Serena is a beautiful young woman,nobody needs to know her height or weight,she is one of the best woman tennis players on the planet so just laeve her alone.

I havent seen Serena in person so dont know abt her appearing small compared to on TV but would like to quote the Indian tennis player Sania Mirza when she played against Serena. Sania said " Standing across the net from Serena gave me an idea about how big she was up close". Now Sania Mirza at 5'8" & 160 lbs isnt a small girl and for her to say that about Serena really conveys a lot

When I saw Serena, second row seats, I was amazed how small she appeared in person compared to tv. Definitely more muscle than fat, solid but not fat at all.
Leung said on 19/Sep/11
Please post photos to support these 200 lbs claims. I am yet to see pictures of Serena looking anywhere near these outrageous claims.
NT said on 17/Sep/11
First of all she isn't fat, but she does remind me of a bloated Barry Sanders. My sister was a very athletic girl with no fat and at 5'7'' weighed about 165 and her frame was way less broad than Serena. Nothing wrong with her body but I guarantee she is near 200 lbs if not a little more

Serena Williams has the same build as the 6'4", 225 lb Stephanie Trafton Brown who is the Olympic Champion in Women's discus. Considering this and the fact that for every 4" height difference the ideal weight to be deducted or added is 19.8 lbs, we can come to a conclusion that Serena at 5'9" weighs abt 185 - 190 lbs

