Will Smith footwear appears to be some Supra TK.
Pleb said on 27/Nov/13
@SAK With Bolt, Nadel had over an inch in footwear, Bolt was virtually in flats.

@SAK Here's the vid with Smith and Djokovic: Click Here Not the best quality afraid.

At 0:53-1:00 when the shots was taken, none of them were standing up straight, in fact they were all posing to be the same height, Smith had one leg in front of the other and was slightly leaning forward.

At 0:37 secs onwards you can get the best view of Smiths footwear, looks to be some black trainers that gives less than the typical tennis shoe.

Also notice at 0:37 when Nadal is posing with Smith, he is balancing himself on one leg to appear taller...


Click Here With 6f4.5 Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Zlatans eye level looks to be above Nadals head.

Interesting shots with 181cm/5ft11.5 listed Nene:

Click Here Next to Will Smith unfortunately cannot see footwear.

But he seems to pretty similar height to 6f1/6f1.5 guys.

more than six inches

Pleb said on 18/Nov/13
The only way Rafa would make up the height difference is if his neck is 2-3 inches longer than David Camerons. Plus David Cameron is in a relaxed posture there, one leg in front of the other, dropping an inch or more. So no, my evidence strongly suggest Nadal is under 6ft, more in the 5'11 range.
MD said on 15/Nov/13
Are we looking at the same picture (one I'm sure has been posted here many times before), Pleb? Rafa is clearly losing height with his stance and a slight bending at the neck, and yet he STILL looks almost identical in height to the prime minister. If that's the picture you're going to show to "prove" he's 5'11", you've given evidence for quite the opposite.
Pleb said on 12/Nov/13
5'11 guy. Clearly shorter than a 6ft0.5 David Cameron.

I have never understood...how people can say that Nadal looks shorter than 1.84.
I mean seriously is ridiculous, he is a tall guy..there can be any doubt..there are people who are 1.80-1.82 and are seen as tall people...so i guess it could be for his posture.

Here Nadal with Djokovic...I mean if the serbian is 1.87 then nadal is a legit 1.84...my point is Nadal doesn't look like a short person next to Djokovic..both look tall

Strangely resembles his arch rival Roger Federer in the above pic. Could be 6ft0.25/184cm but probably no less. I agree with Anon, he does edge out weak 6fters, so 182cm is out of the question.

Federer generallt looks about 2cm taller than Nadal
Lurk said on 10/Sep/13
Looks no more than a flat 6 feet most of the time. 1 1/2 inch shorter than Djokovic I think.
Balrog said on 9/Sep/13
In the final it was obvious that Djokovic was a good 4cm taller than Nadal. Close to 2in difference.
Radd said on 3/Sep/13
I have seen them many times stand together. Nadal is 185 guy for sure, Federer 186, nole between 187-188 cm and Murray is 189.

Its safe to say 185-189 cm is the best height for a tennis player.
Daniele said on 2/Sep/13
Tennis players's listings are pretty accurate. If not 185cm, 184cm seems correct.
Balrog said on 29/Aug/13
Radd in none of your pics we can see footwear. Nadal is 183cm. I clearly remember he was listed at that and he suddenly got pumped at 6'1"
Radd said on 27/Aug/13
Nadal is 185, he has clear advantage on all 6 foot people listed.

chris said on 10/Aug/13
would say he looks more 6ft with his body but he's probably 184/185 and Federer is more 185/186.
Ras said on 28/Jun/13
Arch Stanton says on 25/Jun/13
The guy who beat him yesterday is listed at 5 ft 10 and Nadal looked easily 3 inches taller. I suspect Darcis was more 5'9.5", but Nadal did look a full 6'1" guy in comparison and taller than 6'.
-----------------------
Darcis is listed as 177cm, so my guess is that he is 5'9.5".

He's listed as 6'5.5 here but I'd give him more like 6'4 since he doesn't look that tall next to some other people.

Federer is a legit 6-1" guy imo,nadal looks a 6-0" guy.
Anon said on 18/Jun/13
@ Sak. I think your estimates are nearly there. But I would place Rafa:

185.5cm out of bed.
184.5cm in late morning.
183.5cm at night, or 183cm after a tennis match as a result of full spinal compression.
SAK said on 12/Jun/13
Anyone posting anything lower then 6f/183cm for Rafa, are the posters who pretty much downgrade everyone. There are some celebs who do deserve downgrading. But Rafa is not one of them.

185 - morning
184 - most of the day (most relevant)
183 - late at night
Balrog said on 11/Jun/13
Ferrer is 5'8''. Nadal is 6'0''

Its fair to say he is definately not below 6ft.

In this video he holds his own really well next to Felipe. In my book he's definitely 184-185 cm tall.

