Djokovic Voted Among World's Most Influential Men
by ATP Staff|
In the sixth annual Top 49 Most Influential Men of 2011 list Djokovic ranked No. 19, with the only athletes to poll higher being FB Barcelona star Lionel Messi (No. 10) and Tour de France winner Cadel Evans (No. 11). This year’s Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open champion Djokovic finished higher than Barack Obama, Mark Zuckerberg and Rory McIlroy.
The magazine says of Djokovic: "Just when it looked liked Rafael Nadal was set to begin his long reign atop the men’s ATP rankings, the notoriously hotheaded Djokovic quieted all the outside noise, put all his tools together and reminded us why, right now, men’s tennis is the most exciting sport on the planet, after defeating Nadal at the 2011 Wimbledon Championships and the 2011 US Open."

AskMen this week announced the results of their annual reader survey with recently deceased Apple founder Steve Jobs claiming the No. 1 position after more than 200,000 votes were cast over the course of September. The Top 49 poll challenges the magazine’s readers to determine which men have made the biggest impact this year and shaped what it means to be a man of influence.
Reflecting on the 2011 poll, James Bassil, Editor in Chief, AskMen commented: "This year’s list is a true reflection of the times we live in, with technology being at the forefront, and visionaries like Steve Jobs inspiring our readers all over the world. Jobs held steady in the number one position for the last four weeks during our polling, which really pays tribute to his legacy."
