TIME 100: Serena Williams makes the 2014 list.

TIME 100 Main Cover - Beyonce-Features Serena WilliamsTIME's 2014 list of the 100 most influential people in the world is their eleventh annual. Serena Williams is the only tennis player to make the cut, her second appearance on the list in its history.

This year she's one with Beyoncé, Barack Obama, Pope Francis, Xi Jinping, Carrie Underwood and 94 others. It's a little tough finding alignment between the incredibly diverse group of influentials. 

Dwyane Wade wrote William's entry. It's good insight into a very hard working soul.

Would you have picked a different player or are you in agreement with TIME?

The May 5 issue featuring Beyoncé on the cover is now available.
