183cm or 184cm sounds perfect
JustForFun said on 10/Jan/19
@Jason KL 100% agree with those 4 measurements. Actually here in Spain at my gym we know Rafa is an exact 182 cm guy told by his own coach but in terms of ATP , marketing they rounded up with shoes. My friend Alberto is a personal trainer who usually trains with Rafa and he is 184 cm and I asked him how tall he would guess Rafa's height. He told he once did a test checked for the bodyfat % and Rafa was measured 182 cm at the stadiometer but he told me Rafa claims he is 183 cm but in tennis they rounded up. Alberto who is 184 cm told me he had 2 cm on him so he is clearly 182. Actually he was listed till 2006 at 182 cm on the ATP. Maybe 183.5 is his morning height .
Murray's height is 187 cm his own words: 187.5 of course it must be the highest claim. Federer is exactly 1.5 to 2 cm on Rafa and Djokovic looks 1 cm shorter than 187 Murray.
Jason KL said on 7/Jan/19
Many apparent contradictions re: the heights of Federer, Djokovic, Murray etc. are resolved when you understand that Nadal is only 182ish cm tall (i.e. weak 6 foot). Occasionally appearing fractionally taller due to footwear.
These are the most likely measurements (shoes off, measured in afternoon):
Nadal - 182
Federer - 184
Djokovic - 186
Murray - 187
Johnson said on 7/Oct/18
@danielgb if you know Nadal you should ask him his height etc I am also curious if they are measured every year
I read words straight out of his physio and said some years ago that he was not 1.85 anymore and he was 186 and a half exactly
Perhaps that year was overmeasured or bust a gut or error of measurement... I would like to know the things I said first
said on 4/Oct/18
Rob trust me.. Nadal's height is 6'0 barefeet. He is a perfect 6 footer barefeet. I know him since I was 16 years old training in Barcelona. I'm 6 at evening 182'8 cm but I wake up at 184,1 cm and we are identical eye to eye. He is not over 6'0. I know he has bad posture and looks 5'11 range at times but for at a medical measurement time I've heard he was 6'0, Actuallty when he was 18-20 he was listed on ATP at 6'0. Next year he became a PRO and the isting was 6'1 lol
Nadal can pull off looking over 6ft when he stands reasonably well.

Zampo said on 12/Sep/18
The more I've seen of Nadal over the years, I feel there is a high probability that he is a 6'0 flat guy.
said on 6/Jun/18
Very close to RamosClick Here
Maybe Ramos is more 5'11.75-6' and Nadal more 6'-6.025"
He was listed at 183 for his first Roland Garros in 2005 then from 2006 onwards almost all the sources gave 185.His shape is really awkward and he looks shorter when he's alone in some pics unlike Federer.

Full agree dude. My guesses are exactly as yours. I also know Rafa is 182 range. My friend has a pic with him he is 5'11 and Rafa was a bit taller. 6'1 maybe with sneakers. But he is not over 5'11.75. Roger is 6'0.75 I heard he is 2 cm over Rafa and Novak is 186 range Murray 187 range. Perfect guesses.
noelgally said on 3/May/18
I think he's somewhere in between 182-183cm.
1. I saw him in person once and he looked 6'1 in shoes but I remember reading that he wears insoles in his tennis shoes which means he could be getting anywhere between 1.25 to 1.5 in shoe height. I think this is why he always looks closer to Federer,Djokovic, Murray etc.. in tennis gear but the gap is larger when you pictures of them off the court
2. Nadal looks to have longer than average legs for his height which gives the illusion of being taller
3. Google picture of Nadal with Leonardo Dicaprio. Granted you can't see their footwork but it seems that if the general thought is of Dicaprio being no more than 5'11 (and their footwork is the same) Nadal would be struggling to hit 6' let alone 6' 1/4inch
4. Search for picture of Nadal with Grigor Dimitrov on Nadals Instagram page taken in Monte Carlo with them in non tennis gear
Dimitrov looks like he's at least an inch and a half above him. Dimitrov looks shorter than murray and same as djokovic which would mean he's about 6'1 1/2.
My guesses (based off of murray being 187.5cm
I really think a lott of tennis players height listings are with tennis shoes on(Like in basketball)
samuelgoup said on 30/Mar/18
Rafa is 6' 6'0.15 cause he is 182 to 183 close friends know
said on 24/Mar/18
Rob, could he be 6ft1 out of bed?
It's very likely he is...although variation in height shrinkage can mean one person loses 1cm and another the same height loses 2.5cm.
Big Al of Bondi said on 23/Mar/18
He’s about half an inch down on Roger, despite both being listed as 6’1. Either he’s 6’0.5 or 6’1if Federer is 6’1.5.
said on 12/Feb/18
@Rob Click Here
How tall do you think the woman is without the heels she's wearing?
A chance she is a couple of inches taller...the platform on her shoes look like they'd give an overall fairly large amount of height.
James the real one
said on 10/Feb/18
Both Nadal and Ramos are 1.83 (6 ft):
MAD SAM said on 21/Jan/18
Very handsome guy, I think he’s 183 cm
said on 19/Jan/18
Rob, how do you explain this guy looking at least 5in shorter than Sonny Bill Williams?
I came onto Rafas page almost expecting a massive downgrade!
Sonny is gaining height going on his toes a bit, look at his right foot...he's been caught tip-toeing a little.
No jeremy piven though!
said on 18/Jan/18
Hey rob, if Nadal was looking at his nose how tall would he in cm? Would he be 187 cm? Here's the link: Click Here
Looks near 3 inches in that photo!
said on 18/Jan/18
Hey rob, what does Nadal claim?
He's been down as 6ft 1 for a while on his official site, like back in 2011 he was listed there at "6'1" (185 cm), Weight: 188 lbs (85kg)"
hambubger said on 26/Dec/17
Nadal weak 6'1" - maybe a strong 6'0".
Federer solid 6'1"
Novak / Murray weak 6'2".
Most tennis players don't fudge their heights with the exception of women close to or just above 6' who do seem to be adding an inch or two. Strange isn't it?
Johnson said on 28/Nov/17
@Height well said man!!!
James likes to compare pictures at distance
Anonymous said on 28/Nov/17
go to the video on youtube titled R.Nadal - R.Federer Final Roland Garros 2007. You notice rafa at around 40 seconds is listed at 1.88m. So I thought the measurement was in tennis shoes but roger is listed at 1.85m. wierd.
Investigator said on 26/Nov/17
Hey Rob. What do you reckon Nadal's absolute low is?
Mr6footer said on 23/Nov/17
Several contacts and friends I know Rafa is beteween 182-183 cm. The cousin of one of my best friends say he is 182 183cm but the rounded up to 185 so is tennis is business and always in every sports they tend to round up heights. I know what I'm talking about. I could give you names and for sure Rafa is maybe 183 at morning.