The US Open women;s final was a battle between 2 girls with the biggest biceps in women's tennis. Sam Stosur has biseps as big as Serena but Serena has much broader shoulders and where Serena scores is in her lower body where her legs are like tree trunks compared to Sam Stosur.
James said on 13/Sep/11
Yes muscle is a lot more denser that fat tissue that is clear. If Serena is 5'9" then conservatively she would weigh about 185 lbs. I would place her percentage of body fat to be around 20 percent and even then I would say this is low. If her body fat was around 10 percent then she would weigh about 165 lbs. And her breasts would be much smaller because breast tissue is primarily fatty deposits. This is the curse of being a big boned or mesomorphic women. Those knees no doubt take a real pounding.
Esera said on 13/Sep/11
Do any of you have any education in anatomy? When you have muscle you will appear bigger! Just like professional women bodybuilders. Wt may be 130 pounds, however because of muscle one appears bigger. There are some really good free resources online to help u understand this concept. Education is power!
AJC said on 13/Sep/11
There is no way Serena is 200+ lbs as some of these crazy comments claim. I had to pull up some google images of her to make sure I wasn't off base. Her body is phenomenal and not an ounce of fat. Now you have those guys that want their women looking like a toothpick with a flat back, those jokers couldn't handle a body like Serena's and feel she is fat and in their mind since she is fat she has to be over 200lbs. But for those of us that prefer a voluptuous female, Serena is perfect. I've seen women at 200lbs and they look nothing like Serena. I would say she is no more than 165lbs.
anon said on 13/Sep/11
Serena has returned from her injury lay off bigger and bulkier than she has ever been. Guess she has spent hours in the weight room. For a girl who was already big, strong and muscular she seems to have gotten only more physically imposing. I estimate her to be in the 185-190 lb range in the US Open. Her match with Victoria Azarenka only highlighted how huge she is, Azarenka's with her 5'11", 150 lb frame looked like a stick insect next to Serena. As someone has commented guess Serena got Venus's share up front and also behind
Physical Lady said on 11/Sep/11
When I saw that Serena was listed as 150lbs I could not believe it. I am very athletic and have been all my life. At the age of 29 I too was very muscular with a six-pack (11 yrs of track will do that to you) and I did not take steriods. I am now not as muscular as I was 11 yrs ago and only have a 2-pack but I am 5'9", have no where near the 'melons' that she has and half the butt size (at least my husband thinks so:-) )...and I am 165lbs on a good day. 200lbs is my guess also for Serena.
Frenchy said on 11/Sep/11
I'm an ex-athlete (swimmer) and I'm guessing she weighs about 180. I'm 5'8" and in my prime and I worked out 3X a day in the summer, I weighed 150. She is a beast; definitely about 180.
Nicole said on 11/Sep/11
Wow! Did any of you actually studied biology?
Her body is one giant ball of muscles,of course she's going to weigh more. Plus muscle tissues are bigger than fat tissues. A woman with the same weight of Serena will look much skinnier because her body is full of fat,while Serena's body is loaded with muscles tissues!
Fit4Life37 said on 11/Sep/11
LMFAO @ AJC's ridiculous comment "not an ounce of fat"! Ummm, WTF do you think that jiggling mass around her gut and the majority of her huge thighs is? It certainly ain't muscle lol! Also laughing at the people saying she's nowhere close to 200 lbs. Watch the US Open final on right now. Stosur is listed at 5'8" 143, which i believe is accurate. You stand her next to Serena and even a blind man could tell Serena is at the very least close to 200, if not exceeding it. I'm so sick of people overly favoring Serena (and her sister for that matter). Yes, they were given a ton of natural talent, but to say either one has a great attitude or work ethic is obviosuly coming from someone who doenst follow the sport. Serena is not even close to being in top shape, and all she has to do in life is practice tennis and stay in shape and yet she can't even manage 1 of the 2. It's frankly pathetic!
Miro said on 11/Sep/11
Nobody doubts Serena's tennis ability, but there is no way she weighs 150 lbs full stop. Just watching her play Sam Stosur now, who is supposed to weigh only 3 kg less..I believe that a weight difference of 20kg between them would be a closer guess
Michael said on 11/Sep/11
Amazing athlete, coming back from major health problems. Knocked out at Wimbledon due to rust. Now in the US Open final having knocked out the number 1 seed. You can't do that carrying 200lbs. I think she comes in at 160-170lbs and a champions attitude to sport. You haters who just don't like the fact that she thrashes your favourites need to get over it.
Blister34 said on 10/Sep/11
I'm watching the US Open right now and I guarantee she's 200 lbs. My wife thinks more. That is one big woman for sure.
Q said on 9/Sep/11
I think those who comment on what they consider average or normal should get real. I am a woman who is 5'7 and I weigh 163 pounds and let me tell you when people find out how much I weigh they are shocked. Everyone carries weight differently and truly who cares she's an awesome player. As for the roids dig get real women can be strong and have a larger frame and not be on drugs.
mike said on 7/Sep/11
i consider myself a weight guessing expert and i estimate her weight at 212lbs....no question.....very thick, like a college fullback size
Donny said on 6/Sep/11
I'm quite astonished that she is 150lbs. If that is true then maybe there is another definition for pounds. I, myself am 6ft 1 and weigh 76 kg. I can be considered of medium build but Serena for a woman is big and she looks stocky and that can imply only one thing; she's heavy. She seems to have everything in abundance. Its in her gene pool. Just look at the youngest sister.
John said on 5/Sep/11
5'8 and 1/2, weighs 198
John said on 5/Sep/11
Serena now at the 2011 U.S. Open is 5'9, 201 pounds.
MD said on 5/Sep/11
Dr. M,

That was just a dumb, unsubtantiated claim you made. I'm not sure how to respond; I'm not sure it's even worth a response. There is no reason for an already big girl like Serena to want to get even more muscular than she already is with steroids in a sport like tennis. If anything, she'd want to cut down on some of that mass to make her more agile. The last thing she'd want to be on is something that makes her even bigger.
Zach said on 13/Aug/11
Look, i am 5'8" a muscular build on a medium to medium small frame AND I am 150lbs... There is NO WAY @ 5'9" Serena Williams is the same weight that I am, her legs are bigger than mine, and her rear-end would make two of mine, our upper bodies are similar in size, plus she has a large FRAME and she has large milk cans! Not to forget big feet and a large head... Just keeping things real, not a criticism or anything else.. Serena is a BIG girl. I promise you she is 180 lbs PLUS. If, I had to guess I'll bet for the most part of her career she is walking around at about one-ninety-two..
TNTinCA said on 6/Jul/09
"I think she is somewhere between 5'9 and 5'10. Probably
a strong 5'9. Her weight is probably 75-80 kg"

