Re: In which decade did you start watching tennis?

I first became a fan back in 96 during the atlanta olympics. I watched every sport religiously for those 2 weeks; remember amy van dyken (sp?), keri strug, Donovan Bailey's world record and Michael Johnson's arrogance, the bombing (Janet Evans caught on tape), and of course Andre Agassi's and Lindsay Davenports gold medals.

I watched tennis off and on, follwed Hingis' career but didn't become a big fan until Venus' domination of the 2000 -2001 seasons. Actually, apart from Agassi, I didn't follow men's tennis until last year's final in the us open. Now I'm a roger federer fan for life.

That's amazing, having seen all the legends in the game
May I ask how old you were, when you started watching the game?

Re: In which decade did you start watching tennis?

First memory was Borg-McEnroe Wimbly 80, then Wilander at RG 82. I watched the Slam SF and F, and DC, with Swedes until maybe 90. I then was a very casual watcher until Wimbly 2004.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

Mate, I am not conservative. See, this is the definition given by dictionary.com:

Quote:
disposed to preserve existing conditions, institutions, etc., or to restore traditional ones, and to limit change.
And I am all pro change! For instance, I am pro having you banned. I don't want this status quo to persist. See how progressive that is!