This proves pics don’t mean much
Raadd said on 30/Oct/17
People dont understand the concept of Bad posture, in many pictures Rafa looks taller than Roger and also in many Roger is the taller one. I think Rafa is 185 Cm, same as Roger who has a perfect posture..
Johnson said on 24/Oct/17
Nadal is 184.5 and taller than Gasquet. He slouches and has bad posture
said on 23/Oct/17
@James those pictures are not good, you can´t compare height at a distance or from pictures from the chest up where you can´t see the feet.
Van Persie seems to be at least a good 3 cm taller than Danny Welbeck:
Anonymous said on 20/Oct/17
i think he might be closer to federer than what people think
Reece said on 17/Oct/17
No less than this listing and probably 6-0 1/2. He only looked half a inch shorter 2 days ago Shanghai runner up awards imo
Reece said on 8/Oct/17
Trapp listed as 6-2.5. He looks bigger than that in the pic. Could be a bad angle.
said on 27/Sep/17
Hey rob, how tall is the bloke on the right?
Editor Rob: in that photo he could seem a good 6ft 3 range.
Ted said on 26/Sep/17
Looks 5' 11.5.
said on 24/Sep/17
I am the biggest Nadal fan. But I do think he could be 6 ft flat.
Check it out this interview , Rob:
Nadal looks an inch shorter than Federer. In this pic too:
I think Nadal is a legit 6 ft, but Wawrinka is obviously a bit under 6 ft.
Filippo said on 22/Sep/17
Slightly smaller than federer.
I'd go with 182,5 centimeters for Rafa, nothing more.
Tennis players are all measured with shoes on, but sharapova. She is indeed measured while standing on the top of her pocket.
Johnson said on 14/Sep/17
Gasquet is 2 cm shorter than Nadal I would say
faza said on 13/Sep/17
This listing seems good probably a solid 6'1 in nike sneakers I think 6'0.5 is possible but thats the most he probably looks but he is a legit 6'0 range going off he always did a bit shorter than Federer, One of the Greatest tennis players and as you say still has a couple yrs left barring he gets no more injuries.
said on 11/Sep/17
Nadal won his 3th US Open yesterday!!! Did anyone watch the match? I love tennis lol.
Editor Rob: it may not quite be the last time I update that total...there's still a few years left with nadal.
James said on 11/Sep/17
16 Grand Slams since yesterday :).
Anonymous said on 9/Sep/17
I remember reading somewhere that Nadal wears insoles in his shoes while playing tennis. Assuming other players don't, that could give him an extra 1cm or so in pictures where they are in tennis gear. I saw him in his tennis gear about 5 years ago from about 10 feet away and he looked 6'1ish with shoes
Mark(5'9.5") said on 6/Sep/17
Nadal doesn't always have the best posture, but he is a strong 6'0"er. Under 6'0"? Naaaahhh.
Johnson said on 28/Aug/17
@Filippo but you know... imperial system is poor they only care about 5'9 5'10 5'11
Most people don't say fraction. So If Serena is 5'9.25 for example is typical to say: 5'9
Filippo said on 27/Aug/17
Serena is probably one of the very few honest tennis players out there.
She would have all the reasons to claim a bigger height (especially since she suffered the comparison with her taller, maybe cuter sister a few years ago), but did not. She prefers to speak with her tennis, instead.
All other players, above all starlette-sharapova, are not that honest and largely overestimate themselves.
Johnson said on 25/Aug/17
@James if Nadal is 184 flat at most, Serena is still taller than 175.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Aug/17
A very strong 6ft guy
Tallish89 said on 22/Aug/17
Strong 6 foot
said on 13/Aug/17
@Johnson There is no way in hell that Nadal is 184.5, stop with this nonsense:
Nadal is no more than 1.84 flat at most.
said on 5/Aug/17
Nadal and 5'9.5 or 5'9.25 Serena Williams
@Rob when will you update Serena? if Nadal 6'0.25 Serena is taller than 5'9 flat
Johnson said on 31/Jul/17
I see Trapp 189 and Nadal 184.5. Nadal has wors posture
Dave said on 28/Jul/17
Kevin Trapp looks 3 inches taller than Nadal. Based on that I would put Nadal at 6 ft roughly.
Reece said on 28/Jul/17
Says Trapp is 6-2.5 and Nadal 6-1. The difference looks more noticeable than that though. Maybe it's a worse angle or footwear? Trapp looks 2.5-3 inches taller.
said on 25/Jul/17
Rob how tall does the guy next to nadal look?
Editor Rob: can seem almost 3 inches taller there.
Reece said on 23/Jul/17
Zverev is easily 6-6 maybe a bit over.
said on 18/Jul/17Click Here
6-0,25 for Nadal means Boris becker is 6-0,25 or less - absolutly impossible!
Chris said on 17/Jul/17
I still believe that this is the most he is as he looked barely anything taller than wawrinka who i personally believe is a stocky 6 foot. I think nadsl also wears fractionally thicker sneakers at times. As for zvervev his frame makes him look taller same for kyrgios.
Zvervev-6"5.25 just a little taller than berdych also I think zvervev older brother is in the similar range to Murray and Djokovic.
