List him 6'1 7/8in
I wouldn't be that exact. I think it would creep out a few visitors.

I see 2.5"-3" inches.

In the photos of the two togethers, he's like 4 CM taller than Henrik Lundqvist iwho I thought was 186-188 CM, but he appears to be more 184 CM in photos by 6'0"-6'3" guys.

How is that reasonable on a website where the smallest division we deal with is the quarter-inch or centimeter?

Murray coming in at almost 6ft2...just bad news.
Josh said on 3/Jun/15
The thing about morning height is a large sum is lost quickly and after a few hours you are down near your low I find. This could only really matter if someone was measured like within an hour of rising (Early morning doctor app.t, or like an NBA draft measurement done shortly out of bed which I suspect with some of them)

Otherwise, one is likely to be within 1/4 of an inch of their low after just a few hours and after like 6 I think at it or within 1/8 of an inch.

So, claiming morning height is BS I think because you lose it so quickly, although it is an important thing to be aware of...Also LOL at Glenn saying he's 5'8 morning and that should count because he rises later or some nonsense (When he was probably 5'7.5 out of bed anyway LOL)

So Murray's "wiggle room" I think is like 6'1.8-6'2

Most doctors seem to know about morning height; however, I think most underestimate the difference. Even people(not just doctors) who knew about morning height don't believe me when I tell them some people can vary by a full inch(and rarely, even more for people over 6 feet) but it's a shame a doctor is completely unaware if it!
Rifle said on 19/May/15
Do you think John Isner is a legit 6-10?
[Editor Rob: yeah I think he would measure it]
Andrea said on 17/May/15
Yeah, it would much more simple if we had just "one height"! You measure a mark and that's it, but most of the people don't even know about this difference! I was reading some kind of medical forum a couple of days ago, where you ask something and doctors answer your question... This guy said he read somewhere that in the morning we're all taller and the doctor said he never heard about it, he almost got angry thinking it was some kind of BS when the guy insisted he heard that thing in more than one place! I mean, a doctor wasn't aware about that!!!
[Editor Rob: keep that Doctor away from me! He'd probably put a thermometer in your ear and tell you you're about to have a heart attack!]
Andrea said on 17/May/15
Yeah, 187.5 might be his low but i doubt he got that measurement after a long match or a training session so that's likely not an absolute low! Same thing with Ibra, who might be a guy who normally measures between 194 and 195! If those two guys would met each other, would you expect a "typical" 7 cms difference, right? Also, do you think Andy might be similar to the plumber? So, 187-188 on a normal day and a smidge under 187 after a long match (after a long day of work in the plumber's case)?
[Editor Rob: morning/evening and absolute low's definitely can throw things off. But it wouldn't be wrong really to put Andy at 6ft 1.75, it is maybe his low mark though...after a tennis match he well be 187cm on the nose.

Yes Andy probably would be similar to the plumber, I'm sure both would get 188 earlier in the day.
Andrea said on 15/May/15
Rob, isn't 187.5 closer to 6'1.75? Why not listing him at that? After all, you also listed Ibra at 6'4.5 even if he got measured a fraction above that mark...
[Editor Rob:
I don't know the time Murray was measured but from what I've seen of him I think it is more likely a low mark, he can typically look around 6ft 2. 6ft 1.75 might be an absolute low.
The same with Ibra - that isn't an evening measurement, it's during a working day so he could still shrink another fraction and go below 6ft 4.5, so like Andy the 6ft 4.5 is ok I feel.]

Vibram says on 26/Nov/14
He is 187cm or 6ft1.75. He wasn't much taller than 184cm David Cameron, nor does he 'tower' 178/179cm Jimmy Carr, and doesn't look more than 1 inch over 6ft1 Tim Henman either. Click Here Click Here

Just lol AT THE 190CM CLAIMS... yeah with his trainers on perhaps.

How is that LOL?? Honestly I think most of the time he could pass for a legit 190cm. He has that long bone structure of a guy at least 6'3". He gets it from his mother I think who looks tough as nails and looks like she has the frame of a 5 ft 10 woman but is apparently only about 5 ft 5 or 6.
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 19/Apr/15
I believe his 187.5 CM claim. If anything, he seems to be the type of guy who would claim to be 6'3" if he were 187 CM. Just because one appears to be tall on screen doesn't make them that height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Apr/15
That 187.5cm is a strange one, alright.

Rob, does that put Djokovic closer to 186cm?
[Editor Rob: I don't think there really is much between those guys, but I'm sure Murray was measured at that mark himself.

