Top 5 Tallest Female Tennis Players in the World

Those who follow tennis know the sport has a default elite tag attached to it since its inception. Unlike football, it’s rare to find tennis fans jump up and down with excitement during a match and hoot for their favourite player at the top of their voice. Such classy is the game that even spectators come wearing stylish western formals and maintain a polite demeanor.

The players, on the other hand, have a glamour quotient attached to them. They present themselves in the most elite way inside and outside the court. Call it a preconceived notion but female tennis players are considered the most glamourous athletes in the world. And many of them can legitimately be called so because of their stunning model-like physique and incredible style sense. Few of the female athletes are so tall and slender that they can give any professional model a run for their money.

If you are wondering who are the tallest female athletes in the game of tennis, here is the list:
