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.

Congratulations Roger!! That's a great honor, although I think you should have been higher up on the list! You deserve it, keep up the good work and good luck for your next match!
Love, Sarah

I wish these Americans would understand that the world is populated by many more than the 300 million people in the USA. Their view of the world is so limited that it is pathetic.

These are the people who stage a "World Series" comprising only team

Querido Roger.-

FELICIDADES!!! pero tú te mereces ser el # 1, aunque para todos nosotros tus fans lo eres.

Sigue conservándote así, tan especial como ser humano y tan grande como el mejor tenista del mundo.

Recuerda siempre que en cualquier situ

Have not seen you play since the U.S. Open. A tennis tournament without you is like a day without sunshine. You are missed. Can't wait for Madrid.
