The same happened to me when my fave tennis players retired especially from the 80's but you need soemoen to follow someone that you feel passionate about winning and then your interest will be rekindled.

Re: how does one rekindle his/her interest in tennis?

Anyone who says "love the game", well the game is dying. For the future of tennis, look at the WTA. How do people support that nonsense? They treat it like a combination of "The Jersey Shore", "Sex and the City", and pro-wrestling. If you don't like that, my advice is to watch the Nadal-Rosol match every time you get the urge for real tennis.

That's true, too.

And Fed beating Nole was refreshing too, there was two different players than in previous four slam finals.

Yea what everyone said above.
Love tennis, not just one player. That's how I have kept my love for tennis and I imagine others as well.

Re: how does one rekindle his/her interest in tennis?

Based on your posted age, could be you have a diminished attention span. That's not an insult; it's a sad reality for people of your generation based on the environment you grow up in. And to tell you the truth, I feel like MY attention span is decreasing the last 4 or 5, and I'm twice your age (still too young for senility, hopefully).

Takes notes everyone. This man embraces the true ideals of the MTF forumer.