RichardSpain said on 17/Jul/17
To me he is between 183 -184cm barefoot. 184 cm morning. 183 after playing tennis in the afternoon.
Spanish said on 14/Jul/17
If Federer is 185 then Rafa 183, but If Federer is 186 then Rafa is 184. I always see 2 cm between them.
IMO Rafa is 184. I think you should add 1 cm to Federer.
Reece said on 8/Jul/17
Nadal looked a inch taller to me.
Filippo said on 7/Jul/17
Rafa looks a lot closer to Wawrinka as he is supposed to, according to their official listing.
I guess no more than 1-2 centimetres between them.
With Federer at 185, i would say:
Bard said on 7/Jul/17
Strong 6' sounds about right, visibly shorter than Federer but not much.
Gonzalo said on 23/Jun/17
Rob, you should update Nadal´s records: he has won 15 Grand Slams, not 14. The second one in tennis history, after Roger Federer.
To me he is no less than 1`84. He looked taller than Wawrinka in Roland Garros and Wawrinka is listed at 1`83.
James said on 16/Jun/17
I agree with Juan, Rafa could be 6' 0.5", but no more.
said on 15/Jun/17
In 2005 ATP billed him 6ft flat. IMO that's way more realistic. There's a video with CR7 in soccer boots and Nadal in Tennis shoes, Ronaldo still a solid inch taller... So no more than 5ft 11.5 for Rafa.
Johnson said on 15/Jun/17
This year's Nadal sneakers are like 1 cm taller than average sneakers
Appe 183.3cm said on 13/Jun/17
@Juan I saw the photo you are talking about.
IMO Nadal is not 185cm, but Enrique Iglesias is not 187cm tall.
Iglesias 186cm (he could very well be 6'1 flat at the end of the day).
Appe 183.3cm said on 12/Jun/17
Yesterday, Roland Garros final, he looked very similar to Stan Wawrinka.There is no more than 1cm between them: Wawrinka only looks shorter becuase of his phisical appearence.
Juan said on 11/Jun/17
Rob there IS a recent photo next yo Enrique Iglesias In Miami, listed 187 similar footwear and they look te sale height.
Im starting yo believe The 185 official listing.
What do you think?
Juan said on 11/Jun/17
@James you were right! Rafa its Going to win Roland Garros. Rafa look 184-185 cms. Rob,keep it at 6ft 1/2
pjk said on 11/Jun/17
With Ronaldo ( 6'1" ) in football shoes on a grass court and Rafa in tennis shoes he looks about an inch shorter to me so i would guess 182 but he does slouch so maybe 6' flat fully stretched but not over.
Animus said on 26/May/17
Based purely on the picture above, I wouldn't say he looks much over six feet. He definitely doesn't have the appearance of a six-foot-one guy in that picture.
Johnson said on 18/May/17
Sorry I messed with Federer official website
said on 13/May/17Click Here
In this pic, 1.83 listed Sergio Ramos looks slightly taller than Nadal. Thic pic completely refutes the 184.5 guess by Johnson.
Nadal is 1.84 flat at most.
@Johnson You are wrong, Federer is listed as 1.85 (not 1.86) in the official ATP page:
Johnson said on 10/May/17
Centimetres is the best system. Nadal is listed 6'1 and 185 and Federer is listed 6'1 and 186
billy said on 10/May/17
Looks 6-0.5 1.5 inches shorter than Djokovic who is 6-2 imo.
Caspar said on 9/May/17
Nadal looks a bit shorter than Federer to me. i think Nadal is 184.5cm just a bit shorter than 185-185.5cm Federer.
J5'8 said on 7/May/17
Can look 6'1 at times
James said on 5/May/17
These are some of the offical ATP listings:
Mumrray: 6' 3"
Djokovic: 6' 2"
Federer: 6' 1"
Nadal: 6' 1"
Why are not they more precise? Why don't they put Nadal as 6' 0.5" or 6' 0.25"? I mean, nobody can be in the middle point between 6' and 6' 1". You are either 6' or 6' 1". The ATP doesn't list any player as 6' 0.5".
James said on 30/Apr/17
I think Nadal is around 1.84, more or less.
willy4400 said on 27/Apr/17
Rafa nadal is 182 cm. I know this because I live in Manacor, Spain and his cousin is my friend who's height is 185 cm and he look more than inch taller. My height is 182,5 cm at evening and sometimes I look taller than him. Rafael personally knows he is 182 cm and his team, but always raise height to Top players for Marketing. This is the truth! I also know Rofer Federer is 183'5 cm and Murray 187,5 cm not 190 cm. Murray actually has claimed 187,5 cm. People dont even know what is real height barefoot! I work for Sanish TV sports and here we all know whatis marketing.
Listen all, 90% of famous people height is lower.
Jack said on 17/Apr/17
Nadal looks half a inch shorter than Federer when both stand proper. i think he is 6-0.5 and Federer 6-1. so that is 184.5cm and 185cm.
Johnson said on 15/Apr/17
@James how tall are you?
James said on 10/Apr/17
@Ollie Why do you upgrade everybody? Nadal, Djokovic and Murray deserve an upgrade according to you. Anybody else? LOL. Anyway, I agree with you! Kyrgios deserves a page!
Ollie said on 10/Apr/17
I would love a page for Krygios and Zevrev. they both look their 6-4 and 6-6 listings.
Ollie said on 10/Apr/17

