I don't see myself fading away from it again as I appreciate the game itself more than I did when I was a teenager crushing on Andre.
Same thing with me, Kalli. My "tennis watching" in the eighties consisted of cheering for Andre, and cheering for anyone I thought Andre could beat later in the tournament(i.e. NOT Pete Sampras).

Once I got to the 90s, I became a little more diversified. Rafter and Guga were also favorites - unless they were playing Andre.
