Well everyone else has been brought down at least 0.25 inch since original listings here so Fed here at 6'1 throws it off a bit. He's clearly closer to Nadal's height than Djokovic's can also see every other top guy has their average guess higher than their listing (based on the original listings before their heights got correctly deconstructed) except for Federer.

I think maybe his status and legend is keeping him at 6'1 here but he's definitely a 6'0 3/4 guy imo.
Nathan Hatton said on 13/Oct/20
Domi agreed maybe a 6ft0.75 listing is fine for Federer, I think at worst a weak 6'1" He always edged out Nadal and looks minimum 1/2 Inch shorter than Djokovic who I think would be about 6'1.5" at worst
Tunman said on 12/Oct/20
Rob,someone on this site mentioned a laser measurement at 184,7.Possibly a measurement after a hard day of training?
Editor Rob
If it exists, would be great if it ever turns up.
Domi said on 11/Oct/20
Nathan I agree, but he is listed at 6'1, not 6'0.75. Both are rounded to 185 cm (6'0.75 is obviously much closer tho at 184.8cm) . Even tho he's British, I've notice Rob usually enters the values in 0.25 inches and then it's translated to metric. Correct me if I'm wrong Rob!
Nathan Hatton said on 10/Oct/20
I think Roger is a weak 6'1" he would probably be 184.5-185cm at worst, so I think the 185cm listing is fine.
Domi said on 4/Oct/20
Rob, would you consider moving Federer to 6'0.75? You have moved Novak down 0.5 inches from his original listing and Rafa down 0.25 inches from his, and it just seems a bit off to have Federer still at 6'1 flat when you look at the 3 relatively.

He is clearly closer in height to Nadal at 6'0.25 than Novak at 6'1.5 to me. He is also quite obviously shorter than C Ronaldo who is listed at 6'1 here.

There was also that program on Eurosport with the 184.6 listing, I have seen that spoken about before on tennis forums too. It is possible that being during the evening and after some athletic movements it was a bit lower than he should be listed at, so I could see a few mm more but not the full 6'1.

Federer, Djokovic, and Nadal are the 3 greatest ever, at least accomplishment wise, and it seems you have Djokovic and Nadal at specific and very precisely correct heights imo, please do the same for Roger! :)
Domi said on 3/Oct/20

Roger is 184cm. Not a full 6'1. Nadal is 6 foot. Roger has wide shoulders.

That guy in the middle must be a solid 187cm minimum, maybe even 188cm. In SA they generally list athletes in centimeters so perhaps 6ft2 wouldn’t be a stretch

What does "weak" and "strong" mean?
What is a weak 6ft and a strong 6ft?
Editor Rob
Weak 6ft could be a person who falls a fraction under it like 1/4 or 1/3rd, a strong 6 footer could be a bit above it, or even at night doesn't fall under 6ft
Nik said on 7/Oct/19
@ Fedfan - Maybe you are right on both scores! He can have his 680th comment!
avi said on 3/Sep/19

Is it possible he is sub 6'1 by night?

Could he be 6'0.5-6'0.75 range?

He seems half inch taller than 6'0ish Nadal.

I thought he was measured at 184 cm which is a weak 6'0.5
Shane Gray said on 29/Aug/19
If I remember correctly he has often been listed/billed as 6'2". Typical shoe height listing, I'm guessing.

Even at 184.6cm he edges fake 6'1 Nadal so he can have 6'1.

Classic 6 ft flat for roger barefeet. Not over. Nadal 5'11.5" . Murray's honest claim reveals this.
Bora said on 14/May/19
I think he is strong 6'1/2" barefoot, and a tennis player should be at 5'11"-6'3" range

Definitely not below 6'1". Without a doubt the greatest tennis player ever!

He could look near 5ft 10, whether he is gaining height being a bit closer I am not sure (how much).
loganheighty said on 29/Aug/18
Rafa is better than Federer. Rafa Nadal is the best tennis player ever. Just compare his records. He had 17 slams knowing just 1 type (Roland Garros) is clay. Imagine If 2 or 3 of those 4 slams are clay. Probably Rafa would had won 5 or 6 slams more than Roger Federer. Roger had more opportunities so 2 Grand slams like Autralia and US Open are strong advantage to him. Rafa just had 1/4 slams of Clay. Rafa had more and better records than him, better stadistics, etc. Since last year a ot of people say Rafa is the best tennis player ever and I agree. Roger was in the past. He is 6'0.75 on the nose. 185 cm on the nose no more. 6'1 is taller than 185 cm

I think the difference between Federer and Murray is like, one of if not the best/only examples of a true 1 inch difference between celebs that we have on this website. Probably closer to 3 cm, but still a perfect example that more people need to look at.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 22/Jul/18

It's about a 3cm difference if you include Federer's footwear advantage. He's wearing thick Air Maxes while Murray's wearing thinner sneakers. Click Here
Tunman said on 21/Jul/18
Click Here:
A good 3cm difference with legit 6'2 Roddick.
Remember that Roger's hair is quite thick especially at the top of his head,it gives more than you would expect.Perhaps anywhere from 6'0.75-1"
Tunman said on 21/Jul/18
Sorry but it looks more 2,5-3cm than simply 2.While I still need to see a vid of that 184,6cm,there's always a possibility he measures that after a game or a long training session.Murray was certainly honest about his claim and I think he also measured after training.In fact this could explain why Murray looks clearly taller than Djokovic despite the latter having been listed at 187 on many places.Djokovic has a genuine chance of being as short as 186 after a game imo.
Rory said on 13/Jul/18

I don't think there's 3cms between them, I see 2cms difference at best. Murray at 187.5 and Federer at 185.5 looks plum to me.

