Of course just about all on the list are Americans. Stupid pro-American
bias. At least one sane voice:

Some might have been influenced by the timing of the question.
Derrick Rose, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2008 NBA draft, voted for Roger
Federer.
"He's been the best for a long time," said Rose, now a Chicago Bulls rookie.
"I'd just want to study what makes him that."

Woods is greater in his sport than Fed is in his.

True. Woods has 3 career grand slams, and Federer none. However Tiger has
had nothing in his way of that comparable to Nadal.

No he is NOT.

Golf is a game not a sport.

That was settled long ago.

A survey of Americans once found out that 67% of them thought
of themselves as above-average :-)
I have no doubt that Obama would be voted 'The Greatest US
President' if
Americans are polled today. CEIBS is nowhere as pronounced as the
US.
A list of '50 all-time Greatest NBA Players', published in 1996
(50th anniv
of NBA), had *11* active players on it, including *7* who hadn't
won a
single NBA title till then (Barkley, Ewing, Drexler, Malone,
Stockton,
Robinson, O'neal). Some of them retired w/o a single title.
How many tennis all-time greatest lists would feature Rios despite
his
brief #1 ranking?
In short, all US-produced lists are best ignored.

Yes - exemplified by Jaros declaring Venus/Serena as the 2 greatest
claycourters of all time when they reached their 1 FO final.
