Federer Among Sports Illustrated's Power Players
by ATP Staff|
Roger Federer is among the Top 10 power players of world sport according to Sports Illustrated, the U.S. magazine.
The Swiss superstar is No. 3 in the list, behind NBA basketball star LeBron James and golfer Tiger Woods. Serena Williams, the WTA World No. 1, is seventh overall.
Sports Illustrated writes, “Never mind that he’s the most decorated men’s tennis player ever, is there a more likeable athlete?
“A 2011 Reputation Institute study listed Federer, 31, as the second-most-respected man in the world – behind only Nelson Mandela.”
Federer will play his compatriot Stanislas Wawrinka in the BNP Paribas Open fourth round on Wednesday at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event in Indian Wells.
