Ty jsi ten nejlepší hráč na světě.


Explanation:
As this is apparently a fan letter talk, I would prefer more informal Czech idiomatic expression, almost like one-on-one talk, with accent upon you.

Note that using the precise diacritical marks is clear expression of both politeness, and basic Czech 101 skill. BTW, every MS Word processing SW has a Central European languages option for switching keyboard to Czech with proper diacritics (it took me some time to figure that out while being in the USA and starting learning working with PC some years ago...)

IMHO, using no diacritics while writing in Czech equals using Ebonics in white neighborhood...
