This list does not only see sportsmen present but also and above all people from the political, social or even the world of cinema.
There are few sportsmen on this list, there is the star of the Nba Memphis Grizzlies Ja Morant and the American sprinter Erriyon Knighton, Under 20 record holder of the 200 meters and 18 years old with great room for improvement.

Alcaraz is considered by many to be the main heir of the Big Three and there is curiosity to see how the tennis player will grow in the near future.
Mouratoglou comments on Carlos Alcaraz
Holger Rune’s new coach until the end of the season, Patrick Mouratoglou, was full of praise for the young world number 1 in history, Carlos Alcaraz, born in 2003 as his new Danish colt.
In very complimentary remarks given to Tennis Majors, the French coach does not hesitate to compare the young Spaniard to the three legends of the 21st century, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. “He combines the qualities of the three greatest players of all time.
I think the one his game comes closest to is Federer. Like him, he’s super aggressive and super creative, always trying to do something with the ball. The speed with which he is able to go from the baseline to the inside is pure Roger.
And at the same time, he has the counter-attacking qualities of Djokovic. And he can play long rallies with a lot of spin, like Nadal. And to top it off, he serves very well for his size (1.83m), and he returns very well.”
Former Spanish tennis player Carla Suarez Navarro recently spoke about countrymen and current No. 1 and No. 2 ranked players – Carlos Alcaraz and Rafael Nadal. “Young players are coming and it is lucky that we have Carlitos, we should enjoy him and I think he will give us a lot of success in the future; Perhaps he can be a replacement (to Rafael Nadal), because, obviously, Rafa continues, but we are in his last years,” she said.
