Saw him in Moscow over the weekend. Lovely bloke. Definitely 194cm if not 196 (I am 185 cms).

I just wrote a much more interesting one about Arnold Schwarzenegger...here I'm just commenting, can you get a decent picture of Marat Safin! He's a tennis great, and this looks more like he's a bar room great!
As for height, though, thinking that, as with Arnold S., who was a bodybuilder -- these people are in athletics, and I can't imagine their heights and weights are faked too much. I mean, I suppose they're not all heighted/weighted like boxers, down to their arm length -- but I also can't think that any "official" statement, even by themselves, could be more than a half inch off or so.

There is no chance that he was 2" under Del Potro. Safin is an easy 6'5"
max said on 7/Aug/14
Looks a legit 6'4 in person, I would even guessed 6'4.5 maybe but he was clearly 2 Inches under a 6'6 Del Potro and I believe a guy Like Berdych who is 6'4.5/6'5 is taller than Marat.
He was a great tennis player back in his day and such a character.

Marat must be 6ft4. I am 6'8" and met him.

Safin definitely needs an upgrade to at least 194cm, he's consistently looked taller than every guy who has been listed at 6'4''.
said on 18/Jun/11
From a decade of tennis watching (and safin being one of my favorite players in his prime), i cant see less than 195 morning. Berdych is def taller. Del Potro is a good 2cm taller than berdych Click Here
Delpo is a strong 6'6. Berdych 6'5. Safin prob 6'4.5

Safina is definitely at least 195,probably 196 because in 2009 when he paired his sister Safina in Mixed Doubles in Hopman Cup, he is almost 10cm higher than her sister. Safina is strong 186cm according to 2009 Madrid when she stood beside Federer who is legit 186cm. Safina is as tall as Federer even if Fedrer's Nike shoe is a bit higher than Safina's Adidas

Taking account his leaning on this photo, looks 6'4.5-6'5 here. If he would stood straight, Pierric reach only his nose.