Alexandra says on 11/May/13
He looks shorter because he has large shoulders and a muscular body, but he's the exact same height as Roger Federer, 1.85 cm. I have seen almost all of their matches together and in similar tennis shoes and standing next to each other they are the same height.

I doubt many would agree with that. Federer has always looked a bit taller to me, 2 cm difference looks accurate to me.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Jun/13
Martin says on 16/Apr/13
I find it hard to believe this guy is 184 actually. Might be his tallest though but 182 is more probable.

Hardly. I watched the Nadal vs Ferrer match earlier. Ferrer is listed at 5 ft 9 and pretty much looks near it 5'8.5"-5'9" by his proportions and Nadal looked almost 4 inches taller. Nadal looked virtually 6'1" in comparison. 184-5 is fine, i'd lean more on 6'12 than 6' to be honest. Sub 6 ft is just laughable. He's a tall guy, see him next to average guys like Ferrer.
avi said on 9/Jun/13
Murray must be 6'2 as Nadal is 2 inches shorter.I think he is 6 flat 5'11 is too low cause that would mean Federer would be 6'0 only and he is 6'1 flat.

He is clearly an inch or more shorter than a 6'05 David Cameron. So a typical 5'11 guy that gets passed off for a solid 6'1...

Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 14/Feb/13
@ Elijah - Well Rob said 29-32 is average for a guy of my height so technically im upper average in terms of leg size having 32". Nothing to write home about but tbh I think I have a noticably long femer bone but my tibula/fibula part of my leg looks shorter proportionatly.
SAK said on 14/Feb/13
@Elijah, you must have long legs in proportion to your height. Because 32" is better suited for 5f11/6f guys.

Nadal, has average length legs (maybe a little shortish) compared to his height. I think his physique gives the impression he is shorter then he actually is.

@UK183: When you have that much of an excess on your jeans, it means it's too big, and barefoot you'd be treading on it. I am 182-183cm and not even a 34" does that for me, that is the size that I wear all the time and I get only a single "break" at the front from when it overlaps my shoe/boot and barefoot I don't tread over it at all, which means that it's definitely not too big for me. I would probably have to go the next size up, like 36" for me to get the same effect as in this picture.

So since you get that effect on a 34", it's definitely too big for you.

@Balrog and Dean: Every 5'9" guy I have met and asked wears a 32", so I don't think it's long. But I have never met another guy who is 6' or 6'1" with a 34" like me. I have seen some 6'2" and 6'3" guys like that but even among guys that tall, a lot or maybe even most have a 32". So it looks like 32" might be the "norm" for guys between about 5'9 and 6'2".
Peyman-6ft said on 1/Feb/13
@john
nice observation on him , yea thats how I look like too . I am actually 6feet but I give the impression of a (5'10''-5'11'') guy . It's not good but what can I do about it ?! That's my naturality .
I also don't have short legs or arms , they're just averagish ,
many people tell me every now & then : '' oh I thought you're shorter like 179-180 but now I see a 184 guy!!'' & I say I'm 183 & 75kg !!
I guess I just have small hands & feet
we are stretched out average guys as you said ! Lol
John said on 31/Jan/13
Sak, yeah they seem mostly legit with a couple exceptions.

It's surprising actually because I think some of the weights are definitely wrong. The weights seem 'user submitted' either by the players themselves or someone in their team. Many of them are never updated even when a player has clearly lost or gained weight.
SAK said on 29/Jan/13
@John, I do get what you are saying about Nadal, and actually agree with it as well.

He gives the 5f11 impression.

In general tennis listings are pretty accurate or close enough.
John said on 29/Jan/13
Also to add, I think the photo of Rafa here is evidence of him looking not that tall even though he is pushing 6'1. What I mean is, I think he is actually taller than he comes across...but his proportions look shorter.

He is obviously not a short guy, but just from looking at him I would guess 5'11. He has that slightly taller than average but definitely not 'tall' look with a longish torso, shorter limbs and athletic frame. Kind of like Agassi...except Nadal actually is borderline tall and is like a stretched out average guy if that makes sense.
John said on 28/Jan/13
Sak, excellent find! I think it is evidence for Nadal and Fed are close in height as they are right next to each other and you can see Fed is only slightly taller.

The biggest surprise in this picture is the disparity between Novak and Murray. At times they look within a cm of each other...but here Novak looks 6'1.5 max and Andy looks 6'2.5+ Hmmmmm....not sure what to make of it.
SAK said on 27/Jan/13

All in similar footwear. Good for comparison.
John said on 20/Jan/13
It depends, usually there is slight bunching but not as much as in that picture. I prefer little to none, but there is usually some naturally regardless of the length of the pants, since the pants will naturally go in over the shoes.. Too much like there can look somewhat sloppy imo. Those pants look a little long for Nadal.