But it is no surprise, there are many fake 6ft 2er's who daren't stand next to Murray.]
pierric. said on 24/Feb/15
No Murray's height is not more 188, 187.5 seems good. Dkokovic seems only 1 cm smaller, federer 1 inch smaller, Nadal around 4 cms smaller. That's great to know a player who's very honest. That's cool to make some good comparaisons with other ones...
So Federer 185
Nadal 184
Wawrinka 183
Djokovic 186-187
Berdych 194
Raonic 192-193 (looks a bit smaller than Berdych)
Ferrer 175
Gasquet 181-182
Dimitrov 187
Fognini 178...
Tunman said on 13/Feb/15
187,5 could be his absolute lowest so 6'2 is fine.
Would be interesting if all players gave such honest claims we would have some surprises for sure
Btw since he was listed 6'2.5 for a while on this site I'm assuming Rob based his guess on other players
pierric. said on 29/Jan/15
Murray 187-188, so Federer 185, Nadal 184, Djokovic 186-187, Wawrinka 183, Berdych 194-195.
Celebheights 188 CM said on 1/Jan/15
He's the same Will Ferrell who appeared 3 CM taller than Novak Djokovic, but was shorter than 6'1.25" Roger Federer and 6'1" Cristiano Ronaldo in photos. So Andy Murray is two inches taller than Novak Djokovic then?

Murray Looks 6'2.5 max and 6'2 mimimum in my opinion, I think that is fair for him
chris said on 9/Nov/14
Murray has more footwear of course a previos poster did say that but Andy looked at least Inch over him how much footwear advantage do you think Murray had on Ferrell and discount that, dont forget Will Ferrell is listed at 6'3 and the lowest most would see him at is 189cm, If he is taller than Murray its barely anything at all
callum said on 8/Nov/14
187.5cm is a very honest claim then Rob and must be his absolute lowest because he even looks taller than Will Ferrell for sure he is a legit 6'2 guy, I think he must have been measured after a long day training to measure 187.5cm.

He Looks 6ft2- 6ft3 generally, be intesting if you met him in person Rob,safe to say he is clearly 6ft2
[Editor Rob: there's a noticeable footwear advantage with andy and will, but will in last 2 years has begun to look shorter, maybe he's not quite as tall as he once was.]
tim said on 7/Nov/14
Rob, Is Murray underbilling himself a little, I have seen several evidence here and It is clear he is a little bit taller than Djokovic and I think your listing for Him at 6'1.75 is spot on, He looks around 6'2 or close to it, Murray looks closer to 6'2.5, he said his height as 6'3 in shoes recently so not sure if atp measured him in shoes, I would have guessed Murray at 6'2.25- 6'2.5?
[Editor Rob: to come out with such a specific figure would suggest he's been measured at that mark before. It might be what you could say was his low height though and he's just being honest.]
lee said on 30/Oct/14
I would have always said 189 over 188 for Murray anyway, Still think he might be 6'2.5 Looks bit taller than Djokovic and Dimitrov, Dimitrov is listed 6'3 now but he is about 6'2 same as Djokovic, Murray always looks a bit taller than Novak and Novak does look like a 6'2 guy now way is he under 187cm
ray said on 28/Oct/14
Hi Rob, Have you seen the interview with Will Ferrell and Murray, Andy looks a good Inch taller, Ferrell had thinnish shoes on and Murray had his trainers on but still discounting footwear, Murray is not shorter than Ferrell and unless Will Ferrell is 6'2 max, there is a decent chance Murray is still above a flat 6'2.

I am not sure on Murray- I think he could be 6'2.5, for sure this 187.5cm must be his absolute low after long day traning because he does look taller than most guys I have seen listed in the 187-188cm range Like Novak Djokovic for example
littlesue said on 29/Sep/14
Arch I always thought she was about 5ft 7 buT watching her on Strictly I would say about 5ft 5. She certainly skinny so gives that taller appearance. Tallest woman celebs this year are Allison Hammond who is about 5ft 9 and Mrs Browns Boys wife who is about the same
Arch Stanton said on 28/Sep/14
Rob how tall would you guess Judy Murray to be? You probably wouldn't think she's worth adding, but I've seen her in the tabloids a few bit of late with the dancing show and all that. She can look as low as 5 ft 5 Click Here and as high as 5'7 range at times. She's skinny with angular features and bone structure though which can give the illusion of being taller. My initial though was that she's tallish at at least 5'7" but I think somewhere in 5'5" range might be more accurate, she's within average range I think.
[Editor Rob: actually Jenny has this strictly be fair when Pixie or Caroline where dancing I kinda paid attention, maybe not so much with Judy, but I did see the rehearsal bit with Anton and would say 5ft 5 is a good shout for her.]
James B said on 12/Sep/14
He made will Ferrell look a flat 6'1.
jordydecke said on 8/Sep/14
This is a bit of a second-hand story, but a guy at my work always has passes for Wimbledon due to family connections and he met Andy Murray. My workmate is about 6'4 and very proud of his height, he said that in roughly the same footwear there wasn't much difference between him and Murray - he estimated Murray to be around about 6'2 3/4 and possibly '6'3 at a push'.

Andy Murray's height is 6ft 2.5in (189 cm)

6ft 2 is low for him looks nearer 6ft 3 189 is a better fit.
max said on 4/Aug/14
Murray had alive q and a recently in scotland and one of the questions was height realted and Sue Barker said What are you Andy like 6'4 and he replied I am 6'3 in shoes so his legit 6'2 claim must be about right, He must have measured 6'3 in shoes so he could be 6'2.25 or something
kevin said on 1/Aug/14
Novak is 187cm minimum, He has around an Inch on Federer if we look at wimbledon final etc lets assume Federer is 185 at worst hec could be 185- 186, Novak must be around a weak 6'2 at worst- Murray I think is close to around 6'2.5 could be 189cm I still think he is a little more than 6'2 flat.