6 ft Nadal with 1.86 listed Kaka:
Jane said on 6/Apr/17
Nadal 184cm at the least.
said on 4/Apr/17
Rob, could you consider adding a page for the 6' 4" young tennis talent Kyrgios? I love his playing style, and he is one of the main favorites to win Wimbledon 2017.
To me, Kyrgios looks a solid 6' 4" next to 6' 1" Roger. Canson opinion would be very helpful on this issue.
James said on 4/Apr/17
I'm 100% sure Rafa will win Roland Garros 2017. Living proof that 6 ft is the ideal height to play on clay.
Johnson said on 18/Mar/17
@Canson I am not Johnson36
Pierre said on 18/Mar/17
@Johnson= A little angle of the camera which could maybe favors Rafael(see the wall).Bradley is looking the same height as Rafael.I don't see Rafael and Bradley as tall as David Cameron( who is listed 6"0.5').Imo David is taller than Bradley and Rafael by at least one inch
Canson said on 17/Mar/17
@Johnson: but you saying James loves to downgrade Nadal.
You have upgraded lets see:
And don't know if you are Johnson36 but you said Jordan is 6'5.5. It's right there. His own peers say he's 6'4/6'5. George Gervin being one of them and he's 6'7.
Johnson said on 16/Mar/17
@James sorry Sharapova is as tall as Bradley Cooper. 0.5 cm taller maximum for her. Yes Cooper is taller than Nadal but Cooper is 186!! You love to downgrade Nadal
Johnson said on 15/Mar/17
Pierre, there is a slope in the picture of Cameron and Nadal

