Serena Williams Height
5ft 9 (175.3 cm)
American professional tennis player. In 2000 she mentioned her height, saying at age 18 she grew: "I'm like 5'10" now. In the Open, I was below 5'9"
, although on Twitter she has subsequently said officially "[I'm] 5 9" "
, when asked exactly how tall
she really was.

Well,good points,Christian,it's not impossible but still rare.I'm not sure about the figures but I guess 95%are done by 18.Actually the difference between 17 and 18 is quite important in terms of height.It's common to see people gain height between 17 and 18 even though it's rarely more than 1" but after 18?We're speaking of a small number,as I said my job puts me in contact with youngsters so I know what I'm talking about.While some like yourself may gain a full inch,how many won't gain even a single mm?18 is certainly the most common age but obviously not a limit.Btw even speaking about myself I can't tell when I exactly stopped.One thing is sure after 17and half I didn't gain anything noticeable(without measuring).Have I stopped completely?maybe and maybe not.Is it possible that I gained a last fraction until 18 and half basically after which I know I didn't gain anything?always a chance.I think it would very interesting to take a sample of say 500 guys measure them at their lowest very precisely,aged exactly 18 and do the same aged exactly 19.I could be wrong but maybe the average will be like 2mm taller.

I think she is 1.75 m.

Growing an inch after 19 is definitely rare indeed, but not so much 17 or 18. I was about an inch shorter than I am now when I was 18.
Tunman said on 6/Jan/19
It's possible but still uncommon.Anyways I guess there are some people who may grow a small fraction between 18 and 19 without ever noticing it.However growing an inch or so is definitely rare.I remember a dude who gained around an inch after 18 and a dude who was near 5'8 3 months shy of 15 but never gained any further height.It's definitely exceptions.I once saw a chart at my doc's office which showed the height for youngsters until the age of 18 putting the boys at 172 and girls at 160 so quite plausible.Anyways,what's interesting is that at age 12 girls are allegedly taller than boys,probably because the main period of puberty is situated 11-15 for girls and 13-17 for boys,any growth after that will be very slow on average.Nevertheless you have some famous cases of people with late puberty,like Bieber who managed to grow till 21.A dude like Spainmen on this site recently claimed to have grown almost an inch from 18 to 23.It's just that the most commonly admitted age for the end of growth is 18.Maybe this could be of the reasons why the world puts Adulthood at that age.

I love her comment "I'm like 5'10" now. In the Open, I was below 5'9"!
Dream(5'9.5") said on 11/Oct/18
I wouldn't be surprised if we were identical in height.
Definitely a strong 5'9" like Freddie Highmore.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 4/Oct/18
For me, I stopped growing like a couple months or so after turning 19, which is slightly later than average, but not that extreme. But I know boys who stopped as early as 14, and as late as 21-22.
Tunman said on 24/Sep/18
Makes sense.15-16 years old is fair for a girl to be fully grown.Actually from what I noticed a decent number stop as early as 14-15 with 16 being a decisive age for growth,generally it's rare to see any growth after that but not impossible.On the opposite side it's uncommon to see one stopping at the age of 13 or earlier.
As for dudes,it's like 17-18 with many fully grown at 16-17.Rarely growing after 18 and rarely stopping before 15-16.Btw Rob claims he stopped growing at 14 but it's something quite rare.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 20/Sep/18
I wouldn't say as much as 99%, but you're right that most stop growing by then. This is just my personal experiences, but the majority of my female classmates at high school seemed to stop growing by the later portion of my sophomore year.
KH said on 17/Sep/18
The vast majority of people do not grow after 18 and by vast majority I mean like 99%. Most people stop growing at 16 or 17 thats when your growth plates grow. That doesn't mean Serena is lieing but it doesnt mean she isn't lieing either. Lets face it most people lie about there height. 5'9 seems about right to me. She can look even shorter then that at times because she has a very squat build.
Caitlynd Born-Dohm said on 9/Sep/18
Uh, women can most definitely grow at 18. You ever heard of a late bloomer?
Rising - 174 cm
said on 20/Aug/18
@Hogarth: As you mention, her knee is bent with Mike Tyson and her other leg isn't visible. It's likely the difference looks bigger because of that. The difference looks small in another photo: Click Here
The average guess of 5'9.25" is probably spot on and at the very least she's not under 5'9".
Nik said on 7/Jul/18
It's nice to see her honesty!
Spencer Dobkin said on 4/Jul/18
Hogarth said on 21/Feb/18
5'8 1/2. Iron Mike has about an inch and a half height on her. She has a lot of thick beautiful hair which helps add height. Iron mike is bald. One of her legs is slightly bent but her feet are close together. (Solid 5'10) Tyson's feet are farther apart and his posture looks bent a little back . 5'8 1/2 - 5'8 3/4 for Serena.
jonas said on 11/Jan/18
You dont need gigantisne to grow several inches after 18. If you have a kid with a tall dad and the kid is short and has a high voice at 16. Yet to see, but know a guy that hit puberty really late and had normal but really slow puberty, voice Change at 17 and he was 5'5 at 16 at 21 he was 5'10.5
said on 10/Jan/18
any idea how tall Sam Stosur is and what her weight is? most official stats claim 5ft9 or 175 cm but in pictures she looks significantly shorter than Serena. Her weight is usually claimed at 68 kg but compared to Serena that must be a bit too less, 72 kg looks more accurate for Sam.
Editor Rob: zero chance she's 5ft 9
Swtt said on 5/Jan/18
Nona I agree I think Sam Stosur would beat Serena at arm wrestling quite easily! How about a fairer match then, who would win in a arm wrestle out of Serena and Venus? Lol
Nona said on 23/Dec/17
@xyz: Serena is definitely much bigger than MO in the upper body but MO gives her a run in the lower body. There are very few women who have such a strong and powerful lower body as Serena's and MO is one of them. In fact she is much bigger than the other girls like Sloane & Madison in that pic. I would guess 190 lbs for Serena & 185 for MO
Nona said on 23/Dec/17
@swtt: guess Sam Stosur will edge Serena in an arm wrestling contest. In fact I'm sure there are also few other lower ranked girls in the WTA who have arms as big or bigger than Serena, I don't know their names though. Serena's real power is in those massive tree trunk like legs, she has absolutely huge thigh and calve muscles which put a lot of men to shame.
andre said on 16/Dec/17
lol again the "I grew at the age of 18, but this time coming from a woman. Saying as a woman that I grew at the age of 18 is like being a man and saying I grew at the age of 20.... A pure lie and IMPOSSIBLE other than if you suffer of gigantism. Men that say they grew at 19 or older and woman that claim they grew at 17 or older are 100% lying.
Maximum age a woman can grow is into 16's and a man 18's.... and even than I have to see hard proof of a man growing while they are into their 18 years old (like 18 and 3 months, 5 months, 6 months etc...) and women while being into 16's. From hundreds of persons that I saw growing over my life, I only suspect a male growing a bit, though I don't have hard evidence, while was 18 year old and I have seen and heard of no woman growing while 16.
When I say 18 and 16 I mean being 18 and 1 month to 18 and 11 months and 16 and 1 month and 16 and 11 months.
I also saw you rob saying many times "final spurt at 19 or 20". Rob, please, you should now better than anyone that there is no such thing for a person that doesn't suffer from a tumor or gigantism.

