I think the general rule in sports (as it is in life) is that men tend to fudge about their heights and women tend to fudge about their weights. Combine that with the fact that Venus is probably wearing heels and you get that result for a man and a woman both listed at 6'1".I guarantee you she is wearing heels of at least 3 inches...
That being said, she's still abnormally tall (like most successful female tennis players). Her WTA profile page lists her as 6'1"
Wrong use of akimbo. You probably mean flailing.He is scared the camera will capture his soul.
They don't call her "BIG BIRD" for nothing. I am not sure if she looks worse in street clothes or when she is whipping around the court all arms and legs akimbo while trying to not step on her own crossing feet.
Rafa's shoes have about 1 inch pudding to them.Whoa. Interesting pic. I wonder how many teenagers out of the bunch here did not even stand next to a women. Many I suppose, if they did they'd know that women do look taller because of their overall build and figure plus the smaler head. Also 3 inch heals do help you look 3 inch taller ..