@Tut Tut Nadal is shorter than 6' 0.5" Bradley Cooper and Bradley Cooper is shorter 6' 1" than Federer.
said on 14/Mar/17Click Here
Nadal is 6-1 easily in fact in the Picture i posted he looks a strong 6-1. he doesnt look more than 1cm shorter than Godin.
James said on 13/Mar/17
Regardless of height, we are watching one of the golden era of tennis with the Big Four (Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray) as well as Wawrinka. I know in the future there will be new generations of tennis legends, but nothing will be the same for me. I will miss the Big Four seriously. Those Federer-Nadal finals, those amazing matches between Djokovic and Rafa, and the fantastic performance of Murray against Djokovic and Federer in the 2012 London Olympic Games. Oh my god, I will never forget this golden generation.
Johnson said on 11/Mar/17
@James Bradley Cooper is similar to Sharapova my friend he is close to 186 cm
Johnson said on 1/Mar/17
@Canson No I don't think Jordan is 6'5.5, in my site I give him a little under 6'5.25 mark... but we also debate heights there. As about Justin Bieber, I list him 173 but there are another user claiming 175 for him and another one 1.74... we debate and swap opinions...in 2007 Rose was measured in shoes 6'3.5 and in 2008 6'2.5 with shoes and 6'1.5 without. It looks a lot of difference. Also Lillard measured 6'1.75 barefoot you can say it is early morning but even so he could be later a fraction down. So Lillard could be 6'1.25. Rose appeared quite taller than him. Also Obama is 6'1 and Curry looks 1 inch taller easy... And then we have Ricky Rubio. But I meant I don't inflate "claimed height by people" I do not talk about thinking he is taller than the listing by Rob that is another thing. Curry claims 6'3 but I don't think he is that mark in my listed hours (2 hours after waking up)
Canson said on 27/Feb/17
@Johnson: you do. Go look st Lebron's page. You say he's 203. He's not. You also say melo is 200 when you backed your Lebron claim down. Melo is 198-198.8. You said once Kobe was 196.4 because you believed pique to be over 6'4 or 6'4. He's not he's 195. You said ibra's 194 height (directly to me) shouldn't be taken seriously because we didn't hear the last digit. You were implying he could've been 195. He's not. Rob has his measurements on his page of 194/194.5 and they mostly take place morning. So he isn't above 194-194.3 most likely. Same with Kaka and the other soccer players you have added a cm here and there and James can reaffirm that. You said Jordan is 6'5.5 that's an inch off. Rose measured 6'1.5 and most people say he is a flat 6'1 and you're giving a shoe height. Westbrook you swear is 6'3 he was 6'2.25. Steph curry you tried to convince me he measured in a hotel and was 6'3. His pre draft barefoot is 6'2 not 6'3. And people who have met him say he's not over 6'1.5 tops. Remember the NBA doesn't do 1/8" increments (may have really been 6'1 7/8) and could've been what you call a bust a gut remember it was 630am so that's not more than an hour out of bed. I'm not picking on you at all because I do respect you but my point to you as is James's point is you do sound like you are a bright individual but you make yourself sound less intelligent when you have to argue things like you use 2-3 hrs out of bed and using excuses saying people grew up on most people you comment. That is always a reason just not to have to downgrade when common sense would say an athlete will generally inflate or use a shoe height they don't downgrade themselves. Kevin Durant or Garnett claiming their barefoot heights or rounding down half inch is considered downgrading just because they don't accommodate others by inflating themselves. That's the height game for you. I know so because I can't count how many times I'm guessed taller because I'm long for my height. While I like being tall I want to be the height I am not taller and that's the case with many guys who are 6'4+. Which is why you perceive them taller because they are really the height they claim not what someone else wants them to be on their watch
Johnson said on 27/Feb/17
@Canson for example I don't think Michael Jordan is 6'6 and that is what he claims, I think he is shorter... so don't say I inflate claims. The only people that I think is taller than his claim is Andy Murray. Leaving aside Kobe and and his dispute of different claims. The other claims by people sometimes I believe them but many times I think they inflate their heights.
Canson said on 25/Feb/17
@James: i agree with everything you said!
@Johnson: again I respect you but you are an interesting poster. You take pre draft and combine and claimed measurements many of which can occur in the morning and inflate them. You do inflate almost every person you comment on. No need to show you just look at Ibra's page or Kobe's or Pique's or Lebron's or Jordan's or even the other soccer players you comment on. I guess that's the world we live in tho today. Nobody is ever not as tall as they claim it's the person they are compared to is taller than they claim that they are. Don't know why anyone would undersell how tall they are there is no incentive in it but people see incentive in lying up because it helps their self esteem which is why people lie up.
Johnson said on 24/Feb/17
Anyway I don't know Cooper's height there is a pic where he stands taller than Federer
Johnson said on 24/Feb/17
@James The picture of Bradley Cooper, Nadal and Federer is terrible!! Probably Cooper is 186. I won't comment on that picture
said on 22/Feb/17
This pic refutes your previous one. Sharapova is taller than Braadley Cooper.
Now, do you have any single pic refuting the fact that Bradley Cooper is taller than Nadal?
said on 21/Feb/17
@James everybody can use a pic to downgrade a celebrity
Bradley Cooper and Sharapova
Johnson said on 21/Feb/17
Moya claims 190 but I think he is a good 189
WAYNE said on 20/Feb/17
If Carlos Moya is 190 cm then Rafa is nothing under 185, I would even say he looks 187 cm range next to him
said on 10/Feb/17
Nadal and Diego Godín (solid 187 cm)

