Thats because the list was made in mid 2000, before he won back to back Tour de France titles. Believe me, if the list was made in 2005, he'd be up there in the top 10.

So they can make many other lists, with different criterias, but Steffi was their greatest tennis player of the last century. PERIOD!

If I disagreed with your conclusion, would this start another Graff VS Seles World War??? To be honest I just don't have the time right now to prove that Monica was the very Bestest of all time.

You believe Monica is the greatest, its ok with me. As long as you dont get obsessed with making everyone believe that, I'm ok with it
I only have a problem when people start trying to impose thier opinions on others, thats all. Monica could easily be considered the greatest ever. IMO Steffi is the greatest, but its just my opinion!

Re: Associated Press Top 100 Athletes of the 20th Century

Whata bullshit list! It's biased and pathetic. Sexist and full of loopholes.