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 11/Jul/18

He looks about 3cm shorter than Andy Murray who admitted to being 187.5. 184.6 is a very believable and reasonable measurement for Federer.
Rory said on 8/Jul/18
I don't believe the 184.6 measurement even at night unless he wasn't standing tall or was measured immediately after a long tough match, but typically looks the epitome of a decent 6ft1 guy. Must be flirting with 6ft2 out of bed.
noelgally said on 3/May/18
Hey Rob do you happen to still have that picture of Glenn with Federer? If Glenn was 5'6 1/2 that would mean Federer was 6 and a half inches taller. I don't remember there being that big of a difference...

184.6cm at night makes him a weak 6ft1

184.6 at night?? if so he's a legit 6ft1
samuelgoup said on 2/Apr/18
Federer could hit 185'4 about 2-3 hours after he wake up knowing he is 184'6 at night (8-9 pm)
samuelgoup said on 2/Apr/18
I agree you Rob. As far as I know Eurosport used to be private or some staff has rules... I just find that reason because the clip should be out there somewhere.. Anyone who can find it link please! Who else remember it?
samuelgoup said on 30/Mar/18
The height measured was just a very short scene and you can find the tenis study was on Eurosport. Not sure 2014 or 2015
Editor Rob
I'm sure it is out there somewhere, although I think it would need help from people to track it down.
samuelgoup said on 28/Mar/18
It was a height scanner shown for his talent moves explaining how good he moves during the game. His weight was 83 kg height 184'6 cm the tv show was at 8pm. Weak 185 guy
samuelgoup said on 28/Mar/18
Rob. Roger is 6'0.75 but of course he would be listed 6'1 in the ATP because they never round down. In Europe always listed 185 cm. I also know he was measured a couple a years ago 184'6 cm but I know it was at night I remember watching thre show at home It was a study of his talent and movements on tenis. If Rofer is 184'6 at night he is a legit 185 cm or weak 185 cm. 6'1 is over 185 cm! Roger is 6'0.75. Rafa is 6'0.25 range.
Editor Rob
If anybody can ever find the 184.6cm program, that would be very interesting as it sounds like a real possible measurement.
Rory said on 24/Mar/18
How is Ronaldo thinner than Federer ? No way.

Rob, do you think that Roger Federer would measure taller than Cristiano Ronaldo? Ronaldo is certainly thinner, so he does give off a taller impression.

186cm before lunch, Rob?
Editor Rob: at 10-11 he may well measure in the 186-186.5 range, but after a big lunch he might be heading to 6ft 1 flat, well just my view of course, I know some people guess him just over 6ft 1 or just under it at his lowest...

Hey rob, do you think Pete Sampras could get his own page. He is a very good player ranked #1 on the ATP site. BTW do you think Nadal Or Sampras Is taller?
Editor Rob: Sampras and Federer can look quite close, whether Pete is shy of 6ft 1 or not is tricky...

so Federer was then measured with the bar over his skull? Or just from distance a kind of laser of pharmacies?

Yes it was similar like a scan stadiometer and I remember red numbers measurement: 184'7 cm.
This makes sense so Murray in fact is 3 cm taller so he claim his height at 187'5cm
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 28/Nov/17
184.7cm for Roger makes sense, I see him as weak 6'1"

Editor Rob: it would be great if you could find this again!
There's no chance he was 6'1.5 knowing Andy Murray stated his height 6ft 1.8in (187.5 cm) and you can see Murray is about 1'5 inch on Federer (3-4 cm). How ever Roger hit 184'7 cm at a an scanner height measurement on a live tv tennis program. This explains the difference beteween Roger and Murray 3 cm.
Rory said on 15/Nov/17
Federer I think is a very solid 6ft1 guy but sometimes comes across as being shorter for two reasons firstly his modest demeanour and also because in modern men's tennis 6ft1 is average height, so he's not going to seem tall.
Canson said on 1/Nov/17
He doesn’t look more than maybe 184 with Michael Jordan

I think 6ft1 on the nose is better for him There isn't much light between a 6ft 1 man and a 6ft 1.5 man. I would be so shocked if this man as high as 6ft 1.5, I think body type can make you look taller than you actually are. I mean he is very lanky and slim built and I think that can make him look taller, I would like to see that interview cannot see why he would claim 6'1.5 he looks at least an inch shorter than Novak Djokovic who is listed just below 6'2, I think Federer is between 6'0.5-6'1
Anonymous said on 5/Oct/17
@presley Well he does seem to at least claim slightly over 6'1" since his website lists him at 186. That said, his ATP profile page lists his height as
1.85 m, although I think this is simply Imperial units converted to SI, since I looked up some other players and none of them have heights that would correspond to half-inches, like 1.87 or 1.89 for example.

