Roger Federer is the second-most respected man in the world!!!

FEDERER, MANDELA ARE WORLD’S MOST RESPECTED & TRUSTED

Roger Federer paid a visit to an Ethiopian school funded by his foundation in 2010.
Roger Federer’s reputation as a respected, admired and trusted personality is second only to that of former South African president Nelson Mandela, a new global study of more than 50,000 people in 25 countries shows.

Federer finished ahead of the likes of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey and Bono in the 2011 Leader RepTrak, which assesses the reputations of the world’s 54 most visible public figures in politics, business, culture and sports. Derek Jeter was the second highest-rated athlete on the list at No. 16, while David Beckham finished at No. 24, one place behind LeBron James.

“The results of Reputation Institute’s study confirm that people respect leaders that participate in philanthropic activities outside of their own celebrity,” said Reputation Institute Chairman, Dr. Charles Fombrun. “The public’s top two on our list, Mandela and Federer, have emotional ties to South Africa, and donate both time and money to the betterment of the region and its people. They get praise for their efforts.”

The 30-year-old Swiss, a winner of a record 16 Grand Slam titles, has been actively involved in charitable activities on the ATP World Tour - including the Rally For Relief to support Queensland flood victims earlier this season - and through his own foundation. The Roger Federer Foundation supports education and sports projects in Ethiopia, South Africa, Malawi, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Switzerland.

Rank Name RepTrak Pulse
1 Nelson Mandela 78.5
2 Roger Federer 72.1
3 Bill Gates 71.7
4 Warren Buffett 69.7
5 Richard Branson 68.3
6 Steve Jobs 68.3
7 Oprah Winfrey 67.7
8 Bono 67.7
9 Ratan Tata 66.3
10 Elizabeth II 64.9

Even better than Bill Gates and Oprah. No one in tennis or sports in a whole could ever reach that status.

Being more respected than Bill Gates is obviously a great achievement. But more respected than Oprah? Federer should be more respected than her.

Another runner up title for Federer behind his nemesis Mandela. All Nelson had to do was to attack the BH

Re: Roger Federer is the second-most respected man in the world!!!

The initial top 7 look pretty impressive, especially when Fed is bunched in with the likes of Mandela and Bill Gates. However, when you read the rest and realise that LeBron James is 23rd, it loses a lot of credibiility.

Still, hats off to Fed.

WTG Fed



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie

25 countries are hardly the world, and more than half the people from US, what a surprise for a survey done by a US company Anyway, kudos to Roger, except for Mandela he pwns the rest of the list

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
