Default I am not sure Richie is 6'1

I've been looking at pictures of Gasquet and I noticed he is shorter than other players who are also listed as 6'1 (1.85 m).

With Nadal


With Federer


And those were 2005 pictures when Gasquet was already listed as 6'1 so it wasn't like he was 5'11 at the time and then suddenly now is 6'1.

Do you think that sites exaggerate his height like some celebs exaggerate theirs? I saw some sites list him as 5'11/6'0 and that seems more correct. Don't get me wrong, I know it's a trivial matter and it's not my main focus like his tennis for example but I have the suspicion he's not what he says he is.

I don't understand anything about inches, feet etc... Is 6'1 the equivalant of 1, 82 meters? If so it's the right height. If not that's wrong.

I think 182cm or 183cm is 6 feet. maybe 6'1 is the same as 185cm

Well Anglo-saxons have difficulties admitting that a French made system can be easier to use (though the NASA has changed in the 70s or 80s to the International Unit System, thereby using meters and kilograms)

It's very annoying to work as an engineer with Americans for this reason... the list of stupid units they have is infinite . And then you realize that they have units with the same name than the English but that there value is different !