I think it might be fair for him to claim 1.86 since we usually see him on the court during tennis matches, when he exerts himself more than usual and thus might fall below his usual low. If he falls to a flat 6'1" after a tennis match then 6'1.25" on a regular day is very believable

I met roger Federer at this years Wimbledon and got an autograph with him, I am 6'3 and I felt like I was a lot taller than him, to me he did not look over 6'0, I am wondering whether the ATP measure the players in their tennis shoes, because there is no way roger is 185-186cm he is listed at without footwear on. Andy Murray is always listed as 6'3 190cm and he claimed he was just under 6'2 and he is at least an 1.5 inches taller than Federer, look at Federer andy Rod**** from the old Wimbledon finals from 04,05,09 he can have 2 plus inches on roger, Federer is really 183cm 6'0 rob I think I can be sure of that !!

Rory said on 19/Sep/17
He does look a legit 6ft1 guy to me. I remember after the Wimbledon final this year watching him walk through the corridors mobbed by people and he looked tall, this when he would have been near his very lowest mark too.
Nearly 5' 10" said on 12/Sep/17
Just checked Hewitt's official profile on the Wimbledon website. He's listed there as ~

Height: 5 ft. 10 in. (1.78 metre)
Weight: 170 lbs (77.3 kilos)

It's closer than the 180 cm listings. But 177 cm would be more accurate, as 5' 9.5" looks to be his absolute low.

Also, there are plenty of pictures of him with Federer and there looks to be slightly more than 3 inches between them.

He wasn't any taller than me. I'm 5' 10.25" (in the morning), so a 177 cm tops guy really...

Nearly 5' 10 said on 12/Sep/17
Hi Rob.

I'm surprised Lleyton Hewitt doesn't have a page on here.

I met him at Wimbledon this summer. He definitely isn't the 5' 11" (180 cm) that he's commonly listed at!

He's 177 cm at best. We were level. Even ground, same sized footwear. I mirrored his posture at times too, just to make sure.

In fact, I'd imagine him to be height twins with Matt Damon.

You should add him. He was a popular champion and proof that average height players can make it in tennis.

Editor Rob: he did for a while, I may give him a page again as the 5ft 10 is the max I'd have thought.
Anonymous said on 9/Sep/17
Yea it's possible he's more 6'0.5 than 6'1. People seem to think 6' is short or something and that Federer Nadal dojo if etc.. Must be well over it. I have a friend who is a legit 6'-6'0.25 and he's taller than most people and people always guess him 6'1 or 6'2. I think a lot of the apt heights are with shoes
Filippo said on 16/Aug/17
I'm starting to think Federer measured himself with shoes on, as everyone else.
He could well stand at 184 cm (so a tad shorter than full 6'1), which seems reasonable.
That would put Wawrinka at 181/2, Nadal at 182/3, djokovic 186, Murray at the 187,5 cms he declared.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jul/17
Rob, maybe he did get measured at 186cm earlier in the day?
Editor Rob: 11am maybe close to 186 standing at his tallest.

seen him a lot of times over the years at the American hard court tournaments I am 187cm in shoes and I have walked right next to him a lot of times, he is no taller than me, I bet height is 184cm I think to be more precise Editor rob you could list as 6'0.5

Del Po is closer to 6 foot 7 he looks taller by 2 inches than Ranoic. Djokovic 6-2 inch taller than Federer. Murray bigger like 6-2 1/2 or 6-2 3/4. edges out 6-2s.

Rob,can you update the description?he now won 19 Grand Slam titles.Awesome that at 35 he's again the great Federer we knew the last decade.I think almost all people who spoke of tennis in front of me said he was finished,many even thought that Nadal was finished,heyhey it seems that 2017 brings many surprises
Editor Rob: yes, I updated it and he managed to show that at 35, you can still be a Champion in Tennis.
Chris said on 17/Jul/17
never can tell the difference between djokovic and Murray in terms of height anymore back in 2011/2012 it looked like decent half an inch now looks like nothing at all. I guess maybe just camera angles accounting for small differences. I've met Murray and he is defo not over 6"2 could seem less with a girl I know who is 5"5. Also in Davis cup photos from 2015 qf tsonga and Murray look the exact same height they are probably the best photos of them together.
Chris said on 17/Jul/17
@james 5"11.75 is the lowest I think you could argue I really don't see a difference is those pics but at the 2014 Aussie open I could. He is a burly guy for a tennis player so that can make him look shorter. Though 182 for wawrinka doesn't look to good for Federer at 6"1 as fed is just 0.75" taller. Both could be a fraction shy of their claim at night.
anon said on 16/Jul/17
Murray is taller than Both Tsonga and Djokovic so If they are both 6'1.75, Murray aint under 6'2 I doubt, Federer is probably 185cm around 6'1 he could dip just under but anyone at 6'0.75 at their very worst would just claim 6'1 anyway.
James said on 16/Jul/17
@Chris Wawrinka is 5' 11.5" or 5' 11.75". Definetely a bit under 6 foot.

