Perhaps it might be fair to say that Mark has half the cricketing tact of Steve, rather than twice the talent.

Bravo!

Unfortunately, I don't have a VB in my hand, or I would hunker down and debate this with you. You make fair points. I just make sweeping statements.

P.S: Greg Norman is just as bad as M.Waugh, IMO. - No need to prove me wrong, thanks.

Let me make this one point though:
Waugh Brothers vs Chappell Brothers.
Mark is the under-achiever out of all four. He should be like Greg, statistics-wise.

No Matter.

I'm in America now, I should be debating if Jason Williams is the best player in NCAA Hoops!

Patrick Rafter

--Not just b/c he's, well, a god to look at He also happens to be one of the nicest guys in the whole sport. I mean, he turns around and donates his winnings at the U.S. Open to charity. Throws a huge party for his friend. Starts his own charity (cherish the children). Is the nicest guy on the court (says "sorry mate" every time his ball is askew)...

*sigh* I'm in love.

I've always had a soft spot for Martina Hingis, for no apparent reason. But she better stop driving me to near-heart attack like she did in the Australian Open final this year (my God what a match that was though, who says that women's tennis is worthless now, Mr Rios?).

Wow, I agree. I wish she'd win a major, any major. Poor girl. The French is coming up...
