It's not just the Nadal shot, though. The photo Johnson posted of him with Kyrie Irving was very telling:

Actually in that photo it's a classic 2.25 to 2.5 inch difference.
Nadal at 6'0 and Nishikori
I do think Nishikori is a strong 5'9 though based on other photos. Just in this pic he looks a strong 5'9.5 almost 5'10.

Rob, are you sure about this listing? I mean, if Nadal is 6ft 1/4, then Nishikori isn't even over 5'9". 1/4 here:
Could be 176cm range there, if similar sneakers.

He's basically 5'9.5 but I guess he could be 5'9.2 or something as well...
I think Federer who is probably 6'0.5 to weak 6'1 is about 3 to 3.5 inches taller? Does that seem about right?
It appears Federer is probably not fully 6'1 I'm guessing...

Wow, he looks quite small, there. Smaller than I even thought.

His official web says 177cm

wouldn't it be 11/16ths for 177cm then ⅝ of an inch?
Technically, but 1/8ths is the smallest fraction I'd go, which can get you pretty close to most whole centimetre values.

@Lima, sorry but 182cm is physically impossible for Kei Nishikori, look at him with Rafael Nadal who is about 183,5 cm: Click Here
He actually struggles to look even 175 cm in this pic next to Nadal

Not much taller than David Ferrer who to me looks more 5'8 than 5'9

I was a bit surprised at this listing, since he does look 5'10 with many of the players. He does hold great posture and his hair can add half in inch, however, so this height is plausible. He was supposed to be the next big thing in tennis, but has unfortunately turned out to be a bust!

Nishikori is a strong 177 cm
Pierric said on 21/Jan/18
Hmmmm I see him near 1m79 on differents pics with Nadal and Federer...
Dorleac said on 21/Jan/18
But with other players he looks over 5'10. Maybe because of his perfect posture.

177 might be a rounded-down conversion of 5'10. Doesn't look that short alongside other players.
I'd say it's the other way around - 5ft 10 is a round up from his 177cm claim. Japanese are by default using metric.

Strong 5 foot 9 for Kei Nishikori.
