One poll from year 99..
No tennis now, and I am watching my old tapes. Today that was a tape from Wimbledon 99, second round. Several interesting matches - Kournikova-Vento, Graf-De Swaardt, V. Williams-Tatarkova. Very fun commentary by Billie Jean. One thing that amazed was that it was the next day after Hingis was defeated by Dokic, and they were already running poll - "Will Martina Hingis win another Slam?". Yes, she lost to Dokic, but she was coming out of FO final, that she should have won, and winning AO. What reason did they have to run that poll at that time? When they do it now, it is explicable, at least now it really looks like a clear possibility, that Martina won't win another Slam. But back then!? Pretty prophetic, I'd say.
