John Isner's Height
6ft 9.75in (207.6 cm)
American professional Tennis player. He has been described both 6ft 9 and 10 during his career.
I'm a tall guy; I'm 6'10". I've done a good job putting some meat on my bones since my freshman year of college. It's taken a lot of work. I was just under 200 pounds my freshman year; I was 6'8" and 198 pounds. Now I'm 6'10", 238. I could get heavier if I just ate a little bit more, but for my playing weight, I like being between 235 and 240. But back in college, I was a tall, goofy, underdeveloped kid. At 19, I didn't have a hair on my face. When I was 20, I looked 14. I feel I've grown out of that stage.

he doesn't look 238 pounds because hes so tall, that is why people guess me at like 10-15 kilos less than I actually am, taller people hold weight differently.

Easily appears to be 6'10" to me, he's a gigantic, lanky guy with super long legs. However his Wikipedia page lists him as 6'11" now? Has he grown another inch?

He was 6'9.75" i believe it but he doesn't look 238 pounds as he mention. Maybe closer to 230 or 228 pounds claiming a 10 pounds more to give a buff guy impression.

Yeh it does seem odd but does seem right if you see photos of them saw one from early college days. Apparently he was only 6"3 going into his senior year of high school as well.

So his father only 6ft too? We were thinking that he was probably 6'6 or something! Interesting, you'd think 6'5 would be more what he'd be like his brothers with a mother that tall, but maybe on his father's side ended up getting a stronger tall gene somewhere as well.

I wouldn't have thought under 6"10 looks very near karlovic hard to tell a difference at times. I would think a fraction over rather than under at times he can look gigantic. I heard from an article that both his parents were both a fraction under 6"0 and that his older brothers are both 6"5.

He would probably be closer to 6-11 out of bed. Maybe 6-10 1/2

Anyone see the thing that made the media about Isner standing next to Dudi Sela? I was a bit annoyed they kept refering to Sela as 5'9" (without qualifying it as a listing) when there is clearly more than a foot difference between the two.

6 foot 10 after he wakes up
6 foot 9 when he goes to sleep

Del Po seems over 6-6 he is clearly taller than Cillic. Could even be 6-6.5:6-7

Isner does look 6'10, Yh He is babyfaced even tho is 32 now, glad you have added tennis players on here, Marin Cilic looks 6'6 too similar to Del Potro.

wow that's crazy wish I had some of his height, of course not 6'10, but somewhere in the 6' range would be nice. Wonder how tall his parents are.

I feel short at 6'7 compare to them.. Lol
: Giant tennis players: John Isner, Ivo Karlovic and Reilly Opelka
Can't believe Reily this boy spurt out and hit over 6'10. His 20yo might have stop growing.
: Reily look about an inch over Isner now.

if you look at him next to 6'8 listed Kevin Anderson who himself says he's 6'7.5 barefoot Isner is easily 6'10

I've followed John Isner's tennis career for quite a few years - interestingly the first time I saw him play (maybe about 6 years ago) he was listed as 6'8" - seen him a few times since and he's definitely taller now. He clearly kept growing through his early-mid 20's!

Facially he actually looks pretty cute and kind of on the younger side for someone that tall and in his early 30s. I can believe 6'10.

Del Potro is more likely someone who is the textbook of a solid 6'6 probably would measure somewhere between 198 and 198,5.Well Isner looks like 3.25 to 3.5" taller maybe 6'9.5" is better but comfortably clears 6'10 earlier possibly even 6'11 out of bed or very close to it.

Nah andy, Click Here
I wouldn't argue a solid 6'10 with Del Potro. Granted you could argue 6'6.25-5 for Potro but he looks somewhere in 6'9 range there.

Interesting height selection. Once you get to those heights, at least in my humble 5'9 opinion, it is pretty tough to discern what the correct height listing is. He could say anything between 6'9-7'0, and I'd probably believe him. Unless you have people who are of similar height standing next to each other, or of course a stadiometer, its virtually impossible since you probably don't encounter people of that height on a everyday basis. Maybe if you were in the 6'6-6'7 area, then you could probably make an estimate. He is a literal giant on the tennis court, in every sense of the word, along with Dr. Ivo Karlovic, when you dwarfing legit 6'6 guys, that's saying something. However, unlike the NBA, there is really doesn't seem to be advantage, as I have stated before, the perfect tennis height seems to be between 6'0-6'2.

He's a solid 6'10 if i've ever seen one!

A weak 6ft10...nice. His mum is probably at least 5ft11. His dad is apparently running for congress in North Carolina. No photos of them together though...and actually none of the father standing up with others. Couple of portrait photos and that's it. I'm guessing there's maybe some estrangement

SJH is right he's maybe 6'9.5" compared to legit 6'6" Juan del Potro.
Reece said on 21/Jun/17
He does look 6-10 to me. No less than 6-9.5 certain imo.

Isner with his mother, looks small haha, but in reality she doesn't look far off 6 ft though we can't see footwear. With a guy like Isner you'd guess that he probably had a 6 ft 6 or 7 father as well, that would explain his height.
Editor Rob: yeah his Mother looks on the tall side.

I believe he is 6'9.5
Arch Stanton said on 21/Jun/17
He still looks very young in the face mind, could pass for 22 still.
said on 21/Jun/17
Thanks, this listing has to be a first! Yes it looks right with Murray, with Del Potro you could argue 6'9.5 but then I think Del Potro is a little over 6'6 flat. Obviously clears 6'10 earlier in the day but his lowest is probably a little under. At times he can really look massive, looks obviously taller than even Crouch and Osman types Click Here
Editor Rob: it would be great one day to have a listing for every height from 6ft to 7ft.
