My option isn't there. 50's.
haha. Like you, I was a little put out that the options only started from the 70's. You've got me beat though - I started watching in the 60s

Early 90's, I use to be crazy about Sabatini and Courier.

I started early 90s with Sergi Bruguera but then lost interest afterwards. But I remember being a fan of McEnroe when I was very little.
Started watching properly in 2008 when i discovered Novak Djokovic.

90s. First match I remember watching was the final of RG94. I was 4 back then. When Berasategui lost I felt completely devastated.

I watched Wimbledon begrudgingly for as long as I can remember as my mother always watched it but I used to hate it as a kid. I remeber her explaining the rules to me, must have been early 00s. I enjoyed it a bit more after that and started watching it properly in 2004, and playing it, and have ever since.

Sorry for forgetting to have this option in the poll.

I think it's great that you stayed loyal to tennis for such a long time