Click Here
Chris said on 16/Jul/17
I think a fraction under 6"1. He is about 5 inches under cillic who I agree is a little under 6"6 as he looks a tad shorter than legit 6"6 querrey. Federer is most likely 6"0.5-6".075.
I think
Wawrinka -6"0
Federer- 6"0.75
Murray-6"2 no more possibly a tiny fraction under
Tsonga-6".175/6"2 looked smaller than expected next to querrey
Del potro- 6"6.25
Gasquet- 6"0
can look 6"6 sometimes by the likes of Murray.

He looks 6-1. Murray still looks more than just a inch taller. Can look a inch and a half.
anon said on 5/Jul/17
He has always been down as 6ft1, But his official Website gives his height as 186cm.

Could it be a case Rob that he might have measured 185.5cm and they can round to 185 or 186cm no Idea either way I think he does look 185 range
Editor Rob: generally I think 185 suits him, but maybe the 186 is what he really would claim if asked.
Visitor said on 28/Jun/17
Can you do Alex Zverev, Rob? He's listed at 6'6" but based on the picture during the trophy presentation he looked closer to 6'7"

Very lucky guy considering both of his parents are so short. Would tennis be the reason for his tall stature?
Nik said on 18/May/17
6'1" seems a bit tall for him, but he's still just taller than most 6'0 players like rising talent Thiem and 6'0 Sampras so 6'0.5 seems the best estimate

Hey Rob, how tall would you say he looks next to bill gates in their most recent pictures?

Do you think Bill might have lost some height over the years?
Editor Rob: he could be 4 inches taller...bill probably has lost a little height.
david said on 25/Apr/17
Federer was taller than Pouille who claims 6-1. my guess is poullie is a bit under. i would no be shocked if Roger was on the upper end of 6-1. 6.1-25 or 6-1.5
Mark(5'9.25 said on 15/Apr/17
probably a solid 6'1". If he fell under it, that would be due to a tennis match.

I always pictured Federer as a textbook example of a 6'1" person.
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 14/Apr/17
He may be a weak 6ft1 (184.8), but maybe not a full one (185.4)
Canson said on 10/Apr/17
Could be strong 6'0" (184cm) up to just about 6'1" (185cm). Michael Jordan like Christian said edges him out and Jordan by enough people who have described him when he played 6'4/6'5 or 6'4 and change likely means he's 6'4 1/2-6'4 5/8 at his lowest like he was when drafted
Ollie said on 10/Apr/17
Federer 185-185.5cm to me

Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 9/Apr/17
He's over 4 inches shorter next to 194-195 Michael Jordan, so he's not quite 185.
Reece said on 3/Apr/17
i struggle to think Federer is 6-0. i think that 6-1 is accurate. he may have looked shorter because he just played a tennis match because after exersise you are shorter or maybe his posture. Federer under 6-1 i doubt.
brundle said on 2/Apr/17
I saw Roger Federer up close recently in Indian Wells Anyhow, I met him in person, shook his hand Im 185-186cm, he was definitely slightly shorter than me. Probably closer to 6ft even.

Not identical shoes in the final. Same brand, color, etc, but Nadal always wears a thicker sole on court. I would say Federer usually looks about 1 inch taller than Nadal off court.

I am pretty sure Nadal wears shoe inserts, I remember from a few years ago he stated this. That's probably why he looked a bit taller than Federer.

His own website has his height down as 6'1 but 186cm so 6'1.25.

I could see Federer measuring 185.5cm so he could be down as 185 or 186cm either way he is pretty much a 6'1 guy for me
Chris297 said on 15/Nov/16
No more than 6"1. Well proportioned and has big hair so can appear taller. Djokovic is definitely about an inch taller.

Federer doesn't seem like a man who would drop a fraction under 6'1" regularly when standing at his tallest.
Editor Rob: Close to 6ft 1 but not over it really.
Mark said on 19/Sep/16
And really, Federer's build strikes me as a Honest 6'1". He doesn't pretend to be in the 6'1" range while at worst a fraction under and at max slightly over 6'1".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Sep/16
Rob, do you think Federer falls into the "weak" or "strong" side of 6ft1?
Editor Rob: at times I'd have said a weak, other times an honest 6ft 1, I think roughly 6ft 1 flat is probably as close to the truth as you'll get.
Mark said on 8/Sep/16
Agreed with Johno. Federer always strikes me as being at least a solid 6'1" or in the stronger side of it.
Johno said on 5/Sep/16
6'1 is a good listing for Federer.
Mark said on 2/Sep/16
I'm laughing at Ali and simons comment about Federer being only 6'0" barefoot. If Federer was that short, he wouldn't that much taller than Nadal. Then again, Nadal doesn't have the best posture. Still, Federer stands well with Michael Jordan and is noticeability taller than Bradley Cooper.
Mark said on 28/Aug/16
Rob, could Federer edge out Costner in person or at least give a taller impression?
Editor Rob: he might...having watched a couple of Costner 80's films recently I think about 6ft 1 is ok, but I wouldn't really put him over the mark.

Rob,his parents are very short compared to him,do you think that him playing since young age made him so tall compared to them ?
Editor Rob: certainly doing a sport like that will help maximise growth, maybe in some cases it can even push the body beyond a normal range it is expected to reach genetically.