@Johnson Zidane can look 2.5 or 3 cm shorter than Cristiano.
Zidane can't be over 183.5 at most, not sure of 1.83
James said on 7/Feb/17
@Johnson Anyway Nadal is shorter than Cooper.

anyway Nadal is as tall as Zidane.
said on 5/Feb/17
Wawrinka is 1.81/1.82 range compared with 1.87 Djokovic:
And Bradley Cooper is slightly shorter than 6' 1" Federer as well as a bit taller than Nadal, as you can see in the pics. So Nadal can't be a full 1.84 like Cooper. 183 or 183.5 is probably his mark. I think Rob is spot on, 6' 0.25" is fine. Nadal is a solid six footer.

Rafa was wearing sneakers with higher platform than Roger in the Australian Open final:
At the beginning of this video you can see that Nadal with relaxed posture is clearly shorter than Federer:
Johnson said on 31/Jan/17
@James I don't know very well how tall Bradley Cooper is... perhaps 185 cm... in that picture is not right beside Nadal so I can judge. But I can judge the pictures where Nadal is with Wawtinka 183 together. I am sure Nadal is 184.5 cm in medical tests without cheating. Federer 185.5
said on 31/Jan/17
Nadal is shorter than both Roger and Bradley Cooper
In some pictures Rafa has a forced posture, while Roger a relaxed one. When they have the same corporal and face pose, Roger looks 2 cm taller.
Johnson I know you will change the main topic. You will talk abouth the Roger-Rafa difference and will forgot that Bradley Cooper is taller than Rafa. That is a fact. But you will put excuses as usual.
Johnson said on 31/Jan/17
And how tall is Grigor Dimitrov? Listed 191 cm but I think he is 189 cm and Sharapova 186.5. Dimitrov very similar to Murray but he would edge him out
James said on 30/Jan/17
@Johnson You are doing it again. You never accept any refuting evidence. Cooper is taller than Nadal in 2 good pictures. Please stop with the excuses Johnson. You are an intelligent guy. You know Cooper is slightly taller no doubt about it.
Johnson said on 29/Jan/17
@James Nadal is clearly taller than Ana Ivanonic 182-183 cm. Today Nadal had a good posture and as @Hijopotamus said, today it looked as he edged Federer out with same shoes. We can't judge pictures of bad stance and I prefer side to side pics
James said on 29/Jan/17
@anon Good point, I have to agree on that one.
James said on 29/Jan/17
@Johnson You are acting like a typical pseudoscientist. Pseudoscientists never accept any refuting evidence. You never accept ANY evidence refuting the 1.84 guess for Nadal. There are valid pics where Nadal is obviously 1-2 cm shorter than Cooper, while Cooper looks shorter than Federer. Nadal and Cooper are on the same level stop with the typical excuses of a pseudoscientist. Nadal is shorter than Cooper, move on.
Hijopotamus said on 29/Jan/17
Rafa was a tad bit taller than Federer just now both standing together with same shoes.
anon said on 26/Jan/17
Yh Nadal looks about this range would measure probabably 183-184cm range, Great Player on a side note prefer him to Roger Federer, Both are very popular guys worldwide, Federer has the better more appealing style to Watch but Nadal always comes over like a genuine Down to earth guy whereas Federer come across Arrogant to me though most top sportsman tend to have sort of Arrogance about them.
It's as if Federer like Djokovic tries too hard to get laughs from People, Nadal is more like Murray in that sense
Jakob said on 25/Jan/17
In that picture Rob put up, I'm seeing:
Berdych (I think that's him) 194
Djokovic 187 (looks smaller there, maybe the depth of his position is off, I think most times he looks that though)
Murray 188 (he looks not straight there)
Ferrer 175 (sometimes he looks less)
Johnson said on 23/Jan/17
@James that picture does not justice to Nadal. And is better to compare side by side. Cooper is far of him the picture. I know how Nadal towers over Bisbal and Arda Turan 175-176
Johnson said on 22/Jan/17
Gasquet is listed 185 cm tall and shorter tan Nadal. 183?

@James, Nadal and Bradley look the same height.
James said on 18/Jan/17
@Johnson Interestingly Ramos never looks over 1.82. And Nadal is still shorter than the full 1.84 (6' 0.5") Bradley Cooper.
Johnson said on 17/Jan/17
Nadal is 184.5 taller than 183 Ramos. Federer is 185.5. Nadal has some height left in the tank as Rob said of Taylor Swift I say it with Nadal. Nadal has bad posture. With gut bust who knows what he reaches... perhaps his psyotherapist got an ertor of measurement at 186.5 the nurse could be short... it is a typical mistake. I doubt Nadal is on tip toes or with shoes on
said on 16/Jan/17
@PK That's a logical fallacy known as argumentum ad hominem. You simply criticize the person who esposes an argument instead of refuting his argument.
Nadal is shorter than 1.84 Bradley Cooper:
So can you explain me in what sense is Nadal under-estimated?
said on 14/Jan/17
@PK Nadal is my favorite tennis player of all time.
But it doesn't change the fact that Nadal is shorter than 1.84 Bradley Cooper:
Nadal is in the 1.83 range rather than a full 1.84.
PK said on 12/Jan/17
Federer is vastly more popular than Nadal or Djokovic.
In fact, there are so many fanatics and worshipers.
And they hate Nadal because Nadal beats Federer so many times (Novak recentl years too).
On internet, there are so many pounding (trolls) on Nadal (and Djokovic ).
These pounding includes their hieght, IMHO. :)
So I'm estimating Federer's height a bit over-estimated while Nadal/Djokovic under-estimated.
James said on 12/Jan/17
@Johnson He used the trip of standing on tiptoe with sneakers. That's the only way Nadal could be 1.87. He is shorter than 1.85 Federer come on, be serious. You know Nadal is obviously under 1.85. Those listings are bullbagoogle and you know it.
Johnson said on 12/Jan/17
@James but my links are not just listings as in Casillas and Benzema case, are words by physiotheraps and sources doing comparison of his growth from junior days to adult.In fact official listings from. ATP doesn't move since debuting ATP at 17. I think he used the "gut method" or "método de la tripa" for measuring that tall anyway.
said on 11/Jan/17
@Johnson Maybe some tennis players are overlisted as NBA players. Pics are sometimes more reliable than official listings, remember Casillas has always been listed as 1.85 and Benzema is now listed as 1.87 at Real Madrid webpage.
Nadal is shorter than 1.84 Cooper, and Cooper is shorter than legit 1.85 Federer.
I would love to see a video where Nadal is measured without shoes. I would be very surprised if he is over 1.83.
Ali said on 11/Jan/17
183cm is his height. 184cm for Fed.186 for djoker, 187 for Roddick and 188 for Murray. Rob you really ought to change that Nadal picture.
Many better ones.

