SIX foot one must the perfect height for tennis. Rafa Nadal, Roger Federer and Pete Sampras - three of the greatest players of recent and perhaps all time that are that exact height. Between them they have collected too many slams between them in the past 20 years to worth bother counting.
I believe that 6'1'' is the perfect tennis height for two simple reasons.
- It is the minimum height a person must have in order to serve powerfully at an angle consistently (and obviously keep the ball in).
- Perfect height for chasing balls down, any taller and a player's maneuverability around the court would be hindered.
Thats what I think. What do you think?
