You must be thinking Roddick, Nalbandian, Wawrinka, Baghdatis, Malisse, Dodik,... but not of them

I just looked at the ATP site ranking of all 100 players in few minutes and found out that only 2 are overweight by Body Mass Index. I just needed to calculate for Roddick and all others are obvious normal at first sight








Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
6
Singles Ranking

Height:
6'2" (188 cm)
Weight:
200 lbs (91 kg)




Janko Tipsarevic
9
Singles Ranking
Height:
5'11" (180 cm)
Weight:
183 lbs (83 kg)



next big fish :)



Michael Berrer
106
Singles Ranking

Height:
6'4" (193 cm)
Weight:
220 lbs (100 kg)

:worship::worship::worship:


Correct me if I forgot someone other cause i've done this in 5 minutes .



So Tipsarevic and Tsonga still could improve a lot of their physics as we know that MOVEMENT is most important part of modern game.

Tsonga style of playing favors short points, powerful strokes, but he has obvious poor movement in a rallies and Tipsarevic as BASELINER needs urgently to lose some weight if he thinks not to risk serious injury and want some decent results next year.
This explains why he always get injured in high pace matches like with Djokovic at US Open when he played high quality match 2 sets and then just disappear...

Plus, players often have incorrect stats.

A few years ago, Federer's weight was listed as the same as Nadal. Since they're the same height, just look at the difference in their arm size and you know that Nadal must be heavier, thus Federer's weight stat is bumped up for some reason.

No surpises that Tsonga is the leader of the pack. Such a clown he is.

And how did Roddick miss this list. He would have bribed ATP.

I was gonna point out how ridiculous it is to use BMI for this but you all beat me to it.
Look at (American) football players. Most are probably "overweight" by BMI and some are world-class sprinters. And they all need to be able to move very quickly for short periods of time.

That's hard to believe to be honest.

If you are 6 foot, you are considered overweight by BMI if you weigh 185 (i.e.; BMI of 25 or greater).

For each inch add/subract 5 lbs.

I'm thinking more than just the guys you mentioned are "overweight".

BMI is such BS, especially if you're a male with some muscle mass.

Calculating the body fat percentage is better, though it's tough to measure correctly.