David Ferrer looks 175 cm no less in any case. (Perhaps he would claim 176)
I have 3 more links of medical height of Nadal
186.5 cm (2009)
2010 187 cm
2002 to 2005 from 182 to 186
Chris said on 9/Jan/17
I think the listing before was more accurate could even scrape 185 teatime in my opinion granted he does have big hair but so does federer and at times they don't look really any different. How tall is ferrer? 174 maybe looks a little less than 5"9.

Rob, look at Nadal with Zidane. They have the same height
Johnson said on 3/Jan/17
@James I don't like those pics in movement. In my opinion:
Ramos (solid 6 footer) 183 cm
Van Persie 187 cm
De Gea 190 cm
Wawrinka 183, Nadal 184.5, Federer 185.5, Djokovic 187.5, Murray 188.5
said on 3/Jan/17
Absolutely brilliant job Rob!!!!! This page is very accurate and reliable. Thanks for the downgrade it was really necessary for Nadal :).
Yep, Nadal is for sure in the 1.83-183.5 range, rather than a full 1.84.
With normal (not forced) posture, Nadal looks 2 cm shorter than 185 Federer, so he is for sure 1.83 (6 ft)=
By the way, if you ever think of making a page for Sergio Ramos, I think he is no more than 1.82. Ramos looks 2 cm shorter than 6 ft listed Robin Van Persie:
And Van Persie really looks 6 ft next to 1.87 Henry:
Even if Van Persie is 1.84 (I'm not sure of that), he still looks 2 cm taller than Ramos, so I can't see Ramos being more than 1.82.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 30/Dec/16
He is taller than Wawrinka. I wouldn't go lower than this listing.
Rory said on 29/Dec/16
Nadal definitely edges Wawrinka who has always looked 6 ft range, minimum 182. Federer does look at least half a half inch taller than Nadal though. Nadal is probably a solid 6'1 out of bed and falls to a comfortable 183 at worst.
Rory said on 29/Dec/16
Hmm the downgrade seems a bit harsh, I think 6'0.5 looked pretty believable when stood tall. 6'0.25 isn't a travesty though, he'd measure it after a match anyhow.
said on 28/Dec/16
Around 183.5 for me...6'0.25"
It is a mark he may well measure.
...I'd put him bang on that mark with the other players, I think even Roddick has a claim of looking 6ft 2 there.
said on 6/Nov/16
Rob, do you think Petra Kvitova is taller than him with the shoes she's wearing on this picture ? Click Here
Editor Rob: depending on their postures - and Nadal at times isn't great - there is a chance of being a little taller
anon said on 4/Nov/16
Djokovic aint 188-189 more chance he is 187 range, Murray claimed 187.5cm if we say Murray is 188cm ( 6'2) he always looks a bit taller than Djokovic, Novak's wesbite had his height listed as 187cm for years before they changed it to the 6'2 188cm going off the Atp stats, I would imagine the official height for Novak was the 187cm that was on his site beforehand.
Rob has him about right- He probably around 6'1.5- 6'1.75
Johnson said on 30/Oct/16
@Rob I think you should renew Carlos Moya thread. He has claimed 190 cm recently @Mark the difference between Roger and Novak is not that high
Mark said on 13/Sep/16
Nadal doesn't always have the best posture. He does look the same with Federer in some cases, but Federer does have an edge on Nadal.
Still, I would put Nadal at 184 - 185 cm when he stands with much better posture. 185 - 186 cm for Federer and 188 -189 cm for Djokovic.

Nadal is a 184 cm guy... never quite reaching the 6'1 mark except in the early morning, then for the rest of the day walks around as a 6'0.5 guy. Always looked at worst an inch shorter than Federer, and he doesn't always have the best posture, however standing up straight, he is most definitely at the 184 cm mark. Vamos!

Nadal is 184,5 in the morning, that's why he gets listed 185 cm. A 184,5 guy is a legit 185, people don't put 0,5 in general measurings. About Pau Gasol, he is 2,15 cm, and Marc Gasol is SHORTER than him. Marc is 2,13 no more

I stayed in Inca Majorca this year. Was lucky to Rafa at the town one day parked near the Market. I stood 6 feet away from him as he was talking to some friends. He had flat sandals type on as did I. I am 6-3" just. I'd say 6-0 even is his height.

Andy Murray tends to have perfect posture that can make him appear past 6'3", when he's no more than 6'2". If any other player has horrid posture, it's Djokovic.
AIO said on 12/Mar/15
People here dont have idea that posture makes a big difference.. nadal (and murray on a lesser extent) has horrible posture.. meanwhile federer and djokovic have solid posture. You can pretty much appear 1-2 inches shorter based on poor posture ... just look how nadal put his sholder and relaxed knees in all pictures.. nadal is 1.85.

