    is this an extremely old measurement or something? by nadal's build i would have guessed he weighs around 200 pounds.

    given that they are of the same height, does that mean federer have higher bone density or something?

    Yeah I find this quite strange too.

    Federer , Djoker and Nadal have very different builds. But somehow they all weigh similar! I would have imagined Nadal to weigh a good 15-20 lbs more than Fed/Djoker.

    Maybe the stats haven't been updated in a while, maybe it was taken when they first became pro; I mean...look how old the pictures are. It's not like the ATP hunts down players and asks for their weight every month.

    actually they updated a lot of the pics, some look better (Fed, Nadal) some look worse (murray, Roddick)
