Hi there - new kid on the block (in one sense). Born in 1966, my tennis era is the 80s - Borg, Connors, McEnroe, Becker, Edberg, Leconte, Navratilova, Graf ... spoiled for choice really. Knew it at the time too! In the 80s. early 90s my favourite haunt every year was Wimbledon - 9 years in a row. Going back this summer to bring back the memories. Hoping to see some good matches - didn't have any luck in the ballot, but will be happy with a daily ground pass.

Awww. Back in the queue on the cold, wet pavement again. Sigh.

Welcome aboard, topspin. A couple other of us children of the 60s/80s meet up ev'er now and then in the 30-Love Club (http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=30655). A slightly older group with a slightly different view of life. Some have mates or kids, others don't...but it's a friendly group.

And I miss those days of Borg, Conner, Edberg, McEnroe. Some of the new kids give me a little hope but it's still not quite the same.

Have you read Mac's biography? I'm about half way through (now that the weather has broken here in Virginia, I'm spending too much time on the courts to get too much reading done ;) )

Again...welcome.
