Hi Dazza, in that pic with Ms Barton, Maria actually slouches terribly so that she can fit into the pic...!
I couldnt copy the link of the pic but you can see it in her official website.

i would gave her a legit 6 ft 1 and 1/4

She was standing in tennis shoes after winning the US Open and dwarfed Dick Enberg. That's not an exaggeration. She has to be at least 6'2" or 6'3" and I'm guessing weighs alot more than you people think. A solid, 6'3" girl. Come on - she weights 180 if she's an ounce.
Anon E Mouse said on 19/Sep/06
Mmm... Depending how much she fills out, I don't think 168 is likely to be her weight. She's not got the same frame as someone like Pam Shriver or Linsey Davenport. She's not 'solid' through the hips, the upper thighs. Her shoulder structure is to die for...but she's no linebacker. So I think she's always going to be on the 'lithe' end of the scale. (No pun intended.) I might be splitting hairs here, but I'd say low 160s. (Right now, mid-140s at the very least.)

Her height? I think she's done growing. As for what that measurement is, well, I still think the shot with her and Henin-Hardenne is the final word on it. Strange I haven't read any comments from the site's naysayers on the photo I've mentioned...twice now... 6'2" is my guess. Prove me wrong!
Dazza said on 18/Sep/06
There is a pic out there of Maria next to Mischa Barton. She is only 1 inch taller than Mischa, both in heels. How can this be? who is lying?
Anonymous said on 18/Sep/06
My question is, when she has reached her peak in terms of physical development (i.e in her mid twenties), how tall will she be and how much will she weigh?

In terms of height, I think she has done growing and in my opinion she is somewhere between 6

Yeah Jason, legit 6-3 women look like absolute giants, and Maria doesnt look that tall.
Viper652 said on 17/Sep/06
Roddick is 6-1, not 6-3.
Jason said on 16/Sep/06
She doesn't look more than a good 6'1'' to me, either. I saw a chick a couple of months back who wasn't more than 6'1'' (I'm well over 6'0'' myself) but looked like a giant walking in the city. And she wasn't in heels and at least 200lbs and solid. When they get very tall, women really seem taller than they are.
ralph said on 16/Sep/06
I saw her at the US Open and she looked tall, but not 6'3", 6'1" is likelier. (with tennis shoes)
ds said on 16/Sep/06
Also anonymous. Roddick is almost 6'3", tons of people say this. And Maria was in like 3-4 inch heels.
Anonymous said on 14/Sep/06
Anonymous 13/Sep/06 how does that guy know that she's 6-3? Was she being measured or was it only his estimation? If she was measured why her height stayed at 6ft thruout the Open?
Anonymous said on 14/Sep/06
It's not official that she's 6-3, but there's a decent amount of reporters starting to claim that she is that tall. I also heard one of the ESPN News anchors saying she was 6-3 before the US Open semifinals.

"At 6-foot-3, she covers the court well. And along with Henin-Hardenne, Sharapova is the top fighter in the women's game."

Anyone care to comment about the photo I linked to at the US Open, Maria and Henin-Hardenne...? Arguments as to what it suggests? Hmm...?
Glenn said on 14/Sep/06
You met her Ralph? if she is 6-3,that makes sense as to why my friends say 6-4 at an event in small heels.
Anonymous said on 13/Sep/06
she is 6'3... i personally know it coz i know the guy who takes players stats in the us open... although she is still listed at 6'0

[Editor Rob: has she been remeasured and declared now that she's 6ft 3? She could be mind you, not really looked at much pics of her recently...

as for your 'guy', this would be the same person who has Vincent Spadea at 6ft on the 2006 US Open site?, like all other 'official' sites and tennis tournaments out there have listed him at, yet I added him last year (after pierrec sent me a picture of himself and spadea) at 5ft 10.5...

and then a year later I found an interview with spadea where *shock* he actually tells his height as 5ft 10.5...