Is she really that heavy? I am a tad taller than her and I weigh about 83 kg. And I used to body build. :-)
JCDorz said on 5/Jul/09
Serena looked so much bigger than everyone who interviewed her. Her shoulders and legs are huge-I would bet she is 210 lbs. easily and 5'9.5" tall.
Anonymous said on 4/Jul/09
She is NOWHERE near 240....I am 5'9 and I can say that emphatically. Some folks have no idea of weight at all. I would put her between 155-165
Ali said on 4/Jul/09
Just watched the wimbledon final between
the sisters and I noticed Serena isn't much
shorter than her Venus.

So either Venus isn't 6'1 or Serena
is 5'10 or even 5-'11.

Maybe Venus is 183-184cm and Serena is 177
something like that.

Though Serena does seem to wear big shoes.
Lozzer said on 4/Jul/09
On her wimbledon info sheet the BBC showed in the final it said she was 5'9"!
Anonymous said on 3/Jul/09
At an imposing 5'10" Serena was the shortest amongst the 4 semi finalists at Wimbledon and the 2nd shortest amongst the 8 quarterfinalists, the shortest being the 5'8" Agneska Radwanska. Imagine being 5'10" and having to lookup at the other 3 semi finalists, now thats one tall line up of strong athletic girls.
Ali said on 30/Jun/09

Crista said on 24/Jun/09
Anonymous, you are overlooking the fact that Laila Ali, like any boxer, has thinner legs. So, even if she may look bigger than Serena in shoulders & arms(not by much, and Serena seems to have a bigger waist), Serena has much bigger legs(very muscular thighs and calves) which tip the scale a lot. I don't think Serena is below 176lbs, I tend to agree with Martin_timothy that she is around 190lbs.
Anonymous said on 22/Jun/09
If Laila Ali who looks defnitely bigger in the shoulders & arms than serena is only 176 lbs, how can Serena be 200 lbs
Martin_timothy said on 5/Jun/09
I am a bodybuilder as well, view my record at bodybuilding.com - IMHO Serena hovers between 15% an 19% body fat and 190-195 lbs. - as a personal trainer I can say I'm very accurate at a glance. And YES, as far as women in general go, she has plenty of definition from biceps to calves and could be competitive on stage in less than 6 weeks.
mon said on 4/Jun/09
ok, she is not over 200+ lbs. People know nothing about weight if your guessing that high! She is probably around 170-180.
greg said on 4/Jun/09
shes sexy as hell who cares
George said on 3/Jun/09
Serena is hot...but could not run the "miracle mile"...she just over powers the other girls. She would have to lose 30 pounds to get in good shape. She is much bigger then my 5'91/2" 170 pound wife who is a good athlete. Serena is without a doubt 200 pounds. I am comparing apples to apples...not guessing like some people saying...170...that is a joke!
Rocky said on 31/May/09
Josh, I don't believe you at all when you say that you are 5'11'' 190 lbs and look thin as rail.

I'm only 5'9'' and 130 lbs or so, but tell everyone that I'm 180 and oftentimes, I look the weight. Must be because most of my weight is on my shoulders, though I have a very small waist and legs.
fatboy said on 30/May/09
My family are all bodybuilders. My sister is 5'-10" and weighs 180. Her body fat is a little over 7%. Serena on the other hand cannot possibly have less than 15% body fat, and probably weighs at least 240. Take a close look at Serena's arms, chest area, butt, and legs. None of that is solid muscle mass or it would definitely have definition. Besides, Venus is 145 lbs, and she looks almost skinny....I like Serena as much as any fan, but she's at least 240

A deuce and a qtr. sounds about right

Serena - 210 lbs, u must be joking. There is no way she is that weight, cos if she were she would look fat which she isnt. Serena is just more muscular than most guys are but she wieghs only abt 180 lbs

