Federer, Nadal among Forbes top 50

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have both been included among the Top 50 in Forbes Magazine’s annual list of the World’s 100 Most Powerful Celebrities. They also feature in the subcategory 10 Most Powerful Athletes. The list has been published since 1999 and takes into account earnings, fame, and global exposure in the media.

At No. 25 in the list, sixteen-time Grand Slam champion Federer is among the top 3 of the 19 athletes to be included, behind only Tiger Woods (No. 6) and Lebron James (No. 10), and ahead of David Beckham (No. 35).

"Federer still commands the most impressive endorsement portfolio in all of sports with 10 major deals including Nike, Credit Suisse, Rolex and Wilson," said Forbes Magazine. "He was the only one of Gillette’s original three 'Champions' to have his deal renewed this year as the brand dropped Tiger Woods and Thierry Henry."

Meanwhile, Nadal comes in at No. 46.