She looks 5'10.5 with mcenroe and Nadal tbh
said on 7/Dec/17
Serena looks taller than Michelle Obama who is at least 5'10 or may be a bit more than that. Both are in sports shoes in the first pic. Also Michelle Obama looks tiny in size compared to Serena in the 2nd pic. Serena should be around 5'10-5'10.5.
Swtt said on 26/Oct/17
Serena looks much taller than Sam Stosur, similar build but seems to have smaller arms. There's not many female tennis players with bigger arms than Serena! The question is who would win in an arm wrestle between Serena Williams & Sam Stosur?
Nona said on 23/Oct/17
John McEnroe looks so tiny compared to Serena in those pics. I'm not talking height but physique. I'm sure he has lost muscle mass with age but Serena looks like she can easily cradle carry J Mac there. Just look at the comparison of their legs, Serena easily weighs 25 lbs more only in the legs.
Rising - 174 cm
said on 10/Oct/17
I think Mike is 2 cm taller than Serena, not 1, but he looks to have the advantage in that pic standing straighter with his arm around Serena and if you look, Serena appears to be bending her knee while Mike is not: Click Here
So that could explain why the difference looks more than 2 cm.
said on 6/Oct/17
Oohhh! Question rob! Who do you think would maybe measure a mm taller, Tom Hardy or Serena Williams? It’s a toss up for me.
Editor Rob: both could be argued to be 9.25, I understand it...
said on 2/Oct/17
No upgrade for her? She is taller than tennis players that Rob list them at 5'9
He looks just only like 1 cm less than Mike Tyson.
I'm not sure only 1cm
maybe Tyson saying he measured himself 5ft 10, and Serena claiming 5ft 9 isn't so far-fetched.
Rising - 174 cm said on 30/Sep/17
She's clearly bending her knee in the photos I've seen with Tyson. She's a legit 5'9"-5'9.25". That's why the average guess is a solid 176 cm. No way is she 5'8".
Life with loopy said on 29/Sep/17
She's two inches shorter than legit 5'10 Mike Tyson. She's between 5'8 and 5'8 1/2 at most. She appears to look taller in other instances because of her amazing muscular physique.
No way she's 150lbs. I'm 5'9 and when I used to weigh 150, I looked like a walking stick figure. This woman is large and extremely fit. Her legs and butt alone appear to weigh 150 or more. She walks around 200 +lbs easy. Very strong and beautiful lady.
Rising - 174 cm said on 28/Sep/17
@Johnson: I'd say 5'9.25" seems likely. She probably just doesn't bother with the 1/4" as many don't. I believe some other Tennis players have thought she's 5'10"-5'11", but I think a solid 5'9" with Serena's presence probably accounts for that.
Johnson said on 26/Sep/17
@Rising I have been trying to convince Rob since a long time ago... I know Serena is taller than 5'9 flat
Rising - 174 cm
said on 24/Sep/17
Either Angelique Kerber is more 5'6.5" than 5'7" or Serena is taller than a flat 5'9": Click Here
She looks a bit taller than 5'9" listed Caroline Wozniacki as well: Click Here Click Here
No wonder McEnroe thought she was taller! Click Here Click Here Click Here
If McEnroe is still 5'11" -- let alone the 6' he claims to have magically grown to -- it makes sense he'd see Serena taller than 5'9", whether a strong 5'9" like I'm guessing Serena or the flat 5'9" she's listed here. Of course, most who are say, 5'9 1/4" won't include the 1/4" even if they're being honest, but will just round to the nearest number.
JJAK said on 18/Sep/17
Mmm I always liked watching her play tennis her build looks good to me.
I'm a big 5 8 and 190lb man dont see her weighing over 150 but women can be hard to guess.
Reminds me of a lovely lady I knew who was 5 9.. but that is a story for another time.
Im 171CM said on 31/Aug/17
68in flat looks about right for her...
Charlie Robbins said on 26/Aug/17
Actually Serene weighs 185 pounds, at 5 ft 9, the BMI for that is overweight
Johnson said on 31/Jul/17
Obvious she is closer to 5'10 than 5'9
Tyson said on 24/Jul/17
I guess about 182.5 lbs
said on 17/Jul/17
shes a legit 5 foot 9 . she weighs at least 150 pounds in my opinion .
Tennis associations don't even weigh or measure players. They pick up figures from coaches/athletes or make it up.
Serena is closer to 200 pounds than 150.
Chris said on 17/Jul/17
Looks about 4-5 inches shorter than Davenport who is listed as 6"2.5 and is nothing under it next to others. Serena is 5"9.5 at least looks 2.5 inches or at most three inches shorter than sister they even have said this in interviews.
Pierric said on 8/Jul/17
Halep is a round 166.