So are Andy Murray's parents. It's quite common to have average parents and a tall son. There's a lot more variation in genetics than you think and there are other factors which can also account for height.

A perfect example of 6'1. No more, no less. One of the greatest tennis players of all time, and even though I'm a Nadal guy... nothing but respect and admiration for Darth Fed! (He always looked awesome in all black!) As for Arch, yes there does seem to be a lot of 6'4 + guys on tour. Interesting, yet if you look at the most successful tennis players in history, (for males) it has been between the 5'10-6'2 mark. Just this past decade, your top four players are all between 6'0.5-6'2. Who knows, like everything these days, everyone is getting taller, except for me of course! *sigh*

Arch Stanton on Roger Federer
@Rob Have you noticed that tennis seems to have an unusual number of 6 ft 5-6 players? I've lost count recently how many players I've seen at 6 ft 6, Del Portro, Cilic, Querrey, Vesely, Zverev. All of them do look it when they do close up body shots on the court. The average for a male tennis player now has to be 6 ft 1-2. Almost every other game I seem to watch now there's a 6'5 or 6'6 player in it. Seems a big height to be an advantage in terms of groundstroke player/around the court, though obviously an advantage on serve.
Editor Rob: is it an advantage to be 6ft 5-7? I don't know, 6ft 1-2 might be a perfect height range if Federer and Djokovic are anything to go by.

You'd think too big wouldn't you for court mobility, but I don't think it's a coincidence that a lot of these 6'6 players are making it into the top ranking, perhaps the height with serve and more difficult to pass? You rarely ever see a male player under 6 ft nowadays!
MD said on 5/Jul/16
Height seems to be an advantage as in you'd rather be 6'5" than 5'5", these days (or any time in tennis, really). It seems, though, that if you're talking the elite of the elite (Top 5 or 10 in the world) that there certainly seems to be a point where it becomes a disadvantage compared to average-tall guys (6'0"-6'2").

Goatlips said on 4/Jul/15
Fred (below) is a total hypocrite and idiot - firstly, saying, "Federer is 6ft 1in!!!!", then saying this site is guess work "at best!!!1." Well, no, height not only changes with age, but also throughout a single day.
The ATP possibly measured him for their 185cm stat (6ft and 2cm) - but it doesn't say when he was measured. In the morning before your spine is compressed you'll be taller.
Also, he's 33 now, and no one seems to realised that from the age of 30 (on average) your body starts to die and your height decreases. On average you lose about 1mm in height per year after 30 and that rate doubles to 2mm per year from the age of 70. A professional tennis player is likely to shrink even faster than a sedentary person, due to increased wear on the virtibrae and discs. If the original ATP stat was true, and taken before he was 30, Federer is probably closer to 6ft now than 6ft 1in.
I personally have done hard weight training and ran over 1000 miles from the age of 40 to 43 and my spine is degenerating badly! I've lost 2cm (almost double the normal rate) and gone from 180cm to 178cm.

@Rob- Mattew
Although i dont know as much as rob obviously, i tbh personally think liams 5ft9-9.5, ive studied one directions heights for a year or two and no way is liam 5ft10, surely not Rob ?
A.) He looks very simular to harry when both in flat shoes, and when harry has thicker footwear Harry duly looks taller.
B.) His posture is good and he generally has decent footwear. ( harrys is bad )
C.) At times he can look identical to zayn, and in many photos even a 1 inch difference is hard to spot between them.
D.) 90% percent of the time he looks an inch taller than weak 5ft8 range at best louis.
E.) Look at him next to pharal williams, david beckham, nick grimshaw, olly murs, he's not over 5ft9 range.
F.) Look at him next to niall horan, for example, both wearing flat footwear on the day of meeting beckham, no more than about 1.5 inches between them.
G.) Rob, Liam was the same height at 16-17 roughly as now, even at 14-15 on his first appearance on x factor he was same size as 5ft7-8 O'leary.
Finally.... look at the REAL MADRID photos,.. if liams over 5ft9.5 i will give up guessing height for life, i respect your opinion rob and trust you, but this guys not over 5ft9-9.5 is he ?
mattew said on 11/Nov/14
Hi Rob, What are your thoughts on one Direction's Liam Payne?, I am not sure if he claims an height, he has a picture today with Roger Federer at the atp tour finals, Looks a good 3 Inches shorter than Federer who looks a legit 6ft1 guy for sure 185-186cm range I think.

Maybe 5ft 10 for Liam Payne is my guess having seen that picture
[Editor Rob: Payne claimed a few years back that he wasn't 5ft 10 but closer to 6ft and then said '5'11", so that's his claim.
I think Payne probably could edge styles out a little, he looked as though he might have gained a little bit of height around age 18]

But really you'll never be completely accurate unless you get a special laser measurement of their heights. All of what is said on this site is based on speculation, comparing images, and maybe at best meeting up with these celebs and then guestimating their height. I agree you are probably within a few mm of their actual heights but they are still just estimations at best.
Josh said on 26/Sep/14
No hair split just want top 4 guys accurate...Rob has done right by making Murray 188 and Djoko me it is clear Fed is 185 max as as listed early in career...

