How tall is Carlos Alcaraz Garfia?

Alcaraz stands tall at 6-foot-1.

His height is considered average for a tennis player – Nadal is also 6-foot-1.

According to CNN, “Distance is especially important in tennis because of the power, height and bounce that can be generated by the server, making it more difficult to return a player’s serve.”

Ivo Karlovic, who is 6ft 10 tall, is considered one of the tallest players of all time and can serve up to 155 mph.

Alcaraz’s long legs certainly helped him on the pitch too.