I met Safin in Belgrade Davis Cup Final, I am 180, he is minimum 195, this is true .
fren said on 10/Oct/07
marat safin was talking to andy murray not long back now,and he appeared 2 or 3 inches taller than murray who is listed at 6'3, so i would say safin is 6'4 and andy murray i reckon is 6'2.
hunneybunney said on 14/Sep/07
i saw him at wimbledon and he was standing next to dmitry tursunov and he looked quite a bit taller than him, at least 5 inches
REds said on 14/Jun/07
Why looked the same difference between him and that guy name Pierric whose suppose to be 179.5 like the pics with Glenn and the actors about the same height of Maret !?
nick said on 3/May/07
marat is at least 6'4, he is taller than the 6'2 roddick and the supposedly 6'4 murray i saw him side by side with murray and was at least 2 inches taller. 6'4 is right
ed said on 17/Apr/07
i saw him play vliegen in 2006 at madrid they were the same height, both are listed at 6'4,so as far as safin goes he is at least 6'4
cumas said on 16/Apr/07
everyting has 6 foot 4 but i heard judy murray say 6'5 against sela at ozzy open, i say 6'4 though.
Big dude taller than andy murray who is listed at 6'3
TylerDurden said on 10/Mar/07
im from russia, on his unofficial page he is 193(6'4") and 88.6 kilogram
full name: Marat Mihailovich Safin :)
Masato said on 17/Jan/07
In the australian open 2007 interview, Marat said his own height was 1.95. Making him 6'4'' and 3/4. He sure looks that height to me.
Anonymous said on 12/Jan/07
The commentators all call him 6'5", even though he is listed as 6'4", so I figure he is somewhere in between there.
said on 8/Jan/07
Scroll down a little. There is Marat with Sergey Stakhovsky (right) and some other guy on left, whose name I've been trying to remember for an hour and still can't find out it, in massage room, so I think they're all barefoot. Marat looks 2 inches taller than Stakhovsky, who is on Click Here
listed at 6'4.
Viper said on 7/Jan/07
I wonder how much the ground slopes in that picture, because he really does look no taller than 6-2 there.
MrBlazy said on 7/Jan/07
Im a legit 6'4" and alot of people often think im taller than that (which i am with shoes on).
St Andrews said on 17/Dec/06
I saw him in Cincinnati in a shopping mall with his coach during the Cincinnati ATP tournament. I was only a couple of feet away from him. He was definetely taller than 6'4". I am more than positive that he is 6'5" and there abouts.
Jason said on 20/Nov/06
It would have been changed by now if he'd grown.
Aussie Bloke said on 19/Nov/06
Compared to Lleyton Hewitt, I would have to say around 6ft5. He's surely grown since he won the US open back in '00, and his height has not been changed for over 5 years
Anonymous said on 3/Nov/06
He's often described as 6'5". I'd put him at 6'4" 1/2.
Viper652 said on 26/Sep/06
It seems like Tennis heights are fairly legit for the most part.
filippo said on 25/Sep/06
I saw two times marat in person and he is surly not shorter than 6'4''..i'm 6'1''(185cm) and he was at least 10cm taller than me.Safin is on ATP circuit from 1997 when he was 17 and his height on ATP tennis site is not changed from that time.Probably he is now at least 1 inch taller! I'm sure
weekly said on 25/Sep/06
I think Pistol is 6'0 because of his slouching and Andre max. 5'10.75 (180 cm)
ATPtennis says 6'4, but the question is if they indicate true heights or exaggerated like in almost every other sport.
Jason said on 16/Sep/06
Exactly. A real 6'4'' is 6'6'' to most people.
Viper652 said on 15/Sep/06
A legit 6-4 guy will look taller to a lot of people.
Viper652 said on 12/Sep/06
Id go with the 6-4 official height.
Anon said on 12/Sep/06
People in the tennis world (Agassi, McEnroe, Brad Gilbert) all call him 6-5. He's probably in the middle somewhere.
Viper652 said on 12/Sep/06
He looks 6-4 in those other pics. Strange how he only looks 6-2 on this page.
weekly said on 11/Aug/06
Dmitry Tursunov described him as " two-meter embodiment of a female’s dream".
r said on 14/Jul/06
i met safin before and he is very tall. i agree with 6'5. probably 6'6 in tennis shoes. tall guy and definitely looks it in person.
Jason said on 17/Jun/06
I can't open the pic with Federer for some reason, but the pic with Carlos Moya is on an angle (look at the left tilt of everything in the background) which makes Safin appear taller than he is against Moya.
Jason said on 13/Jun/06
Looks closer to 9 than 10-12 to me even in that pic man, but you may disagree. Thanks for filling me in on who the commentator is, I don't know my tennis that well! :) 184cm for those not familiar with metric is 6'0 1/2''.
Jason said on 12/Jun/06
I remember a 184cm commentator (former tennis player) interviewing him after he won the Australian Open in January 2005 and he looked no more than 9cm taller.
weekly said on 12/Jun/06
I remember a newspaper's article 6 years ago where he was described as 195 cm. Though the title was "2-metres-cannon".
filippo said on 11/Jun/06
in this pic there is an evident slope of the ground. I'm 185cm(6'1'')and when i met him last year in rome he was at least 10cm taller than me!he is very tall...i'm sure that he is 6'5''at least.
Viper652 said on 11/Jun/06
He doesnt look 6-4 in the pic.
Jason said on 9/Jun/06
Philippoussis isn't 6'5'' man, he's officially listed at 193cm, which is smack bang on 6'4''. Knowing how some tennis heights are exaggerated though, he could very well be more like 191-192cm. Marat Safin's listing is legit, though. He is every bit of 6'4'', but he really doesn't look over it.
Kevin said on 8/Jun/06
I saw safin this year in miami in a double match with 6'5 mark philippoussis, and marat was 2cm taller!he's 6'5-6'6 for me
tiburon said on 4/Jun/06
I saw him in a shopping mall during Cincinnati Masters 2005. He looked taller much than 6'4''.... I say he is legitimate 6'5" or more.
Jake said on 29/Apr/06
He doesn't look 6'4" in the picture.
Patricia said on 24/Apr/06
He is definitely 6'4" if not a little bit taller. I've met him and he's one tall guy.
ds said on 27/Mar/06
A true 6'4" should seem VERY tall.
filippo said on 20/Feb/06
I met marat in rome last year..he is taller than 6'4",for me he is surly 6'5".
ds said on 11/Feb/06
Actually yeah I think Hewitt is 177cm not shorter, and judging from pics Marat is his his height, not 6'5".
RLG said on 6/Feb/06
A fan of Marat told me that Marat himself has said both 195cm and 196cm, which are slightly below and above 6'5".
ds said on 30/Jan/06
haha I met Hewitt he's like 176 cm maybe 177cm. I also met Martina Hingis who's like 167 cm maybe 168, making Kournikova also shorter...
Jason said on 16/Jan/06
Always thought Safin's 6'4''. Hewitt's height here is wrong though, yeah he's listed as 5'11'' ... but his real height is about 5'9 1/2''.
316 said on 14/Jan/06
He does look a solid 6'4 guy to me.
