Is Murray still growing?

Is it just me or is Murray taller every time I see him. I thought one can grow up to about 18 or so, but he seems taller every time even now.

Probably this also helped his service game which is a lot better this season IMO. What do you think?

I think he was 6'1 at the start of the 06 season and 6'3 at the start of the 07 season, not sure if he will get any taller though.

I dont think he is taller but he is for sure broader

His service imo has been helped by getting stronger - He has a very heavy raquet and extra strength has helped balance this

1st serve when it goes in is way better, he is holding much easier

% still low though

He still has a lot of filling out to do. Wait to see how good he is when he doesn't have the body of a gawky teenager.

On atptennis.com last year he was 1.85, now is 1.90 cm :shrug: I don't believe in ATP height but it is quite possible. Theoretically a man can grow till 25 years. Kiefer's height on atptennis was changing when he was 23 or something.

Exactly. Same thing with Monfils who started at 6'2 and now is 6'5

People can grow all the way till 25 or so, albeit very slowly after 17-18.

EDIT: Ops Voo de Mar already said thid.

he is gettin thicker though. his legs are much fuller. and he is getting more shoulders. i wish that his face would also get fuller, i think he would look cuter. its great to see a boy turning into a man, well almost. but to be 19 and have his body type already is great. i guess nadal would be an exception cause he already was so physically complete by the time he was 19, and he still may grow. djokovic is another who needs just a touch more filling in. monfils also needs to get thicker, he looks so gawky on court, but he can still hit the ball hard.

* and to hear that people can still grow till they are 25 gives me some hope. im 21 now and i think im going through puberty again. hahaha

Maybe I was just wrong with my information about growing.

I agree that he is thicker. Partly this might be due to more gym work, but also due to his age I guess. It's quite normal. He'll never look like Nadal though and that's good.

So we can agree that he obviously is still growing and has an improved serve this year? :p I hope for him that he won't grow until 25 though. :lol:

Monfils is pure muscle, and quite filled out.

I'm 24 now and I have the same height since I was 15 :sobbing:
I grow a lot since then, but not in the height department :o

I can't see the difference of 0'3 between these two. For me Murray looks 1.87 / 1.88 cm (6'2) on this photo ;)
BTW it looks like Murray has longer head than Ljubo :D

in A Kooyong interview he said he has grow half an inch in 2 weeks during the Break. He said he was now 6'3 and aiming to add more muscle mass though he recons he won't be able to do a Rafa;)

Here's another picture. Andy looks 6'2" or maybe 6'2.5" if Ivan really is 6'4" exactly.

http://www.tennis.com.cn/bbs/uploadFiles/2007-01/7_4440716_2.jpg

I've seen Ivan looking more like 6'3" next to Marat and Tomas, though. But seen him looking 6'4" elsewhere.

Heights are tough to measure as the fluid in your back and joints slowly compresses from when you wake up until you go back to bed so we all get shorter during the day.

I don't know about Wee Andrew but Rafa looks like he is still growing... this week anyway.

Take another look at this picture. If Ivan is exactly 6'4 then this looks as if Murray is 6'3.
Strangely Ivan has by far higher shoulders so Murray catches up with his long face and neck:p

Andy's brother is 6'3 too so genetics must play a part.

Yea, i noticed that about his legs too. They've gotten thicker and they kind of remind me of Roddick's. Must be the specific training Brad does with him. Thankfully, Murray hasn't taken on the attributes of Roddick's game, if there is such a thing.

It's weird how people carry on growing until their into their early 20's like Murray and others like Nadal just mature at such a young age, I guess its all genetics. In my case I stopped growing when I was about 15/16, Im 6'3.

In 2003 Gaudio and Nadal were roughly about the same height, Now Nadal is 4 inches taller at least (maybe more?)

He was only 16 back then

Your notion is quite on target. Nevertheless, biology and mother nature aren't always precise. It all really depends on your genetic build up and metabolism. Generally men reach their growth maturity at around 18, it was long believed that one could continue growing until 21. I am sure he's about as tall as he'l be, the same goes for Sharapova, she did grow about 2 inches since winning wimbledon '04.

(by the Way Sue (cobalt) May interject and give her opionion as a professional physician I am sure she probably did I am too lazy to go on and search the entire thread to see if she'd inquire on this question)

Sharapovas just weird. Women stop growing earlier than men. At about 16 girls stop growing. I stopped growing at 15, 6 foot and people like Sharapova worry me!