Also, she's really a beast in Tennis.

@Rett, Garbine Muguruza is the solid 182 cms she is listed at. She is also very well built at 175 lbs
david said on 8/May/17
@Johnson. she is female dont be like those people who call her male. follower
Mark(5'9.25 said on 15/Apr/17
Rob, I think Serena could be a bit above 5'9" flat just like me or she could edge me out in person.
Rett said on 12/Apr/17
How tall do you think Garbine Muguruza is compared to Serena? Is the 5'11.75 (1.82m) she claims possible?
Mark(5'9.25 said on 29/Mar/17
serena could edge me out in person. I'd say 177 cm would be more suitable.
Sandy Cowell said on 17/Mar/17
@ Johnson - 👍 I don't even watch tennis! I saw her with Ellen and thought "what a tall lady!"
Johnson said on 16/Mar/17
@Sandy Cowell I agree, I've been watching pics of Serena for a while. He is over flat 5'9 for sure
Sandy Cowell said on 16/Mar/17
I am watching Serena on an Ellen show repeat from last November - complete with Christmas decorations!
She looks very tall! I'd say 5ft9 and a half, comparing her to one of my favourite measuring sticks, and that is Ellen de Generes herself!
Dom said on 10/Mar/17
Serena is a little bit over 5'10' and always looks this.

I hope one day Rob realizes Serena is taller than Bouchard

Serena Williams looking small next to Lindsay Davenport!
Realist said on 16/Feb/17
She's my height of 176.5cms and weight 185 lbs but she's all muscle
Johnson said on 16/Feb/17
@Johan she is taller than Bouchard. Compare Serena with the other female players, Azarenka, Wozniacki, Ivanovic. She is close to 177 cm... 5'9.5 exactly
Johan said on 16/Feb/17
Williams is 5'9" jeez she is being honest, her older sister is a 6 footer not 6'1".
That girl Coco looks 5'10.5" max from those pics Pierric, unless Davenport is actually 6'3" range. She is a good 3 in taller and even has bent legs lol.
Lmeister said on 16/Feb/17
Serena is 5ft9 and 180-185lbs. There is no way she'd be 200-210 lbs. She is a muscular woman, but she isn't monster sized. 5ft9 and 200-210 lbs is massive, if you have her muscle definition.
Nona said on 15/Feb/17
@swtt, coco is taller than Serena by at least 3" but Serena outweighs coco by about 10 lbs and is also much more muscular than coco. Her arms and legs especially are huge compared to coco even though they both have very broad shoulders.
Swtt said on 15/Feb/17
Coco is taller and bigger built than Serena! I bet she would beat Serena in an arm wrestle lol
said on 30/Jan/17
Nona, Coco Vandeweghe is absolutly NOT 6' 1"
With 6'3" Horia Tecau :
With Serena Williams :
With 189 cms Lindsay Davenport (I 've never seen Davenport with mega heels lol) :
And with Kim Clijsters. It's true Kim had about an advantage of 3-4 cms with her heels this day. (I cannot found again the pic where we can see it but I'd sent it to Rob by mail, maybe he kept it, but I remember rob gave to me an estimation of 181 for Coco) In the picture, Clijsters who's 173 barefoot, was about 179 in heels. Coco looks for me 183 in sneakers so 180-181 berfoot is possible. Near serena Williams I'd put her at 179-180.
Coco Vandeweghe is around 180 (5'11") for me...
Nona said on 30/Jan/17
Serena - 5'10" & 190 lbs
Venus - 6'1" & 170 lbs
Coco Vandeweghe - 6'1" & 180 lbs
Mirjana Lucic Baroni - 5'11" & 170 lbs
These were the 4 semi finalists at the Australian Open. One of the heaviest line ups in any Grand Slam semi final in recent times
Pierric said on 28/Jan/17
My brother, a nutritionist doctor and coach estimates her weight at 190-200 lbs range and about 170 for Venus.
James said on 26/Jan/17
Wow 210 pounds for a 5'9 female is ridiculous, its amazing she can even run with that weight. Elite genetics and athleticism of course.
said on 25/Jan/17
google says 155 lbs... she looks closer to 200
Editor Rob: Serena once claimed something ridiculous like 140-150 pounds.
She could look like a 210 pound women at times.
I mean Jenny today is exactly 150 pounds and a good 1.25 inches smaller than Serena...looks like a twig compared to Serena.

@Rob You should check the pictures of Serena Williams and Michelle Obama. They are very similar in height. Perhaps Serena 176.5 cm Michelle Obama 179 cm
Pierric said on 11/Dec/16
176 for me
Chris297 said on 15/Nov/16
Same height as fognini who is 5"10. You should add muguruzza since she is a French open champion
SAK said on 6/Oct/16
Definitely no lower than 5'9.
Just said on 25/Sep/16
At WTA Serena's use to be listed at 174 cm. I see they have changed it now...

Johno said on 15/Sep/16
5'9 up latw morning but probably more a top 5'8-ranger.
Chris789 said on 31/Aug/16
I wouldn't be surprised if she was 5"10 she looks it next to kerber Bouchard etc. she is listed 5"10 most places including Rio apart from the wta website. There was once a 179/180 listing in the early 2000s. To me she looks only 3 ins tops smaller than Venus. Serena has a habit of doing funny leg tilts in photos which make her look smaller.
jon said on 18/Aug/16
yh I could see her maybe around 176cm but no more, Likely a solid 5'9 maybe 5'9- 5'9.25 I dont see her as high as 5'10, Yh she is the greatest women player, very powerful women
Aza said on 15/Aug/16
'Thanks for the mammaries......!' Oh yeah....good listing.