FIRE your stats man ;-)

msn said on 13/Sep/06
she's is taller than venus williams. i watched some pictures from 2005 where they were pictured together. if venus is 184 cm, then sharapova looks like 187 or something like that...
ralph said on 13/Sep/06
sharapova was exactly the same height of venus williams , and venus is 184 cms.NO WAY she is over 190 cms.
Glenn said on 12/Sep/06
My friends say 6-4.so she must be 6-3.
Anonymous said on 12/Sep/06
Well, more journalists are listing her as 6-3, maybe influenced by you guys here haha. Here are some quotes the newest articles after her US Open triumph:

"This year, she worked hard to gain strength in her legs and put more muscle on her 6-foot-3-inch frame. She also worked on her..."

"Launching her 6-foot-3 frame up and out into the court, Sharapova set the tone for the rest of the match with her authoritative serve. After surrendering serve in the second game, Sharapova..."

"Final game for U. S. Open this evening at 8 P.M. east coast time after one hours and 50 minutes Maria Sharapova have won the title beat Justin Henin 6-4, 6-4. A 6 feet 3 inch tall, 19 years oid Russian..."

Just google Sharapova with keywords something like "6 foot 3" and you'll find plenty of results, mostly new ones...
Anon said on 12/Sep/06
Sharapova is over 6'2". She's being listed as 6'3", and could certainly pass for that, but if you wanted to be really accurate, maybe 6-2 1/2 is correct.
cluedin said on 11/Sep/06
just saw her at marc jacobs show, could be over 6'2. she's MASSIVE. It's so funny when you see her standing in a crowd. But i didnt see her shoes.
sf said on 11/Sep/06
She was standing next to Dick Enberg and WAY taller than he was. I don't know how tall he is, but she had him by 3 or 4 inches. And, we know she only had on tennis shoes, cause she has just one the match.
Viper652 said on 11/Sep/06
Think John McEnroe is full of it. She generally looks 6-1.
ralph said on 11/Sep/06
John McEnroe is only 5'9", he can say whatever he wants. Maria Sharapova is 6'1" MAX.

Venus Williams is a little taller than Maria and is 1,84m. This is consistent with Maria's 1,83...

Man, she towered over what's his name at the post-match ceremoney of the US Open today. I can't think of his name, but I'm inclined to agree with John McEnroe.

Saw her in person in a couple of early rounds at the US Open last week. I'm 189cm and she looked just about as tall as me, could be +/- 2 or 3cm I suppose. Hard to tell more exactly than that from the stands.

She looks 6-1, 6-1 1/2 at her absolute tallest. She doesnt look 6-2 or over at all.

Some of you are complete idiots.

Firstly, if someone is 6' 2", they won't look that height in EVERY single pic relative to somebody else. Posture, floor level, reliability of other person's height, footwear, etc ALL play a factor.

Lastly, if you're going to post photos of Maria, don't post them from early 2004 when she was 6ft if you're trying to disprove she's 6' 2", which she clearly is. If anything, she's pushing 6' 3", but that's not for me to say.

And yes, Roddick was tip-toing in that picture below. Don't look blindly at photos, for god's sake, use that brain of yours sometimes. If Roddick is 6' 1.5" - 6'2" then he can't be taller (especially by that margin!) without something fishy going on.

A 6-1 girl can easily look 6-3 in person.