Murray 188
Djoko 187
Federer 185
Nadal 184

Please Consider Rob I promise you this is accurate have seen all of them many in line with dropping all the other guys a cm as you did.
[Editor Rob: yeah, the 1/4 inch for Rog maybe isn't needed, the 6ft 1 on it's own is probably been a better mark to list him.]
Fred said on 12/Sep/14
you guys are really splitting hairs. Federer is 6 foot 1, plus or minus a few mm!

Federer looks at least an inch shorter to me and remember Murray is actually a hair under 6'2 according to him

There is hardly an inch between Murray and Federer. Murray at 6'2 makes sense. Federer at a strong 6'1 is fine.
Josh said on 6/Sep/14
Rob, I've been at the Open all week and Fed is def more 185...a weak 6'1...please consider is what he was listed at for years like Novak at 187 and is a lot more in line with Andy Murray who we now know is a weak 6'2, as there is clearly and obviously at least an inch between them.
lee said on 15/Aug/14
I noticed his website has his height listed as 186cm not the usual 6'1- 185cm so I am assuming thats a more official thing and perhaps he measured 186cm The ATP do not list to 1/2 inches or anything like 6'1- 185cm- 6'2- 188cm they wont put 186 or 189 down for example.

He always looks a solidly tall man, Legit 6'1 seems right- At worst he might be between 185 and 186cm somewhere
ray said on 12/Aug/14
Federer looks 6'1/ 6'1.25 legit, He is not under 6'1, There is no chance I could see him being under 185cm legit, Novak is around 6'2 looked Inch taller than Roger when they play but Federer is for sure at least 1/2 inch on Rafa Nadal and I am not convinced Nadal is just a flat 6'0 guy
kevin said on 4/Aug/14
I am just giving my opinion I still think Murray could measure 6'2.25- 6'2.5 he recently said he is 6'3 in shoes so he is at least a legit 6'2 guys I am just going of how he looks to others like Djokovic, Federer etc He looks at least 1/2 inch taller than Djokovic who Rob has at 6'1.75 and at least an Inch and a bit on Federer who is listed on here at 6'1.25.

It might just be Andy is 6'2.25ish or something, It's tough to say but he always looks taller than 6'2 guys like Roddick, Haas, Tsonga fror example and these guys are not under 187cm
Josh said on 4/Aug/14
kevin if Murray is 6'2.5 why did he himself say he is 187.5cm, a very detailed figure?
kevin said on 2/Aug/14
For me the listings are accurate on here expect Andy Murray who I still would give 6'2.5 189cm.

Josh said on 28/Jul/14
Rob, I would bump him down to a flat 6'1 and 185 cm, he was listed at that for a long time then all of a sudden 186, similar to Novak being 187 for a long time, then all of a sudden 188. This would very much be in line with Andy Murray at 6'2 as he is clearly a full inch if not more taller than Federer.

Nadal at 184 cm is right, but he could possibly go down to 6'0.25, although that is a minute squabble.

To me is is clear Murray is almost 6'2, Djokovic a hair less...Federer 6'1 and Nadal more than a hair less, but not a full inch so.

So Rob, I lobby you to be consistent with Murray coming down, as well as Novak a cm, and knock Fed down a cm to his long time listed height :)
Josh said on 7/Jul/14
He probably weighs less than his listed weight (a lot of player do during the season), but not by that much.He could be around 180 in matches, same for Nadal and Murray. Djokovic probably is down around 170 at the end of a tourney.

Federer is underdeveloped in terms of muscle size, but he has a large frame and is very his "stout" father. Someone like Nadal has a medium frame that is bulked up, whereas Roger has a large frame that is underdeveloped, but they end up weighing around the same.

When estimating other players heights you have to really use the only reference we have on the subject which is Andy Murray's height of 187.5 ( 6'1.8" ? ) - which he gave himself and because it it is somewhat lower than his ATP listed height you have to concede he is telling the truth due to its accuracy. With this in mind Roger looks around his ATP listed height to me - 185 ( 6'0.75" ) or possibly a bit lower like 6'0.5" but it is difficult to tell from photos.

Nah, he is a full inch taller than Fed, but it's okay if you think he's not. Seahawkfan why Murray would claim 187.5cm if he is 6'2.5"? I think 6'2" or 6'2.25" is the max for Andy after his claim, is possible he got measured after a match so that is his very lowest.

No way its not a full inch. I've seen them obviously. You just choose a few of your favorites with Murray standing closer to camera
Balrog said on 28/Mar/14
Federer is at least a full inch shorter than Murray. There are several pics to compare

Rob, now you should bring down Federer to a 6'1" listing and Nadal to 6'0.25"
nah i think Federer is okay at 6'1.25 maybe at night he is 6'1.1 area but i think this is a good listing. look at him next to Murray who 6'2 and Will Ferrell (6'2.5ish) not much difference at all.@Fred says on 26/Mar/14

@Voiceless Dental Fricative says on 22/Mar/14
Now that Andy Murray claims to be 6'1.8 the chances of Federer being a full 6'1 look incredibly less likey.

no Murray is 6'2 the difference is less than an inch so its more likely Federer is 6'1.25 than Murray 6'2.25

Stood next to Federer at Indian wells again this year, he's no less than a full 6'1, or as you said 6'1.25
MD said on 25/Mar/14
lol! Yeah, okay.
avi said on 23/Mar/14
Andy is probably a strong 6'2 leading to 6'2.25-.3 . Ferderer is over 6'1. probably 6'1.25 like Rob has. there does not seem to be a true 1 inch difference between Murray and him but if they both measured i think it is possible as Federer can have a tad better posture than Murray.

