    In 1996, a world-wide poll was conducted for the "Most Favourite Tennis Player". The results were as follows:

    1) Steffi Graf (38%)
    2) Pete Sampras (19%)
    3) Andre Agassi (18%)
    4) Gabriela Sabatini (15%)


    Who would be the top 4 today, what do you think?

    If you conduct a worldwide poll, I think about 80% of people won't even know 1 tennis player. Billions of people in China, India, Africa, haven't even got a clue..
