Taylor Townsend looks a lot bigger built than Serena! She could snap Serena in 2 with ease! It's weird seeing Serena stood next to someone who actually makes her look skinny.
Pierric says on 8/Jul/14
It's strange she was listed at 161 lbs during games in 2012...

The 2 German amazons Sabine Lisciki (5'11. 154 lbs) and Angelique Kerber (5'8", 160 lbs) are as powerful as Serena. Infact Angelique has huge legs that are way thicker than Serena and Sabine is just as thick as Serena. Wonder what these German girls do to develop such strong legs. Inface Angelique's arms are alsmost as thick as Sharapova's legs

@tiny, @Peter Gregory: here is the official wta website listed Caroline Wozniacki player's profile as being 5'10"

tiny says on 18/Jun/14
@Mina: Wozniaki is not an inch over 5'8", dont know where the 5'10" for her came from. The pic you have posted gives a nice comparison of Serena's massive upper body with another athlete's. I'm guessing Wozniaki's weight as 155 lbs compared to Serena's 185 lbs
Peter Gregory says on 4/Jun/14
She say 5'8
mina says on 1/Jun/14
She is not 5'9". Here's a picture of her and Caroline Wozniacki (listed as 5'10") taken this week a few days after her 2nd round loss. From that picture she looks about 2 inches taller than Caroline. So I would think that she is almost 6 feet tall.

tiny says on 29/May/14
Guess her lack of fitness was the reason for the 2nd round loss. Earlier also she always looked huge when compared to the other girls but was fitter than all of them. Now without the fitness the extra size and strenght are nullified. The girl who beat her is the 20 yr old Spaniard Garbine Muguruza who is 6'0" & 170 lbs and is surprisingly tall and well buil tfor a spaniard
tiny says on 26/May/14
Serena is at her biggest at the French Open. She looks absolutely huge, dont know if its her clothes or she has really piled on the muscle. She is easily in the 185 - 190lbs range. Looks like her lower body alone weighs as much as the whole of Maria Sharapova
hwood34 says on 24/May/14
There is no way she is her listed weight. Her legs combined weigh 135
SAK says on 19/May/14
Compared to general public she is tall. Compared to other female tennis players she is average.
Azarenka(6f0), Kvitova(6f0) and Sharapova(6f1.5) are tall girls. Not being overly tall has helped Serena in the movement and athleticism department on top of being highly skilled and powerful.
Dom says on 30/Apr/14
she's at the very minimum 5'10 but she looks closer to 5'10,5"
tiny says on 27/Apr/14
@Ria: Serena has a nice height but what she is noticed for is her huge muscular physique with those tree trunk like legs, big butt and wide as a barn door shoulders
Ria says on 23/Feb/14
I think Serena Williams has a nice height. :)
tiny says on 25/Jan/14
Sloane Stephens is defnitely the next Serena Williams. Not only does she have the powerful game that Serena has but she has the same body with huge muscular shoulders and thick arms.
tiny says on 10/Jan/14
@Sheryl: Sharapova is about 5" taller than Serena and much thinner everywhere so she is a twig compared Serena. Those tree trunk like legs of Serena with that huge rack weigh as much as the whole of Sharapova.
Sheryl says on 3/Jan/14
They are both lying! Sharapova looks like shes a twig today so that would make her about 75 pounds?!
tiny says on 30/Dec/13
Was watchign Sloane Stephens play in the Hopmans Cup and she is just a spitting image of Serena Williams. Like Serena she has huge muscular shoulders and arms and is just as powerful in the upper body. Its just in the lower body where Serena is stronger with her tree trunk like legs. Guess as Sloane gets older she will become be bigger than Serena. As is their habit the WTA has listed Sloane at 135 lbs and this is a joke just as Serena's listing of 145 lbs. I guess that if anything Sloane is just about 10 lbs lighter than Serena and that would make her atleast 170 compared to serena;s 180.
tiny says on 24/Dec/13
Is there a pic of Taylor Townsend with Maria Sharapova anywhere on the net? Would love to see one as Maria would tower over Taylor but with her superior strenght taylor could snap Maria into two.
tiny says on 11/Dec/13
@Swtt: Nice comparison pic. Serena certainly looks tiny next to Taylor Townsend who is listed at 5'6" & 170 lbs. Guess since Serena is about 4" taller she and Taylor both weigh about the same. However I am sure taylor will only get taller, bigger and stronger so she is going to be the next big thing (pun unintended) in womens tennis
Swtt says on 2/Dec/13
This is Serena looking tiny next to 17 year old Taylor Townsend!! Serena seems to be getting skinnier!! Taylor will only get bigger lol. Click Here

