Has anyone else voted on the official WTA site for the "Sanex hero" for 2002 so far at http://stat1.amercom.nl/cgi-bin/webs...xnet2&banner=3
? I find the results strange to say the least (people can only vote once).
Monica Seles has about 2.5 times the votes of Martina Hingis in second place. Henin, Capriati and the Williams girls have less than half the votes Hingis has had.
Odd? Not at all. Don't understand why people are so surprised to see Monica win these polls by a landslide. If you watch tennis on T.V. at all - you can't miss the fact that Monica is usually the crowd favorite wherever she plays.
Monica is very popular, so it does make sense. I also think that people are speculating that retirement is near for Monica (she hasn't done so well this year...) and so maybe this is a good way to send her out! In any case, I think that she is worthy of a "hero" status no matter what, so I don't have a problem with that!