Serena's drop-dead gorgeous. Who CARES about anything else???
Anonymous said on 20/Apr/09
She is somewhere betwn 5'9" & 5'10". Nobody disputes her height, its her ridiculously low body weight which is mentioned everywhere that is the point of discussion. There is now way such a strong, athletic 5'9" girl wiht those humongous shoulders, arms and legs can weigh only 143 lbs
Doink said on 16/Apr/09
She just said she was "five-nine" on the Today Show, the final half-hour segment.
Anonymous said on 8/Apr/09
Saw the final of the Miami tennis tournament between Victoria Azarenka & Serena Williams and the fact that Serena is just way bigger & stronger than the rest of the tennis playing girls was again proved. Azarenka is 5'11" & maybe abt 150lbs (listed only at 130lbs) and Serena was just so big compared to her. Azarenka's shoulders and legs looked so tiny compared to Serena's
Anonymous said on 6/Apr/09
All you people make Serena look like a monster. The poor girl cant help it if she is so tall & muscular. After all she is a professional athlete and has to work out and thats what makes her even more muscular. There is no doubt that she is stronger than most men who are not professional athletes but she is defnitely not over 200 lbs. On the other hand she is not the 143 lbs she is listed at on the WTA website too. That is quite ridiculous considering how huge she is compared to the other girls. Sania Mirza who is 5'8" & abt 155 lbs (tho she is listed at only 130lbs) once said after playing against Serrena that only when standing across the net from serena did she realise how huge Serena was. Now that coming from a 5'8", 155 lb girl says a lot. Serena should be 5'10" and abt 185 lbs, all of which is solid muscle
Josh said on 25/Mar/09
I am 5'11 190 and look skinny as a rail. She is 5'10 and looks like Urlacher's sister. Im sorry people, but trust me she is 200+ if she weighs an ounce. On the other hand its all muscle, not a dimple of cellulite on her body, impressive.
Anonymous said on 16/Feb/09
200 & 205 lbs for Serena Williams is a bit too much. C'mon guys give her a break, she is defnitely more muscular (soecially the back, shoulders and legs) than most men who are not athletes but she is only about 180-185 lbs cos she is just 5'10". maybe if she were 6'2" then 205 lbs wud have been right for her
JVA said on 28/Jan/09
LMAO, my wife is 5'5 a size 4 and she weights 130lbs. there is NO way in gods green earth that serena is under 200lbs. Rafa is listed at 188lbs and she looks like a linebacker compared to him...
blackeye70 said on 28/Jan/09
she looks about 187 in austrailian open, much better shape. at her biggest last year she tipped the scales at 205. she is tall and super athletic. her back and shoulder are as big as a fit man, not to mention her legs etc.
no matter the size, she is to be envied as a superb athlete.
RisingForce said on 22/Jan/09
I never said she was fat, I just said that she was obviously well over her weight listing and she still is as you mentioned.
Anonymous said on 21/Jan/09
Have u people seen Serena at the Australian Open, she looks so much more leaner and toned. The xtra fat has either disappeared or she has managed to convert it to muscle. i would think the latter cos she looks so much more muscular, specially those super broad shoulders and legs. Guess her weight tho will still be around the 180lb mark, but all muscle
RisingForce said on 23/Dec/08
She certainly weighs more than they list her. I'd say she's in the 170-180 range. I'd be shocked if she was over 180 but she could be close or right at that mark as you said.
Alex said on 10/Dec/08
Sometimes women with muscle will look less than they really are then sometimes not. I wouldn't have guessed Serena at 180lbs but could be that mark.
RisingForce said on 2/Dec/08
I agree, a strong 5'9" and over 170 pounds.
A_D said on 30/Nov/08
the only reason they dont change the weights cuz they dont want any one to say anything yea serena 5-9.2 but i seen 145 150 pounds for years witch I doubt now she look close to 175 pounds to me.
Josh said on 21/Nov/08
5 ft 9.25 in (176 cm) fits perfectly.
RisingForce said on 17/Nov/08
I think Serena is 175-180 pounds.
Leung said on 11/Nov/08
Serena may have been 150lb when she turned pro as a 14 year old and they haven
Anonymous said on 10/Nov/08
Cubs has hit the nail on the head. Cos if she is 5'10", 150lbs and serena is much bigger than her, serena has to be at the 170-180 mark. One more player whose weight is really understated is nadia Petrova. She is huge with very broad shoulders and is listed only at 150 lbs for her 5'10" frame. She too must be easily in the 180-185 lb mark
Cubs said on 5/Nov/08
There is no way Serena is anywhere near 150, or even 160 for that matter. It's laughable really. I am a female tennis player myself, and at 5'10" and just under 150 lbs, I am thin and muscular. Serena makes me look very thin. I'd think she's probably up around 170-180 at about 5'9". I think it's shameful that female tennis players' weights are always listed so much lower than they really are. It would be very difficult for a tall woman to have enough muscle mass at 135 lbs, and a woman like that would be the exception, not the average. There's nothing wrong with some women, like Serena, being a little heavier than others (since she can obviously move around the court quite well), but it would certainly be refreshing for the WTA and other organizations to list accurate heights and weights for female players in particular. I have also heard that the men's tour often exaggerates players' heights.
Alex said on 17/Oct/08
I agree Serena is much more than 135lbs but I dont think as much as 180-190lbs. I could see 160-170lbs.
Anonymous said on 12/Oct/08
Serena is 5'10" but guess appears a lot shorter cos she is so muscular and bulky with those huge shoulders. She mite not be taller than lots of tennis playing girls but she is defnitely the strongest. Those legs of hers are biggerthan most male players too
Blackray said on 28/Sep/08
I would agree with 5'9" flat also, as her sister Venus is 6"1/2' tall and looks sligtly more than three inches taller.