Height one the spot once again.But stating her weight at 70kg is the funniest joke.77-79kg pherphs.Despite she is the one right now, 20+ slams is a lock.
Dom says on 6/Nov/13
She's not under 5'10, might be a little more, she's almost the same height as Azarenka who's about 6'0
tiny says on 23/Oct/13
@Christopher: Yes Serena does have broad shoulders and a small waist for a girl her build which gives her the V shape of a swimmer but that is where the comparison with a swimmers body stops. Infact there are many swimmers on the US Olympic team with shoulders broader than Serena bu these girls are all over 6 ft tall and not as muscular as Serena. All these girls weigh between 170 & 190 lbs so I guess Serena should atleast weight as much as 190
Christopher says on 6/Oct/13

see picture (url, above)

Serena is listed (on the WTA) as being 5 foot 9",
Jankovic is listed as 5 foot 9 1/2
....
now, i watched Serena and JJ very closely during the presentation ceremony
and Serena* looks at least an inch (almost two, i would say) taller
than Jankovic... which would make her (approximately) 5 foot 10 1/2....

That was (i promise you) the height that Serena was listed at, back
in 2000, 2001 - before she (quite mysteriously) 'lost' an inch, circa
2003...

you could (til fairly recently) find archived SI and WTA webpages
(from 2000, 2001), in which Serena's was height listed at 5 foot 10
1/2, too...

* regardless of the mane of hair etc.

--------------------------------
Just as a personal aside, I have seen her close-up (being at tennis tournaments etc.) and Serena really does not look 5 ft 9 to me. Obviously, that is a perceptual thing but still... Also, i have seen lots of tennis players and
Serena really isn't especially 'big' or 'muscular' etc.
i can think of several female players have more developed muscles etc. etc. - they just aren't as famous, in the public imagination.... Physically, she has broad shoulders and narrow-ish waist. A swimmer-kind of build, really.
Zico says on 27/Sep/13
Serena is as tall as Azarenka, I can't link a pic search for her when she's collecting her medals for 2012 olympics and you'll see she is the same height
Sean73 says on 15/Sep/13
5'9.5",175lbs.
tiny says on 9/Sep/13
guess Azarenka's recently added power and weight are still not enough to challange Serena. Azarenka is abt 3" taller than Serena and both are about 180 lbs but guess serena is just more muscular and powerful
guru says on 8/Sep/13
Lets get real here...Serena is over 200 lbs easy, not that it really matters..I am the same height as her, and her legs are three times as thick, her arms are double mine, and she has breasts too..
avi says on 8/Sep/13
A lot of the huge comments refer to her muscular build not height. She's probably barely 5'9 and weighs 170-180
tiny says on 6/Sep/13
@MD: there are a lot of folks here who say that Serena is huge. My posts are to prove that there are girls who are bigger than Serena
tiny says on 4/Sep/13
Victoria Azarenka has gained a lot of weight and looks huge now. Was shocked to see her at the US Open. Luckily her extra weight has made her more powerful and not sluggish. She was a healthy 160 lbs earlier but now I think is closer to 180 lbs.
tiny says on 3/Sep/13
Is Sloane Stephens the next Serena? Her upper body (shoulders, arms & back) are as muscular as Serena's but Serena has more powerful legs. Sloane is only 20 so she will only get more muscular & powerful. Guess in another 2 yeras she will be as strong as serena specially since serena isnt getting any younger.