Why is it that the people that have never met her are saying she is like 6'1" while the people who have are saying that she is like 6'3"?
ralph said on 25/Aug/06
one guy said richard branson was 6'2". Thats very funny. In that pic maria was in heels and had three inches over branson, so that puts her in 6'0.5"- 6'1" range.
Grace said on 18/Aug/06
My God. Ralph! He was on his tiptoes... It was such a joke. There is no matter to say that Sharapova is smaller than 186 cm. She says in every interview: I think my height is like 186.5... Do you think that sush a tall girl would like to look even taller. Of course not...Even on the contrary. I am 185 cm. myslef. So I know that I will better say I am 184, but of course not 186 or more. Maria is like 187 cm. and every pic confirms that, she is 19 already and I am sure she will not grow more.
ralph said on 17/Aug/06
Rob, I saw a pic where roddick had one inch over maria when she was in heels, but I dont remember where s it.
ds said on 11/Aug/06
Rick says on 25/Jul/06
Agree with ds and I thinck Tatiana is not more than 174 ! Again, after an hard work, my estimations.
Davenport 189, Pierce 178, Kournikova 173, Hingis 167/168, Seles 176/177, Serena 176, Venus 184, Capriati 171, Mauresmo 174, Clisters 173, Henin 164/165, Vaidisova 181, Dementieva 180/181, Myskina 174, Kuznetsova 171, SHARAPOVA 185.
These are my estimations aswell, but I believe Maria is 187 and Kuzntzova is actually 173/174.
victoria said on 9/Aug/06
in the pic with sharapova and roddick, sharapova, i heard, was wearing heels and rodick was bending down so of course she looked taller.

Recently she said in a press conference that she only stopped growing early this year. But later she also added that she's not a physiologist to know the exact stuff. She's filled out significantly this year that's for sure.

Anon E Mouse said on 4/Aug/06
As far as her 'size', or weight... Think about the athletic teenaged males you've known who are in her height range. Then factor in a female fat quotient. Throw all this in a blender, toss in a little 'She lives in another universe from us' and I *guarantee* you that she's currently in the neighbourhood of 145 pounds. I'd bet a ton of money on it. We talk about celebs 'rounding down' when it comes to height. There is a consistent trend with almost *all* female celebs, be they actresses, athletes, singers, models, to lie about their weight. You think they're sensitive about their heights?!? I bet you rarely get an accurate answer about weight. Whether we're talking Mariah Carey, the Williams sisters, Playmates, you can usually start off by adding 10% onto the answer. As a *minimum*. Height women try to hide. Weight is still the bugaboo to end all bugaboos. With the exception of someone like Gabrielle Reece, you very rarely get an honest answer to 'How much do you weigh?' Go on; ask Michelle Wie. I dare ya.

ronaldo is 6 foot.
but it is the year 2003 when he is pictured with maria, before her late growth spurt. she was wearing a 10 cm-high heel. i saw the pic.

Click Here

i think venus and maria is similar in the size of arm and shoulder as well as height.

i believe maria is 6`1 definitely even if she insists that she is 6`2.

Look how "meaty" her arm looks in this pic. She has certainly added some muscle...

By the way!!! I cannot find Claudia Schiffer here on celebheights web-page... Rob, why?
Anni said on 1/Aug/06
Claudia is 182 cm. in reality - she is also very tall, it is a well-known fact, with her sandals she must be like 184 cm. Maria is like 12-13 cm. taller at this picture. It makes her min. 196 cm. tall in these heels! Her heels must be like 10 cm. If your heels are 10 cm - they make you not 10 cm, but 8-9 cm. taller. So I am sure her height is something like 187 cm. Everything confirms that. Even her official russian web page, where is written: height: 187 cm., weight: 59 kg. Click Here
Rick said on 31/Jul/06
It's simple. Claudia is 179, 180 with the shoes she wore this day. If Maria was standing str8 she could be around 192. You want we trust Maria was only 4 cms of heals ?! LOL

Look, my dad and mother are both like 1.66 and i am like 1.87. That only happend because my parents got me GH treated, but every one els thinks i am normally like that. Meaby ur friend is not normally tall, meaby she she also used Gh treatment. Sharapova is not normally like that, she is dumping here self. i think she they did that to here, so that she could get a better serve. Plus i also think, that there are a lot of player girl, that are doning that to there self, us we chat, to get better at tennis. Beliveme, sharapova is not going to be the only one useng GH in the future. She is only one of the frist ones. Better anti-dumping to under age player has to implementet to stop that. I think in 3 years max, sharapovas height is not going to be that an comun in girl tennis.