Its strange because Andy for sure looks taller than Djokovic by at least 0.5 inch you can tell the difference so its more than 0.25 inch and is bigger than Roddick, Tsonga and all these guys must be at least 6'1.5/6'1.75 they all have at least 0.5 on Federer who most people would say is a legit 6'1.

Funny but now I know his height he looks more 6'2" on court than 6'3" LOL.. I compared him yesterday to the 6 ft 8 listed South African player Anderson and he really did look about 6 inches shorter. I think that Anderson guy is probably 6'7.5-6'8" legit.
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 25/Jun/14
@Seahawksfan 187-188 CM
187.5 cm equates to 6'1.82". He's given his exact height to the nearest millimetre. If you want to round down that's your business. Murray is definitely a 6'2" man.
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 19/Jun/14
@Seahawksfan 187-188 CM
At no point (that we know of) has he claimed 6'1.75". Also, why are you so surprised that sports height listings are inflated?

It is likely actually that he got measured at around 6'3" in tennis shoes and that is why he's listed at 6 ft 3.

Seriously? Andy's hair is fooling you. They look extremely close in height in that shot if he really look where the top of Djok's head is and remove Andy's hair to the skull.

He must have been measured at that height. The ATP listing is not necessarily accurate at all, some of them have been as much as 2" out from my recollection.

Andy Murray is 187.5 cm. He said this himself when asked on 'askAndy twitter Q&A'. He is just under 6'2". This means some of the other top players listed heights ( atp listed ) are slight exaggerations, or including shoes. I believe Andy to be this exact height - it is what he looks and good on him for telling it like it really is. Good luck in the french open Andy.

where do you see an inch and half between Federer and Murray?? 6'2 flat is fine i think for Murray.
Juan Z said on 1/Apr/14
If Murray is 6´2, Then:

Djokovic 6´1.5 (186 cm)?
Federer 6´0.5 (184 cm)?
Nadal 5´11.5? (182 cm)?

In 2009 or 2010, in an argentine tv show, Del Potro said he is 197 cm (6´5.5 ft)
Balrog said on 31/Mar/14
I think I've said it before but I met Del Potro and was 5in taller than me, solid 6'6" if not 6'6.25".
Arch Stanton said on 30/Mar/14
Does actually look 6'2" flat here Click Here Del Portro has to be a legit 6'6 guy. he makes him and Roger look quite short here!
Ron said on 24/Mar/14
Huge tennis buff here..Went to Indian Wells first couple rounds. Saw all the top guys there up close..all wearing basically equal tennis shoes and I was wearing similar height Nike's that give a little over inch so easy to tell. I'm 6'1 helping even more. Murray is in fact a weak 6'2 his 187.5 sounds accurate. He looks taller cuz of a gangly limby structure even with his added muscle. Novak is over 6'1 but not 6'2. Pushing 187 probably 186.5 fully compressed but I'd give him 187 if Murray's at 188. Federers a weak 6'1. 185. 186 is too much. The diff btwn him and Novak is clearly more than between Andy and Novak. Rafa is 183. Same diff between him and Fed as between Fed and Novak...a little less than an inch.

187.5cm = 6' 1.8188976377952741"

This is closer to 6'1.75 than 6'2. You should put him at that.

@anonymous says on 14/Feb/14

If Federer is 6'1.25 then Murray at 6'2 is fine. could he be 6'2.1 or .2. sure but 6'3 is out of the question as is a legit 6'2.5
avi said on 7/Feb/14
@anon says on 15/Jan/14

no hes probably a strong 6'2 you have it stuck in your head he is close to 6'3. 6'3 may have been a morning height or a bump up from 6'2.25 which is the most i think he is. if he is 6'2.5-6'2.75 Federer is 6'1.75 and he just isnt.

@ Arch Stanton
yeah he looks 6'2.5-6'3ish but next to 6'1 and change Federer he looks at best a weak 6'2.
Arch Stanton said on 2/Feb/14
That's better. Ha his face looks like thunder in that photo, must have been taken shortly after he was informed that he wasn't 6'3!!
Arch Stanton said on 1/Feb/14
Rob you may as well take away the 188cm olympics link, the page is no longer there.