Serena Williams once again looking fairly average in build next to singer Jennifer Hudson. Another celeb who proves Serena's arms aren't as big as everyone makes out lol
heightchecker34 said on 31/Jul/16
Serena Williams is 5'9-5'9.25 range player. The greatest female tennis player of all time and a powerhouse as well! She measures well against other 5'9 players such as Eugenie Bouchard, Caroline Wozniacki, and Madison Keys. She does have muscular shoulders and powerful thighs. A definite beast and future Hall of Famer!
Swtt said on 22/Jul/16
Lindsay Davenport actually looks a lot taller and broader than Serena!
said on 18/Jul/16
5'9.25 (176) is possible but she definitely aint 5'10-11, no idea what Lindsay was thinking when she said 5 ft 11!
Editor Rob: maybe from her perspective she really thought Serena looked nearer 5ft 11 up close, it could be just she has a presence that fooled Davenport.
said on 18/Jul/16
She does look a bit above a flat 5'9 with Nadal here Click Here
Something like 6'2.25 (189) for Lindsay might be about right.
said on 18/Jul/16
Rob, yeah she doesn't look over 5'9 range with some people but it's curious that Lindsay thought she was neared 5 ft 11, here they are together Click Here
She claims 6'2.5 I think and often looks it. Serena can look neared 5'10 there but the angle not good. Perhaps she just has what I call Borgnine syndome, 5'9 range but can look taller at times!
said on 17/Jul/16
Rob, what are the chances of taller? I was watching the Wimbledon final and John McEnroe said something like "what is she really?" (in height) like he thought her listing was understated. And then Lindsey Davenport said she thought she was nearer 5 ft 11!! McEnroe thought she was 5'10.5. Seems funny that they'd think she was taller as obviously they've both stood next to her and Lindsey would have been a lot taller if she was just 5'9!
Editor Rob: you could say she falls into a strong 5ft 9 range, but if Andy Murray is the 187.5cm he claimed, I can't see serena more than 5ft 9...

Use some common sense people. How the hell would a 5'9'' athletic woman be 200 lbs?

This is another example of Serena next to Bevy Smith looking pretty average height and not as big build as everyone makes out.
nona said on 28/Jun/16
Watching Serena play her Wimbledon 1st round match against a Swiss girl called Amra Sadikovic who is listed at 6'1" & 167 lbs. Serena is twice as big as this girl from head to toe but is listed at 150 lbs. Just does no tmake sense.

She has to be at least 200 lbs she is so big weighty strong and overpowering

Nona said on 28/May/16
@v nice comparison pics of Serena & Kerber. No doubt that Kerber is one of the stronger girls on tour but the pics with Serena make her look tiny. Especially the one where they have turned around. That pic shows the difference in their sizes, Serena is broader from head to toe. My guess is Kerber is 5'7" & 160 lbs whereas Serena is 5'9" & 190 lbs
Swtt said on 20/May/16
Yes Taylor Townsend looks the broadest out of all of them! Funny seeing someone that actually makes Serena look petite and normal build!
nona said on 12/May/16
Jeez, all those girls are so tall and huge and Taylor Townsend at 5'7" is the shortest amongst them. Her shoulders are humongous and even the mighty Serena looks tiny hext to Taylor. I'm taking a guess on the height sand weights of the girls in the pic as below
Taylor Townsend - 5'7", 190 lbs
Serena Williams - 5'9", 185 lbs
Venus Williams - 6'2", 180 lbs
Coco vandeweghe - 6'1", 175 lbs
Mary Joe Fernandez - 5'10", 160 lbs

Check out how petite Serena looks next to Taylor Townsend on the left lol. Think Taylor would Deffo win at arm wrestling out of the two of them!
said on 17/Feb/16
Serena next to Angelique Kerber at the Australian Open 2016. Kerber is listed between 5'7 and 5'8 and 150 lbs, which seems reasonable. From the pictures one can clearly see Serena is 2-3 inches taller and at least 50 lbs heavier. My guess is Serena is about 200 - 210 lbs.
Moke said on 4/Feb/16
I very much doubt Serena weighs 190 lbs, lol.
tiny said on 3/Feb/16
I take back my words. Realised during the prize distribution that thought Kerber is a strong girl she is nowhere close to Serena in size. Kerber's arms and legs are close to Serena's but her shoulders, chest & butt are tiny compared to Serena's. Kerber who is a 5'7" & 175 lbs is a big girl but compared to Serena is very petite. Serena can give any NFL linebacker a run for his money with those broad as a barn door shoulders and tree trunk like legs
tiny said on 30/Jan/16
Watching the Australian Open Women's final right now and if anything Serena's opponent Angelique Kerber has got arms and legs that are as big as Serena's. Both of them are easily the strongest women on tour right now and the only other girl who is close to them is the German Sabine Lisciki whose legs are just like huge tree trunks and are easily bigger than Serena's. I'm assuming Serena weighs 190 lbs, Angelique is 180 lbs and sabine Lisciki is 185 lbs. These 3 are the strongest girls on tour.
Tunman said on 4/Dec/15
I'm not sure she would be as high as 190 lbs.Maybe 180 tops.Remember that an important thing in Tennis is to keep mobility which becomes harder with more weight.175-80 is possible because she's a rare example of a large framed woman who manages to stay fast.
Tennis weight listings are funny,they still keep Sharapova at 130 lbs when she must be around 155-60.

