Shortest Tennis Player?

Who is the shortest active tennis player?

I think it is Argentina's Nicolas Todero (ranked 382) who, according to the wonderful atp website stands a massive 6 inches (15 centimetres) tall. He could fit right into the palm of my hand
Sadly, he weighs 81kg. His BMI must be horribly dangerous

Re: Shortest Tennis Player?

The dude Sela used to be 2 cm tall on the ATP site I think.

Have they fixed Mannarino's profile yet?

Re: Shortest Tennis Player?

Seems Sela and Mannarino had big growth spurts lately

Re: Shortest Tennis Player?

Simone Vagnozzi looks quite short to me in pics, but I've never seen him in person, how tall is he?
He has fantasy numbers in his ITF profile (I doubt he weighs 44 kg), his ATP profile says 1,72 m, which wouldn't be that bad.

Re: Shortest Tennis Player?

Brian Dabul used to be down as 5'2'' but now he's down as 5'7'', Rochus maybe.

Re: Shortest Tennis Player?

Vagnozzi really looks short in this picture.

Dabul must be something like 1'70m tall. I've taken a picture with him once and he was just a little bit shorter than me.

Yes, he's down as 170cm, he used to be listed quite a bit shorter, like Olivier Rochus, 5'4'' a few years ago to what now, about 5'6''?

Re: Shortest Tennis Player?

My post about Vagnozzi was a question, actually, sure somebody here has seen him play and can say how he looks like in person?
Is his ATP profile (172 cm) correct? That would be the height of Clément, for example.

1.72m sounds correct.

Flavio is also really short (and it partly explains his frustratingly poor serve). Jesse Levine too.

Re: Shortest Tennis Player?

OK, thanks. The pic is confusing then. He looks shorter than the likes of Cipolla, Clément, etc. in the pic.

Re: Shortest Tennis Player?

Rochus is the shortest player on tour, I saw him playing in Rotterdam against Karlovic!
