Anyways here is a list of the most popular which includes Federer, Nadal and Stosur, and least popular athletes from the survey.
Based on the conversations I have with people, I'd actually say this is relatively accurate. Personally I'm not a Nadal fan, but I know plenty of people in this country have a lot of respect for Federer, Nadal and Stosur, as far as cricketers go McGrath, Ponting and Clarke are well looked upon, and the 'disliked' list... pretty much spot-on. Warne and Tiger are 50-50, Serena is pretty much universally disliked, as is Fevola.