I could wear anything from 32 to 34 and make it work. I prefer 32's and to wear them low with little bunching. I wouldn't wear anything less than 32 though as one of the worst looks is when the pants are noticeably too short---looks very unstylish and kind of 'geeky' imo.
Balrog said on 19/Jan/13
A 32 inseam is really common on guys 6'0" and 6'1". That's why I said that it's weird at 5'9'' having a 32 inseam, you must have long legs and a short torso. On the other hand shoes doesn't tell height because I met 5'7'' guys who wears 11 US and I've friend who is near 6'3'' and wears the same 11 US.
UK183cm said on 18/Jan/13
What I am confused about with inseam is whether the bottom of your trousers should bunch up and wrap around your shoe like they are on Nadal in the photo. 32" doesn't usually do that for me, 34 inch would do. Can anyone tell me if that's how trousers should be worn? I think I'll just buy some 34" trousers and see what they're like.
John said on 18/Jan/13
I wear 32 at 6'1, but it is a little short because I wear it low down near my hips. My true size would be a 33, which I think is average for my height.
Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 15/Jan/13
Why is 32 weird for a 5'9? Ask Rob, its 29-32 which is normal for a 5'9 so Im above average but nothing out of ordinary.
@ Peyman - Im 23 and havnt grown since 17. I have a 5'8 wingspan as well so definetly bigger all round in my lower body.
Balrog said on 11/Jan/13
I'm a shy over 6'1'' and I wear 34 inseam depends on what kind of pants. 11 ½ US in shoes. Really weird a 5'9'' with 32 inseam.
Peyman-6ft said on 10/Jan/13
@Dean ,
so we wear the same size
you certainly have tall legs
if I were you , I'd try streching , hanging etc to gain some more height.
It's obviously easier to increase torso than legs .
How old are you now
Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 9/Jan/13
I wear 32 trousers and im barely 176. I must have a proper short torso right!?
Stephen said on 9/Jan/13
i think this guy wears inseem 32.
Josh said on 9/Jan/13
6'0.5 is right
John said on 9/Jan/13
Stephen, thats right...he has a avg/slightly above avg guy proportion...he is like an elongated 5'11 guy...like Agassi if he worked out more and was stretched out 2 inches.
Pedro said on 8/Jan/13
Solid 185 guy he seems the same height as cristiano ronaldo
UK183cm said on 8/Jan/13
His proportions are identical to mine, I am 184.5-182.5. Listing seems pretty good.
Stephen said on 8/Jan/13
look at Nadal proportion, once you see him in a picture alone he doesn't give the impression of a tall guy...but once you see him near Roger Federer who i think is around 185.5 at night he's definitely just a bit shorter just like 1.5cm shorter no more, so 184 cm at night for nadal is a good estimation and claiming 6'1 is ok.
Peyman-6ft said on 8/Jan/13
I agree SAK
SAK said on 7/Jan/13
@Balrog, I myself at times think he is 183cm aswell. I was referring to people who say he is 5f11 on federers page. I think it's fair to say 184 early part of day, 183 later part of day. He hovers around those two numbers.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jan/13
Spot on, and finally....
John said on 7/Jan/13
Jake, I think he is more 184+. I know it seems crazy to squabble over a cm, but I am surprised at some of these 6 foot flat estimations for him. I certainly don't see any major difference in height between him and Fed. To me they look very, very close in height.
John said on 6/Jan/13
Peyman, nope, they are very close. When they stand together, it looks like 1/2 inch at most. Basically there's a small difference, but it's at small as a difference can be and still be noticeable. Definitely not a full inch.

An inch is more the difference between Fed and Djokovic.
Voiceless Dental Fricative said on 6/Jan/13
He always looked a bit shorter than Fed.
Balrog said on 6/Jan/13
SAK, on the court, he looks an inch shorter than Federer who is a legit 6'1'' man plus look at him next to Ibrahimovic.

The listing is the max I could see Nadal, I'd put him at 6'0'' flat, he was listed at that height before fame.
tom said on 6/Jan/13
i met him at queens club,i play and went to watch,nadal was 5 or 6 feet away from me,we both had nikes on,so id say shoe wise its about the same,hes just over 6' im 6-2.5 and i get the felling 6.0 is bang on more or less.
Peyman-6ft said on 6/Jan/13
nadal : 6ft 0.75in out of bed , 6ft 0in when going to sleep
& federer is exactly an inch taller
SAK said on 6/Jan/13
Thanks Rob. So glad you put him up. 184cm is spot on for him. I know many posters will be saying he is lower then this, but he's not.
John said on 6/Jan/13
Finally!

Agree with this listing.
