Nadal Makes's Most Influential List

It seems that the influence of Rafael Nadal reaches far beyond the tennis court. The ATP World No. 1 features prominently in a list of the world's Top 49 Most Influential Men of 2008, released today by
Back in August,, the world's leading men's lifestyle web site, asked its readers to help identify the most influential men of 2008: the guys who have had the biggest influence on the way other men behave, buy and think. More than 200,000 votes later, the results are in, and not surprisingly, a number of prominent sports personalities have made the final cut – including Nadal, who experienced a breakthrough year in 2008, capturing a fourth consecutive Roland Garros, Wimbledon, and Olympic gold. More recently, Nadal clinched the year-end No. 1 South African Airways ATP Ranking.
Paying tribute to Nadal, who is at No. 30 on the list, wrote: All sports need subplots, and Rafael Nadal supplied men around the globe with a scintillating story this year when he faced off against No. 1 seed Roger Federer in the Wimbledon finals for the third consecutive time. The pair proceeded to play the longest final in the tournament’s history, with Rafael Nadal ultimately coming out on top four hours and 48 minutes later with a hard-fought victory. Sports scribes and fans alike were left breathless by the phenomenal spectacle and three-time champ John McEnroe even went so far as to label it "the greatest match I have ever seen."
Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama tops the list of most influential men, followed by Apple Chairman and CEO Steve Jobs at No. 2 and American swimming superstar Michael Phelps at No. 3.
