Victoria Azarenko’s degree of influence
Bloomberg rates Belarusian tennis player among top hundred athletes for influence in USA
The Sportfolio Power rating ranks Victoria (currently #3 world seed) in 32nd place for her influence — purely across the USA. The rankings were compiled on the basis of achievements within the sporting arena and beyond, including advertising potential, advertising revenue and athletes’ social networking activity.
Victoria Azarenko has won 16 tournaments under the aegis of the World Tennis Association. This year, she won the Grand Slam’s Australian Open, as well as a large tournament in Qatar’s capital of Doha.
The first three places are occupied by James LeBron (basketball), Tiger Woods (golf) and Peyton Manning (American football).
