No. 30 of the most influential people

02.10.2007 | Tennis

Roger has been voted No. 30 in a list of the 100 most influential people in the world of sports.


American magazine BusinessWeek, in partnership with ESPN The Magazine, has released its 'Power 100' list. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell tops the list, followed by Tiger Woods and NBA Commissioner David Stern. The list is dominated by league executives, media power brokers, team owners and sports manufacturing chiefs. Roger is one of just six athletes in the Top 30.


Golfing star Woods is the highest-ranked athlete at No.2, followed by Indianapolis Colts' quarterback Peyton Manning (13), soccer star David Beckham (17), Cleveland Cavaliers basketballer LeBron James, New York Yankees baseballer Alex Rodriguez (28) and Roger (30).


Roger has held the ATP No. 1 South African Airways ATP Ranking for a record 192 consecutive weeks and last month won his 12th Grand Slam title at the US Open to move to within two of Pete Sampras's record 14 majors. In November our star will attempt to win the Tennis Masters Cup title for the fourth time in five years.

Who is making this list? Obviously Roger deserves it, but Sharapova in the same category?

Dear Roger,

I have a good one for you: I was reading Michael Dibdin's book "Back to Bologna" -- an Aurelio Zen mystery. One of the lines in the book goes, "If you challenged Roger Federer to a game of tennis you'd lose too. How humiliating is that?