Arch Stanton said on 1/Feb/14
He looks much lankier than guys like 6'2 listed Roddick and Djokovic though...
Arch Stanton said on 1/Feb/14
Amazing!!! Good grief. Whenever I see a picture or video of him he always looks more 6'3 to me. He's thin build with a long face which can add to his height and as James says at times he can really look like a 6'3.5" guy. Hang on, if he's 187.5 cm, how can Djovokic be 6'2" etc etc..?
Josh said on 24/Jan/14

Very interesting quotes there. Yeah, I figured the players just threw them out there, funny in some cases I guess the ATP just finds whatever. Maybe more players who didn't go to college (i.e. the best players in the world who are all European now just give the height themselves. Also, I guess the players have the opportunity to change at the start of each year or something because the weights sometimes change a bit, and both Murray and Nadal's listed heights went up from when they were teens (Murray 6'1 to 6'3 and Nadal 6'0 to 6'1)

Considering the fact that players seemingly often give their own height, the fact that height is probably in centimeters and there is no mention of if they were in shoes or not, measured by a doctor or not etc...I think it's impossible to draw any conclusions based on height being off by a certain amount...i.e. one player's height might be too much by an inch because they once gave their height in shoes (Murray seems like a possibility), another might only be a cm too much because they just were a little generous (Roger could be a possibility) or they could have just mistakenly or consciously boosted their height by any number of cm as many of us do.

With that said, Andy Murrays 187.5 cm answer seems pretty official and like he was telling the truth at that moment. It also fits in line with a lot of previous evidence of Djokovic being listed at 187 cm on his official site until way past the point most people stop growing (about 24), of Federer being listed at 1.85 virtually everywhere for a long time, including his official site (seemingly he upped it to 1.86 cm recently, perhaps after Rob's listing) and of Nadal being listed at 6'0 until around 20. In Nadal's case it's possible he eked out a tiny bit in the last teenage years. Likely he was pushing 6' as a teen, maybe grew a hair and then probably measured close to 1.85 or something in the morning and took that as his official listing. It sounds better and most people at the time considered 1.85 cm or 6'1 to be the ideal tennis height (Roger's height). The ideal tennis height today is much the same, it appears to be 6'0-6'2. Nadal, who is perhaps the greatest ever is 6'0.25 cm in my opinion.
Mr. R said on 23/Jan/14
He did have a two inch growth spurt after he came on tour. Remember, most of the great players turned professional when they were in their teens, so there probably was more growth, even if just a little,
pjk said on 23/Jan/14

You are indeed mostly correct, thanks ( and i think your height estimates are the first believable list i have seen for these guys ). I do not know how to put links on this site but this is from a interview with John Isner and atp official's on the subject of player height :

“I’m 6-10,” Isner declared in July before a quarterfinal match against Karlovic in Newport, R.I. “But that was, like, my college height. No one at the ATP ever, like busted out the measuring tape. They just, like, found it online, or something.”

And :

The “right person” for Isner proved to be Greg Sharko, the director of media information for the ATP World Tour.

“I think John has always said that he’s like right there with Ivo,” Sharko said. “I mean, we didn’t take a tape measure or anything, but I know a lot of people have always thought he’s 6-10.”

Sharko added, “And then when he mentioned it about being 6-10, I said, ‘Well, we’ll make the official change.’ ”

Nicola Arzani, the senior vice president for public relations and marketing for the ATP World Tour, said that while there was a biannual medical examination provided by the tour, height and weight figures were largely provided by each player. Players are sometimes asked to reverify the data before the annual media guide is printed.

So, they say the player provides the height but according to John Isner they never asked his height. Seems they may do in some cases and not in others, and ( as John said) just use whatever height is available on line etc.

By the way Evo Karlovic has been officially measured at 6'11" now.
Josh said on 21/Jan/14
Heights seem user-submitted, more than measured in shoes...

Heights to the nearest .5 cm

pjk said on 19/Jan/14
Apparently, ATP tour heights are measured in SHOES and in the MORNING ( i have no confirmation of this - does anybody else ? ). This would however explain why Andy's height is 190cm on tour and 187.5 as stated by himself. The first height is in shoes, the latter will be bare feet.
Andy has given a very detailed description of his height ( to half a cm ) which is 1" lower than his ATP listed height ( shoes ) - why on earth would anyone disagree with that ?
Also to state a fact, people do indeed lose height over the course of a day but most will not lose an inch. I lost a cm from morning to night and was an average height of 6ft (182.8cm) when i was younger.This is obviously due to gravity, so the taller you are, the more you will lose, but i would assume you would have to be very tall to lose an inch or have a pathology/illness that would affect your posture later in the day.
Josh said on 16/Jan/14
Both are not as useful as the other. Him 'claiming' 6'3 in a ghost written book that probably used his ATP listed height is just not the same as him directly answering a twitter question. He is 187.5 cm. He said it himself, a very accurate measurement. 188 cm rounded up therefore is right, even willing to say bang on 188 cm with no rounding seems fair, especially if 187.5cm was during or after heavy training. End of story. And yes, Djokovic does need to go down to 6'1.5.
Late 187cm said on 14/Jan/14
I thought 189cm was probably the fairest for him because he's always looked a weak 6'3 to me.

Maybe he really is 188cm, although at what time of day?

But if he is 188cm, or is listed as 188cm, Djokovic can't be 188cm also because Murray has 1-2cm on Djokovic.

For me...

Murray: 189cm
Djokovic: 187cm
MD said on 14/Jan/14
This needs to be worked out, but bringing up twice that he claimed 6'3" in a book is dang-near meaningless, particularly now that he's claimed 187.5cm. You can make your arguments off of photographic evidence, but claims don't mean much, particularly when the claims come in more than one.
Josh said on 13/Jan/14
Agree that he's clearly taller than Djokovic by at least whatever amount is always easily noticeable ( probably at least a cm), hair or no hair.

