3. Boris Becker: 6 time Major Chapion, including Wimbledon at 17.

2. Steffi Graf: One of the top three women's tennis players of all time.

1. Michael Schumacher: 7 time Formula One Champion and according to wikipedia "According to the official Formula One website, he is "statistically the greatest driver the sport has ever seen".

Not bad, just not sports we follow, well other than tennis once a year.
