5ft 11.25 is precise.Saw her in wta of Monterrey.She was so imposing in some heels that add her like 10 cm.Must be one of the most beautiful tennis players of all time.

You would be wrong about those legs..that is not skinny or thin twig legs.
They look longer because of the heels she has on there but those thighs look muscled to me and very nice .
i would guess she is 58-60 kilogram , 127 -132 pounds.

Daniela is 5'11" true to her claim but as she is extremely thin at 115 lbs she looks taller. Infact she looks like a runway model rather than a tennis player.
Coming to the height and build of the current crop of players there is no doubt that they are taller, bigger and stronger than the girls of the 80's & 90's. The top players have however always been tall & big for ex Steffi Graf (5'9", 150 lbs), Gabriela Sabatini (5'8", 160 lbs), Dinara Safina (6'1", 180 lbs) & Lindsay Davenport (6'2", 185 lbs) to name a few. However none of these come close in size and strength to Serena Williams who is absolutely huge at only 5'9" but weighs close to 190 lbs with amazonian arms, shoulders, hips and legs. I guess serena's arms are bigger than daniela's legs

Average for female players now could be near 5'9 indeed with the large majority being between 5'6 and 6'.
Quite near the average height for men.No wonder that with heels on they would start to look impressive next to average joe

@Arch Stanton: Federer grew to 6'1" despite his parents being average height at best. I'd definitely say their environment played a big role in their height.
Also, today's tennis is more power-centered than before, and taller people have a huge advantage because they can smack the ball much harder than shorter players. Modern players who are "short" (Simona Halep, Sara Errani, Kei Nishikori, David Ferrer) almost always never play the aggressive baseline style, preferring to develop solid defense instead because they can't generate the power taller players can. In the 90s, the power game wasn't prominent till Seles, Davenport and the Williams sisters began dominating the field with it - all of whom are tall.

Yes, a lot of them are trained from a very early age and during puberty the coaches will make sure they eat as well as possible in the knowledge that they'll become pros and with height giving them the advantage. Average in the early 90s for a female player was probably only about 5 ft 6 or 7 but nowadays I'd say it's likely near 5 ft 9.

The female tennis players are definitely getting better looking (and taller) these days. In my youth they were usually squat and often butch like Conchita Martinez or Arantxa Sanchez!
[Editor Rob: the average height has increased a bit aswell, but then many of them start at an early age and with better nutrition and care growing up I think many reach their max potential height or even exceed it.]