It goes Murray: 187.5, Djokovic 186.5, Federer 185, Nadal 183.5...(round the .5's up)

Disagree with people saying he's really 189 cm. He said his height clearly and to the nearest half cm. No need to question it.Also, to the people saying it's a joke....I don't think so, maybe he thought it was funny to be so precise...but remember he was listed at 6'2 at the Olympics recently.
MD said on 12/Jan/14
Djokovic is obviously shorter. It's not a difference in hair cut; that's just disingenuous. If you're going to lower Murray, you must lower Djokovic, at least.
avi said on 11/Jan/14
@anon says on 9/Jan/14

Then you live in a delusional world. Why would he chop almost a half inch in height?? Well Federer is more a legit 6'1 then Andy a legit 6'2. They are close in height.

A 6'2 guy who can pass for 6'3 1/2 cause of hair and skinny build
Josh said on 10/Jan/14
Rob, thanks for the reply. I think I will have to accept your judgement on this haha. But here's my argument:

I agree with what you're saying about training so 188 cm seems fair for Murray. I just don't see how this doesn't affect the other players in relation to him. That's a solid .5 inches off his previously supposed height. To me, at least, he always seems noticeably taller than Djokovic, even accounting for hair. The difference was enough that everyone considered Murray the tallest of the big 3, and didn't question him at 6'3 and Novak at 6'2. The difference is not huge, but at least 1/2 an inch no matter what way you slice it. This would go in line with Novak being listed 187 in the past on his official website until 2011.
Josh said on 10/Jan/14
Rob, you said he might be at his absolute low after a training session...but still at least for me my afternoon/evening height is barely anything above my 'absolute low) an 1/8th of an inch at best. Same if I'm up for 30 hours +...I remember you posting something similar as well.

So if we give Murray 188, Djokovic should be 187, Federer 185, and Nadal 183. To me those heights are dead on accurate. Please consider it Rob! It doesn't make sense to have Murray and Djokovic the same at the very least when Murray's obviously taller than Djokovic
[Editor Rob: maybe Murray has hair advantage at times.

it's not impossible to measure low after hard graft, as I said in the past the challenger who was 187 was as surprised as me he came in that mark as he thought he was 6ft 2 and had never measured as short as 187.]

@spainmen says on 24/Dec/13

He didn't grow 2 inches at 19-20 its bs.


Told you he was only about .5-.75 taller than Federer. He looks .3-.6 taller than Roger in so many pictures. Roger is very tall. Probably 6'1.3 Murray I think is 6'2 but a strong one or at least he doesn't dip below it. I agree he may have been measured at 21 and got 6'1.8 and grew or got measured at an extreme low. I think 6'2 and 6'1.25 for Roger makes sense and I think Rob finally got it.


Isn't 187.5 cm like 6'1.8? That's low I think Murray seems a good 2 inches bigger than a guy like me.Rob could he be 6'2.25 and rounded down? I think Federer is close to 6'1.4
SAK said on 7/Jan/14
Murray has very dry sense of humour, who knows if he was being totally truthfull when saying 187.5. Why would he be so accurate. And in the UK most of us use feet and inches.

Quite frankly there are others who needed a downgrade not Murray. he is easily 189cm.

Murray is most probably measured well and is honest but does not say what time of day it is measured.
maybe murray was measured in the evening because he does not know that the height changes.
Many people do not know that the height change significantly during the day.
I think that it is measured at lunchtime and in the morning is 189 cm.
MD said on 2/Jan/14

Along with liking the Olympic height, do you think you could provide a hyperlink for his tweet in the description? Thanks. This should put into motion a few other tennis heights on this site. The funny thing is that even I'm a bit surprised by his honesty, because while I'd been arguing between 6'2" and 6'2.5", while so many other people were trying to get you to take him up to 6'3", I actually wasn't protesting too much over the 6'2.5" listing. This does, however, vindicate my insistence that Djokovic is "only" 187cm - which is what he'd been listed at on his own website until fairly recently, instead of a full 188 cm.

I hope you realize, however, that you're going to get nothing but backlash over this. lol People are going to tell you he doesn't know his own height. lol
[Editor Rob: I know he's got a dry sense of humour at times, but if he's going to come out with a cm value he's going to get the 188 and learn to live with it.]

I do not know the others, but the truth is i weight more than 185 pounds and did not reach 1.90 m (6´3). I think it is 1.88 m.(6´2) or 1.89 m (6´2.5). But I have not lied.

Out of curiosity, why do you put your posts in quotes, as if they are actual quotes? I imagine that for a lot of folks, they may actually think it's a quote by media, or something. If it's your opinion, don't add the quotes, and better yet, provide a bit more than listing a persons name and height. That's what Rob is here for. You're hear to present evidence, or at least some kind of opinion beyond posting a name and a height.

i think he can look really close to 6'1 guys. i know it depends on the picture and maybe the pavement is off a tad but it seems like Murray can look a weak 6'2 if even that at times. it would be believable he could be under 6'2.5 it is more likely he is 6'2.25 than 6'2.75 . i think if he stands straight and gets measured at his tallest he can hit 6'2.5 and Federer 6'1.4
Late 187cm said on 11/Sep/13
@ avi

What do you expect say? That I take it all back, there's .75 inch between?

