Re: In which decade did you start watching tennis?

Gotta admit, i'm a newbie tennis fan eventho i spent half of my childhood on a tennis court watching my parents play thinking when the hell will they finish so i can even the clay or w/e the right term for that is. I had a racquet since i was born and there were always balls laying around but i never took much interest in it. Until a few months ago, when i became obsessed!
Plus this Spaniards and Latinos got my hormones raging, so watching is fun and satisfying at the same time

Re: In which decade did you start watching tennis?

Since 1992, somewhere around French Open. Courier was all the rage. Was absolutely dejected when Sampras lost the 1992 US Open final. Was absolutely elated when he won Wimbledon.

Re: In which decade did you start watching tennis?

early 90's.

tennis is so much more interesting now.

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.

OMG, another seles fans

always admired monica when knowing that she dethroned the almost ubbeatable graf, but i never got a chance to watch her play in her heyday as we had liittle tennis coverage at that time, then the stabbling turned me a real fan, so i started to follow her and tennis ever since her come back i.e. 1995 but now, ai ........ she will never come back

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.
