another stupid journalistic error!

this is from an article up on cnnsi.com. its reporting on Pierce's play in Berlin.
umm, I'm pretty sure that Pierce beat Martina Hingis in 2000, not conchita martinez...
who ARE These people who get paid to write tennis articles??


"Pierce, who has been through hard times since beating Spain's Conchita Martinez in the 2000 French Open final, showed glimpses of her old form in the first set of her match against Diaz-Oliva. "

Mary eliminated Conchita in the final and Martina in the semifinal.
