Oh yeah I was a one man woman back then. I loved me some Boris Becker, though. But even he had nothing on Andre. I suffer now when my favorites play each other (Safin/Baghdatis was rough, I don't even want to contemplate a potential Safin/Nadal match) but back then my love ended when Andre was across the net.
