Famous athletes who have same initial for first and last name...to honor ZiZou!

I'll fire off with a few, please add to the list

B: Boris Becker (tennis)

D: David Duval (golf)

J: Jimmie Johnson (NASCAR)

P: Peter Parker (LOL)

U: Ugueth Urbina (baseball pitcher, not famous per se but still quite well known in baseball circles)

W: Will Witherspoon (NFL linebacker)

Z: The one, the only Zinedine Zidane

I'm sure there are more for popular characters like T, S, F, N etc but for X, Y, Q etc that might be a tough call...

M.D. Zizou is nickname of Zinedine Zidane, I'm sure you will hear more about him when he lifts the World Cup trophy on Sunday afternoon!

There are quite a few names in your list that I have no clue about. I am not saying I'm the biggest sports fan out there but I do follow sports closely on an almost daily basis. I have bolded them and if you could enlighten me, that'd be great.