Check out these 2 lovely pics of the 6'5", 267 lbs amazon Valerie Adams. Now she is who you can call huge and not Serena.
neve says on 11/Aug/13
Serena is neither the tallest nor the heaviest person on the WTA tour. To me, another black woman she looks perfectly normal, so it always confuses me to hear people say how 'big' or 'powerful' she looks, when other women on the tour look just as big and powerful to me. Seems to me something else makes her look bigger to some.
Height 5'9" weight 150-155 lb

In the pic is the 6'4", 210 lb (95 Kg) German Discus thrower Julia Fischer who is aged just 23. Serena is nowhere as strong as this amazonian german youngster and I am sure Julia is only going to get bigger & stronger as she gets older

Check out this couple who have to be the biggest in the sporting world. He is Robert Harting (6'7" & 280 lbs) the world & olympic champion in discus. She is his girlfriend Julia Fischer (6'4" & 210 lbs) the under 23 world champion in women's discus.
LatinoHeat says on 6/Jul/13
Serena is minimum 5'10"....stood next to her at LAX. Very muscular (probably weighs 190-200lbs, but 100% solid)
tiny says on 1/Jul/13
@silent d: hard to believe that Serena weighs only 2 kgs more that Azarenka. Yes Azarenka (6'0") & Sharapova (6'2") are taller than the 5'9" Serena but considering how muscular serena is I am sure she weighs atleast 85 kgs compared to Azarenka & Sharapova who weigh about 75 kgs
Silent d says on 26/Jun/13
Tiny venus is 6 foot 1 and serena is 176cm. Someone on sharapova's pg said serena was 88kg and azarenka was 80kg. I think serena is about 82kg and azarenka is about 80kg. Serena just looks huge because if she was taller, it won't look like she is built like a tank. 176cm.
K says on 23/Jun/13
Both Serena Williams and Valerie Vili show that you can't judge fitness by weight, alone. Both athletes are in much better shape than millions of young women who have the "right" weight for their height. Women vary in musculature and bone thickness just like men do.
tiny says on 19/Jun/13
Was watching a rerun of the Olympic Doubles Final where Venus & serena were playing against a Czech team and tho the czech girls were tall & big (both about 5'10" & 160 lbs) they were made to look tiny when they stood with the Williams sisters. Serena at 5'10" is about 4 shorter than the 6'2" Venus but she looks huge with her broad shoulders and thick arms & legs when compared to Venus who is also muscular but thinner. Serena would be about 185 lbs & venu sabout 180 lbs. Quite an intimidating pair of women.
anon says on 13/Jun/13
Valerie Vili is indeed a woman of amazonic proportions, just scroll down on the link posted and check out this pic: Click Here
The girl next to Valerie Vili is the American sprinter Allyson Felix who is 5'6" & 125 lbs and she looks like a small school girl compared to Valerie Vili.
tiny says on 13/Jun/13
Serena is neither a giant nor an amazon, she is just tall, well built, muscular woman. The only giant / amazon in the world of sport is Valerie Vili the World & Olympic Shot Put Champion from New Zealand. Valerie Vili is 6'5" & weighs 267 lbs with massive shoulders and tree trunk like legs. Other shot putters who are usually very big girls appear tiny when they stand next to Valerie Vili so you can imagine how she woul dcompare next to a normal woman or for that matter even a normal man.
anon says on 9/Jun/13
What an amazing size comparison between Serena Williams and Sara Errani. Even though Errani at 132 lbs is well built for her 5'4" frame, Serena looked like a giant next to her. The Indian tennis player Sania Mirza who is a big girl at 5'8" & 154 lbs once said that she was shocked at how huge Serena looked across the net. So I guess it is safe too say that Serena is easily atleast a minimum of 175 lbs
tiny says on 7/Jun/13
Thank god the WTA has chosen to change Serena's listed weight to 154 lbs. Earlier she was listed at 132 lbs which is the same weight as the 5'4" Sara Errani who Serena just devoured in the French Open Semi Final. Personally I feel Serena is closer to 175 lbs considering her huge frame with those thick legs and broad shoulders.
Bionic46 says on 6/Jun/13
Serena weights at least 185 lbs! 155 what a joke!!
tiny says on 3/Jun/13
Wishing for a Serena v/s Azarenka final at the French Open as Azarenka has added some muscle onto her 6'0" frame and is the only girl who can give Serena a fight.
little sue says on 30/May/13
If she is freaky what does it make Venus?? at least she has 'tits and ass' and still be strong and muscular, unlike a lot of athletes who loose their shape when they work out too mucyh.
Dom says on 21/May/13
She's built like the hulk and kind of acts like that too sometimes.. 5'9,5" at least
tiny says on 13/May/13
Serena overpowers Maria Sharapova again, makes it 12-0 in meetings since 2004. There has never been a more dominating and physically superior No 1 in women's tennis when compared to the No 2 player. Unless Maria adds some muscle to her super skinny 6'2" frame there is no way she is goin to beat Serena
tiny says on 8/Apr/13
Serena seems to be only getting better and stronger with age. She was always muscular and huge compared to the other girls but nowadays this fact is even more visible. Just the other day in the family circle cup final she was standing with Jelena Jankovic who is the same height as Serena but serena looked so huge next to Jankovic. Serena's shoulders are broader then most men's shoulders
nona says on 8/Apr/13
Serena is dominating her older, taller sister quite easily. Despite venus at 6'2" enjoying a 5" height advantage she has never managed to dominate Serena except early on in Serena's career. Guess Serena is way too powerful for even her own sister, so god save the other girls who are so tiny compared to these 2 amazons.
Dennis says on 3/Apr/13
I saw Serena as she came out of the Eastbourne tennis tournament in 2012. I was standing a couple of meters away from her whilst a crowd of people surrounded her. I'm exactly 5 ft 8 (5 ft 8.5 when in the morning) and she seemed 1-1.5 inches taller than me - she is particularly imposing due to her musculature. That would confirm that she is indeed 5 ft 9 ( and almost, if not, 5 ft 10). However, I do remember her mentioning during an interview that before each match she heavily wraps her feet in bandages for protection. This, along with her trainers/sneakers, could potentially add a slight 0.5 inch or so.
nona says on 11/Mar/13
The only girl amongst the current top ones who is close to Serena in strength is Petra Kvitova who at 6'1" & 85 kgs with broad shoulders and muscular arms. Where Serena is superior is her core which is rock hard compared to Kvitova's jelly belly
SAK says on 27/Jan/13
Azarenka on wiki gets listed as 6ft. But next to 5f9/75 Serena, Azarenka does not look 3" taller.

