List RulesVote up the best women's tennis players over 5'10" in height.

How tall is the average female tennis player? The truth is, it varies greatly. Even just a passing glance at tennis player height comparisons will tell you that tennis players range from barely five feet to over six feet. Nevertheless, there are quite a few tall female tennis players currently dominating the sport. 

Tennis player height stats show many women on the taller end stand at/or over six feet tall. Petra Kvitová, Victoria Azarenka, and Maria Sharapova are all six feet or taller. Andrea Petkovic and Julia Görges don't quite make it to six feet, but get close at 5'11".