I simply do not see what you see. I don't mean to be offensive, but if anyone is confused it's you.

Firstly, because I'm not arguing 1 or 2 inches. I'm saying I think there's roughly 4cm between them. So I don't why you're saying I'm confused over 1 or 2 inches. Also, that picture proves nothing. Because they guy with the short sleeves is significantly closer to the camera and both men are closer to the camera in comparison to the ATP picture below, so the perspective is skewed. It's not like for like.

Secondly, I think you're confused with regard to differences of opinion. It's ok to see things differently. I don't really care what their real heights are, I'm just offering my opinion. Nobody can know unless we witness them being measured.
You can cite Rob and others all you like it doesn't prove anything. Even Rob knows it's all idle opinion and estimation. You'll never see him insist and argue about exact heights. I could take a source like the ATP and claim that it's the biggest authority on tennis players' height. The ATP lists Federer as 185cm and Murray as 190cm, which is more than I'm suggesting.

I don't really have anything more to say about it. You think it's 2cm and I honestly don't have a problem with that. It's your opinion. I personally think it's roughly 4cm. Murray 190cm and Federer 186cm.
It's ok if you disagree. I don't need to call people 'fools' or 'confused' if they disagree with me.
avi said on 9/Sep/13
@Late 187cm says on 8/Sep/13

yes i know shoulder/eyelines must be taken with grain of salt. Murray looks 6'3 on his own but with the tennis players he looks 6'2 and change. i think you are a little confused to what 1 inch and 2 inch differences are. this is 2 inches:
Click Here
(6'0 1/4 and 6'2.3ish)
thats about 1 inch more than Murray / Federer difference and is confirmed by Rob and a few others as being 2 inches maybe 2.1 as a soild 2 inches. its funny cause if i had that extra inch and my shoulders were 1 inch higher the difference will quite minuscule. So 1 inch does make a difference.

so i think what is happening here is that Murray is 6'2.4 and Federer is 6'1.3ish that would explain the solid inch between them but like you say Murray may not stand as straight as Federer or some other folks he stands like a 6'2 guy and Federer stands 6'.1.3 or whatever hence why in SOME pics there is barely a .75 difference.
Late 187cm said on 8/Sep/13
@ avi

I guess we just see this differently. I see a good 4cm in that photo, you see 2cm.

Shoulders can't be relied on because people have different proportions. Federer's shoulders are a lot higher than Nadal's in that picture and there isn't much between those two. Murray has a long neck and is generally longer limbed than the likes of Federer and Nadal.
avi said on 5/Sep/13
that's fair but there's no pictures where I see more than a difference of 1 inch.
I think 6'1.3 for federer and 6'2.4 is Murray but you have a valid point with standing up straight. But Federer is very capable of standing up straight too!!

@ late 187cm
yeah that pic proves barely 1 inch difference between them. Rogers head is down too but look at the shoulders buddy. Same (not that it means much) but these guys are very very similar but yeah could be inch in reality no more. The interesting thing is Nadal now that looks like me and my 6'2.3 or so friend. Nadal could be 6'0.5. Its funny though like when I post a pic of 2 inch difference with my friend people say it barely looks that much, yet when Federer and Murray us hardly 2 inch people argue its more! Must be some bias here...

hes no more than an inch taller than Federer maybe he never stands up straight and i reality it is 1.25 but 1 inch is pushing it as well. i think Federer is a weak 6'1.5 and Murray a weak 6'2.5 so 6'2.5 is fair for Murray. i dont think theres any more need for debate here. maybe i should move to the Roger Federer page and argue 6'1.5 there!

As I said 6'3-6'4 is start if too tall. 5'11-6'2.5 is fine with 6'1-6'2 being optimal.6'5 is way to tall only advantage us serves though I know a 6'3ish guy who still has issues serving.

Yes Murray could be 6'2.5 but that means Federer would have to be 6'1.5 minimum there's never a full inch between everyone who says there's more than an inch has yet to post links of it.

avi says : The Polish player Jerzey janowicz I think is 6'8. Whether a week 6'8 idk but he had about 6 on Murray. They are too big for tennis anyway. Murray is last good height for it I think. After 6'3-6'4 its trouble.
Being tall/very tall (6f-6f4) in tennis is optimum. You have best of both worlds; tall enough to generate enough power, serve more easily, not too big/tall where your movement is restricted.

DelPotro (6f6) is probably one of the tallest men to win a slam(US Open 2009). But his body pays the price and he cannot remain consistenly great , eventhough he has the talent. Berdych(6f5) seems to deal movement really well aswell despite his size.

The big 4 are all between 6f0.5-6f2.5.

Some of the top women are giants though with Sharapova(6f2), Azarenka(6f). Then you have regaular tall girls, like Serena(5f9), Radwanska(5f8) etc.

Why does Federer only look .5-1 inch shorter?? Its no more than 1 inch I've never seen a true inch between them. Look at many guys rob has on here where the difference with him and 5'9 mirrors that of andy and Roger...Unless Federer is 6'1.5 maybe Murray is 6'2.5 then. Would that make more sense? Federer cant be more than that though and Murray can't be more than 6'2.5. He doesn't have much on Novak and Roger he even struggled with 3.5 on Agassi. And I don't know about Isner its possible that karlovic is a strong 6'10 but I doubt more.

I've been saying on here Murray can hardly look 6'2 next to Federer. There's pictures where there's no height between them if only 1/2 inch.Murray LOOKS 6'3 but next to nadal or Federer he looks 6'2. I really think 6'2.25 a weak 6'2.5. Rob is there possibility he is just 6'2? Is serious thing to consider. He never ever had a full inch on Federer.even Agassi looked strong 5'11 by him.

Murray is definitely a bit taller than Djokovic, if he's a flat 6'2" then Djokovic is 186-7. Murray looks too lanky to me to even be a flat 6'2", 6'2.5" is the bare minimum in my opinion. He looked really tall in that documentary they showed and he honestly looked minimum 6'4" in the Wellingtons he was wearing. Recently though that 6'8" Polish player had between 5 and 6 inches on him, I think this is spot on.

Some observations. Yesterday I thought he looked 2cm taller than Djokovic at the end, although he barely edged him out at the beginning. I think he could be 190cm, 6'2.5" is the very lowest he could be in my opinion. He's definitely taller than Djokovic. Murray is a little taller than Andrew Castle though who also says he's 6'3"...

Rob any guesses for Boris Becker? Sometimes when him and Heman are being interviewed the camera angle warps it and makes him look the same height as legit 6'1" Henman but when the camera was level yesterday he looked near 2 inches taller but not quite, I think 190cm for Becker might be a true listing.

Here he is with his parents looking uncanny similar to Jean Claude Van Damme with glasses. Click Here Based on him being 6 ft 8, how tall would you guess his parents? I'd guess his father at 6'3.5" and his mother 6'1.5"? If you look at the Djokovic comparison his mother looks close in height to him.

Well, he definitely looked taller than 6'2.5" in the documentary, he certainly looked around 6 ft 4 in the Wellington Boots he was wearing.They probably give an inch, I suppose he could be 6'3.5" in them if he's this barefoot but he honestly looked close to it. He looked broader and more powerfully built too than he looks on the tennis court. He was always quite scrawny, and while he's still a typical Ecto and not a muscular guy ad hardly Laird Hamilton at his height, his shoulders and frame still looked as if they could do some serious damage.All the hard work in the gym is paying off for him I think.

All that work this summer and this is what he gets eh? I agree its probably nearer what he''d measure barefoot, I've long said 6'2.5"-6'3" is fine for him, but I think a flat 6'2 is too low.
John said on 29/Sep/12
Rob, why the change? Think you may be right.
[Editor Rob: rising asked who was on my 'watch list', murray has been, I think somewhere in 189 is nearer than his own estimation, plus the olympics record had him at 6ft 2.]
zero said on 12/Sep/12
Closer to 6'2'' than 6'3''.
Bob said on 11/Sep/12
He can't be 191 cm, not even 6'3" (190.5 cm). He could be 189 cm at most. I think he's exactly 189 cm tall. But 188cm at night.
MD said on 11/Sep/12
BTW, I find the old quote at the top of the page very telling. He ESTIMATES he had grown to 6'3". Truth is that he never ACTUALLY did. I've noticed this happens with a lot of sports prodigies who start out young. They grow right out in front of your eyes on the camera, and every little spurt is exaggerated. This evens happen with us not-so-famous people. You always get the comments from your older relatives during your growing years like "boy, you're going to be tall!"
SolidSnake said on 10/Sep/12
What is his wingspan though, he reaches the ball in amazing fashion. Must be over 6'5'' wingspan. Hope he wins US Open
andrew said on 9/Sep/12
6'2". I believe this is an official measurement of him:

SAK said on 13/Aug/12
Been watching many of Murrays matches recently, I would say he is obviously taller then Djokovic and Roddick. So i think he is taller then 188cm (Djokovic and Roddick are liekly 187cm). Therefore for Andy; 190cm afternoon/morning, 189cm evening/night.
Lol said on 6/Aug/12
Andy Murray is exactly 188cm (6'2") tall. Here's his profile for London 2012...
Click Here
BTW, he looked only 3cm taller than Roger Federer in the Olympics.
Please downgrade him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jul/12
Looks a legit 188cm, maybe 189cm at a push.
Not convinced he's 6ft3(191cm) except in his
favourite tennis shoes or right out of bed.

Looked about 1in taller than Federer in their match

1,90m pure ectomorph?

