I know the popular answer would be Sachin Tendulkar, and i too have high regard and respect for him. However my best sports person India has produced is Vishwanathan Anand. He was at the top of the world rankings five out of six times, from April 2007 to July 2008. He became the undisputed World Champion in 2007 and defended his title against Vladimir Kramnik in 2008. With this win, he became the first player in chess history to have won the World Championship in three different formats: Knockout, Tournament, and Match. Nobody, no sports person in India can proabably match that achievement.

I would say Vishwanathan Anand going by pure stats, I also liked Leander Paes, as he always improved his performance when playing for India (Olympics, Davis Cup) rather than Individual tournaments (The grand Slams )