What about the difference in build Queen Latifah makes Serena look small built and I think Queen would destroy her in an arm wrestle! Lol
tiny said on 30/Sep/15
Yes, Serena and Queen Latifah are the same height of 5'10" and the Queen has a 3" footwear advantage in that pic with Serena. However the pic brings into perspective Serena's weight as the Queen is rumoured to be between 200 - 210 lbs and is huge compred to Serena. Going by the size of the queen, Serena nust weigh about 190 lbs
littlesue said on 28/Sep/15
Serena in flat heels and Queen probably in heels which would explain the bigger height diference
Bbbbbbaaaaa said on 26/Sep/15
Check out a pic of Serena next to Queen Latifah! She actually looks timy in comparison!
Dom said on 14/Sep/15
Roberto what are you talking about?! Serena is indeed very large and tall for a woman but she doesn't look over 175 pounds which is still pretty heavy..
Vincent said on 11/Sep/15
I met Serena briefly a couple of years ago. I am a 5' 7' , 200 pound power lifter and she was twice my size., she is easily 5' 11' and 200 or more pounds. She is symmetricel but compared to Roberta Vinci who is 5' 4 ' and 132 Serena looks like a line backer. by the way Roberta won in the semi final. Viva Italia
Roberto said on 6/Sep/15
Hey Tennishead, what have you been smoking? Serena Williams is 170 lbs? Maybe when she was 8 yrs old. With a build like that she absolutely tilts the scales at a minimum of 215 lbs. I bet she could squat damned close to nfl linemen averages. A 170 lb wimp would look like the straw man compared to this brute. Her massive ass and legs are a pretty good bet on the power source dept if you haven't noticed. My girlfriend weighs in at 253 (she's on a new diet) and doesn't look more than 5 lbs heftier than Serena. I assume you report your weight as 50 lbs lighter also? Hey if your ass was in a butter tub like Serena's would you really care either way? I know I wouldn't..
Shut up said on 29/Aug/15
Some folks with their stupid frivolous comments. She is not huge or a amazion women. Who cares what she looks like compared to a smaller woman. Compare her to someone with her own dynamics. She is a athlete with a "athletic build" she is also african american which you cannot compare to a caucasian who fits the exact measurements on the bmi chart. The body compsition and visceral fat will never be the same ever. Serena will never be white girl thin, and she is ok with that. Not everyone wants to look like that. She is thick she is fit she is a amazing black athlete.

Why are people saying she is 5'11? Serena herself claims 5'9.
Neil Craig said on 13/Jul/15
If Serena has claimed to be 5ft 9in, how can Michelle Obama, claiming to be 5ft 11in (and pictured together on her husband's page, pictured together with Serena in similar footwear) be that height, as they appears to be, at best, less than 0.5in in height difference?
xcvb said on 13/Jul/15
There is no chance that Serena is only 5'8. There are many pics proving that she is a bit taller than 177cm wozniacki.
Also I have seen a madame Tussaud's wax statue(which uses proper measurements of celebrities) of Serena in which she is standing in a completely straight posture with sports shoes. I am a guy of 5'7(170cm) and was reaching only upto her eyebrows. Also i felt that my skinny arms and legs looked like matchsticks compared to hers :P

Look at pictures her with Laila Ali, who's 5'10....there's no way that Laila is only an inch taller and they're both wearing similar size sneakers.
5'8 at absolute best.

She was 4"-4.5" shorter than Mariah Sharapova in person (who was around 6'1.5").
gene said on 30/Jun/15
The issue here is if she is lying about her size..not if she is large. If you are large just admit to it. Nobody is saying she isnt a great tennis player, people are just getting sick of this weight of someone way smaller and a head half the size. Cmon just admit your big and go on with it.
Kenn said on 29/Jun/15
I saw her practice in Miami. She's 5'10 eye to eye with me when I got her autograph. But I was surprised at how lean she was. I don't know why the camera makes it seem that way. But she doesn't look like a bodybuilder or anything. She just looks fit. I've seen more muscular girls on the volleyball team in college. Weight is a tricky thing to judge. I've seen girls weigh 150 and look 200 and vice versa. I did feel like she wouldn't be a challenge to lift I would guess 160lbs. Her body composition just gives the illusion she is stronger than she appears. She was actually kinda small up top.
Tania said on 15/Jun/15
@Sere: I guess they don't bother to include a height and weight check with their physical checkups? A lot of player measurements are taken when they're in their early teens and they probably forget to update it in their profiles later (there is no way Sharapova is only 130 lbs). And in tennis, knowing an opponent's exact height and weight doesn't give much of an advantage anyway, so I guess it's just not a matter of concern for tennis players at least.
Sere said on 10/Jun/15
Just can't figure it out why a professional tennis player is not sure about her height or lie about that. Those athletes' measurements should be most precise of all people.

One of Serena's legs look as big as the whole of Eva.

Serena is looking absolutely huge in the french Open with massive biceps and legs. The differnce in size between her and her quarterfinal opponent Sara Errani was quite a sight. It looked like Serena could have easily hoisted the 5'2", 120 lbs Errani high into the air. There is no woman in the WTA who could come close to Serena in strength except for Sloane Stephens who has the same upper body as Serena but loses out in the legs.

Check out this pic of the singles champ Serena with the doubles champs Sara Errani & Roberta Vinci.
Sara Errani & Roberta Vinci at 5'4" are short but they are 2 powerful women. However when compared to the 5'10" Serena they look tiny. Serena can easily carry one of them on each hip at the same time.
tiny said on 28/Oct/14
Serena at 33 is much older and slower than all the young girls on tour but she is still much better than them. No one comes even close to her in terms of technique and strength. The closest challenger is Maria Sharapova who gets blown away each and every time.
Poof said on 22/Oct/14
She looks maybe 225 lbs. And taller than listed given various photos, closer to 6'. Sje's also pumped up with steriods and when she stops playing with decompress like Arnold, then balloon into sheer fat.
Tennis head said on 9/Sep/14
Clearly no one here, except one person, watches tennis or understands how tv makes you look bigger. Embarrassed.... Smh
Met her several times. She is 5'9 and approximately 170. She looks thin in person. Think people... She is number one in the world, has a six pack which means she eats a clean diet, and doesn't get her muscles from weight lifting. Please do some research and stop the foolish guessing. Just research! Simple.
tiny said on 9/Sep/14
If Kei Nishikori had won the men's title at the US Open the pic of the men's & women;s champs together would have made for a interesting comparison. Serena (5'10", 180 lbs) is not only taller and heavier than Nishikori (5'9", 168 lbs) but she is way more muscular with bigger biceps, broader shoulders and thicker legs.