Richie said on 28/Jul/06
How thinks sharapova used gh hormon to get as big as she is now. I am not sure but someone should do some antidumping on her. I think she might have gotten away with this antidumping because of here age. i think under age player dont get the same cheks as older player. For example, she is taller than here dad, that is not natural. Plus she started growing 4 inches a year from age 14(when she was only 5 feet 5inches) to 18 until she got to be 6 feet 2 inches tall. did some of u new that is a normal patron of growth for some how is using HG hormone. I now that becuase i been threw that. belive me she dummping her self.

Her weight is listed at various different sites as 112lbs (unlikely), 130lbs (possible), and 147lbs (also possible). She actually looks quite thin and lean to me but I suppose in this day and age of super-skinny celebs she could be regarded as big.
Anonymous said on 26/Jul/06
Maybe she's still around 6-2. But I'm more interested to know her actual weight. TV does make her look lanky and skinny. I believe in person, she's HUGE. Check out this up-close interview from the recent Wimbledon:

Claudia Schiffer is 182,5 in reality...It is clear! But she is really without any heels. Maria is in very big heels, but she does not stand straight!

I've always thought she's around 6'1". She's around 2 inches taller than Dementieva who's 5-11. And I know Venus Williams is around 184 cms and Maria is maybe just a little taller. Maria is not 188 !!!

Maria Sharapova is NOT 6'2. I watched the clip where she is standing next to Vanessa Minnillo (who is wrongly listed at 5'8). Nick Lachey is listed at 5'9, and in pictures with Vanessa (without high heels), she is at least 2 inches shorter. Maria tends to almost always wear heels, which makes her look like a giant. Lindsay Davenport is no shorter than 6'2, and in this picture with Maria: Click Here she's (Davenport) not standing up straight, yet she still is at least 2 inches taller than Sharapova. Venus Williams is 6'1, and in this picture:Click Here Sharapova is at least 1 inch shorter than Venus.
THEREFORE, Maria Sharapova is NOT 6'2! Maybe 6'0... maybe even 6'1, but she's definitely not 6'2!

In Wimbledon when they show player's stats, she's listed at 1.82m. Here's the photo that you need: Click Here ; I'd say height difference isn't any more than 4 inches.
Anon E Mouse said on 8/Jul/06
Regarding Alex's comment about her weight; from personal experience (both my previous girlfriends were Amazons; 5'8"/155 pounds, 5'10"/160 pounds) there is no way at all Miss Sharapova's weight is anywhere near 130 lbs. Although I think his estimate of 155 might be a tad too high, I will venture this: when she's done filling out...especially in the upper body...she'll be competing at around 165 lbs. She and Michelle Wie would make great rowing partners...

I am Russian, and I have seen an interview with Elena Demntjeva. She said her height was 182 cm.
alex said on 22/Jun/06
that's clearly not possible now. She was 59kg 2 or 3 years ago. Now at 188cm she must be no less than 70kg (155 lbs), otherwise she'd look anorexic.

Back to Maria, I've seeing on the 'net that she's filling out, yet her weight remains reportedly 130 lbs. Don't think that she had much "baby fat" to lose. Wonder if there've been any changes there.
ds said on 20/Jun/06
It's not quite 10 cm actually. And first of all, it is a wellknown fact (look by other players) that Golovin is 173or maybe even 174. And it's actualyl more like 8 cm, I know because I'm 10cm taller than my mom and 10 shorter than my dad and that's more like 3.5". Plus, weird angles. But usually Golovin looks a bit more than 3 inches shorter than Vaidisova (I've actually seen other pics). Vaidisova is by no means 184-185. That's complete bs. Vaidisova, compared to players closer to her height is 182. Look beside Dementieva and Petrova. Elena is possibly taller than 180 imo about 181 and Petrova is 178. But Golovin is def. under. Not just by this comparisn, but by others aswell.

She's a friend of 6'1" Roddick.

