It's funny, and this is no slight against the thread starter, but the poll made me feel old, even though I typically feel anything but. I guess it suggests that it's assumed that nobody over the age of 45 knows how to use the internet. Maybe not too far from the truth...haha.
Anyway, I started watching tennis in the late 70's. Some good stuff back in the old days.