There is a big big difference between taylor townsend and serena. Serena is a muscular master built athlete. Townsend is a sloppy waste of potenetial that needs to drop 30 pounds if she ever wants to maximize that potential and be a top wta player.

Taylor Townsend is a supremely fit athlete just like Serena. Its not the height or weight but the game that matters. Thats why we have skinny champions like Sharapova & Ivanovic and well built champions like Serena & Kvitova

Taylor Townsend looks a lot bigger built than Serena! She could snap Serena in 2 with ease! It's weird seeing Serena stood next to someone who actually makes her look skinny.

The 2 German amazons Sabine Lisciki (5'11. 154 lbs) and Angelique Kerber (5'8", 160 lbs) are as powerful as Serena. Infact Angelique has huge legs that are way thicker than Serena and Sabine is just as thick as Serena. Wonder what these German girls do to develop such strong legs. Inface Angelique's arms are alsmost as thick as Sharapova's legs

@Mina: Wozniaki is not an inch over 5'8", dont know where the 5'10" for her came from. The pic you have posted gives a nice comparison of Serena's massive upper body with another athlete's. I'm guessing Wozniaki's weight as 155 lbs compared to Serena's 185 lbs

She is not 5'9". Here's a picture of her and Caroline Wozniacki (listed as 5'10") taken this week a few days after her 2nd round loss. From that picture she looks about 2 inches taller than Caroline. So I would think that she is almost 6 feet tall.
tiny said on 26/May/14
Serena is at her biggest at the French Open. She looks absolutely huge, dont know if its her clothes or she has really piled on the muscle. She is easily in the 185 - 190lbs range. Looks like her lower body alone weighs as much as the whole of Maria Sharapova
hwood34 said on 24/May/14
There is no way she is her listed weight. Her legs combined weigh 135
SAK said on 19/May/14
Compared to general public she is tall. Compared to other female tennis players she is average.
Azarenka(6f0), Kvitova(6f0) and Sharapova(6f1.5) are tall girls. Not being overly tall has helped Serena in the movement and athleticism department on top of being highly skilled and powerful.

They are both lying! Sharapova looks like shes a twig today so that would make her about 75 pounds?!
tiny said on 30/Dec/13
Was watchign Sloane Stephens play in the Hopmans Cup and she is just a spitting image of Serena Williams. Like Serena she has huge muscular shoulders and arms and is just as powerful in the upper body. Its just in the lower body where Serena is stronger with her tree trunk like legs. Guess as Sloane gets older she will become be bigger than Serena. As is their habit the WTA has listed Sloane at 135 lbs and this is a joke just as Serena's listing of 145 lbs. I guess that if anything Sloane is just about 10 lbs lighter than Serena and that would make her atleast 170 compared to serena;s 180.

@Swtt: Nice comparison pic. Serena certainly looks tiny next to Taylor Townsend who is listed at 5'6" & 170 lbs. Guess since Serena is about 4" taller she and Taylor both weigh about the same. However I am sure taylor will only get taller, bigger and stronger so she is going to be the next big thing (pun unintended) in womens tennis

@Christopher: Yes Serena does have broad shoulders and a small waist for a girl her build which gives her the V shape of a swimmer but that is where the comparison with a swimmers body stops. Infact there are many swimmers on the US Olympic team with shoulders broader than Serena bu these girls are all over 6 ft tall and not as muscular as Serena. All these girls weigh between 170 & 190 lbs so I guess Serena should atleast weight as much as 190
said on 6/Oct/13Click Here
see picture (url, above)
Serena is listed (on the WTA) as being 5 foot 9",
Jankovic is listed as 5 foot 9 1/2
now, i watched Serena and JJ very closely during the presentation ceremony
and Serena* looks at least an inch (almost two, i would say) taller
than Jankovic... which would make her (approximately) 5 foot 10 1/2....
That was (i promise you) the height that Serena was listed at, back
in 2000, 2001 - before she (quite mysteriously) 'lost' an inch, circa
you could (til fairly recently) find archived SI and WTA webpages
(from 2000, 2001), in which Serena's was height listed at 5 foot 10
* regardless of the mane of hair etc.
Just as a personal aside, I have seen her close-up (being at tennis tournaments etc.) and Serena really does not look 5 ft 9 to me. Obviously, that is a perceptual thing but still... Also, i have seen lots of tennis players and
Serena really isn't especially 'big' or 'muscular' etc.
i can think of several female players have more developed muscles etc. etc. - they just aren't as famous, in the public imagination.... Physically, she has broad shoulders and narrow-ish waist. A swimmer-kind of build, really.

Victoria Azarenka has gained a lot of weight and looks huge now. Was shocked to see her at the US Open. Luckily her extra weight has made her more powerful and not sluggish. She was a healthy 160 lbs earlier but now I think is closer to 180 lbs.
tiny said on 3/Sep/13
Is Sloane Stephens the next Serena? Her upper body (shoulders, arms & back) are as muscular as Serena's but Serena has more powerful legs. Sloane is only 20 so she will only get more muscular & powerful. Guess in another 2 yeras she will be as strong as serena specially since serena isnt getting any younger.

Serena is neither the tallest nor the heaviest person on the WTA tour. To me, another black woman she looks perfectly normal, so it always confuses me to hear people say how 'big' or 'powerful' she looks, when other women on the tour look just as big and powerful to me. Seems to me something else makes her look bigger to some.

