Start following Marin Cilic and you'll never lose interest in tennis

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

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).

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.

Lneders: One thing people need to understand about this so-called weak era is that it was 'weak' for Federer on HC and grass and for Nadal on clay (Federer on clay too Nadal apart) because they were so much better than anyone else, for any outsider the era couldn't possibly be any harder, during 5+ years you had to either beat the best grass/HC player ever or the best clay player ever in every single Slam just to get 1 Slam title.

Luckily my love for Tennis got rekindled early in 2012, so for me it's going to be a while before any interest is lost especially considering the fact 2012 was an exciting year imo.

Fourth consecutive Rafole GS final at RG made me less interested about tennis than in a long time. But Rafa's upset loss rekindled my interest. Not because of Rosol's epic playing but because that meant there won't be 5th consecutive Rafole GS final, and the bottom half is very open (I'm still gutted Ferru lost to Murray, he could've made it to final). And Fed beating Nole was refreshing too, there was two different players than in previous four slam finals.

I guess the fact all slams were won by different players was what made it good for me.

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.
