Heaviest player ever ranked in top 1,000

In this slow week of tennis I just noticed that Isner is now listed at 245 lbs on the ATP website. Has there ever have been a heavier player ranked in the top 1,000?

Check out Amir Hadad of Israel. He's really fat.

Looks like the spare tyre he's carrying weighs more than 195 alone.

Michal Tabara looked pretty fat last time I saw him, although he is a shorter guy. Labadze is certainly a hefty guy too.

Nice picture of Hadad. He certainly is fatter than Isner although he comes doesn't close in weight. At 6 feet even if he's only 195 lbs his body mass index (BMI) is higher than Isner's (26.44 vs 26.25). Michael Berrer has the highest BMI I could find among active players 27.5.

Whilst not in the realms of Hadad I have always thought Adam Kellner looked more than a little hefty in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIKa7c64XKo

Don't forget that other fat bastard, Irakli "Lamaze" Labadze.