What's going on!Serena's height is not more than 5'8 as i have met her twice and she z approx of 150 kg not 175 kg.But her sis is of 5'11 and serena is quite muscular and i love her strong built body like that of chyna
Rocky said on 28/May/08
To clarify btw, the reason why people are making a big deal her weight is that despite being listed as such, it's clear that she is nowhere near 135 lbs. Just because a person can type the three numbers "1" "3" and "5" does not render Serena to be 135 lbs, just as me going to Michael Jordan's talk page and saying that he is a South Korean Albino who invented immortality does not make it true either.
frankie said on 27/May/08
serena is 5'10, she is sexy indeed, my favourite womens player, my favourite male tennis star is gilles simon, i love the american guys like blake and querrey and and mahut and zverev also , sorry to here about henin who has retired she was only like 5'5 but a graat player, she will be missed
Alex said on 27/May/08
Also about her weight, whatever she is she's in good shape. I prefer girls less built than that but shes still good looking.
Alex said on 27/May/08
I think she's 5'9ish and with her build at that height she is probably at least 160lbs.

Serena is 5'10' as listed, but her weight of 135lbs is a joke. A girl with shoulders, and legs like her should easily be abt 180 lbs.
talker said on 31/Mar/07
the TV commentator,in one of her recent matches said she's 5'9"..Here's a photo today in Miami with J.HeninHardenne,who is 5'5.5".Here she looks 3" taller than JHH,i would say 5'8.75" for Serena.

Met her last night, she's slightly taller then 5'9. Definitely not 5'10. This listing is accurate.

I can believe 5'10 for her maybe. She's 5'9 at the very least though. Could be rounding up a bit.

She appeared 5-10 to me.
sf said on 5/Oct/06
It was also 5'9" for years, and in one magazine she was listed at 5'8".

[Editor Rob: the 5ft 10 comes directly out of her mouth.

I'll repeat her quote from the year 2000 here:

"I'm like 5'10" now. In the Open, I was below 5'9""]
rick said on 5/Oct/06
Yes, on the WTA tour site is official height was 5'10" for 2 years. And it's always 5/10 on official site of Williams Sisters but I thinck Serena is around 176.
MD said on 2/Oct/06
I've never seen lower than 5'9", and she's often listed at 5'10". I do think she's taller than 5'9", though, but not quite 5'10". BTW, it looks like she was caught off guard. lol
sf said on 2/Oct/06
I've actually read 5'8" for Serena which I believe. Highest I ever read was 5'9".

She looks like Carl Weathers. And yeah, about 5'10".

5-10 sounds right actually.
