Post Most popular athletes online in 2001

Anna Kournikova is still #1, according to an article in the Press-Enterprise this morning. OUt of 20 athletes on the list, the only women are all tennis players, 1-Anna; 5-Martina Hingis; 12 - Venus Williams; 18 - Jennifer Capriati ; 19 - serena wiliams. The rest are all men, but there are no male tennis players on the list. The list is from Lycos.<br />WTA all the way!<br /> <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

What the world needs now is love, sweet love!

I believe this list is about internet users WHO USE LYCOS to search for athletes. Lycos is a sponsor of Anna K, and is paying big bucks these days to promote their AK web site, including full-page ads in magazines and tv ads, which obviously help increase traffic & help keep her on top of their list. Have you ever seen an ad for a Martina Hingis web site, for example?

At any rate, I am sure I am not alone in never using the Lycos search engine. I use only sthe wonderful "Google". <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I'm a GOOGLEr too. Maybe I'll have to drop by Lycos every time I log on, and search for my faves. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Yes Google is BRILLIANT and if you search in images it is even better!!!

"I probably respect Monica more than any other player out there. Not only as a player, but also as a good friend, and an amazing person. I was so happy to see her play well last week, and then score some big upsets here this week. But I was also very happy to close it out in two sets, because as we've seen these past few weeks, Monica never gives up." - Lindsay Davenport after defeating Monica Seles to win the Classic title