@silent d: hard to believe that Serena weighs only 2 kgs more that Azarenka. Yes Azarenka (6'0") & Sharapova (6'2") are taller than the 5'9" Serena but considering how muscular serena is I am sure she weighs atleast 85 kgs compared to Azarenka & Sharapova who weigh about 75 kgs
Silent d said on 26/Jun/13
Tiny venus is 6 foot 1 and serena is 176cm. Someone on sharapova's pg said serena was 88kg and azarenka was 80kg. I think serena is about 82kg and azarenka is about 80kg. Serena just looks huge because if she was taller, it won't look like she is built like a tank. 176cm.
K said on 23/Jun/13
Both Serena Williams and Valerie Vili show that you can't judge fitness by weight, alone. Both athletes are in much better shape than millions of young women who have the "right" weight for their height. Women vary in musculature and bone thickness just like men do.
tiny said on 19/Jun/13
Was watching a rerun of the Olympic Doubles Final where Venus & serena were playing against a Czech team and tho the czech girls were tall & big (both about 5'10" & 160 lbs) they were made to look tiny when they stood with the Williams sisters. Serena at 5'10" is about 4 shorter than the 6'2" Venus but she looks huge with her broad shoulders and thick arms & legs when compared to Venus who is also muscular but thinner. Serena would be about 185 lbs & venu sabout 180 lbs. Quite an intimidating pair of women.

Valerie Vili is indeed a woman of amazonic proportions, just scroll down on the link posted and check out this pic: Click Here

Serena is neither a giant nor an amazon, she is just tall, well built, muscular woman. The only giant / amazon in the world of sport is Valerie Vili the World & Olympic Shot Put Champion from New Zealand. Valerie Vili is 6'5" & weighs 267 lbs with massive shoulders and tree trunk like legs. Other shot putters who are usually very big girls appear tiny when they stand next to Valerie Vili so you can imagine how she woul dcompare next to a normal woman or for that matter even a normal man.
anon said on 9/Jun/13
What an amazing size comparison between Serena Williams and Sara Errani. Even though Errani at 132 lbs is well built for her 5'4" frame, Serena looked like a giant next to her. The Indian tennis player Sania Mirza who is a big girl at 5'8" & 154 lbs once said that she was shocked at how huge Serena looked across the net. So I guess it is safe too say that Serena is easily atleast a minimum of 175 lbs
tiny said on 7/Jun/13
Thank god the WTA has chosen to change Serena's listed weight to 154 lbs. Earlier she was listed at 132 lbs which is the same weight as the 5'4" Sara Errani who Serena just devoured in the French Open Semi Final. Personally I feel Serena is closer to 175 lbs considering her huge frame with those thick legs and broad shoulders.

Serena overpowers Maria Sharapova again, makes it 12-0 in meetings since 2004. There has never been a more dominating and physically superior No 1 in women's tennis when compared to the No 2 player. Unless Maria adds some muscle to her super skinny 6'2" frame there is no way she is goin to beat Serena
tiny said on 8/Apr/13
Serena seems to be only getting better and stronger with age. She was always muscular and huge compared to the other girls but nowadays this fact is even more visible. Just the other day in the family circle cup final she was standing with Jelena Jankovic who is the same height as Serena but serena looked so huge next to Jankovic. Serena's shoulders are broader then most men's shoulders
nona said on 8/Apr/13
Serena is dominating her older, taller sister quite easily. Despite venus at 6'2" enjoying a 5" height advantage she has never managed to dominate Serena except early on in Serena's career. Guess Serena is way too powerful for even her own sister, so god save the other girls who are so tiny compared to these 2 amazons.
Dennis said on 3/Apr/13
I saw Serena as she came out of the Eastbourne tennis tournament in 2012. I was standing a couple of meters away from her whilst a crowd of people surrounded her. I'm exactly 5 ft 8 (5 ft 8.5 when in the morning) and she seemed 1-1.5 inches taller than me - she is particularly imposing due to her musculature. That would confirm that she is indeed 5 ft 9 ( and almost, if not, 5 ft 10). However, I do remember her mentioning during an interview that before each match she heavily wraps her feet in bandages for protection. This, along with her trainers/sneakers, could potentially add a slight 0.5 inch or so.
nona said on 11/Mar/13
The only girl amongst the current top ones who is close to Serena in strength is Petra Kvitova who at 6'1" & 85 kgs with broad shoulders and muscular arms. Where Serena is superior is her core which is rock hard compared to Kvitova's jelly belly

Wta is not good reference for height listings. Serena is 5f9, and when playing the final of Brisbane 2013, was taking photos with Pavlyuchenkova (who is listed as 5f10). But she looked a good inch shorter then Serena. So in actual fact P'chenkova is more like 5f8.

The strongest female athlete in the world will have serena nowhere in the comparison. This would be between Valerie Adams (6'5" & 267 lbs) the Olympic & World Shot Put Champion from New Zealand and Gaby Garcia (6'4" & 236 lbs) the Jiu Jitsu champion from Brazil.

Serena walked past me at the Eastbourne tournament and believe me, she's at least 5ft10. For many years her weight was listed at 135lbs; that must have been when she was 11 or 12 years old. A male friend of mine who is a flabby 200 pounds and a little shorter, looks about the same size. When you think muscle weighs a lot more than flab, she's quite easily over 200 pounds. She's got a physique most men would be proud of. Sorry if this sounds ungallant. For years, I was skeptical, but as a seasoned tennis player and watcher, she IS the greatest of all time.

Agreed that Serena is larger than most men her height but then most 5'10" men except the overweight ones do not weight 200 to 215 lbs and serena is by no means overweight, she is just extremely muscular. forget Martina Hingis even a healthy 5'10" girl will look tiny next to serena
truth-b-told said on 19/Sep/12
Look at Serena and Martina Hingis who is 5'6.5, so Serena is about 5'10, also Serena is easily 200 to 215 average and anyone who believes she is 175lbs must be smoking something. She is larger then all the men at the same height, so why are so many people claiming she is a great athlete. She is a power player with only a few good shots.

