lol I know he's not 5 foot like Scot :)) I think he has to be shortest men's tennis player to win a Slam?Olivier Rochus is another short house lol.

Lugburz:
There were times when shorter players used to be bullied by the aggressive play.
Now, taller players, instead of taking the actual advantage of being even slightly taller, they grind with them.

Swish:
Ken Rosewell was 5' 7".

morganli:
Maybe taller players have some advantage, but skills are more important. Sharapova is pretty tall but she makes three double faults in one game.  Well, height has more advantage in men tennis than women i would think. In men tennis if you are only 1.70m when Nadal hits a top-spin ball it will bounce over your head almost, (very tough to hit), and your serve will be of course slower.