JoeMike says on 15/Jan/13
Girls weight is extremely different then the weight of a male...so to the dude that said she is easily 200 pounds, time to learn a little bit lol she is in the area of 150-160
SAK says on 7/Jan/13
Wta is not good reference for height listings. Serena is 5f9, and when playing the final of Brisbane 2013, was taking photos with Pavlyuchenkova (who is listed as 5f10). But she looked a good inch shorter then Serena. So in actual fact P'chenkova is more like 5f8.
nona says on 26/Nov/12
The strongest female athlete in the world will have serena nowhere in the comparison. This would be between Valerie Adams (6'5" & 267 lbs) the Olympic & World Shot Put Champion from New Zealand and Gaby Garcia (6'4" & 236 lbs) the Jiu Jitsu champion from Brazil. Both these girls are amazonian in build and real towers of power
tiny says on 16/Nov/12
there is a pic of Serena, Venus & Eva Longoria on the web and the 5'0", 100 lb Eva looks like a small school girl next to the 2 amazonian Williams sisters. Serena is so broad compared to Eva that she can easily carry the tiny Eva and place her on her huge hips
nona says on 14/Nov/12
Valerie Adams (6'5" & 267 lbs) can easily bench press the tiny Serena Williams (5'9" & 180 lbs0
little sue says on 10/Nov/12
"A physique most men would be proud of", lol, is that including the DD breasts, Serena has a great physique has she has kept her boobs and bum while being strong and muscular.
Copnovelist195 says on 9/Nov/12
Serena walked past me at the Eastbourne tournament and believe me, she's at least 5ft10. For many years her weight was listed at 135lbs; that must have been when she was 11 or 12 years old. A male friend of mine who is a flabby 200 pounds and a little shorter, looks about the same size. When you think muscle weighs a lot more than flab, she's quite easily over 200 pounds. She's got a physique most men would be proud of. Sorry if this sounds ungallant. For years, I was skeptical, but as a seasoned tennis player and watcher, she IS the greatest of all time.
tiny says on 6/Nov/12
Nica pic nona, Serena's calves look as big as Maria's thighs. Also those hips of Serena's are so curvaceous that the other girls look quite boyish.

