 1st grand slam win?

    Or how a Justine/Jankovic showdown would be awesome because Henin has been Jelena's stumbling block for too many tournaments now (including last year's US Open SF which was JJ's to win) although all matches have been close?

    It's going to take a mighty good player to dismiss Serena, even though clay is not her best surface.

    then why dont you start a thread on that subject instead of coming on a thread about that fatarse and crying about it?

    this thread is about serenas so called true weight, nothing more. my girlfriend and i have met her and talked to her and she thinks she is a freakin
    diva and has an ego the size of her arse. i dont like her and i dislike looking at her. its my call if i want to comment on that or not, i dont care what anyone thinks about that either. you can call that ignorant if you wish but while all the yahoos on here talking about hwo skinny and fit she is and what a great person she is, they have never even met her or seen her anywhere but television. i met paris hilton the same night i met serena and while she is a bimbo she was beautiful in person and very sweet to us. i also met kim clisters at indian wells and while not pretty she is the nicest person you would ever want to meet therefore i never bag on her. i only bag on sorry people regardless of the their tennis skills or how much money they make, all you serena lovers should realize she would more than likely treat you like dirt if you ever approached her, after all she is a diva...

    i'm not a serena lover by any means but when i cahtted to her for 5 minutes she was pretty cool and didn't have attitude. but then again, this happened before she won most of her slams. maybe her ego and attitude got bigger along with her ***?

    LOL, you must be so special being able to judge people based on brief photo op "meetings" with them and on their outward appearance. I'm sure Paris Hilton is a "beautiful person" and would never treat anyone like dirt if they approached them based on your Hollywood experience with her. She is also so pretty and not a "non fit" fatarse athlete as you put it. I hope my daughter can grow up to be just like Paris Hilton (except maybe without the drunk driving and parole violations and jail time of course)...Cool for you ;)

    Notice how I don't say tennis player.

    At her peak, Venus was faster, stronger, and had more stamina than anyone on tour.

    Serena is not built like the super stick figure European women and she won't ever be built like that. Call her fat all you want to (by the way she isn't, she's very muscular and has a FLAT stomach, a true indicator of overweight/obesity) but the numbers and the titles don't lie.

    i think the take home message here is-- you don't have to be thin to be a good tennis player, at least on the women's side, as evident in sw. :)

    Milslong, I don't ever remember anyone ever say that Serena is skinny. Fit, yes...skinny, no (thank God). You mentioned that Paris Hilton is beautiful and that you don't like looking at Serena...some that are racially sensitive would say that you have a problem with the appearance of black women. I say you are just culturally ignorant (which saves you from being a racist) and don't realize that beauy is not always a skinny *** white woman (or woman of any color). I don't think Kim Clijsters has the cutest face but I love her body. Some men like thick, muscular thighs and a nice round ***. If you like bumping and grinding with bean poles then have fun, but don't make yourself look like an idiot by saying how much you don't like to look at someone because she isn't your ideal woman. Personally I love watching Henin play but I can't stand her body (itty bitty titty committee chairperson). I think Hantuchova (sp?) is a stick figure and Anna Kournikova is a toothpick (she has a nice face though). Regarding her attitude, it's probably a good thing she was mean to you since you don't like looking at her.