I'd fully agree on that. Murray is close enough to 6'3" to claim it. I'd say 6'2.5"-6'3" is fine for Andy. Same range as Prince William.
Silent d said on 5/Feb/12
The fact is novak is tall. 190cm.
MD said on 26/Jan/12
I just noticed that the Herald quote is probably one of the sillier ones. It's not even Andy claiming to know his height, rather, estimating his height and very roughly. He's not a full 6'3".

NADAL-6'0.5- when standing properly- can often look 6FT
Silent d said on 23/Jan/12
6 foot 3. He is slightly taller than 6 foot 2 novak. Barely taller than nadal? There is a noticeable difference.
mister said on 3/Jan/12
I've never seen Murray up close but I have seen Federer and I am 6' 3/4 and I watched him practice from the front row at Indian WElls this year. He is taller than me and I would even say closer to 6-2 for Federer. Murray appears to be at least an inch taller so I could see around 6'3. Nadal is shorter than Roger by like an inch so idk about Murray being barely taller than Nadal???
Terryman said on 5/Aug/11
1,90m pure ectormoph?
Shaun said on 20/Jun/11
Why does Bon downgrade everybody?? Since when has Federer been 6'0.5" and Nadal 6' flat??
Shaun said on 20/Jun/11
JJ says on 17/Jun/11
6'2.25 and not a millemeter more

Taller by almost an inch than David Haye. At worst he's 190cm.
Bon_ said on 4/Jun/11
Yesterday on handshaking after match with Nadal he looked barely taller than Nadal who is maybe 6' on his best day
avi said on 27/May/11
Rob, i really think he is strong 6'2. maybe 6'2.5 TOPS. you can't say hes 6'3 because of one picture. in every picture with 6'0 Nadal he is only 2-2.25 inches taller and 6'1 Federer he is an inch taller if lucky.6'3 must be a morning height for him or legit shoe height.
avi said on 27/May/11
dude he looks 6'0.5-6'1 tops with Bolleli. i dont think the guy is more than 6'2 in reality. that pic is messed up.
Bon_ said on 27/May/11
google some pics of him with 6'0.5 max Federer. That doesn't look like 2 inches difference, more like half inch. Murray strong 6'1 at best.
MD said on 11/May/11
Obviously, there is something wrong/off about that picture, Agon.
agon said on 11/May/11
Murray with 6' Bolleli

Shaun said on 22/Apr/11
He aint under 190cm legit, sorry. In fact he looks almost 6'4" next to Ricky Hatton, that's 9-10 inches.
new england said on 21/Apr/11
seen him next to nadal not much taller than him nadal is really a 6'0" figure nd is about the same height as djokovic who is a solid 6'2" if not half an inch taller and about a inch taller next to federer who is a solid 6'1" so i would say murray is about a 6'2" 6'2.5" definently 6'3" in shoes
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Apr/11
6"2.5(189cm) no more...well maybe 190cm at a push
anon said on 20/Mar/11
Even in 2008 Murray looked at least two inches shorter than Marat Safin. Safin is not 193, more likely 194 or 195cm. I'd say Murray is 190cm.
Anonymous said on 22/Feb/11
anything under 190 is 6'2, no 190 is 6'2.75- 6'3 basically, as 6'3 is 190.5 being recise but somebody who is 6'2 can be listed as 190 or 191 in cm's, 6'2 would be 188cm, 189 is 6'2.5 so 190 would not be 6'2 it is basically 6'3 and certainly closer to 6'3 than 6'2.

In Theory 6'3 is 190cm,

[Editor Rob: Andy Murray and Ricky Hatton. Boxrec have ricky as 5ft 7.5.

Ricky himself used to claim 5ft 7 but then claimed 5ft 6, which would make sense against Andy!
clan said on 11/Feb/11
nest to beckham he looks 6'2.5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Feb/11
Slightly under 6"3 looks on target
jake said on 26/Jan/11
Looks close in height to Novak Djokovich who really looks a solid 6' 2", same as Roddick
Anonymous said on 13/Jan/11
He is 6'3- 190cm.

Probably same as me- 6'3.5 when wake and 6'2.5- 6'2 at Evening, I think technically that is 6'3 period
James said on 21/Dec/10
yeah maybe 190cm in the afernoon and 189cm at night. bang on 191cm out of bed.
hs2010 said on 8/Dec/10
In January 2007 when Andy was quoted as being about 6'3", he was clearly still in the 6'1" range as he was 3" shorter than legit 6'4" Marat Safin: Click Here

In 2010, he looks about 1.5" taller than 186cm Roger Federer:

I'd say that 6'2.75" or 190cm would fit Murray nicely.
Bon said on 28/Nov/10
on court he seems 188-189 to me. I would estimate his 'true' height at 6'2.25
MD said on 21/Nov/10
Good pictures. At least some of them show he's much closer to height to the 6'2"ish tennis stars than originally thought, and that they are in similar footwear kind of drives home the point. No way is this guy a full 6'3".
James said on 20/Nov/10
might you consider downgrading him rob?

[Editor Rob: it's a possible he is weak 6ft 3 guy yes]
James said on 19/Nov/10
Rob do you think with David Cameron who might be 184cm Murray looks under 6'3?

188 cm at night most likely