Federer is 185, as he was listed for years and years.

Andy is clearly and obviously taller than Novak, come on man.
MD said on 23/Jan/14
Huh? Andy looks taller than Novak in EVERY picture. Your sight must be going.
Vandal said on 22/Jan/14
Murray is 187 cm , Federer 185 and Novak is 188 , try to find 1 picture where Murray looks taller than novak
MD said on 12/Jan/14
Yeah, as everyone has been saying on every other major tennis page, Rob, if you're going to take as much off from Murray as you have, then that sets into motion changes to these pages.

Rob, do you still believe in 186cm for Feds?
[Editor Rob: well he could be 6ft 1 on the nose]

Strong 6'1 probably 186.5cm. Looks close to Murray who is a strong 6'2

Federer is pretty tall he must be over 6'1
Pleb said on 9/Jan/14
Roddick is often edged out by Murray, so maybe 187cm for Roddick.

Nice bias selection of pic BTW, can't even see how they're standing, bravo, bravo!

How's this one: Click Here

All at the back, Murray 187.5cm, Roddick 187cm, Federer 184cm.

Federer is around 183-184cm. Looks it next to 187.5cm Murray, looks it next to 184cm Cameron, looks it next to 186cm Kaka...
james said on 29/Dec/13
Rob I met federer at wimbledon and I think he might even be 6ft 2 by the way rob did you hear about that press conference that vika azarenka had at a tournmanent in 2012 when you used 105 swear words
[Editor Rob: I'd be surprised if he was that tall, never read about azarenka swear session]
niall said on 29/Dec/13
He is the same height as sampras who is 6ft 1 they played an exbition match once. He played one with victoria azarenka at january just before austrlian open and he said to her why did you use all those swear words in that press conference back in april last year the one with all the 105 cuss words in and she repield I not sure but I meant it federer is a true pro manners impecible she is a vugar classless champion
Tidal Cruiser said on 2/Dec/13
Pjk, the players height are measured in the morning. Because literally everyone that is enlisted in the ATP computer are measured that way, the tennis shoes is a immediate +1 inch. So they are enlisted like that. Believe it or not, players like Djokovic who is enlisted 6'2 is the same height as some 6'0 players.
pjk said on 1/Dec/13
Federer is always listed as 185cm on bbc sport coverage and Nadal always looks 2cm shorter to me. If Federer is this height, which i believe he is then Nadal is around the 6 ft mark or 182.8cm. David Cameron looks at least an inch taller than Nadal from that line up. I love watching Nadal but from the photo evidence i don't believe he is over 6ft. Also, i am assuming tennis players heights are measured in the morning ( which would be their optimal height ), but i don't know this for certain.

All the best to you fellow affected individuals. We fight tooth and nail nail over half a centimetre - what is wrong with us ? He he
Pleb said on 12/Nov/13
You could had easily searched "Kaka Federer" and come across this clip Click Here , granted the camera position favors Kaka but you can easily gage that Federer is shorter, would had also answered your footwear query.

I thought Kaka must be nearer to 6'2 but he is clearly shorter than a 6'2 Thierry Henry. Click Here This also calls into question Zidane being 6'1, more like a flat 6'-6'05. Unless Henry is 6'3 which I seriously doubt.

Federer also looks dead even with a 184cm David Cameron, just hit up search images. Nadal being under 6ft is no joke. Clearly shorter than a 184cm David Cameron.

Guess Tennis players can get away with inflating there height with those thick tennis shoes.
Pleb said on 9/Nov/13
Shorter than a 186cm Kaka, I peg the Fed at 184cm. That makes Nadal 181-182cm.

Do you guys think Ferrer is a legit 5'9?

Nadal is strange he can look at 6'0 at times. Murray is more 6'2.5 as Rob has it.
avi said on 5/Sep/13
@late 187cm

I think Rob has it about right Murray isn't 6'3 6'2.5 is believable but he can look 6'3. Federer can look close to 6'2 solo but the evidence points to Federer being 6'1 and change and Murray being 6'2.5 if lucky. I believe there's an inch difference TOPS between them it can look like less in some pictures.
Radd said on 3/Sep/13
Nadal 185 cm , Federer 186 cm, Djokovic 187-188 cm , Murray 189 cm.
Late 187cm said on 1/Sep/13
@ Ok, but Federer could be more 185cm and Murray could even be 191cm, I see more than 1 inch in the 2nd photo. But I know you think it's more along the lines of 186.5cm and 188.5cm.

