Can Google News (or ESPN) predict the future?

A funny thing happened today… I was searching Google News for tennis, wanting to read up on Andre Agassi’s amazing five-setter last night against Marco Baghdatis at the US Open.

Amazingly enough, second among the search results was the following text:

“ESPN: On late Thursday night Andre Agassi bowed out of the US Open…

 … following his third round loss to Benjamin Becker.”

Interesting… the article is dated September 01, 2006, and as I recall Agassi won last night’s second round match against Baghdatis. Agassi won’t get to play is third round match against Becker for a couple more days.
