Hockey ka jadugar, the magician of hockey, even Hitler was his fan...

164 Rod Laver

Has to be rated as the greatest tennis player that ever lived due to his record spanning both the amateur and professional eras. He was also the first athlete to earn a Million dollars. His most outstanding feat among a list of many is making two grand slams in two eras, that in itself is insupassable. Rocket Rod you're the man of tennis. As for the greatest athlete of all time then you can't go past Jim Thorpe. To even contemplate anyone else shows a complete lack of understanding of the task set.

Ayrton Senna is the greatest driver of all time. Formula 1 racing can not be imagined without his name. His contribution to his sport was enormous. He proved himself in his short span of life. If he is still with us then nothing can stop him. He was a mercurial genius. He was a great champion and a very good human being. No praise is enough for him. He may have gone, but he will remain in our heart forever. He will always in the same league with Pele, Maradona and other legends.

A demigod in the world of motorsport. People unfamiliar with the sport may not recognize him today, but those who know will acknowledge that his legendary status is comparable to that of Michael Jordan and Muhammad Ali. Shared one of the most epic rivalries is sport-history with Frenchman Alain Prost (world champion 4 times - Senna himself 3 times). Died in '94, he remains the most recent driver to die at the wheel of a Formula One car.

Fact - the Brazilian was way ahead of M. Schu when he crashed at Tamburello, and M. Schu himself regarded Senna as the best driver in History, so there is no reason for him to stay back here

Senna Should be on the top 20 at least!
