So many people conveniently forget or don't realize this.
I agree - the BJK/Bobbie Riggs, Martina/Chrissie and Steffi/Monica rivalry are incredible eras...but what makes the 97-03 era different is that was the only time the women were consistently more popular than the men (we can thank the men too cause they were pretty boring...I mean Carlos Moya and Marcelo Rios as the #1??? That's like what the WTA is now).
