TENNIS IS MOST POSITIVE SPORT, ACCORDING TO POLL

A poll of 1,400 sports fans, conducted by Barclays Spaces for Sport, has revealed that tennis is recognised as producing the most positive global sports role models.

Five-time ATP World Tour Champion Roger Federer was voted top male sports role model with 18 per cent of the votes, while former tennis player Steffi Graf was the top female role model with 20 per cent.

The poll also revealed that sportsmanship (66 per cent), health and fitness benefits (57 per cent), teaching discipline and abiding by rules (60 per cent) are all considered more significant benefits of playing sport than actually winning (22 per cent).

Eighty-one per cent of those polled felt that sport was 'very important to society'.

Re: Tennis Is Most Positive Sport

wonder about the statistics behind this, maybe they were taken near the Nick Bolletieri and Sanchez-Casal academies

When you hear about the crimes committed by American football and baseball players, the ATP stories read like Mary Poppins.

As if you really believed that view.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

However this is not true for club tennis or family sport. Most of tennis dads go crazy or get into fights.
