Roger makes Time’s 100 list

04.05.2007 | Off Court

Time magazine has named Roger among the 100 most influential people in the world!


„Being able to promote tennis with my efforts on an off court is of great importance to me. For this reason, it is a great honour to appear in Time magazine’s list. It is once again proof that I am moving into the right direction.


It fills me with joy to be a role model for others as I can inspire other people with my actions. This is one of the reasons why my Foundation is so important to me: it gives me the opportunity to influence the lives of others in a positive way and share my success with them.


Also, I would like to point out that there are many other personalities who would deserve to be mentioned in this list.”


Roger appears alongside other influential figures that include Pope Benedict XVI, Al Gore, Elizabeth Edwards, Condolezza Rice, Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney, Tony Dungy, Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, John Roberts and Chien-ming Wang.

Time's fourth annual list is a compilation of the editors' picks of the 100 most influential people in world business, education, politics, government, sports, the arts and entertainment. Roger is listed in the category “heroes and pioneers”.
