How many short players ( less than 1,75 m = 5' 8 ) use extended racquets?
Justine Henin, Dominika Cibulkova, Martina Hingis, Olivier Rochus, Michael Chang...
how tall is henin??
According to the WTA website:1,67m
I don't think there is a correlation between height and racquet length. Davenport, roddick and sharapova use extended and probably more if we thought hard. I think hantuchova and lopez as well and they are tall.
Zheng Jie uses a standard length racquet, although her RDS 003 was slightly longer than her present RDiS 300.
She is 5'4" (some sites have 1/2 more, but the point is she's kind of tiny).
I think Davydenko.
Richard Gasquet did.
All use extended racquets but not all of them are short.
Hewitt is short and uses a standard 27" racquet.
