Re: In which decade did you start watching tennis?

The first tennis match I watched was the 2004 USO 1/4 final with Roddick. But I've been consistently watching and following tennis since Wimbledon 2005.

Surprising that GeorgeWHitler has only been watching tennis since 2000.

Re: In which decade did you start watching tennis?

1993 during the Australian summer. Saw a match on TV between Edberg and Woodbridge and became hooked and an Edberg fan (a shame it was so late in his career ).

Although I've been going to the Australian Open every year since 1996 I haven't been able to follow the sport properly since I got the internet in about 2000 or 2001 - very hard to get scores here if you don't have internet!

Was it 2001?

In the second round Roddick overcame Michael Chang while cramping in a tough five-setter. In the third round Roddick retired in the third set against Lleyton Hewitt after injuring his leg.

Re: In which decade did you start watching tennis?

The first match I recall was McEnroe def. Borg, Wimbledon 1981. Have followed the sport ever since.

I do remember watching the "Battle of the Sexes" between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs in (wow!) 1973. Aside from that, however, nothing really stands out prior to McEnroe-Borg.