The photo where Roddick seems the same height than Sharapova dates back to july 2005.
In fact Sharapova was wearing heels and Roddick was on his tiptoe
Click Here :
""As Sharapova arrived on the red carpet for one of the pre-event parties Tuesday night at the Playboy Mansion, the statuesque Russian was asked to take a few photos with Roddick.
"Are you wearing heels?" Roddick blared from across the carpet. "I'm not taking a photo with you if you're taller than me."
Vaulting on his tiptoes, Roddick made his way over to snap a few shots with the 18-year-old superstar.""

The photo here is also from july 2005
Click Here
Probably the same configuration

What height was she at that time ? Maybe she was already Roddick's size, a little smaller or taller.
But Sharapova has been growing a lot.
Roddick seems to have quick a little complex about it, like Sharapova when she said she's was comfortable with her additional inches. He used to be much taller than her. He's not even wider than her... She was probably in love with him, who knows, but that's maybe why they have not been dating seriously together. If it were true, it would a pity though.

This is more a prediction than a contribution to the debate. I doubt if Maria has grown any more than the 6'2 sh'es listed on the Wta site as. It's too short a time period. Davenport still looks a bit taller. I think she'll peak at 6'3 though. I think that's cool but in a interview she said she thought she was too tall already so maybe it's not cool for her. Well, I'm sure she's confident, knows she's pretty, lots of male fans so I'm sure she could deal with 6'3.

If this girl is growing whole inches at her age, she may have some kind of ptituary disorder, or her growth plates haven't closed for some reason. An interesting biological specimen; I'm in medical school and we were just studying growth.

The peak heigh spurt for girls, BTW is around the age of 12, and most girls stop growing by 15. To be growing several inches after the age of 15, and especially 16+ (or in Sharapova's case: 18+) is very, very unusual.

FROM A FORUM:
The at-least 6'2' Maria Sharapova was on Live with Regis and Kelly Tuesday morning, which was quite fun. Regis forgot to hold onto his chair so he got dwarfed as Maria came out. She practically had to bend at a 90 degree angle to give him the customary female guest hug & kiss. Regis said he thought Maria had 'grown a couple inches' since she was on the show last. Later the 5-foot-3 Kelly Ripa asked her what her inseam was (she doesn't know) and then made Maria stand up to point out how much longer Maria's legs were than hers (her hips nearly reach Kelly's shoulders!).

Ayla Brown was wearing heels last night, and indeed has been wearing heels for every performance or photo shoot thus far in the competition. Those probably bump her up to 6'2''. She IS only 17, though, and it's unclear if she's one of those girls who just shot up to 6 feet when she was 14, or if she has a little growing left to do a la Sharapova.

Either way, as an Idol finalist or as a basketball player, she's probably going to be in the spotlight for a while. Might be worth creating a discussion thread for her eventually.

I saw the video too... thought Davenport looked a smidge taller than Maria more often, but Maria had worse posture than Davenport. It was hard to tell because they were hardly ever on flat ground together (even the tennis court was on top of the bottom of the ski slope).

I'd say she definitely has grown, at least a quarter of an inch, maybe a half-inch since she played Davenport last (early November), when Davenport was quite clearly a bit taller still.

I watched the recent video from Dubai where Maria and Davenport visit a skiing resort there. Both were wearing same type of shoes. Maria did appear slightly TALLER than Davenport.

well actually maybe she isn't even above 6'2". Because I was looking at the SI party photos, and she's VERY close to the other models. And her heels must be atleast 3 inches...they all have similar heels. And she's not that much taller than 5'11" Daniela, so I do't think she is over...

Maria could easily cross 6'3 in the next year. Girls dont stop growing till they are like 20. Maria is probably in the last growh spurt which can add about an inch or so to her already imposing 6'2. Also all that exercising seems to be really helping in keeping her extending this phase.

On the images on getty images about the SI swimsuit issue she isn't exactly towering over some models. So is she smaller or are those models (Rachel Hunter, Karolina Kurkova) taller?

