I also voted for "Others"

* Brett Lee (Cricketer)
* Matthew Hayden (Crikecter)

Even though I don't like cricket, but both names are very famous in Australia

I voted for Serena of course.

And I voted for 'others' for Michael Vick of American Football fame. He plays QB for my home team, the Atlanta Falcons and he is just phenomenal. There are two eras in Atlanta football: pre and post Vick... and not only is he FINE but he has serious game.

Williams x2 Clijsters Golovin Ivanovic Li Jackson
Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

Svetlana Khorkina - Gymnastics

Anyone who watched the 2000 Olympics on TV has to have been really mesmerized by this woman.

Definitely David Beckham. Everywhere that receives BBC World Service, ie the whole globe, has heard of him even in deepest Africa and Asia.

Bradbury... is that the guy who won gold in speedskating? The most hilarious speed skating race all time!

*can't help but jokingly wonder if he's related to Ray*