Was quite amazed at the fight the skinny Azarenka put up against the muscular Serena

When I broke 5'10," I was crushed. I thought I was some kind of biological mistake. Little did I know I would come to treasure every millimeter --- and my dauhter is even taller and loves her height. Being tall has been a blast --- not only is it an advantage at work, where I am on eye level or near it with the men, but I feel lanky anf fasnionable when I'm dressed up in my 3 inch heels. If only I'd known all this when I was 13 and growing like a weed. I was teased mercilessly and was too shy to show my athletic skills because it was "unfeminine." Well, that was last generation! But I've come to believe now that there's beauty in every height, tall or petite, as long as you take pride in your body and nourish, exercise and feed it like the great gift it is.

Didn't. Serena use to be a male? Born will the name Dennis?

As muscular as she is serena at 0nly 5'9" & 190 lbs would look like a tiny schoolgirl next to Valerie Adams the Olympic Shot Put Champion from New Zealand. Valerie Adams is 6'5" & 267 lbs of sheer muscle whose shoulders. arms & legs are huge compared to Serena

Guess like the Dutch can boast of having the tallest women Nigeria can boast of having the strongest women. It's amzing how big the girl sin Nigeria are. On an average they stand about 5'8" & weigh close to 175 lbs. The biggest girl I have met when i was in nigeria was 6'2" & 220 lbs of solid muscle

Cryss: U r bang on target. The similarity in the physiques of Serena and Anowa Adjah is amazing. Considering Anowa is also 5'10" & 200 lbs guess Serena is atleast 190lbs as she is not a fitness pro but a tennis player
Cryss said on 4/Aug/12
She could very well be 200 or more. She's extremely built and I suggest you all look up Anowa Adjah "The Nigerian Powerhouse" She's a personal trainer and very VERY similarly put together like Serena. Whatever her weight she looks awesome!

I watched the match between Serena and Ekaterina Makarova and Serena is noticeably shorter than Ekaterina, who's listed as 5ft11. So Serena is at best 5ft8.
Makarova is 5ft11.5 @ worst, maybe full 6ft.

Venus is 6ft tall

Silent d - Ivanovic used to be about 77 kg but has lost weight now and is abt 72 kbs as u say. Serena at the Australian open must be close to 85 kgs and is by far the most muscular of all the girls playing. How much do u think Kvitove weighs, my guess is around 77 kgs

Please post photos to support these 200 lbs claims. I am yet to see pictures of Serena looking anywhere near these outrageous claims.-----------------------------
Silent d said on 7/Jan/12
I always thought she was fat and huge but 70kg 176cm is not that bad. I wonder how much ivanovic weighs. She use to have big muscular arms She is skinnier now. Still the hottest. I think she is 72kg. Serena is 176cm. No argument here. Next to safina who she demolished in the australian open a few yrs ago she was about 8cm shorter than safina.

Saw the latest pics of Serena frolicking on the beach in a teeny weeny bikini and must say that she has lost a lot of weight on her upper body around her shoulders and arms but her lower body is still huge. Her legs are bigger than most men her height. I think she now weighs about 180 lbs. A very attractive big girl.
nona said on 6/Dec/11
For all people calling Serena huge/fat/muscular etc I suggest you take a look at some of the women who do the shot put/discus and other strong woman sports to get an idea of what actually is huge for a woman. The biggest amongst all these women is the 6'5", 267 lb Valerie Vili who is a shot putter from New Zealand. To say that Valerie has got arms as big as Serena's legs will not be an understatement
VDN said on 1/Dec/11
is it good weight in 175 cm and 68 kg for male ?
nano said on 3/Nov/11
I had the chance to stand behind Serena in one of the sirport lines and to say she is huge is an understatement. I am a 5'9" decently built guy and her shoulders were much broader than mine. There was a 5'4" girl who might hav eweighed abt 140 lbs in front of Serena and the size difference betwn these 2 women was unbelievable. Serena could have easily lifted the girl in fron of her.
Joann said on 24/Oct/11
Are we forgeting muscle weighs more than fat and its obvious she has no FAT1 What ever her weight she wears it well given her height! I think she is a BRICKHOUSE!!!!
nona said on 21/Oct/11
Yeah there is no way Serena weighs 200 lbs. Considering her height and muscular frame she must be 185 lbs max. If you want to see how huge a 200+ girl looks take a look at the 5'10", 200 lb Amber Deluca or the 5'10", 240 lb Becca Swanson and you will notice how tiny Serena is compared to these amazons
Dom said on 13/Oct/11
There is no way in hell Serena weights 200, she's probably around 170-175.
anon said on 6/Oct/11
larock on 1/)ct/11 seems to have given us all the right explaination and coming from a tall athletic woman like her I think we should all accept that
Tony said on 2/Oct/11
Serena looks like she is close to 200 lbs when I watched her playing. No way is she in the 157 pound class. She needs to go on a weight watchers diet.
larock said on 1/Oct/11
well, I'm a 5'11 woman and at my biggest I weighed 200 (thankfully losing it now). I had a high body fat percentage, yet I actually never looked that big because of my height. People are always shocked to hear what I weighed. Serena is mostly muscle, and from pictures we seem to have a similar frame, so I can easily believe that she could weigh 200. It's kind of a no brainer: she's tall, her muscles are denser/heavier and she also has a higher proportion of body fat in the form of thighs/breasts and butt than her peers. You have to stop to thinking that heavier automatically means fatter. She's an athlete, these numbers aren't unusual.
Glenn Tolonen said on 28/Sep/11
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.
anon said on 26/Sep/11
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
Aries said on 22/Sep/11
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.

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
anon said on 14/Sep/11
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
nona said on 14/Sep/11
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.

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!
