Shortest final ever?

Both Gaudio and Coria are listed at a mere 5'9" and are probably shorter Is this the "shortest" final ever?

Re: Shortest final ever?

Gaudio likely is 5'9, but Coria is likely more like 5'8

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Yep Gaudio looks taller than Coria when they stand next to each other

PAW Singles Ranking - 396

Re: Shortest final ever?

Clement-Agassi wasn't a very tall final either! Clement is 5'8", but I think Agassi is 5'11"??

Hewitt and Nalbandian are both about 180 cm tall and there's no way really you can call them both 'short' if there are so many shorter guys around.

Re: Shortest final ever?

I think borg connors and vilas were not very tall guys, and they met in quite a lot of finals.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.
