Sometime during the 90ies when Agassi and Sampras were the big names. I only watched the finals back then, a few of them. However, I first became a fan of a player in 2001 when Federer became a top 10.

1970s - got to see the "golden age" of tennis at the height of its popularity. Chrissie, Martina, Borg, McEnroe, Connors.

2000s -- 2003 I started getting into Wimbledon and the US Open and really started my tennis craze in the Masters Cup that year, though I had watched tennis once in a while before (Sampras-Agassi in the 2002 US Open stands out).

My first ever tennis match I watched was Boris Becker's match against Miles MacLagan in first round of 1999 Wimbledon. At the time I was wondering who Becker was and why the crowd wanted him to win in that 5 set match. Anyways I find out it was his final run into Wimbledon and that was he a former champ. Actually, 1999 Wimbledon was my first ever event I watched. I started watching tennis there during the summer of 99.

Watched my first tennis match in 2007; the final on Wimbledon ('Twas a wonderful British summer day ). My first full match was Gasquet/Murray Wimbledon 2008, started watching all the GS in 2009 and started following the full tour in 2011 ().

So yeah, basically the noughties.