Another tennis player who had huge growth later years:
James Blake (who had scoliosis): "I was five foot three still when I was 17 years old and I never planned on doing this"

They put 187cm (though he's sometimes listed as tall as 6'3''!) for Taylor Dent and he's that at absolute max, probably more like 186. My girlfriend has met him and has a pic with him.

No Roddick is 6'2", plus Maria has heels...and they put 187 for all the male 6'2" players, but judging from Roger he's 6'2" if not over, I've seen him listed at 188cm too. And Rip Hingis isn't 5'5" I met her at the open, and she's more 167cm...and I don't think Maris will reach 6'6". I think she has probably stopped, maybe will reach 190cm, I feel like the last 2 inches were accidental, due to intense excercise...I think she was only supposed to be 6'.

Although Sharapova is listed by Advanta as being 6ft tall, I think she is at least 6'2" tall. My logic is that I have seen Maria up close and personal at the 2004 Advanta Tournment in Villanova, PA. Unfortuately I didnt get the autograph then or a photo with her either however, I got a pretty good idea on how tall she was. When she came close to the barrier to sign autographs Maria came close to me and I had to look up at her. I wear sole support in my shoes which give adds a tiny bit to my 6ft height. However, Maria still was taller than me by maybe an inch or two in her tennis shoes.

Roddick's 187cm, that's 6'1 1/2''. Can't tell much with that pic anyway cuz Maria is much closer to the camera.

I'd give her 6'2 even, she doesn't look anything under that but shes not over that either.
ds said on 11/Feb/06
Davenport is marked 6'2.5" so Sharapova is 6'2" I don't think 189cm yet. probably 188cm, which is a bit above 6'2".
Jason said on 11/Feb/06
She actually didn't look more than 186cm when I watched some of one of her matches on tv at the Australian Open last month.
rip said on 11/Feb/06
I think 6'1".
because :
Martina Hingis is at most 5'5". She was atleast 4" shorter than
5'9" Mauresmo.
Also Sharapova is an inch shorter than 6'2" Davenport

It's very intresting to compare her height to players that she played a couple of years ago. She just seems to get bigger and bigger each match, i wonder when it will stop. I could definetly see her being 6'6 or more.
Gramps said on 8/Feb/06
Yes, I think 188, maybe even 189.

good pics. Maria is easily a head taller. Hingis looks like a child next to her.
Alex said on 6/Feb/06
With 5'6.5 Hingis, Maria looks 6'2 as thats 7-7.5 inches right there between the 2.
Gramps said on 4/Feb/06
Two more good ones with Hingis on Saturday:

End of 2004, Hingis reaching Maria's nose
http://www.mariaworld.net/offcourt370.jpg

In the pic that Gramps posted, the angle proves deceptive but Hingis barely reaches Maria's chin...
Vlis said on 4/Feb/06
I say she's 6-2.5

[Editor Rob: you could argue each height for both hingis/sharapova...

one thing - hingis really doesn't look near 170cm, even the 169cm is shaky - a few british newspapers listed her recently 168cm...that may be closer to the truth]

Photo of Maria with the 5'6.5" Hingis taken today!

Yeah, Maria has pretty killer heels on in that photo. http://www.mariaworld.net/offcourt1133.jpg
Alex said on 2/Feb/06
Don, if she was 3 inches taller than her that makes her 6'4 which isn't true. If she was 3 inches taller than him then she may have had bigger shoes on, or he could be shorter then hes saying. Also that 3 inches could have been more like 1-2 inches.

see the difference between maria and martina http://www.mariaworld.net/offcourt1141.jpg maria got to be 6'4 like don the man said

[Editor Rob: Not sure footwear is similar]
Don the Man said on 31/Jan/06
My friend went to see Maria a few days ago in a tennis match. He got to go down on the court and meet the tennis players. Now, he is 6'1'', but he said that when he was standing next to sharapova, she was a good 3 inches taller than him.
