Forbes Top 100--3 Tennis players

FROM Forbes annual list of most powerful celebrities on earth--the list includes entertainers as well as athletes. 3 tennis players made the list, none of them male. Shocking? Are Sharapova, Serena, and Justin more famous than Federer and Nadal? To be fair in the criteria is included web hits and exposure to television and print media. My guess is the women are either better marketed, or simply those who follow them are more passionate. For those who think that the WTA is somehow a drag on tennis...maybe this is something to think about.:)

Sorry, mistake on my part: Fed is indeed part of the 100 at 23. Still, 3-1 WTA.
