There is no point-by-point similarity here, other than relative stature.
The music list is top-weighted with Germans and Austrians, the tennis list with Australians and Americans.
The composers belong to an older era.
This is for popular (rock era) musicians only;

1. Roger Federer = John Lennon
2. Rod Laver = Paul McCartney
3. Pete Sampras = Bob Dylan
4. Bjorn Borg = Jimmy Page
5. Rafael Nadal = Jimi Hendrix
6. Ken Rosewall = Bob Marley
7. Pancho Gonzales = Elvis Presley
8. Don Budge = Jim Morrison
9. Bill Tilden = Michael Jackson
10. Ivan Lendl = Pink Floyd (as a whole)