Joe Cassillas has always been listed as 5'11 on the Real madrid website and was always pegged at 1m82 other than on soccer computer games. where he is put down as 1'85. It's only this year Real have made his height 1m85 on their website. He never looks as tall as 1m 84 and 1m83 guys like bale and benzema. There is no way casillas ever hits 1'84 during the day let alone 1m 85

Murray is taller than Tsonga, saw them at queens last year even backstage wile it was raining and playing table tennis together and Murray looked an Inch taller or close to it, They even shook hands at the end of it, Tsonga is at least 6'1.5, He looks same as Djokovic for example.
I still think Andy Murray could be more 6'2.25- 6'2.5 area he looks generally more than just a flat 6'2, His claim might have been after all day training its a funny one because Djokovic does look around 6'2 he looked a full Inch taller than Federer at wimbledon and I am not convinced Federer is below 185cm.
176,2Tunman said on 1/Jul/14
good listings in general except for Murray who claimed 187,5 so no more than 6'2 flat rather a weak 6'2.Tsonga seems in the same range,I doubt he would be as short as 6'1.5 so rather 6'2.
Oh,and Sergio Ramos is a true 6'0 but is not a Tennis player,he's a footballer playing for Real Madrid.

7'0" including hair possibly. Here he is by 7'0" measured Shaq (pay attention to the hair):
Seahawksfan, that is not Shaq, it´s Andrew Bynum, listed 7`1 barefoot.
By no means Gasol is 6.10,5. Gasol has been measured above 2`13. The least you can argue for him is 2`12. I saw him playing in Madrid in the 2007 European Championship and he was huge. He was as tall as a guy listed 2`17, and he towered over Kirilenko who is a legit 2`06 guy
As for Shaq, his shoes were thicker than most. Someone posted long ago a link that said that he was 7`1 without shoes

I honestly don't think Nadal is over 6ft at all. If you look at the photo of David Cameron with all the top players Nadal looks a good inch shorter than Cameron. He doesn't seem to have great posture but i think he looks 5'11 or absolute maximum of 6ft but i am not sure about that.
Recently Murray gave his real height and i think if Nadal did the same it would be less than listed.

the other thing is you have to compare people in pictures where they have comparable postures, I have friends my same height and some have bad posture and they appear a tad shorter in pictures than me, however we have measured many times and we are spot on the same height,
Here is a picture of nadal and fed with similar posture (which is rare because rafa tends to bend to the sides meanwhile fed has always striaght back and perect pictures (you can easily appear 1-2 inches shorter than your are when you bend your legs or back while standing up for pictures..)
thats how even rafa and fed are in terms of height.

Murray is at the least 2 inches and at the most 3 inches taller than Nadal, Nadals eye level is consistently just above Murrays mouth by 1-2cm. Now the usual distance from eye to mouth varies in the range of 3-4 inches. You do the math.
Why would Murray undersell his height? If anything he is honest, which indicates integrity, which is seriously lacking in this world. Therefore worthy of respect in my book.
Funny observation I made in my life time within this odd world, lies are accepted at face value, truth is brushed aside. Fascinating...
Pleb said on 4/Jan/14
With Murray Claiming 187.5cm, fat chance for Nadal being a 6 footer. Murray has at least 2 inches on him. Making Nadal a weak 6 footer at best, he's likely to measure 5'11-5'11.5 barefoot, 6'0.5-6'1 in his custom thick sole Nikes.
Nadal being under 6ft isn't going to suddenly make him a worse tennis player is it? Talk about being deluded...

Real Madrid needs to get there stadiometer fixed, Bale listed 183cm has around an Inch on Alonso, Benzema listed 184.1cm is shorter than Bale and looks over an Inch shorter than 186.5cm Ronaldo. Ronaldo is apparently still growing and is taller than Kaka now, maybe Real Madrid stadiometer is just bonkers.
Mourinho is listed 174cm, more chance he is under that than over. Even if he is 175cm, still fat chance of Nadal being over 6ft.
184cm is good for Nadal? Guessed you missed him standing next to a 184cm David Cameron, or space time somehow got warped, distorting the photons when those shots were taken.

With 5'8ish Mourinho and 182cm listed Alonso in flats who always consistently looks 2cm shorter than 183cm listed Gareth Bale.
Jose may have footwear advantage, 1/2 inch at most. Nadal doesn't look like a 6ft plus guy there, even with the advantage of being nearer the camera.

Maybe Nadal have footwear more taller than Federer. That is the explication because they have similar height on court.
Nadal: 6´0.5 (184 cm)
Federer: 6´1.25 (186 cm)
Djokovic: 6´2 (188 cm)
The reason because Nadal is more tallers than atp 6 feets player is obviously they are not 6, they are 5´11 without footwear.

Will Smith footwear appears to be some Supra TK.

@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...
With 6f4.5 Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Zlatans eye level looks to be above Nadals head.
Interesting shots with 181cm/5ft11.5 listed Nene:

I think he could be under listed. He utterly towers Stiller.

more than six inches

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.

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.

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
Here with Murray
And Finally with Cristiano Ronaldo and spanish football player Raul who is supposed to be 1.78

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

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"
said on 27/Aug/13
Nadal is 185, he has clear advantage on all 6 foot people listed.
Look at him next to 182 cm casillas..
Nadal next to 183 cm sergio ramos..
nadal next to 183 cm wawrinka..
Nadal next to 183 cm fernando gonzalez:
Nadal is easily 185 cm (6'1 guy)
Nadal has clear advantage on all people listed as 6 foot tall
what about nadal next to cristiano ronaldo (who is listed 186 cm)