By the way, I think the 'fools' comment is totally uncalled for. It's all just speculation and idle opinion on this site. You can't be so sure about your opinions. Nobody can. It's insulting to call someone a fool when they don't share the same opinion as you.
Late 187cm said on 29/Aug/13
@ avi


I'm not going to push this, because I can see you feel very strongly about it. Arguing about a cm or 2 is pointless for me. Also, your comments vary too much. You've posted various comments stating anywhere between 1/2 inch to a full inch difference. Maybe this was just you making up your mind or coming to a conclusion. Either way I'm not arguing over a cm or 2.

But I will say this, if there's .75 inch, or 2cm, between two people the difference in height should be hard to notice. There would be times when the taller guy would drop 2cm and both guys would look similar or the same. Murray almost always looks clearly taller. Which for me would suggest over an inch, or maybe a 4cm difference.

Here's a few pics. No full lengths, unfortunately. Federer's hair is usually more voluminous by the way. Murray's is starting to thin.

I don't expect you to agree, or even want you to. I'm just expressing my opinion. That's all we can do. You, me, Rob or anyone else. No opinion is 'correct'. You need stadiometers and informed and competent operators to prove that.

@Late 187cm says on 25/Aug/13

absolutely not!! if you learn one thing from this site its NEVER just judge by eyeline. Federer's head is down too and Murray has a 1/4 minimum of hair there plus a spiked style. i think there its looking like a .75 inch difference there. but if you measure Andy h'ed be 1 inch taller than Federer. Murray is struggling with over 2 inches on Nadal there. just ask Rob. point is Roger looks taller than his claim and Murray looks under his claim. is Murray 6'2 flat? no im not saying that but he could be weak 6'2.5 (Rob has him at 6'2.5)
Late 187cm said on 25/Aug/13
@ avi

I see more than .75 of an inch between Federer and Murray there. If you copy the image to a paint editor programme and draw a horizontal line from Federer's eyes across to Murray it should end up around Murray's mouth. That suggests a lot more than .75 of an inch to me.

I think it's a very good picture. Full length, almost perfectly side by side, footwear appears similar, posture appears fairly uniform. Can't really ask for more.

Murray looking close to 6'3 there, if 187/188 Djokovic, 185/6 Federer and 184/5 Nadal are correct. Murray looks good for 190cm.
Lurk said on 11/Aug/13
Looks an inch taller than Nadal most of the time.

Djokovic may be a hair taller than Federer.
avi said on 11/Aug/13
@James says on 14/Jul/13
yep James Murrays may be off but Federer may have been measured at 6'1.25 or 6'1.4 or something weird so they rounded down. M
@late 187cm
not the best picture but decent. as you can see Del Potro struggles with 4.5 inches on Federer and no way in hell theres more than .75 inches between Federer and Murray. Nadal looks barely 6'0 there. Murrays hair is sticking up at least 1/4 inch maybe 1/2 he looks like my 6'2.25-6'2.5 firned except Murrayis waaaay skinnier. i look like Nadal next to him. calling Murray 6'2.5 is fair i think he could be less. no way hes 6'3 flat barefoot. that would make Federer 6'2.25! Soderling is a true 6'3.5
JB said on 10/Aug/13
James, I was at wimbledon also in'79 & I think you are right Borg was 5'11" & I think McCenroe was marginally taller maybe 5'11.5.Official Djokovic 6'2" always looks equal in height to Murray unless Murray slouches,so I think Murray's official height is maybe 1/2" overestimated.I would agree Federer is slightly above 6'1",slightly taller then sampras 6'1". Just to add Tim henman was listed at 6'1" but always looked marginally taller than Federer or Sampras & I've seen him stood besides Becker at wimbledon commentaries, not much difference so I would put him at 6'1.5 6'2" perhaps

James said on 14/Jul/13
AVI comments are spot on, The official tennis heights are usually very accurate, I used to think Bjorn Borg to be very small but stood by him at wimbledon in 1979, he was clearly 5'11", Federer Djokovic, Murray, Nadal all most definiteley their officially listed heights, except maybe Murray 6 2.5" but sureley we are not arguing about 0.5" here or there as your heights can vary from morning to evening by as much as 0.5"

@anon says on 12/Jul/13

Yes Murray seems over 6'2 flat but federer really does well next to him. Looking maybe 1/2 shorter in many pictures and NEVER looking more than 1 inch shorter than Murray. I'd say federer is over 6'1 maybe close to 6'1.5 no more though. Murray is a weak 6'2.5 or 6'2.5 exactly. Del potro can look 6'5.5 but is obviously 6'6. Djokovic is probably 6'2 flat. skinny built. Had 3 solid inches or so on 5'10.5 agassi.

Murray is more than 0.5 over Federer he looks at least an Inch taller are you blind, Djokovic is a bit taller than Roger and Murray is a bit taller than Djokovic so how does your comment make sense, Murray is more than 6'2 he looks nearer 6'3

Many pictures Murray seems only 1/2 taller than Roger. I admit there probably is about an inch in actuality but no more.even so Murray is close to 6'2 than 6'3. Next to 6'6ish Del potro he looks over 3 shorter. I'd say Murray is almost 6'2.5 roger close to 6'1.25 Djokovic 6'2 flat.