For all folks saying serena is tall, big, muscular etc please take a look at Valerie Adams the shot put gold medallist at London 2012. Serena will look tiny next to the 6'5", 267 lb Valerie Adams. I had the chance to see Valerie Adams up close during the commonwealth games in India and she looked bigger & stronger than 95% of the Indian men
nona says on 10/Oct/12
SAK - Yes Serena is amongst the shorter female tennis players and since she is so broad and muscular she looks even shorter when compared to the tall & lean types like Maria Sharapova or Viktoriya Azarenka.
SAK says on 3/Oct/12
@ truth-b-told, I don't think Serena won 14 Slams with "a few good shots". She is a complete player.

standing @ 5f9 she is actually one of the shorter female players among the eilte.
anon says on 24/Sep/12
Agreed that Serena is larger than most men her height but then most 5'10" men except the overweight ones do not weight 200 to 215 lbs and serena is by no means overweight, she is just extremely muscular. forget Martina Hingis even a healthy 5'10" girl will look tiny next to serena
truth-b-told says on 19/Sep/12
Look at Serena and Martina Hingis who is 5'6.5, so Serena is about 5'10, also Serena is easily 200 to 215 average and anyone who believes she is 175lbs must be smoking something. She is larger then all the men at the same height, so why are so many people claiming she is a great athlete. She is a power player with only a few good shots.
anon says on 10/Sep/12
Was quite amazed at the fight the skinny Azarenka put up against the muscular Serena
123elle says on 9/Sep/12
When I broke 5'10," I was crushed. I thought I was some kind of biological mistake. Little did I know I would come to treasure every millimeter --- and my dauhter is even taller and loves her height. Being tall has been a blast --- not only is it an advantage at work, where I am on eye level or near it with the men, but I feel lanky anf fasnionable when I'm dressed up in my 3 inch heels. If only I'd known all this when I was 13 and growing like a weed. I was teased mercilessly and was too shy to show my athletic skills because it was "unfeminine." Well, that was last generation! But I've come to believe now that there's beauty in every height, tall or petite, as long as you take pride in your body and nourish, exercise and feed it like the great gift it is.
Gyner says on 7/Sep/12
Didn't. Serena use to be a male? Born will the name Dennis?
anon says on 5/Sep/12
As muscular as she is serena at 0nly 5'9" & 190 lbs would look like a tiny schoolgirl next to Valerie Adams the Olympic Shot Put Champion from New Zealand. Valerie Adams is 6'5" & 267 lbs of sheer muscle whose shoulders. arms & legs are huge compared to Serena
nona says on 27/Aug/12
Guess like the Dutch can boast of having the tallest women Nigeria can boast of having the strongest women. It's amzing how big the girl sin Nigeria are. On an average they stand about 5'8" & weigh close to 175 lbs. The biggest girl I have met when i was in nigeria was 6'2" & 220 lbs of solid muscle
nona says on 25/Aug/12
Cryss: U r bang on target. The similarity in the physiques of Serena and Anowa Adjah is amazing. Considering Anowa is also 5'10" & 200 lbs guess Serena is atleast 190lbs as she is not a fitness pro but a tennis player
Cryss says on 4/Aug/12
She could very well be 200 or more. She's extremely built and I suggest you all look up Anowa Adjah "The Nigerian Powerhouse" She's a personal trainer and very VERY similarly put together like Serena. Whatever her weight she looks awesome!

I watched the match between Serena and Ekaterina Makarova and Serena is noticeably shorter than Ekaterina, who's listed as 5ft11. So Serena is at best 5ft8.

Makarova is 5ft11.5 @ worst, maybe full 6ft.
